The "substantial" Galaxy S IV rumors

The "substantial" Galaxy S IV rumors
It seems it was just yesterday when Samsung introduced the Galaxy S III - a slim device with cutting-edge capabilities that instantly became the number 1 wish of every geek. It became one of our favorite Android smartphones as well - giving it a rating of 9.3 out of 10, we unequivocally showed that Samsung had created one of the best smartphones money can buy. But the technological progress never stops, especially if we're dealing with mobile technology these days (which we do). In just half a year, we've seen significant improvement in various areas like screen resolutions, chipset performance, power management techniques and so on and so forth.

With that in mind, we can't overlook the fact that we're starting to hear more and more rumors about the expected fourth generation of the Galaxy S series and the lovely goodies it'll reportedly sport. In fact, we've been getting Galaxy S IV-related info for quite a while now, but it wasn't until October that the rumors that reached us started to gain some substance. Of course, it'd still be an overstatement to say that we now know quite a bit about what is already one of the most-anticipated smartphones of 2013, but we can't deny it - some of the gossip sure does make some sense.

What you'll find below are the more "substantial" rumors about the Galaxy S IV that have surfaced until now, hand-picked by yours truly. Once you've read them all, you'll be as knowledgeable as one can be about the S IV this early, and you'll be able to prove it to your buddies that despite what they've seen in that perfectly authentic YouTube video, the Galaxy S IV will not have a hologram projector.

(Newest ones are on top.)

PC mode to use it as a regular computer with keyboard mouse 7. some kind of dock to use it in pc mode

The phone in my opinion to watch for is the Motorola X. With moto and google teaming up my money will be on them. Samsung uses some nice hardware but what good is a phone with a cheap radio.

I had the s3 right when it came out. Then bought a galaxy tab 7.7. Never used the s3 again other than call and text. I think I'll just wait for a galaxy tab 7.7 2nd gen. This is the right device for me. And I must admit that although I look like an idiot moron, I stick it up to my ear when making calls. Lol.

The S III barely fits in a pocket and the S IV will be bigger? How about a phone with the hardware features (processor, RAM, ROM, resolution) put a pocket size screen? I would think 4-4.5 inches would be about right. If the S IV is 5 inches, that makes it have 12% more screen area than the Note.

No, not really, the note (first edition) is 5.3" and the Note 2 is 5.5" and I do totally agree with you, my SR LTE is 4.5" and I'd rather around 4" like my mom's old captivate,...

In November I thought that I was going to buy the Nexus 4, but after thinking it I'll wait to Samsung Galaxy S4. The price of the Nexus was great but in my opinion after seeing a 1080p resolution display a 720p screen doesn't look so amazing. The Droid DNA processor and display are awesome but it has only 16GB and not expandable storage. I hope that the S4 will carry a BIG.little processor with incredible power and efficiency, also a Super Amoled 1080p screen, with improvements on the calibration, a 13MPX camera with the new features of Android 4.2, an expandable storage, a removable battery with at least 2500mah. It also will include a slim design, not much bigger than the S3, in fact, Samsung will reduce the bezel. The used material will be plastic, it can be a bad or good factor, good because it will bring flexibility and resistance to the phone and bad because the most purist people will feel the phone cheap and with low quality. I hope that the price won't exceed 650$... Samsung pleaaase, become true our dreaams!! XD

Can I borrow that to buy a Red 808 Pureview right now? I can pay you back in installments so you'll be back to $600 by the time the S4 is available! ;)
