Samsung Galaxy S IV rumor: expect 1080p, not an "unbreakable" display

0. phoneArena 13 Dec 2012, 16:11 posted on

The general consensus seems to be that we'll see the announcement of the Samsung Galaxy S IV released around April, so there is bound to be a good amount of speculation over the device features during the next couple of months. One main point seems to be in figuring out what to expect from the display. The newest rumors are saying earlier reports are wrong, and that we should expect 1080p, but not an "unbreakable" display...

Currently own the note 2,awesome device but if the note 3 will indeed feature a 6.3" screen then I will settle for the s3.breakable or unbreakable go Sammy.

Well it would be dumb for Samsung to have a GSIV with a 5" screen and a Note III with a 5.5" screen. They would be too similar.

Hadn't heard the Rumor about them increasing the size to 6.3" though. It all makes sense if it's true.

I'd say : SGS4 : 4.9" , Note 3: 5.9"

Does the screen size really have to get larger?

It scares when I imagine holding an almost tablet-sized phone right by my ear.

Things would really get interesting if they could make a screen that can fold in half size to use for normal phone operations and unfold to a 6 inch screen for more multimedia experiences.

Samsung makes about 15-20 phones 4.5" and below!!! Isn't that enough smartphones to find what you tinys (tiny screeners) need... They make only 2 smartphones 5" and above, can't biggies (big screeners) have a few choices to pick from!!! Geeesz.

Yes, but those are at the "middle" range, all the flagships are now above 4.5" (which personally I don't have problem with, but I can understand others who wants the best in a smaller screen)

It would be cool if they released a Flagship device with a 4.3" screen!

I agree. I wouldn't even buy the Note 2, and I KNEW it was a great phone. Just too much screen for me....

well that makes sense, if they released it with anything less than 1080p people would be in uproar because it doesnt have the latest and "greatest" Plus this goes along with the rumors of it being 5" 1080p screen

A sell out it will be. However I am more interested to see what Galaxy S IV killer Apple will come up with.

Stay tuned, apple is upping their refresh cycle to twice a year so you'll see something new and different.

If I am going with another Samsung device, it's going to be on Verizon because just recently I switched to an unlocked Note 2 and just today my data speeds have gone from 7-15mph down to a unbearable 0.20 down and it still shows H+ on my phone. I tried switching the APN and even called AT&T about it, they told me too bad because they don't support HSPA+ on unlocked devices.

Time to switch to T-Mobile, brother

I think it would be even worse on T-Mobile. I am not in a T-Mobile HSPA+ area. I am in a HSPA+ area on AT&T and LTE on Verizon. But I switched over to AT&T because I wanted to start using unlocked phones on their network and then they decided to give me 3G only but charge me for 4G service? No thanks to that!

T-Mobile is now trying to make HSPA+ as fast as LTE or close ,and that's why they're not not switching to 4G. I'm expecting close to 4G speeds on HSPA+ by T-Mobile.

I understand that, but the problem is, they only have EDGE network in my area. AT&T worked perfectly when I had an AT&T phone but since I switched over to an unlocked one a week ago, last night they seemed to have turned my HSPA+ network off.

They told u wrong. It could b a network issue, my one x is unlocked and supports hspa+ speeds

Is it an AT&T unlocked One X or the international One X?

LTE is really a batter killer. I have a Droid Razr Maxx and LTE (even when inactive) chews on the battery.
When active (expecially with 1-2 bars) it eats the battery. I think Apple is really on the right track by making a special LTE chip. Hope other follow suit.
