Samsung Galaxy S4 spec and feature rumors are becoming rife to say the least, but with such abundance comes the ability to note patterns and draw some pretty exciting conclusions. This week’s are certainly no exceptions to the rule and in some senses are too good to be called rumors – Samsung has unveiled an octa-core Exynos processor which is now largely expected to feature as the powertrain of the unannounced Galaxy S4 Smartphone.
Reports and wild guesses had long suggested that the Samsung Galaxy S4 would be the first Smartphone in the world to come loaded with an almost offensively fast eight-core processor, though some had written off the idea as pure fantasy. Given the fact that Samsung has indeed used CES 2013 to reveal to the world its first octa-core processor however, it seems that in this instance the skeptics may be the ones in for a dose of humble pie.
What’s more, the astonishingly intricate makeup of the eight-core Exynos processor is also said to put the lowest possible demand on battery power, adding up to a chip that could well and truly revolutionize mobile technology in multiple forms. In fact, Samsung has claimed that up to 70% less power is used by the Exynos 5 as the processors currently used by the company, which in turn means that the Samsung Galaxy S4 could launch with an exponentially longer battery-life than anything we’ve seen to date.
Meanwhile, rumors continue of a Galaxy S4 that will hit the market later this year with an unbreakable/flexible display packing 440ppi resolution, up to 3GB of RAM, a 13-megapixel camera and perhaps Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie in the driving seat – depending on the eventual release date.
Samsung is expected to announce the arrival and the launch date of the Galaxy S4 at a dedicated event shortly after the close of the 2013 Mobile World Congress in Barcelona.
