Why wait for Samsung to lift the lid on the Galaxy S4 when the rumor-mill is putting together a pretty decent picture of what to expect already?
There’s nothing quite like jumping the gun and deciding for ourselves what will or might be in the pipeline for no doubt the most impressive Smartphone in the history of Android. Flexible and near unbreakable touchscreen are so far topping the bill, which seem more than likely given Samsung’s prowess in this area of technology.
Among the other rumored specs and features the Samsung Galaxy S4 may ship with is a quad-core processor clocked at around 2GHz minimum, up to 3GB of RAM and 440PPI resolutions – a Retina-display killer if ever there was one.
With regard to those all-important release dates, this is where things become a little less certain as it may in fact come to be a case of Google having the final say on the S4’s release, rather than Samsung. The reason for this is the way in which most of the tech community and the world’s consumers in general are largely expecting an Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie release date some time during 2013, which is also expected to be the OS the S4 debuts with.
Given the logistical nightmare that has been rolling out Android Jelly Bean updates since launch, chances are Samsung will not be looking for a repeat debacle and will almost certainly therefore launch the S4 with Key Lime Pie right out of the box.
Neither Samsung nor Google has yet given any mention to the progress or the existence of Android Key Lime Pie, with release date rumors spanning anywhere from April to October. In either case, the new build of Android will almost certainly debut with a new Nexus Smartphone before being made available for use with other devices, which could see the wait for the Galaxy S4 launch stretch even further.
