Galaxy S4: How Samsung Can Blow Our Minds, Again

By  | 

The Samsung Galaxy S4 is one of the most anticipated phones for 2013 and it could be here in just a few months. There have been many rumours surrounding it, along with concept photos and videos. It has been said that the device could be very thin, it may have a laser keyboard and it could have the bendable or flexible display. The device may even come as soon as April.

Samsung Galaxy S4 rumors roundup

Samsung pack a great deal into their handsets, but what would you like to see on the Galaxy S4 when it is released?

It goes without saying really that fans of the device want it to come with the latest Android OS. This could possibly be Jelly Bean 4.2.2, however on the wish list is Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie.

A display of 5 inches in 1080p HD would make the device ideal and not too large. As the Samsung Galaxy S3 has a display of 4.8 inches, a 5 inch display should not be too hard for Samsung to deliver and fans to accept.

Of course there have been rumours about the flexible displays, but more than likely this won’t be seen until 2014 due to production measures. Samsung could introduce and edge-to-edge display and they might even wrap it around the bottom of the display, which would set it apart from competitors. Imagine how cool it would be to watch your text messages scroll down the display and off the bottom of the handset. This would be a fantastic way to introduce the YouM display.

A better camera is on the wish list and Samsung have to understand that this doesn’t mean adding in more megapixels to get a better image.

Some makers of phones are moving into 13 megapixels, however an 8 megapixel camera can take photos that are flawless and Samsung should move onto better sensors with the Galaxy S4. Better HDR is needed, along with a front facing camera with a wider angle and the camera should have better images in low light without needing to change the ISO settings.

Battery life should be better as Samsung handsets typically have batteries of around 2000mAh. The Samsung Galaxy S4 should have a battery similar to that of the Droid Razr Maxx at 3300mAh or better.

LED notifications should be on the next device as they were for the current version. More flexibility could be included along with customisation out of the box when it comes to the lights colour and how long the signals last for different meanings.

To wrap it up, we could get an octa-core Exynos processor with 3GB RAM to keep things running smooth. Does that sound about right?
