Samsung Galaxy S IV to launch in April with S Pen functionality?
Here is a juicy rumor fresh out of Korea - the Samsung Galaxy S IV might be the first handset in the series to launch with an S Pen and the accompanying functionality as Samsung is allegedly looking to unite its Note series with the flagship Galaxy S IV. This would be a huge change for Samsung and interestingly enough is allegedly confirmed by a quote from a Samsung official.

Moreover, Korean sources agree that the Samsung Galaxy S IV will launch in April.

Along the way, we are hearing more confirmations that the S IV will indeed come with a 5-inch 1080p AMOLED display, something that almost seems like a fact right now judging by what the competition is bringing.

Additionally, whispers are that the new Samsung Android flagship will run on Jelly Bean and be powered by a quad-core Exynos 5440 chip manufactured using 28nm high-K metal gate technology. It is also possible that it will use ARM big.LITTLE architecture with an energy-efficient A7 processor for basic tasks paired with A15 for more intense loads.

Other details about the upcoming Galaxy S IV are a 13-megapixel rear auto-focus camera and slightly thicker, 9.2mm body, a development that would make it very Note-like. How does this all seem to you, do you think that a slightly thicker S Pen-equipped S IV is a good idea or not?
