We are now into 2013 and attention has turned once again to two phones that are thought to be coming and which will shake up the mobile market, these of course are the Samsung Galaxy S4 and the Apple iPhone 6.
Samsung Galaxy S4 rumors
The Samsung Galaxy line-up of handsets has managed to grab as much hype as the Apple iPhone 5 did last year however right now rumours surrounding the Samsung Galaxy S4 are overshadowing those of the Apple iPhone 6.
The majority of websites talk about the Samsung Galaxy S4 equally as much as they do about the Apple iPhone 6. But Samsung themselves are adding more kindle to the fire as was evident at CES this year.
There have been rumours of the Samsung Galaxy S4 coming with an 8 core processor and maybe even a flexible display. Given that this seemed far-fetched, Samsung had proven that the tech is possible as they showed it in action at CES on working prototypes.
AnandTech said that interest in the Samsung Galaxy 4 has increased, with the device gaining more attention this time around and with each of the devices in the Galaxy S series there has been more attention growing.
The Samsung Galaxy S3 came out in 2012 and is still one of the best smartphones out there. With Samsung having unveiled this new tech, they are saying that they can top the success of the Samsung Galaxy S3 and this could mean that fans of the devices will not consider upgrading to another handset before the release of the Samsung Galaxy S4.
The downside to this is that it could affect sales of the current device, the Samsung Galaxy S3. However maybe Samsung will bear in mind what Steve Jobs said and that is that it is better to cannibalise your own phone sales than let competitors do it.
