It feels like an eternity of waiting for Samsung’s upcoming Galaxy S4 smartphone. The next flagship device from the company is expected to improve even further on the amazing Galaxy S3, with hardware upgrades that consumers are going to find hard to resist. An official unveil is just weeks away, but for those that are not aware it looks like storage issues are going to be a thing of the past with the S4.
The HTC One is now official of course, which means that there is added pressure on Samsung to deliver a handset that is at least on par with the impressive hardware specs that HTC have brought to the table in 2013. It looks like there won’t be an Octa core Exynos processor on board which is disappointing, but we could finally see a 1080p based display in the region of 5-inches.
While storage may have been a problem for some of you who picked up the Samsung Galaxy S3, we’re hearing that Sammy may be making these problems obsolete with the addition of a 64GB Galaxy S4 available straight from launch. With the ever growing media demands needed these days, 16GB of storage doesn’t really cut it any more, especially when a portion of this memory is reserved for system needs.
A 64GB model would obviously be very appealing, but don’t forget that it gets even better with support for MicroSD cards. If Samsung allow a 64GB card to be equipped inside the S4, then that is a whopping 128GB of storage that users will have to play around with – enough to last you until the Galaxy S5 is out.
HTC made a mistake with their Droid DNA that had 16GB of storage, but no option to extend via MicroSD. If Samsung provide 64GB models at launch, then there is going to be a huge demand for the S4 without doubt. One potential disappointment though is that there may not be a Pebble Blue or Titanium Grey variant any more.
SamMobile have it on good authority that Samsung will be offering six variants of the Galaxy S4 at launch, but only in black and white. Let us know what you think about this and whether you are interested in a 64GB Galaxy S4, but with a Snapdragon-based processor instead of the Exynos chip.
