Samsung stunned the smartphone arena with the launch of Galaxy S3 this year. However, now the South Korean tech titan has been rumored to pull its socks for the launch of the successor of the hottest selling Android smartphone.
Yes! The talk is about Samsung Galaxy S4 – which has become the hot topic for tech gossipers across the globe since past few weeks.
A recent report by Christian Post has alledgly claimed that the upcomnig handset will be coming with Exynos S450 chipset with 2GHz quad core Cortex A15 processor and 13MP rear camera.
Adding to that reports in the past have also indicated that the next-generation flagship smartphone will be unwrapped at the European technology expo this winter, by the company officials and local parts suppliers, according to a recent report by Korea Times.
Further, reports are also rife that Galaxy S4 is expected to be released during the first half of 2013, featuring the first-ever “system-on-a-chip.” According to a report by Digital Daily, the new processor is currently codenamed “Adonis.”
Back in August, prior to the unveiling of Galaxy Note 2 at the IFA expo in Berlin, there were rumors stating that the phablet will have a 13MP rear shooter, but Samsung launched the device with an 8MP camera instead. Hence, the current rumors regarding Galaxy S4 might not be too interesting for the tech enthusiasts out there.
When it comes to the Exynos 5450 chipset, the Nexus 10 tablet, which was released recently is also based on the same chipset. Hence, there is a possibility of Samsung using that processor, but, the 2GHz quad core Cortex A15 processor remains to be skeptical.
Going by the ongoing rumors, Galaxy S4 is speculated to sport a 4.99 inch 1080p Super AMOLED display and 441ppi pixel density, which is quite similar to human vision with 1920 x 1080 resolution.
Further, the rumored specifications of Galaxy S4 include curved screen using flexible screen technology, 2GB of RAM, Android Jelly Bean 4.2 operating system or higher, 16GB/32GB/64GB/128GB internal storage options, 1.9 megapixel front-facing camera with built-in Skype, 4G LTE data speed, 3200 mAh battery and a slimmer and more unique design, so as to avoid further patent lawsuits from Apple.
