The war between Apple and Samsung is continuing to heat up. Days after the release of the iPhone 5, Samsung came out with an attack ad promoting their latest available smartphone – the Galaxy S3 (video below) and are reportedly readying the next generation Galaxy. While there no definitive reports of the Samsung Galaxy S4 release date, it is rumored to be released in February. This is slightly different than Apple’s releases as they have been known to tackle the holiday season, but it looks like Samsung Galaxy S4 release date will give Samsung a big boost in 2013. We have included everything that we know about the GS 4 below, check it out!
Samsung has yet to confirm any of the reports on specs, but here is what we know. It’s expected that the Galaxy S4 will sport a quad-core processor and depending on the country, will feature Samsung’s Exynos processor or Qualcomm’s Snapdragon. The OLED screen will be larger than that of its predecessor, the S3 (4.8 inches), and the iPhone 5’s (4 inches) – most likely 5 minches. It will also sport 4G LTE connectivity and an Android OS. All of these rumored specs look to build upon the already impressive Galaxy S3 which boasts a 4.8 inch 720p HD display, 4G LTE connectivity, Android’s 4.0 OS, and a reasonable contracted price of $199. We have included some of the mock ups of what the Samsung Galaxy S4 might look like.
Rumors have started doing the rounds about the possible release date of Samsung Galaxy S4 and its expected specs. Here we take a look at these rumors
Samsung Galaxy S3 arrived some five months ago. It is still creating huge buzz in market with lots of new features. But, rumor have begun about the next version Galaxy S4 now. The possible upgrade for the Galaxy S series for 2013 is rumored to be a more brilliant phone. It may be too early to talk about the S4; however, it is sure that we can look for a smarter Galaxy S4 next year. As per some reports, Samsung may demo the device at the 2013 Mobile World Congress in Barcelona.
What will be the Galaxy S4? Do you expect anything more on the next Galaxy S phone? Maybe, there will be a heavier rear camera, more powerful processor and RAM and more. Anyway, here we get through some hot features that are expected to be on Galaxy S4.
5-inch Display: It is hoped that Galaxy S4 will feature a 5-inch display. The current model of the series has a 4.8-inch display, which makes it the world’s largest phone in display size. Of course, Samsung Galaxy Note 2 is there with a 5.5-inch display; but, it is more a ‘phablet’ than a smartphone. Well, Samsung may design its next Galaxy S phone in order to make it more competitive to iPhone 5. There is also a talk that HTC is going to release a 5-inch One X 5, which may also get a good rival in S4 if it has a 5-inch display.
3GB of RAM: The current Galaxy S model mounts 1GB of RAM and the new Galaxy Note 2 has 2GB of RAM. As per rumors, the new S4 is to come with a whopping 3GB of RAM. You may be confused of the need for that much computing power in the next Galaxy S phone. Maybe, Samsung will be including more features to the phone. SamMobile, a Samsung-centric blog recently published images of some prototype Galaxy S4. The images seem to be showing 3GB of RAM.
13MP Camera: Samsung Updates has reported that the next Galaxy S4 will mount a heavy 13MP rear camera. It claims that it has spotted a module that shows a 13MP rear camera. It was hoped that Galaxy S3 or Note 2 would get the big camera. But, Samsung has kept up 8MP cams on those devices; and the new S4 may have the heavy camera.
“According to sources, Korean media has reported a 13MP (4208×3120) camera module that was meant to be used first in Samsung Galaxy S III and/or Samsung Note II but was omitted. According to the Korean media, the module has such parameters: 8.5(L) x 8.5(W) x 5.9(H). It will be used in upcoming Samsung Galaxy S IV,” Samsung Updates writes.
128GB of internal memory: There is a report that Samsung recently started to mass produce 128GB of memory sticks. Galaxy S3 is up in three memory variants; 16GB, 32GB and 64GB. Maybe, Samsung will be working to expand internal memory capacity of the device to the next stage, 128GB.
A Modified Design: Galaxy S3 is one of the gorgeously-looking handsets in market today. It is has an 8.6mm thick and lightweight weight body. Further, the device is known for its superb design and larger display. Of course, the next generation Galaxy S4 will be having a grand look and design. The company will certainly be producing the handset with some spectacular design features.
Of course, it is too early to talk about the next version Galaxy S4. We will have to wait for around eight months to get the device in stores as per Samsung’s Galaxy S product release pattern. The company started shipping the current Galaxy S3 in May. There is no chance that the firm will surface its new Galaxy S handset before that time period. Anyway, it will also be hitting all key carriers in the U.S. similar to its previous versions.
