Too early to tell. And don't all AT&T Samsung's hand sets end with a number 7 for AT&T? Wait till next May when Samsung unveiled GSV.

you will see a GS 4 with some very minor improvements of gimmicks features
same old thin cheap plastic and plenty hype. my advise watch LG in 2014 android market.apple will be doing the same too like samsung after all thats where samsung stole their marketing from.

Every opportunity to have an open mind and be objective about Samsung gives clowns like you the leeway to show your folly.

What more do people like you want in a high-end smartphone? Honestly, the iPhone 5S was even more incremental and insignificant than that of the Galaxy S4.. The biggest improvements were the GPU, a negligible boost in the camera and some fingerprint scanner tacked on. The S4 brought some much needed hardware improvements over its predecessor.

Things the S4 had over the S III?
- A much better display [brighter, more energy efficient, and accurate]
- 1080p made a noticable difference over 720p since the S III used PenTile.
- A far better CPU/GPU combo
- More hardware implementations for developers to utilize
- Software and some UI elements did improve as well
- The camera is all-around better
- The battery life is has improved
- More better design engineering (fitting a bigger display in the same physical dimensions, thinner, lighter)

You can bicker irrationally all you want about Samsung's smartphones. But the fact is, no phone is going to turn into a skateboard at this point. We're going to see incremental improvements to what's vital and important at this point. Things like display quality, battery longivity, camera quality, processing power etc..

well the problem I have with samsung is all the bloat they put on it on the S4 even though the hardware was there the phone still manage to stutter and yes it is not the hardwares fault but touchwiz is just as heavy as when sense 3.0 came out or even worst. I just hope they remake their UI which could lead to more people which hate it to get their devices.

I still think its stupid that they are going higher then 1080p for smartphone screens 6 inches and under i mean really? Just another lame marketing excuse i guess, i mean my S4's screen is allready sharp enough in my opinion, so at some point are we going to have phones with 700ppi or higher lol!!

marketing gimmick or not 4k screens will be intorduced and then they will zoom in with a microscope and want to force you to believe that it makes a difference. look at what they did when introducing that 2k phone... in my opinion 1080p is good enough.

It was mentioned that 1440p screens might actually render desktop websites on mobile displays a little more accurately and less wonky. That's one practical benefit of the resolution boost.
