While the Galaxy S III is still very young and recently became the most popular smartphone worldwide in the 3rd quarter of 2012, some information of the next Galaxy S IV began appearing on the Internet.
According to a source from Korea, the Samsung Galaxy S IV will have a bigger screen, it is increased from 4.7-inch to 4.99-inch display with Super AMOLED technology. The resolution of the screen will be also increased to Full HD 1080p (1920 x 1080 pixels) instead of the 720p HD on the Galaxy S III (1280 x 720 pixels). If this is true, the Galaxy S IV will feature up to 441 ppi display, outstripping the Galaxy S III of just 306 ppi and the Apple iPhone 5 of 326 ppi. The new display promises a more crispy and smoother screen definitely, similar to what we’ve seen on the recently released HTC Droid DNA.
It is also revealed Galaxy S4 will be equipped with new-generation processor that is faster than the one on Google Nexus 10. This could be the first processor using ARM’s big.LITTLE technology. Particularly, the chipset will pack four A15s clocked at 1.8GHz and four A7s clocked at 1.2GHz and it will switch between the cores depending on the load. Overall, this is an 8-core processor but they can’t run at the same time.
Samsung has not made any confirmation on the rumors for sure because they want to keep secrets until the official announcement. In the last year, while Apple’s products can’t surprise consumers because most rumors were so accurate, new devices of Samsung are making people more interested. We always find something new each time a Samsung Galaxy phone is introduced.
Believe it or not, Samsung products have become much more popular and Apple should be scared to death because of the growth. The Galaxy S3 was just launched 4 month ago and Samsung is expected to sell over 30 million units by the end of this year. The continuing success of Galaxy S series can guarantee that the upcoming Galaxy S4 could have no competitor at all when it is launched in mid 2013. Until then, there will be a lot more features revealed, stay tuned.
