Perhaps so many hope in the 8-core gpu Mali T658 perhaps may be the Mali 450 MP8. Already that Samsung only use Mali T604 for tablets.

Just make the material anything but plastic, we're good.

I want my S4 (or Note3) to be light and durable, not heavy, cumbersome, and weak. Give me the best, most durable plastic with a few different finish choices please!

If it were to actually release with specs like mentioned in the article that would be amazing. I would feel sorry for apple though, they can't even keep up as it is. Now if Samsung drops a bomb like that (which will be even more devastating then the Note 2). How many lawsuits will they try and scramble to stop the release of that product..Lmao, apparently Apple was a one pony show in mobile division with Steve Jobs, now that he is gone they are doing worse then ever..

There might even be a mass suicide at apple if they see this device at CES..

LMAO!

Google + Samsung FTW ALL DAY LONG BABY!!!!

While this phone sounds like a beast, any phone that has a 5 inch screen does not deserve my purchase. Size is the same reason I'm even considering buying another phone over a gs3 for my next phone

GS III Mini?

As much of a Samsung Fanboy as I am, I wouldn't recommend the S3 mini, or any mini Galaxy device, unless it came with all that awesome power in a mini package. Just like the the Note devices are upspecced (processor), monster sized screen versions of their Galaxy S conterparts, the mini devices (because there WILL be more), should be slightly downspecced (processor), smaller sized screen versions of their Galaxy S brethren.

They should build two versions of the s4. One with a larger non removable battery but built out of higher quality materials (still has sd card slot). The other one with a smaller removable battery but lower quality materials.

All that with no mention of battery capacity or it having a removable battery.

Given the trend with all of Samsung's Galaxy devices, the chances of this having a non-removable battery are slim to non, especially since that is a card that they probably love being able to hold above almost all of the competition. Likewise, the chances of it having non-expandable memory are slim to none, considering their history with their Galaxy devices, and the fact that they probably love being able to hold this above almost all the competition, too.

As insane as I felt when the Galaxy S III was unveiled, I recovered my sanity by thinking about the Galaxy S IV. Just think, when you can upgrade, you can get the Galaxy S V, and will be soo happy that they release them on a yearly basis. because you will have s*** that is better than every previous gen, and we will all be jealous of you.

Pff, they can put 26-core CPU if they want, it will still be a Samsung and one gotta be mad to buy this plastic, having in mind that for the same money you can buy an Apple or a Nokia.

The rumored specs are too unrealistic. 8 core? maybe.. but 6 core first....

And not 2ghz- thats too extreme- 1.7 Ghz would do good.

Why 4.99 inch screen?? 5.0 inch or 4.8 will do.

8 core is already reality, some chinese company did it
2Ghz, i don't know as given sammy's record their smartphones clockspeed will be kept lower than the competition(SGS2 and SGS3) but will take the lead in performance and benchmarks
n dont youworry about 4.99, even the iphone was said to be coming with a 3.95/3.99" screen so that the pixel density reamains 32-but eventually they pit the whole 4" on it ignoring the difference of 3ppi

a note, assuming that the width of the display on the iPhone 5 is exactly the same as the width on the previous gen iPhone's, then the exact size on the diagonal is 3.96448747425722". Rounded down, it is 3.96" on the diagonal, which falls .04" short of 4". While some may argue that the measurement is too small to make a worthwhile difference, if placed beside a device with the exact same aspect ratio with exactly 4", you would notice it, even if just barely. At least with the S4, assuming that this screen size rumor is correct, it is close enough to 5" to understandably be probably advertised as such.

Not an iPhone fan, but dude seriously? Why do you think they are adding eight cores? The iPhone out bench the S3 almost in every category. These reports confirmed by Anandatech and other tech blogs like The Verge.

i dont understand 5 inch phones. i just got the nexus at 4.7 and its huge. any bigger and i wouldnt be able to use it with one hand, not to mention its already a stretch to tap items at the top of the screen.
