Only a few days remain until Samsung debuts the Galaxy S4 at its Mobile Unpacked event on March 14 at Radio City Music Hall in New York, however that doesn’t mean the leaks and rumors will stop. Several updates and one exciting new rumored spec stand to make Samsung’s upcoming flagship phone even more anticipated. Rumors are now talking about floating touch and a green PHOLED display.
Lets explain these new rumors starting with the green PHOLED display. Aside from a rather interesting sounding name — this could mean a nicer display to look at and also slightly better battery life due to its efficiency. Apparently the green PHOLED technology will be about 25 percent more efficient as compared to the previous Galaxy S display.
The other interesting bit is the floating touch technology. This is expected to be similar to what we have seen on the Xperia Sola smartphone. Basically, you will be able to sort of hover over the display without actually touching it. One potential use would be to hover your finger over an image gallery to get a preview of the photos on the inside.
As we have described before, the Galaxy S4 will supposedly feature a 4.99-inch 1080p display, a Exynos 5 Octa processor or a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 processor, 2GB of RAM, a 13-megapixel camera and it will run on Android 4.2 Jelly Bean.
