We all know that Samsung is not going to stop their smartphone onslaught on the Android train with the Galaxy S3, as there were already whispers of the Samsung Galaxy S4 going around in recent memory. The thing is, the upcoming flagship device from Samsung is now riding on another crest of rumors, where the Galaxy S4 is said to arrive in April 2013 alongside S Pen functionality.
So far, what are some of the speculated specifications of the Samsung Galaxy S4 which has been bandied about? We are looking at a quad-core Exynos 5440 processor that relies on either 28nm high-K metal gate technology, or ARM BIG LITTLE architecture, while falling back on the A7 CPU that will work alongside a more beefy A15 unit when some heavy lifting on the processing front is required.
Of course, the Galaxy S4 has no business being a flagship smartphone for Samsung if it lacks a 5” Full HD AMOLED display, so that is what it will apparently be getting. Couple that with a 13-megapixel camera that is crammed into a 9.2mm thick body, one cannot help but wonder whether the slight increase in its waistline has anything to do with accommodating the S Pen.
Assuming all whispers of the Samsung Galaxy S4 with S Pen functionality turn out to be true, this would definitely place the Galaxy S4 a furlong in front of its competitors where productivity on-the-go is concerned. Still, only time will tell whether this rumor is true or not, so let us just play the patience card now, shall we?
