Rumors are a dime a dozen, so we want you to take the following article with a few fistfuls of salt. According to SamMobile, which isn’t ashamed to call themselves Samsung fanbois, here are three things Samsung is planning to launch in 2013.
As we’re approaching 2013, we’re starting to see more and more rumors detailing next-gen high-end Android devices, with the upcoming Galaxy S4 being one of them. There are plenty of reports that speculate the handset could come either at CES or MWC next year, and then hit stores in the months following its announcement.
We’ve had various Galaxy S4 rumors these days, and while we’re a long way from the actual launch of Samsung’s 2013 flagship Android smartphone, we’re apparently soon going to get a little preview of what the device could look like.
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.
