As Samsung Galaxy S4 Release Date Gets Closer, More Concepts Hit The Web
The Samsung Galaxy S4 is expected to be unveiled sometime in March, but it would be nice to receive at least some teasers from Samsung. HTC is giving them for their new HTC One, but it look like Samsung wants it to be a surprise. Anyway, in the absence of any official comments or at least some leaked images, the guys from androidpit.com though about creating their own version of the Samsung Galaxy S4.
As you can see in the photo, the fantasy Galaxy S4 has a very wide display covering the while smartphone, with receiver and speaker making an exception. The interesting is that, even though it has a 5-inch screen, it still has the same measurements as the Galaxy S3.
So the front of the phone seems to have pretty much the same appearance as its predecessor, but when you look at its back you can see an obvious difference. The case isn’t made of the same cheap plastic, instead the person who designed this rather appealing smartphone made it out of glass (just like the iPhone 4) featuring some translucent engraved rectangles which makes it easily mistaken with Google’s Nexus 4. Another cool addition is the battery of the Galaxy S4 which can be charged wirelessly.
To make a short list of the device’s technical specs it’s worth mentioning that it has a 5-inch full HD display, it is powered by the Exynos 5 Octa-core 1.5Ghz processor, has 2GB of RAM and 16GB of internal memory which can be expanded via microSD. It also, sports a 2,800 mAh battery, and a 13 MP rear-facing camera with full HD video recording capabilities. Of course, Android 4.2 Jelly Bean is mentioned, as well.
Now, to get serious and stop dreaming, some of these specs actually match most rumors that appeared over the past couple of weeks. The Samsung Galaxy S4 is expected to sport a 5-inch display which will probably have a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels (we’re talking about a flagship smartphone after all). The amount of RAM would normally be 2GB, so they got it right with this one, as well. The operating system that comes along with the newest Samsung high-end handsets is usually the newest one available, so Android 4.2 Jelly Bean seems to make sense. And the 13MP camera is specified in basically all reports, so this might be accurate as well.
Now, the only doubt I have is related to the CPU. Yes, it would be awesome if the Galaxy S4 would come the Exynos 5 beast under the hood, but recently appeared rumors say that the device will rather pack a Qualcomm processor. The Snapdragon S4 Pro seems to be out of the picture, so the only possibility would be the new Snapdragon 600.
However, considering that one Samsung smartphone is already sporting a Qualcomm chip, namely the US version of the Galaxy S3, I want to believe that the Galaxy S4 that will be released in North America will feature the Qualcomm Snapdragon 600, and the international model will indeed come with the Exynos Octa-core.
But again, androidpit.com designed the phone how they though it would look best and added the hardware they hope the device will include. Lets just hope the official release will match these specs.
