Samsung Galaxy S 4: what we think we know
The closer we get to the official Samsung Galaxy S 4 unveiling, the more hype gets accumulated around the Korean company's new flagship. And as it usually happens prior to any major announcement, the rumor mill is spinning at full speed, bringing all sorts of clues as to what the handset will have in its arsenal of features. To tell you the truth, many of the speculations we've heard so far seem quite plausible, especially since a number of them are backed up by solid evidence. Others, however, we aren't willing to trust, yet we've included them in today's Samsung Galaxy S 4 rumor round-up anyway, just to let you know what you shouldn't expect out of the upcoming handset. Read all about them below!

It will easily be the #1 selling phone of 2013, that's guaranteed.

if it was a fair game without the brainwashing advertising in the billions , Samsung will surely feel the heat from Apple , Nokia,HTC,Sony and even LG

It will be successful no doubt about it , but I expected atleast a better design. and I may be in the minority who doesn't care about the removeable battery and microsd card slot but needs better looking phone. even worse Samsung will throw many cheap copycats of this flagship model to further downgrade its value. this year is gonna be tough as competition like HTC, SONY , Nokia and even LG are making good phones.

apparently u r the one who's smoking crack, because looks don't mean necessarily better. true fact is lumia 920 does look way better than s3(and s4 if the leaks r right and if it turns out that the s4 is nothing but a bigger s3). and not just lumia 920. iphone 5,xperia z,htc one and even asus padfone infinity all look alot better than s3 and note 2(and the leaked s4)

Anyway people always keep compaining. With the unibody design: OMG no battery renovable, no micro SD card With the removable back cover: OMG plastic, cheap build quality. How the hell can we have a removable aluminum back cover?

Yes I was gonna post this too. Plastic has a longer durability and we can remove battery, aluminium is great but it has limitations. Also everyone has there own preference of what device looks good and what doesn't. I think the design is pretty decent on S4 if it is, even if it looked similar to an S3, it still looks good.

Well then don't make removable. I have a note 2 and I have never open the back. You see if samsung put a good battery in its devices there wont be no need to open it. The SD card can be placed on the side or something.

Amen brother Amen! I am so psyched the S4 is here! What makes me even more psyched is I can only expect even more improved upon features in its bigger brother!

I have nothing to say. But, these are just rumors, let's just wait for 2 days more before we get shocked or disappointed. :)

I think we'll get dissapointed instead of shocked.... I feel that samsung made a something wrong with this device..

I'd rather have initial disappointment to find out just how great things an ugly device holds over stunning looks saddened by poor viewing angles, bad battery life or laggy UI. If the worst thing you can hold against the Galaxy S4 is looking like a bezel-less Galaxy S3, Samsung did something right.

Stop the viewing angle s**t, and it's battery has been tested, it last long enough and what laggy UI? You mean touchWiz?

Just to get facts straight: it won't be made of plastic - it will be made of gorilla glass (front), metal (side) and plastic (back), with the latter being easily replaceable if you want something else though a "plastic phone" is the most durable on the market (Lumia 920). Why ppl. are overlooking the different materials is beyond me.

I guess it is because Samsung plastic feels cheap. They should start using the same polycarbonate that HTC is using.

If you think different and make believe it would be quietly brilliant to produce something incredibly creative that would be designed for humans which when starts connecting people we can all say life's good.

The design ugh. HTC One/Xperia Z looks better imo. I love Samsung I just hope the design rumour isn't true.

They do look better, but am I the only one who doesn't think the S4 looks bad at all? Made a size-accurate comparison based on leaked specs and with the thinner black bar around the screen, thinner bezel and thinner protective side cover (which will be metal), the design actually is a step-up looks-wise. Rounded yet less toyish, http://www.abload.de/img/gs4i7u4q.gif
