The Samsung Galaxy S III may have been the hit of 2012, but that hasn’t stopped rumors from circulating about the Samsung Galaxy S IV, the as-of-yet-unannounced successor to the hit Android-powered smartphone.
So far, rumors point to the Galaxy S IV sporting a 4.99″ 1080p Super AMOLED 441 ppi screen with the Exynos 5450 chipset (though we’re a bit skeptical of this due to battery life constraints) and quad-core Cortex-A15 CPU under the hood. In addition, the smartphone may pack a 13 megapixel camera, something the Galaxy Note II was supposed to have but never saw the light of day due to Sony’s inability to make enough sensors and a deal with LG for the Optimus G. It seems highly unlikely that Samsung would stick with an 8MP shooter, a staple for the last three Galaxy S smartphones.
Korean site Asiae referenced the new 4.99″ 1080p Super AMOLED screens that Samsung is supposed to show off at CES in January. Unfortunately, these rumors are very light on details and we may have to wait until CES to see if Samsung shows off the 1080p Super AMOLED displays. As for the Galaxy S IV itself, we probably won’t see the device in its real and true form until late in the first half of 2013.
