In less than 10 days, Samsung will present their next Android flagship at a press conference in New York that will be watched around the world. Expectations are already enormous. The Russian smartphone clairvoyant Eldar Murtazin put a slight damper on things, though, when he said he was sure that the Galaxy S4 – like it's predecessors — would again be made only of plastic.
Galaxy S4's specs are no longer secret as most of the details have already been leaked to the press (a 4.99-inch display, eight-core Exynos 5410 processor with 2GB of RAM are all but certain features). Only the design is a giant question mark. But if you believe Murtazin, we shouldn't be expecting any surprises.
As Murtazin writes on the blog MobileReview.com:
The Galaxy S4 will be made of the same material as its predecessors. The model will again be long and passionately criticized.
According to Murtazin, nothing significant about the design of the Galaxy S4 will be different than the previous variants. Murtazin says he's basing his observations on the experience had testing the device last week at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona.
Why should you believe him? Well, this is the same tech reporter who was the first to foretell the correct Galaxy S4 launch date. His forecasts in the past have been spot-on.
We'll know by March 14th whether or not he is right. Would you be disappointed if the Galaxy S4 was again made of plastic?
