Report: Samsung Galaxy S IV to have Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 inside; boot screen leaks
While earlier speculation swirled around the idea that the Samsung Galaxy S IV would be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 processor rather than the expected Samsung Exynos Octa, an insider is passing along the word that this is no longer speculation. According to this anonymous person who is close to the Samsung camp, issues with overheating have forced the Korean manufacturer to scrap plans for using its home grown silicon and instead it will turn to the Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 to power its latest flagship smartphone.
 
We know that the HTC One is going to have a 1.7GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 under the hood, as will the LG Optimus G Pro. The Samsung Galaxy S IV will have a 1.9GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 under the hood, allowing users of the phone to enjoy the slightly higher clocng on the Exynos chips, k speed. Along with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 600, the Samsung Galaxy S IV will have 2GB of RAM and will be available in 16GB, 32GB and 64GB versions. Besides passing along word that the Samsung Galaxy S IV will have a home button, the insider also says that the dimensions of the phone will be 140.1 x 71.8 x 7.7mm and the handset will weight 138 grams. It will have a more squared off design meaning that it will not resemble the Samsung Galaxy S III as originally thought. The squared-off decision seems to confirm what some leaked photos of cases for the phone suggested. The Samsung Galaxy S IV will have aluminum sides with a plastic back, according to the source. It will be available in black or white.

So to sum things up, the Samsung Galaxy S IV will be equipped with a 4.99 inch FHD SoLux display (no AMOLED glass here) with a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 under the hood. 2GB of RAM is aboard and native storage is available in 16GB/32GB/64GB variants. A 13MP camera is on back and there will be a removable battery. Oh, and before we forget, the picture alongside this article is said to be the boot screen of the eagerly awaited model.
