Samsung Galaxy S IV release date set for April 2013, may feature an "unbreakable" screen

Samsung Galaxy S IV release date set for April 2013, may feature an
Yeah, that's what we want to see - more rumors and info about the Galaxy S IV! What's undoubtedly the most successful series of Android models will surely return next year for another record-breaking launch.

The thing is that this latest rumor suggests that Samsung will be looking to release the Galaxy S IV in April 2013 - a month earlier than the Galaxy S III, which was launched in May this year. The sources do not bother to explain why they think so, but on the other hand, they let us know that Samsung might have a secret weapon in the works for the GS IV. It seems that the so-called Project J (codename for the GS IV) may come with a new type of screen, which is being referred to as "unbreakable". We have absolutely no idea how this "breakthrough" unbreakable screen has been achieved, but if this really turns out to be true, then it will be one great selling point for the Galaxy S IV.

In addition, the sources confirm our expectations of a larger and higher-resolution screen, possibly one with pixel density of 441 ppi - a big upgrade compared to the Galaxy S III's 306 ppi. If the GS IV indeed has a 441 ppi screen, then it's safe to say that it will probably feature a 5" display with 1080p resolution - same as the recently launched HTC DROID DNA for Verizon Wireless.

With such an amazing screen, if Samsung has really managed to make it unbreakable, we have no other option but to get super-excited about this eventual April release of the Galaxy S IV!

If screen is flexible, it may become unbreakable.

That's what I'm talking about! Awesome find. But they'll probably put a glass on top of it, to prevent bending and scratching

Except for....time, f**k I don't know. Well if it comes to that, I guess it would be irrelevant.

besides the screen, people would really appreciate a better build quality. they should try something other than plastic.

The build quality of a product is so much more than a sturdy material. A tank can be complete fail regarding an overall quality no matter how hard armor you put on it. Anyway, the S3 is an excellent quality product (apart from being prone to screen cracking at a certain angle of impact ) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OuTG6qIOwZA&feature=youtube_gdata_player https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fhoF564nJ_Q&feature=youtube_gdata_player https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dreLmWjzv_Q&feature=youtube_gdata_player

yeah, a tank is only as tough as the nuts and bolts holding it together.

I totally doubt that

i'm pretty sure the unbreakable display IS Samsung's flexible YOMU Display or whatever it's called.

This time we dont want saturated colors but accurate colors with details like True HD IPS panel and some real innovation in camera section like lumia 920.

5. redmd

Posts: 1872; Member since: Oct 26, 2011

I think the real innovation should be the pureview 808.

Don't understand why people are fussed about the "saturated colours". You can change that in Display Profile setting to make it less "saturated", or if you are an overly colour sensitive psychopath you can use an adjustment app to change the RGB profiles. The screens are "saturated" only because of the factory samsung settings.

Hmm... My friend got a self-photo of him taken by iPhone 5 with IPS retina whatever. He took a photo of me with my phone which was Galaxy Note 2. Now, FYI I have a premature grey hair, nothing to be proud of, but obvious as hell. It is shame to say my grey hair was indistinguishable with his dark hair on IPS Your point is? I like the vivid HDR like color of AMOLED displays much better than the washed out, too bright, like an over exposed photo feel of most IPS screens.

My preferred screen size is 4".... It really sucks that every time they come out with a new device they have to increase the screen size. But 4" is my preference and everybody has their own too. And i would love an unbreakable screen... hurry up samsung. !

instead of wanting a 4in phone you should say you want a phone with a really thin form and size
