The Samsung Galaxy S IV is without a doubt the most anticipated Android device this year, and while there is still no official information about the upcoming Samsung flagship, here is an extremely interesting rumor…

I absolutely loved the GSIII....My cousin let me use hers for a good while. At first it was strange moving to this from a One X...Especially the web browser. My main issue was that fact that when I scrolled up on the One X, the adress par would pop up and I wouldn't have to scroll alllll the way to the top to key in a website. But it's a small gripe....They only thing I could imagine they fix with the GSIV is the design...the GSIII wasn't a visually appealing handset to me, which is just my opinion. However, I've been one of functionality over fashion as of lately....

I want to be wowed Samsung....!!!!!!!
Does anyone else wonder what software goodies this phone will have?

Welcome to the Samsung Family of Smart Features... Who knows what all is next with the SIV, but it'll have the most of whats offered elsewhere. Me personal i'm waiting on the Note III. :)

me, I like how the rumor regarding s4 is building up and hates the note 3 rumors. 6-6.3" for a screen is too big enough, yet if they managed to fit it to a size of the present gnote2 then it would be cool.

Im was very surprised by the SIII. I wanted the Note II, but its too expensive. Ive had it since December, and I can honestly say that I dont miss not having the Note II that much. The S IV and Note III will be 2 phones that everyone would want, but they'll be too high for me.

Lets see how big these phones will be. The only way that Im going to get one of those 2 phones will be if theres something NEW that the S3 isnt able to do

What I assume based on the accessories mentioned above:

2600mah battery - Very thin GS4 ..Could be thinner than ip5
SD card slot, removable battery - Of course

Arm Band - Galaxy Skin with basic function and features(watch, music and radio etc)

Maybe or not

But i guess it will be thinner than GS3 somewhat and GS3 is still quite thin phone.
I dont really mind to have thick(relatively) phone as long as battery has big capacity but the mass love thin phone so GS4 must be the thin kind

I would not care if its thinne than the iPhone. That is an irrelevant requirement. Beyond that, those specs would be appetizing.

all these phones this year will have almost the same hard ware specs , but its what software tricks these phones have up their sleeves will prove the deciding factor ..... hence samsung has already established that lead .....

this is getting interesting... apple is also thinking about smartwatches.
Lets see who wins. My bet is with apple because watches will need to be simplistic in both design and interface. Samsung GS4 is going to be better than iPhone 5s,6,6s and 7 though if apple doesnt change their interface.

i think you mean bendable... and yes, it almost feels obvious that they are going to use those screens.

A bit worried about the battery with that large screen & A15-power, I'd gladly sacrifice a mm to get 3500mAh.

Also, why don't they unify the back plate and battery, one large thin module holding 4000mAh you can detach to get to the SIM & SD slot with space left on top for camera & NFC. There's a lotta plastic around the battery bed plus there's the battery's own cover and the back cover. Lotsa space to be saved if one half of the phone is screen, HW, chops and slots, and the other think half is a battery-backplate.

love my S3 as well. cant wait to dump it for that 1080P screen; wanted droid DNA, almost bought it many occasion but gonna wait for S4 instead.

Told ya the S4 Mini was coming, the screen is being touted as a 720p display, so we could finally see a worthy IP5 rival in the smaller segment. I just hope Samsung treat the S4 Mini like a top tier phone based off it's bigger brother and at least load it with Exynos 5 Dual or 5440 Quad.

Another copycat project from the Typical Korean, SmartWatch which Sony has already has it for some time. Overclock S4 and I can say good luck that it will suffer the same fate as your S3 with power draining issue as your software skills sucks all time. How good your processor can be but when it is dropped into the water, it is a piece of junk.

But Apple are doing an IWatch too are they not, also the Togari itself os a rival to the Note 3 in a segment whilst not made by Samsung, helped popularised by it. You telling me that smart watches aren't allowed by other Japanese manufacturers too or is it just Korean bashing this and other blogs have become very notorious for? It's become all too fashionable to pit blame on Korean companies that are all-too-often accused of copying despite the fact that what they're accused of "copying" are things with hardpoints that reduce the amount of creativity that can be used without lessening functionality (cars, buildings, smartphones). EG: Korean designs are called out for looking like everything else when, in fact, everything looks like everything else.

woooohhh, the trend cant be broken..
whenever Samsung releases a gadget which other manufacturers already has , then Sammy is again a copycat.. duhh? anyway Sony also got that idea from others, before Sony smartwatch, there are plenty of smartwatch out there like the I'm Watch..

..every product out there like appliances, there is someone who invented it, but the market needs choices!
