Rumors: Galaxy S IV to have 13MP camera, quad-core A15 CPU

20 November, 2012
The Exynos 5450 chipset comes up again, but can the S IV really have four Cortex-A15 cores clocked at 2GHz?

Don't forget, Samsung announced recently that they are going to begin to introduce flexible display based devices. The Note 2 was supposed to be based on one but the yield rate was too low. Christmas 2013 is going to be so unbelievably skinny, we will wonder just how we managed with our clunky 5mm thick monstrosities!

All the juicy specs are very thirsty. There's currently no problem for the specifications of almost all leading global brand mobile phones... the problem is battery life.

So before coming up the those specs, I wish you would make up a battery that would suit those high-end meat.

As long as the build quality is good so if I drop it, it aill not break the screen.

Plus the notes are always better so I think ill wait for the next note.

in pictures the S3 design looks ugly, but when u see it in real life and touch the thing with your hands, it feels and looks nice.

Samsung is going to kick the competition's ass with the S4. :> I hope it will be waterproof as well, and it will have a 3000 mAh of battery at least.

A15 era? Isn´t the s4 by qualcom already an A15? That is why the dual-core version of it is as powerful as the quad-cores of this year and the s4 pro quad.core processor is way more powerful than the quad-cores of this year. 2012 Quad-cores(A9) exept newer s4(A15).

I just hope the screen won't be PenTile and be more like the Note 2 in sub-pixels structure.

Samsung, Please don't launch mobiles so frequently if there is no major hardware/software update.
It is surely kill ur subsequent product life.

Maybe 5" is the limit

5" display does not necessarily mean a bigger phone. Going up from 4.8" to 5.0" won't make all that much difference especially if they manage to make the screen bezel even smaller.

Like the HTC Droid DNA is not a phablet. It has similar dimensions and feel of a phone rather than a phablet.

I have a note 2 and like the big screen. I will skip S4 and wait for the note 3 hopefully it will have a 6" screen. lol

" four Cortex-A15 cores at 2GHz will make minced meat of current mobile chipsets"

But isn't that what Samsung Galaxy flagships are expected to do?
