Samsung Galaxy S4 will debut in less than 12 hours at an event held by the South Korea-based phone maker in New York. Unofficially, the Samsung Galaxy S4 is not a secret anymore, after new sources have published several detailed photos of the new flagship smartphone, along with a complete list of technical specifications.
Apparently identical with the shady terminal teased by Samsung earlier this week, the new Samsung Galaxy S4 is a reminiscent of its predecessor, the popular Galaxy S3. According to the Chinese website IT168.com, the smartphone comes equipped with a 4.99-inch display with full HD resolution, weighs 138 grams and has a body that is only 7.7 mm thick.
Samsung Galaxy S4 will change the quad-core chipset used by its predecessor with a big.LITTLE octo-core unit. More precisely, the new Samsung Exynos 5 Octa SoC uses a quad-core module with ARM A7 cores optimized for an ideal balance between battery life and performance, and a quad-core module based on ARM Cortex A15 cores clocked at 1.8 GHz, which will be there to help the smartphone when a lot of processing power is required.
The 3D acceleration and video rendering tasks are handled by a PowerVR SGX 544MP GPU. The new GPU that powers the Samsung Galaxy S3 is clocked at 533 MHz and it will bring performance somewhere between the iPad 3 and iPad 4.
Galaxy S4 also comes equipped with 2 GB of RAM, 16 GB of internal storage and microSD card support. The 8 megapixel camera of its predecessor, the Galaxy S3, was replaced with a 13 megapixel sensor, capable of video capture at full HD resolution.
There are a couple of interesting features, too, like the Eye Tracking technology used for scrolling documents using nothing by the eyes, or the pen-free S Pen feature – a feature that allows the user to preview files, videos, or documents by simply hovering your finger over the display, in a similar way the Air View works with the S Pen.
More official details, and probably the confirmation of the above mentioned rumors will be revealed at 19:00 EST, at the press event held by Samsung in New York. Stay tuned as we will bring you the latest news about the new flagship smartphone, the highly-anticipated Samsung Galaxy S4.
