Samsung Galaxy S4 Monster Specs To Nuke Rivals, Shorter Contracts Needed (Rumors)

By  | 

There are new rumours going around that Samsung have already begun work on the next generation of the Galaxy S phone in the shape of the Samsung Galaxy S4. This device is said to take a large leap in technology, according to reports that have come in through a Korean news agency.

Samsung Galaxy S4 rumors flying again

Reports are saying that the Samsung Galaxy S4 will have one of the best cameras to be found on any smartphone in the shape of a 13 megapixel camera.

Rumour has it that the Samsung Galaxy S4 will have an OLED display that takes less power and gives longer life than what’s on the Samsung Galaxy S3. On a side note, Samsung revealed their 55 inch OLED TV in 2012 at CES, for $7500. This is expected to be out in the fall.

The Samsung Galaxy S4 is thought to be coming with an OLED display measuring 4.8 inches. The screen may be in-cell tech and this could ensure that the S4 is lighter and slimmer than the Galaxy S3. It is thought that the device may come in the form of 32GB, 64GB and 128GB and have a 2GHz quad core processor, along with 3GB of RAM and a huge 3200mAh battery. There may be a camera of 1.9MP on the front, which would be certified for use with Skype.

It is thought that the Samsung Galaxy S4 may be introduced to the mobile world at the MWC, which takes place in Spain in February 2013. If this is true then carriers should seriously consider offering shorter contracts given the state of updates (even Apple brought the iPad 4 only 8 months after the iPad 3).

The good news is that Samsung may have turned their backs on the glossy plastic look and make the S4 more durable when it comes to materials. Of course at the moment there is no official word from Samsung. Perhaps they are taking a leaf out of the book of Apple and keeping quiet to drum up more hype about the upcoming handset. After all it worked well for the Galaxy S3.
