We have been talking a lot lately about the BlackBerry launch of their 2 new devices and then there has been a lot of discussion on the rollout of Windows Phone 7.8 as well. The Surface Pro embargo lifted yesterday and the emails have been plentiful on that new tablet from Microsoft. There is obviously no shortage of iPhone or Apple rumors either. For our Android readers let’s take a break and throw some Sammy rumors that are hitting regarding the massively successful Galaxy S smartphones and the upcoming announcement for the 4th version.

One source has suggested that we could be seeing invites go out after this months WMC in Barcelona for a March 15 announcing of the Galaxy S IV. This would make for a release date of April. Just like previous versions the SGS4 will be a heavyweight in the specs arena:

  • Exynos 5 Octa (8-Core) CPU
  • Mali-T658 (8-Core) GPU
  • 5 inch Super AMOLED Full HD Screen
  • 13 Megapixel Rear Shooter 1080p Video @ 30FPS!
  • 2 Megapixel Front Shooter with 720HD Videos
  • Android 4.2.1 Jelly Bean

The GT-I9500, or Galaxy S IV is also said to be coming in two colors black and white. I wouldn’t look for much in the way of a design change, why mess with brilliant looking device. Stay tuned for more and if you like having the latest a greatest device and you have an upgrade, a couple more months might get you a loaded out SGS4!

  1. I’m not interested at all in a 5 inch phone. If these specs turn out to be true Samsung is just throwing tech specs at the wall and hoping to put pressure on Apple. There is zero need at this moment to introduce Octo-core CPU and GPU.

    In the end Samsung can do this because they are a chip manufacturer so won’t be paying through the nose. If you’re another OEM and want to try the same thing you’ll be paying Samsung a handsome sum and still be subject to a chip shortage.

    Now as a business owner i’d be pulling the same tactics. Use your built in advantages as much as you can.

  2. i must admit, i am interested in a 5′ phone for sure, but less interested in a multicore proc, crap load of ram and blah blah blah….i want to see the software innovation that comes along with it. thus far google and samsung have been doing fine in my book, lets see what they come up with.
