Rumor – Samsung Galaxy S IV

Here is the latest rumor about the new Galaxy S IV.

We hear that the Galaxy S IV will launch in late February 2013, and will have inside Samsung’s Exynos 5450 chipset with a quad-core Cortex-A15 processor, and a 13MP camera.

A 13MP camera wouldn’t be crazy, but don’t get your hopes up. Samsung’s Galaxy Note II was also supposed to have a 13MP sensor, but the company went with the old 8MP sensor instead. Sony couldn’t make enough due to other phones that they had deals with. This time it may be different, and Samsung could be going all-in for 2013.

Besides the camera and chipset rumors, a few days ago it was mentioned that Samsung may be unveiling their own 5-inch 1080p smartphone display at CES 2013, in order to take on HTC. HTC was the first to launch a 5-inch 1080p screen. Rumors have it that Samsung’s 5-incher will be used in their Galaxy S IV.

We expect a powerhouse of a device with the Galaxy S IV, however, we will take these rumors likely until we hear more, hopefully at CES come January 2013.

They say that the Galaxy S IV will be officially revealed at Mobile World Congress but that happens in late February. However, Samsung has said that the February launch date for the Galaxy S4 are “not true,” so we’re not really sure when to expect the new phone.
