A new confidential information about Samsung’s much anticipated Smartphone the Galaxy S4 has just been exposed. There has been speculation that Samsung would release the forth version of their ‘Galaxy S’ line before May of 2013. This news excited many consumers ready to purchase the highly anticipated phone. The release of the phone before May is unlikely since the Galaxy S II and S III we released in April to early May. More information has recently surfaced from Samsung Lebanon’s Facebook page stating that the SIV will not be released before May of 2013. While this is disappointing for many spectators, it does confirm the name and that Samsung will continue with the “S” line.
The phone was expected to be shown at the 2013 Consumer Electronics Show (CES), although rumors say it will only show privately to top executives of phone carriers. However, images have leaked and you can expect the new Galaxy to boast a 5in screen, possibly a 13mp camera, and HD Resolution of 1080×1920 display. With Google’s low priced Nexus 4 demanding a five to six week waiting list, you can expect the SIV to be reasonably priced to compete with Google’s phone and Apple’s IPhone 5.
The new Galaxy SIV’s 5in screen with be just a tad bigger than the SIII’s 4.8in screen. It is also worth noting that as of now, there are no buttons on the front of the SIV. This could be revolutionary, given that the minimum buttons average phone that are available now have at least one button. We should also expect the new sleek SIV to be thinner than both the SIII and the IPhone 5. For all of you tech heads, the predicted specifications include a 2.0 GHz Quad-Core processor, 2GB of RAM, and a 2.0 MP front-facing camera to complement the 13.0 MP standard camera. We should expect the phone to come with Android OS v 4.2 (Jelly Bean), 16GB’s of internal storage, and have 1080 HD video recording capabilities, and much more. If there is any phone to get excited about, it is this one.
Although there has been much speculation on whether Samsung would show the new Galaxy at CES 2013 or not, a member of Sam Mobile released an image of Samsung Mobile Unpacked 2013. The event will be held on March 4, 2013 in Pyeongchang, Korea. It is very likely that at the latest, we can expect to see an official publication of the SIV by March 4, 2013 at Samsung’s Mobile Unpacked Event. This is because when Samsung announced the Galaxy SIII at an event what was called Samsung Mobile Unpacked 2012. So could we expect to see a trend of Galaxy Smart phone’s to be announced at Samsung’s Mobile Unpacking? Many hope so.
Whatever the release date may be, expect Samsung to upset the market and release a ground shaking Galaxy SIV.
