In the recent past, there have been plenty of rumours regarding
Samsung's new flagship device. One of these leaks had hinted that
Samsung Galaxy S IV may come with 5-inch 1080p screen. This news is now
being seconded by AnandTech.com, which claims to have the spotted
Samsung's roadmap at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) 2013.
to this roadmap, Samsung's new device will have 4.99-inch full-HD
(1080p) screen with 440ppi. It also reveals that this smartphone will be
debuting in Q1 2013 and is being speculated to be either Samsung Galaxy
S IV or the next device in the Note Series.
Samsung is also
claiming that thanks to new material on the AMOLED screen, the new range
of phones will be able to offer 25 percent power saving. It is
noteworthy, that most smartphone manufacturers such as HTC, Huawei, Sony
et al have already announced their full-HD contenders, so it is likely
that Samsung's next flagship will too sport the same.
As of now,
there is no official word in regards to Samsung Galaxy S IV or when this
device might debut. However, of the numerous leaks that have been
pouring from the last couple of months, the latest
claimed that the Samsung Galaxy IV may come with a S-pen stylus, as
seen in the Galaxy Note series, as Samsung looks to merge the Galaxy and
Note series to come up with a "mega-flagship".
Other reports have
indicated that the Galaxy S IV will indeed come with a 4.99-inch Super
AMOLED display with 1920x1080 resolution, giving it a pixel density of
441ppi. Additionally, murmurs are that the next Samsung Android flagship
will run on Android Jelly Bean 4.2 and feature a 2GHz quad-core Exynos
processor and an 8-core GPU, alongside 2GB RAM. It is likely to be
equipped with a 13-megapixel camera rear auto-focus camera and, at
9.2mm, be slightly thicker than the Galaxy S III.
At the recent
CES, Samsung had unveiled its new Exynos 5 Octa processor, which is an
eight-core SoC. Of course, we will have to wait for the
company to officially announce this device to know for sure if any of these romours come true.
