Oh I haven’t grown up of Galaxy S3 and its annoying ‘inspired by nature’ kindness yet and the world has already gotten the news of Samsung Galaxy S4 coming in March 2013. It’s not surprising yeah, we can all guess Samsung will be launching the next generation phone of Galaxy S series next year, but it’s too early and unexpected and exciting to already hear the rumors of the ‘next big thing’ by Samsung.
Reported by Korea Times, the Galaxy S4 is expected to be unveiled at MWC in Barcelona next year and will have a larger 5-inch OLED display (.2 inches more than Galaxy S3’s display size). The phone may or may not feature the flexible display technology, which in my opinion will be more on the ‘not-gonna-feature’ side because that’s simply not happening anytime soon – atleast, not with the great hardware Galaxy S4 is going to feature.
About the processor it’s only said that it’ll feature Samsung’s in-house quad-core Exynos processor chip. And the phone will ‘definitely use’ LTE networks. No official word on RAM but we can expect it to be 2GB, at-least.
The Galaxy S4 will have the same design philosophy of ‘too-much’ rounded corners which in their terms is ‘made for humans’ and ‘inspired by nature’. The Galaxy S3 design-wise and software-wise was a huge huge disappointment and it didn’t have the kindness of nature’s serenity which they seem to claim so proudly in their Ads or everywhere we read read a designed by Samsung Galaxy S3 board.
Anyway, the Galaxy S3 sold out well with 20 million phones already in the hands of people around the world. And Samsung expects to pass the 30 million mark by the end of year.
So what are your expectations from the Galaxy S4? Sure we all want it to be not ‘inspired by nature’ but what else? Hardware and software-wise. Do tell us in the comments.
