Samsung Galaxy S4 U.S. Rumors: 5-Inch Display, Snapdragon 600
With the Samsung Galaxy S4 set to be announced tomorrow at an event in New York City, rumors about its features continue to swirl with the latest suggesting that the Galaxy S4 bound for the United States will feature a 5-inch display, a 13MP camera and a Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 quad-core processor.
Tomorrow, at an event in New York City, Samsung will take the curtain down on the Samsung Galaxy S4, revealing the next-generation Galaxy S for the world to see. Since the end of last year, rumors have been swirling about the device, set to replace the Galaxy S3 as Samsung’s most current flagship, and today, just ahead of the event, we’re hearing more whispers about its features.
Past rumors indicated that Samsung might be including either a 4.99-inch 1080p display or a 5-inch 1080p display, a 13MP camera, and a quad-core processor on board. The processor has said to be coming in two different flavors with some regions getting a quad-core Snapdragon 600 processor from Qualcomm and others getting the Exynos 5 Octa from Samsung.
Today, Bloomberg has chimed in saying that the U.S. Galaxy S4 will feature a 5-inch display, 13MP camera and a Snapdragon 600 processor instead of the Exynos 5 Octa. This adds up with previous rumors about the U.S. version of the Galaxy S4 and it’s looking like these features will indeed be on board the Galaxy S4 when it touches down in the United States.
The report however disputes previous rumors that have suggesting eye scrolling technology saying that the device will feature the ability to track eyes to pause videos but that the Galaxy S4 won’t allow users to scroll pages using their eyes.
Samsung is said to be including a number of new smart features inside the Galaxy S4′s software to complement Android 4.2 Jelly Bean. Another rumored feature, Samsung Orb, is said to be the company’s version of Google’s Photo Sphere, software that allows users to take 360-degree panoramic photos.
In the U.S., the Galaxy S4 has been been rumored for both AT&T and Verizon though other carriers like Sprint and T-Mobile, which both hosted the Galaxy S3 and Galaxy S2 will likely be on board as well.
Galaxy S4 release date rumors suggest that the phone will be heading to shelves in the U.S. in May or June, after a release in Europe which is said to be taking place sometime in April.
