Samsung is reported to be working on the Galaxy S4, which, according to reports from a Korean news agency, will represent a huge technical leap. It’ll have one of the market’s best cameras – a 13MP offering.
Samsung Galaxy S4 rumors
The Samsung Galaxy S4 is also rumoured to have an OLED display that uses less power and so gives more life than the Galaxy S3 Super AMOLED screen. Incidentally, Samsung revealed its 55” OLED TV at CES 2012, which retails at $7,500.
The OLED screen in the Samsung Galaxy S4 is thought to be 4.8” (the same as the S3). Its screen may be in-cell tech, which may mean that the S4 will be lighter and slimmer than the S3. The Samsung Galaxy S4 may have 32, 64 and 128GB versions, with a 2GHz chip, 3GB of RAM and a 3,200mAh battery points out the source. The front camera might be 1.9MP and Skype-certified.
The Samsung Galaxy S4 is speculated to be revealed at MWC 2013 in Spain next February. If this is so, carriers might want to start offering shorter tie-ins so people can take advantage of the updates. Don’t forget, Apple brought out the iPad 4 just eight months after the iPad 3. So it looks like the manufacturers are picking up the pace to stay ahead, unfortunately if carriers don’t follow suit then there isn’t much chance for consumers to keep up.
What is good is that Samsung has learned from the criticism leveled at the Samsung Galaxy S3 and its cheap plastic looks. The S4 is supposedly set to be a bit classier and more durable. The company is staying quiet though – although this may be in order to create more hype come next year as well as keep S3 sales going strong.
