Not only has Sammy become the absolute smartphone king in 2012 based on total device sales, but it has also managed to find a high-end identity and steal the spotlight from Apple’s iPhones, even if for just a little bit.
According to a “trusted, industry-related source” Samsung will launch the Galaxy S IV at the Mobile World Congress 2013 which will be held in Barcelona from 25-28 February. Samsung has used European trade shows to launch major products in the past, so a S4 announcement at Barcelona is possible.
Long gone are the days of tiny 3 inch or 3.5 inch displays, even Apple have moved to bigger displays after years of trying to convince everyone that they aren’t needed. Samsung are leading this push to bigger, brighter and higher resolution panels and it looks like it has something special planned for the future. Somewhere in its product mix (probably the Galaxy S4 or maybe the Note 3) Samsung are trying to use a 4.99 inch display with a huge 441 pixel per inch density. According to my calculations that means an almost 5 inch display with a 1920 x 1080 resolution. Impressive! Well it would be if Samsung could actually mass produce them!
Open the Internet today and you’ll find a bunch of Galaxy S4-related rumors, all based on different, unconfirmed, reports, that we have covered thoroughly when they originally hit the presses.
Rumors emerged recently about Samsung considering a switch to LCD technology for its top of the line smartphones, due to the limited resolution that AMOLED displays can achieve. Now a new report says that Samsung will continue fitting its flagship smartphones with AMOLED screens.
This isn’t the first time we see the Samsung Galaxy S4 pop up in various leaks, but today’s report seems to shed some light on some of the future flagship smartphone’s specs and features.
While the Galaxy S3 was launched less than six months ago, the first Galaxy S4 rumors started hitting the web a few weeks ago. In fact, we’re looking today at a new Sam Mobile report that reveals that Samsung is already working on 2013 devices that would feature 3GB of RAM.
The Samsung Galaxy S3 isn’t even six months old yet, but that doesn’t stop rumors of the Samsung Galaxy S4 from already surfacing. Android Authority previously reported on the claim that the Galaxy S4 coming to Mobile World Congress 2013, just three days after the announcement of the iPhone 5. Samsung quickly shot down the idea, but that certainly did’t stop the rumor mill from turning for very long. Today’s Samsung Galaxy S4 rumor is alll about a 13MP camera module spotted online that is supposedly meant for the Galaxy S4.
The Samsung Galaxy S4, which is most likely what the Galaxy S3’s successor will be called, will be unveiled at MWC 2013 according to some, although others would deny that on their official Samsung Twitter account.
Yesterday the internet went gaga when rumors out of Korea suggested that Samsung was going to announce the Galaxy S4 at Mobile World Congress next year and then ship it a month later in March. Samsung, looking to set the record straight, sent out a tweet to get us to focus on the GS3.
