Samsung Galaxy S IV to be impressive performer, but made out of plastic?
The Samsung Galaxy S IV puzzle is getting solved each day by the rumor and today’s part is about the materials it is made of. Russian analyst Eldar Murtazin claims he has already seen the Galaxy S IV and it will feature a similar plastic build like its predecessor.

Still, Murtazin believes, the Galaxy S IV adds the necessary updates and few nice tweaks that will convince users to buy it and become Samsung’s best sold smartphone.

What’s interesting is that Murtazin also claims some of Samsung-selected press (and most likely carriers) got to see the S IV behind closed doors at MWC 2013. It’s no wonder then we are seeing so many various leaks floating around.

The Galaxy S IV has just made a sweeping appearance on AnTuTu benchmarking app, and so far is said to feature a 4.99-inch 1080p display. It will allegedly come with different hardware depending on the market, but a Qualcomm Snapdragon version is likely to come in the States. All of the versions however impress with performance.

It will also allegedly come with a 13-megapixel rear camera and a 2-megapixel front shooter. Internal storage is 16GB or 32GB and expandable via microSD cards. Battery life is said to have remained roughly the same as on the Galaxy S III.

Finally, Murtazin reassures that the S IV has already entered mass production and is completely ready for the official unveiling on March 14th in New York.
