The Korean websites are full of rumors are details about Samsung, this time of year because the company is about to release its new high-end smartphone, reportedly named Samsung Galaxy S4. According to Korean newspaper DDaily, which cites “industry insiders”, Samsung is getting ready to unveil the Galaxy S4 and it will begin producing its components.
First of all, it looks like the Galaxy S3 won’t be so different from the Galaxy S3 in terms of design. The S4 will feature the same “organic” appearance as its predecessor, and it will also include the 3-button setup. The report says that the company has done some experimenting and tried a design with no button at all, but it looks like it took the decision to stick with the three buttons namely home, menu, and back.
The publication claims that the rumors saying the Galaxy S4 will feature an S Pen stylus just like the Galaxy note are not true, but it confirms that the device will, indeed, have support for touchless gestures. Details about the technology are only speculative, but it appears that Samsung will use the same tech utilized on the Sony Xperia Sola, which allows users to perform tasks without actually touching the display. Among other technical specifications we can name the 5-inch Super AMOLED display (which has been rumored for a long time) with a pixel resolution of 1920 x 1080.
Even though there have been a lot of rumors which claimed that the Samsung Galaxy S4 will be launched at the beginning of April, the Korean publication claims that the company will release the handset in mid-March. It seems like a good strategy, to launch the Galaxy S4 earlier, because other competitors like Sony and HTC are also preparing to unveil their own products. Samsung probably doesn’t want for all the attention to be caught by the rivals. It seems that the big battle will take place after the MWC.
With all the rumors about the Samsung Galaxy S4 coming almost every day, we have the possibility to make an idea about the appearance and hardware of the device, even if some of the rumors are incorrect. Anyway, there is a big chance that will be seeing the Galaxy S4 very soon. I hope that officially, next time.
