Samsung fans the world over are in their element at the moment, reveling in the glory that is the Samsung Galaxy S3 and the recent addition of the Samsung Galaxy Note 2. The S3 in particular has stolen the spotlight this year having broken countless Android Smartphone records and even managed to overtake the iPhone 4S for the first time in Q3.
However, any and all of the above are in some circles beginning to look like yesterday’s news as talk of the Samsung Galaxy S4 release date next year has generated expectations of all-new standards from the South Korea tech-giant.
The success of the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 and the hype surrounding the recently unveiled HTC Droid DNA has given rise to predictions that 5-inches with become the new standard screen-size for high-end Smartphones in 2013. This would appear to back up previous rumors of a 5-inch screen in the pipeline for the Samsung Galaxy S3, with resolution as high as 440ppi.
Meanwhile, separate reports have this week claimed that the Samsung Galaxy S4 has been spotted in the benchmark database of Nenamark 2 – the system used to test the highest-end Smartphones in terms of graphical performance during normal use conditions. The claims were immediately debunked however as the tests came back with rather disappointing results for a high-end device, suggesting that the Samsung GT-19400 could in fact be the Samsung Galaxy Grand – a mid-range Smartphone likely to launch in the Far East only.
Should ongoing speculation prove to be on the money, the Samsung Galaxy S4’s specs and features will up the ante significantly in the form of a 2GHz quad-core processor, 3GB of RAM and the previously mentioned Super AMOLED of titanic proportions.
