That would make the most sense and be better for everyone.

No it seriously wouldn't! I prefer smaller screen sizes starting form 4.3 ending at 4.7... 5 is just too big, and from the looks of it, just about every display is going to be a 5 incher 1080p which I think is extremely stupid and I am sure I am not the only person on the planet who prefers smaller screens than 5 inches.

If they can keep the phone the same size as the s3 but reduce bezel and there is plenty on the s3 which may just allow then to fit a 5" screen... Example the RAZR m has a 4.3" screen in a 4" screen phone so there's no reason why a 5" can't be possible on a 4.8" screen phone... The s3 size is the max I am willing to live with but that's what I said about the s2 and when I even had a Iphone I thought to myself I don't want any bigger... Hopefully Samsung don't increase the size of the phone he'll ill be happier If they kept it 4.8" non penile 720p and just trimmed the bezels to make it smaller... I have no problem with the s3 and can't see any pixels from normal viewing distance and unless your eyes are like an inch away you won't see any... Really don't see the point of 1080p on such a small screen... Would rather have a 720 with extremely good battery than 1080p with just good battery.

unless they are planing to make it in very slim bezel ....and the out come be in same total size of the current S3 im okay with it ...other wise :/ note series would be better choice since u will get big phone anyways

Just because the screen could be a 5 incher doesn't mean the handset it going to be bigger. Bezels are almost gone now in the most cutting edge designs. The sony T has a 4.7 inch screen in a handset size no bigger than the 4.3 inch galaxy s2. The new motorola handsets have 4.3 inch screens in handsets no bigger than the iphone 4s. Its safe to assume Samsung will release the Galaxy s4 with a 5 inch screen in a handset size the same as the s3 if not perhaps a fraction smaller.

Judging by current handsets set for imminent release its safe to say the s4 will have a 5 inch edge to edge 1080p screen,at least 2 gb of ram and 2ghz quad core prcocessor.

I would definitely prefer the screen size that is
used in SIII. That is huge enough...
The bigger it gets, the more discomfort it gives.
By the way, quad-core is getting like a normal
thing...is anyone developing hexa-core
chips? :D

I think they will keep the device the same size but make the screen bigger

I would expect a huge increase in quality in just about every aspect of this phone. Why? Cause I just used my upgrade >.>

1080p display is overkill and would drain battery like hell, the S4 sounds awesome but I'll be buying the LG Nexus and probably the Nexus after it next year, I'm always on CM/AOKP on my S2 seems like a natural progression

Nexus is not for mainstream market, Galaxy S series is.. Believe me, ordinary people who wants to buy high end phones only look for iPhone and Galaxy phones.. Sad, but it's true..

Couldn't agree more.. Here in the UK all is see are Iphones and galaxies ... Blackberries use to be everywhere and I still see then regularly but not as much as I see Iphones and galaxy s2s and s3s

And what did they say about the body? Cheap plastic again?

Not plastic. Polycarbonat and friendly with environment.

i am hoping for a unibody design and some use of more premium parts

it is a big NO for unibody for me .....i dont want to lose the replaceable battery ...believe it or not some ppl cant get a day with only one battery :P

39. dickwyn (Posts: 621; Member since: 07 May 2012)

who knows maybe it will have the unibody design like the lumia 820 where the battery is user accessible

giving that a dual A15 give more performance than current quad A9 ...they might end up with the dual A15 ....u know more milking it more ...if they jump directly to quad core A15 they wont make same money as if they take it step by step

That makes sense, but then they couldn't market that it's quad core, because the average person doesn't even know what ARM is, let alone the performance difference between the A9 and the A15. On top of that Samsung releases only one Galaxy S per year, so with Tegra 4 phones most likely coming for late 2013 not using a quad core CPU would be a big mistake, and would probably cost more than it'd save. Besides, in 4 months the Exynos 5250 won't be anything special compared to the competition (rocking 1.7GHz S4 Prime or Tegra 4 CPU's). So, in conclusion I expect a Exynos 5450 clocked at ~1.7GHz, which should eat everything elses benchmarks for breakfast. Well, except Tegra 4 (they should be about equals).
