The Samsung Galaxy S4, one of the most anticipated smartphones of the year, has emerged in another rumor today with a report again claiming that Samsung has prepared eight accessories for the upcoming smartphone, thought to have a launch date set for next month and a release date a few weeks after in the month of April.
Samsung’s Galaxy S4 has leaked out numerous times over the past few weeks after originally surfacing at the end of 2012. Rumors state that the device could possibly be announced on March 15th or March 22nd at an Unpacked event separate from any trade show.
Rumors in regards to its features suggest that the high-end smartphone could come equipped with a 4.99-inch FHD display with 1080p resolution, a quad-core processor, 13MP camera, and Android 4.2 Jelly Bean. Additionally, it looks like Samsung might be prepping a handful of accessories for the Galaxy S4’s arrival.
Earlier this month, we heard about possible accessories for the Galaxy S4, eight of them in total. Those accessories have been rumored once again as SamMobile states that they will be a part of Project J, the project that apparently encompasses not only the Galaxy S4 but two other devices as well.
The Galaxy S4 accessories that have been rumored once again include:
- Clear Cover
- Flip Cover
- Protective Cover
- Extra Battery Kit
- Wireless Charging Kit
- HDTV Adapter
In addition, the Galaxy S4 is again rumored to have a large 2,600 mAh battery, up from the 2,100 mAh battery found in Samsung’s previous Galaxy S smartphone, the Galaxy S3.
Project J is also said to include two other devices, and based on their accessories, they appear to possibly be some kind of smart watch and quite possibly a Galaxy S4 Mini.
One of the projects, dubbed Project J Active Fortius, supposedly has an arm band, bike mount and a pouch as its accessories which seem to point to some kind of wearable technology, possibly a smart watch, Apple has been rumored to be building an iWatch and this could be Samsung’s rival to that.
The other device is called Project J Mini Serrano and it’s said to have accessories similar to the Galaxy S4, codenamed Altius, only it can’t take advantage of the wireless charging dock, likely due to its size.
Samsung dropped the ball when it came to wireless charging for the Galaxy S3 but it looks like it might just be preparing to make up for that with the accessories for the Galaxy S4.
Fortunately, it looks like we may only have a few more weeks until we find out for sure.
