Samsung’s next generation smartphone, the S IV is expected to be unveiled at either CES 2013, which will take place in January, or at MWC 2013, which will happen in February. The latest piece of information making its way online about the device is that it will be the first in Samsung’s Galaxy series of devices to support the S-Pen.
The fact that the device may launch as soon as April comes from the Korean website, enuri.com. Other rumours about the device that have been circulating the web suggest that the device will boast of a 5-inch display with full HD (1920x1080 pixel) resolution. There are also talks of 2GB of RAM and a 13-megapixel rear camera. The device is expected to run on Android 4.1 Jelly Bean and be powered by a quad-core Exynos 5440 chip manufactured using 28nm high-K metal gate technology.
We also hope that Samsung takes a leaf out of HTC devices and makes the build of the S IV better than the S III. The S III is one of the best smartphones available in the market today that money can buy but it does have a very plasticky build to it. You can read our review of the Samsung Galaxy S III here.
Another device we really want to see in action is the LG Optimus G2. The device is rumoured to have a 5.5-inch display with a 1920x1080 pixel resolution. In terms of other rumoured specifications under the hood, the LG Optimus G2 will have a quad-core 2.0 or 2.5GHz Krait processor, an Adreno 320 GPU and 2GB of RAM. The smartphone is also expected to run on Google’s next gen OS, Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie. The LG Optimus G2 is expected to hit the market in Q3 of next year.
