After the blockbuster success of Samsung Galaxy S3, Samsung fans’ enthusiasm to Galaxy S line tends to be on the rise. As one of the most famous brands in the world, Samsung always sets its sights on product innovation. A series source quotes claim that Samsung is putting the final touch to its fourth-generation flagship handset– presumably to be called the Samsung Galaxy S4. Here, let’s round up the latest speculation to see what it would be like and the people’s expectation for this “mysterious” product.
Beginning with the body, rumor says that the Samsung Galaxy S4 will be in black and white. Size in 140.1×71.8×7.7mm and weighs 138g, it is only 0.1mm thicker and 26gm heavier compared with that of iPhone5.
Next comes to the inside part, according to New York Times, Samsung Galaxy S4 will adopt a much more advanced processor- the Exynos 5 Octa CPU whose running speed will be up to 1.8GHz. Powered by this amazing processor with a whopping eight cores based on AMD’s big LITTLE architecture, the battery life will be extended to be longer since there are four powerful cores to perform the phone’s power-hungry functions while the other four handling other simple tasks. On the other hand, Samsung Galaxy S4 will include a 5in Full HD display with 1920×1080 resolutions. Slightly less than the newly-launched HTC ONE whose pixel density is 469ppi, the amazing display of Samsung Galaxy S4 will come out with around 440 pixels per inch (PPI). “That’s very excited and it’s exactly what I’m expecting for”, said a Samsung fan. News from CNET reports that the camera of Samsung galaxy S4 adopts the new photography technologies. With this 13-megapixel rear camera with 1080p video capability, a 2-megapixel front-facing camera, S4 can capture 300 percent more light than current competing Smartphone sensors.
CNET also claims that Samsung Galaxy S4 will include Eye-Scrolling technology that turns your eyeballs into page strollers. With this “Smart Scroll” function, you’ll be able to control it with your eyes. Yes, you read that correctly, your eyes! Also, the phone will pause videos when it detects the users’ heads moving away from the screen.
Another big news that should be on our wish list is the fact that Samsung Galaxy S4 is to run Android 4.2 with its own Touch Wiz 6.0 user interface over the top. Used by all of Samsung’s Android devices, including its smart phones, tablets and the Galaxy Camera, Touch Wiz makes major aesthetic changes to Android and brings Samsung’s ‘designed for humans, inspired by nature’ theme introduced last year with the S3 to the forefront of every device.
However, it’s not all about what’s rumored, although MOST of which haven’t already been given the green light, we’re still allowed to dream about a perfect phone, right?
So what is your opinion and what other new features you want to see when the Galaxy S4 finally launches?
