It’s hard to believe that the Samsung Galaxy SIII was released back in May this year. The phone has racked up 30 million sales. So naturally, it isn’t surprising that there is going to a Galaxy S IV and the rumor mill is already in full swing with the purported specs, features and expected release date for the successor to one of the most popular smartphones of our time.
It’s rumored that the Galaxy S IV will come with a 5-inch 1080p AMOLED display, a quad-core Exynos 5440 chip, a 13-megapixel rear auto-focus camera, and will feature a slightly thicker 9.2mm body, a change that would make the S IV very Note-like this time around, and would explain the S Pen functionality.
The Samsung Galaxy S IV might have a 4.99 inch Super AMOLED full HD display with a resolution of 1920×1080. This works out to be a mouth watering 441 pixels per inch, much higher than what the Retina display of the iPhone 5 offers. We know that Samsung is working on flexible OLED screen technology and it will be interesting to see if the Galaxy S IV features that. Recent production issues, according to DigiTimes, might force the Korean giant to go with the Super AMOLED or push back the release date for the phone if it decides to go with OLED. Samsung is expected to show off the display that will be on the newest Galaxy phone at the CES 2013.
Rumors have been all over the place when it comes to the expected release date of the Galaxy S IV. Samsung, through Twitter, officially denied the February MWC 2013 launch date recently. Our inside sources suggest that Samsung will announce the Galaxy S IV sometime in April with a May release date. But expect the tech on the phone to be flaunted much earlier at the CES and MWC next year.
