Why would they downgrade the front facing camera?
14. avataranjie (Posts: 15; Member since: 03 Dec 2011)
1.3 mp front might mean better sensor. MP doesn't matter as much as sensor does

1800 mAh is not enough ...expect atleast 2200 mAH

Hopefully it'll be better at holding a signal otherwise it's pretty useless.

my excitement has waned.
if the US version gets dual core snapdragon as well as other minute, non existant spec bumps and thats it, this will be very disapointing.
hopefully they have some new software or some other trick up their sleeve.

A sneeze could wipe the BB10 announcement off the front page.. just sayin :)
11. cepcamba (Posts: 717; Member since: 27 Feb 2012)
That's if the BB10 announcement was even on the front page. :p

SGS3 -> Who What When Where Why How etc etc etc...

I have a feeling that this thing is going to have 2GB of RAM.
24. moronman66 (Posts: 162; Member since: 09 Jan 2012)
I hope you're right, if not then maybe 1.5GB? That's what I've heard more recently
34. PackMan (Posts: 277; Member since: 09 Mar 2012)
4.8 720p super amoled + (1080p is useless unless the screen is 5"+)
1.5GB to 4GB RAM LPDDR3, that's easily possible and newer exynos and ICS already have support for that.
Exynos 4412 1.5ghz quad core.
New ISP will come along 4412 which is again going to be very good.
12Mp/2MP cameras with BSI sensor (dedicated camera button and xenon flash will also be welcomed)
ICS 4.0.4 with touch wiz 5.0
Mali 400MP4 400+ghz
2500 mAH removable battery
16 gb internal + removable microsd CLASS 10
Glass Ceramic or amorphous metal alloy(metal glass) body.
Size same as SGII

8. ironmarc89 (Posts: 52; Member since: 22 Jan 2012)
common. T-Mobile doesnt have LTE so they dont need S4. Exynos please. Then i can come back to T-Mobile with Unlimited data
9. Wildmanfan (Posts: 238; Member since: 15 Jul 2010)
All I ask is that Verizon will be one of the carriers of the phone and that the display is going to be 4.5" or bigger. If it's a 5" or higher(which I doubt), I will camp out to get this phone! Lets just hope and pray that if your a VZW subscriber, that Verizon doesn't f**k this up.
17. Skidro13 (Posts: 61; Member since: 27 Jul 2010)
oh verizon will be sure to F**k it up somehow. Probably with an ocean of bloatware and no google wallet

It says it will make you change the way you see your world ! it's exciting that is why i don't believe they will put in a s4 ! why would they if are trying to introduce there new exynos quad ! let's be believers . It is being said it can still work with lte

31. PostalJim (Posts: 46; Member since: 01 Sep 2011)
Next Nexus wont even be close to this pipedream.
47. remixfa (Posts: 14255; Member since: 19 Dec 2008)
The only thing thats a real pipe dream on ilia's list is the 1.6ghz quad core. it will probably be clocked at 1.4 or 1.5 at max to save battery. I wonder if we can clock it to 2.0ghz... that would be fun. lol
As far as the rest of it, its just a run down of the rumored specs.
50. ilia1986 (unregistered)
Oh, cmon. it's just 100 - 200mhz more. People overclocked their SGS2 to 1.5GHz without noticeable increase in battery drain.
Besides, Tegra 2 was initially clocked at 1Ghz. Samsung had to up it, and make a 1.2Ghz Exynos dual core chip. Now Tegra 3 is clocked at 1.5Ghz. Samsung is probably gonna answer than with a 1.6 - 1.8Ghz chip.

If they announce the US is only getting dual core I won't care anymore. I'll be looking for the next US quad core.

android ics 4.0.4
eynox 4412 quadcore 1.8ghz
