Samsung Galaxy S4 specs to blow you away

How are you enjoying your Galaxy S3 at the moment? Is it everything you could possibly want from a smartphone, or do you expect slightly more? The handset may have only just put its foot down in the market, but we’re already hearing of a potential successor in the Samsung Galaxy S4 and it may have one or two features that will simply blow you away.

At the moment, most of the Android discussion going on right now centers around the Galaxy Note 2 which is just launching in the US, and rightly so with some really impressive hardware specs out of the box backed up by the fact that it ships with the very latest version of Android Jelly Bean – a crucial factor in decision making these days.

Interest in the current Galaxy S3 handset seems to have died down significantly as a direct result of the Note 2 hype and even those who own one are not too happy at the moment since Samsung continues to delay on the global rollout of Android 4.1 Jelly Bean that still isn’t available in many countries at the moment.

With this in mind, you can bet that a lot of consumers are already starting to think about the Galaxy S4 and early rumors suggest that it is going to be one beast of a smartphone, with mouth-watering specs such as a 4.8-inch OLED screen, Android 4.2 Key Pie Lime and edge to edge display technology, which may end up looking something like the mock up below.

Other specs that are being whispered down the grapevine include a 13 megapixel camera, 2Ghz quad-core processor, 3GB of RAM, a ‘Skype supported’ 1.9MP front camera and wait for it, a potential mammoth of a battery in the region of 3200 mAh. Most of you will agree with us that these are truly next generation specifications and definitely those that fall in line with the caliber of a new Galaxy S smartphone launch.

Whether these are legit though remains to be seen but it’s no secret that Samsung now favors OLED materials as their preference when manufacturing displays. You only need to pick up a PS Vita to see just what a difference OLED technology makes compared to the rest, so even if the other specifications do not turn out to be true, let’s hope that the OLED part remains as smartphones now need to make the transition into OLED.

How do these initial specifications sound to you – would it be an instant purchase or not? Let us if you would like to see OLED on the next Galaxy S4 smartphone, bearing in mind that it would most likely mean an increase in consumer price as well.

I am definitely buying it if it came in the design displayed in the picture. If you asked me, the larger the screen, the better. Specs is fine too, although this is not the primary reason why I’d buy it or not. I agree with Apple here that the looks is what counts the most.

The battery life of the iPhone is the only thing apple has over Android. sold my iPhone for a Droid and couldn’t be happier. Better in every way. OLED would be awesome if it has Gorilla Glass.

It looks like a copy of an iPhone. It’s rectangular and has a screen. It also makes phone calls. It must have gotten those features from Apple.

This looks too much like a iPhone. I can’t stand it anymore, every year they come out with a new and little different phone and then they call it the Flag Ship untill it is replaced by the newer version. I have the S3 and will probably sell it, can’t afford having it anymore and well I don’t like it that much anymore.

The oled price increase is obviously worth it, we (or at least I) spend untold hours with our phones and if there’s one luxury worth having it should be the things we spend most time with. I’m disappointed more isn’t being made of the gimmicks. They are being made fun of gimmicks are important, I didnt even know my note 2 did slow motion video capture till I stumbled across it. A pile of clever tricks and gimmicks wouldn’t go astray, otherwise you just end up with what looks like a beefier “turbo” version of the last phone litkeep the… Read more »

Apple and Androids icon based U.I. really do not have for me the same appeal as the ‘live tile’ interface of Windows 8, I have owned both. Granted the number of apps for the two established systems is mind blowing but how many are usable or useful for the average punter. The only difference I’ve read, for example between Android smartphones is the hardware offerings. The beauty of Android is that because the software is open sourced and can be modified by the user if the person has skill set and a need. The other question I pose is ‘… Read more »
