Samsung Galaxy S4 Features and Specs Speculation

The first time a ‘leak’ about Samsung Galaxy S4 popped up with picture renders on the internet, it seemed too good to be true and Samsung was quick to deny that the company was alreadydeveloping the next high end device.  This made sense because the S3 was still soaring in sells and it was doing so well that any thought of developing any phone better than that could have most likely harmed its performance because enthusiasts would have probably held back to wait for the new phone.  Since then, we have heard rumors about the S4 but nothing so credible yet.  Today though, thanks to the folks at Android Authority, we can speculate on the specs and features of Samsung’s next flagship device which is almost certain to be the S4.

The new Galaxy S4 expected to launch sometime in 2013 will most definitely sport a new processor.  DDaily says that the phone will come with the new smaller 28nm ARM Cortex-A15 processor dubbed Adonis whose mass production has been rumored to begin sometime in the last quarter of 2012.  A couple of weeks ago, there were reports of Cortex-A15 processor tests which are presumed to have for the Galaxy S4 phone.

This new Adonis processor is said to be much better than the current Exynos as it offers better performance but with low power consumption and is more compact in size.  If it has a high GPU performance, then this is the real futuristic processor that should make the Galaxy S4 a smartphone in its own league.  Somewhere though, there are some enthusiasts that say that the S4 may come sporting a quad-core Exynos 5450 processor with a clockspeed of 2 GHz.  We haven’t seen this processor in any device and I would suppose that it will be easier for Samsung to improve the current Exynos processor for the S4 than fit it with a completely new processor.  After all, Samsung just recently launched an Exynos 5-based Arndale developer board (read the story here) – a further proof that it may have intentions to keep this processor line alive for longer.

When it comes to other features, we expect better screen (yeah, it can get better than Super AMOLED, we just don’t know how yet) – maybe a 5 inch screen with a much better build quality.  The big question is, what else will Samsung offer that will make the S4 undeniably better than the S3, currently still the best smartphone in the market?  Let is wait and see, but I have faith Samsun will not disappoint during the 2013 MWC when it may launch the Galaxy S4.

  1. By then, in 2013 Key Lime 5.0 will have so many added features that many iSheep will wonder why they ever bought all the over priced iCrap products.

    But , the again iSheep have drank so much KOOL Aid that iSheep have had a chemical KOOL Aid brain alteration, no hope for these iSheep.

  2. Just look at the Nexus 10 videos, that thing is really fast and smooth.. 5250, imagine how fast 5450 is…

  3. It is very unlikely that Samsung will make a 5 incher S4 because that automatically makes it a phablet. Thewe wouldnt be any room for a note 3 then. I believe they’ll keep it below 4.6″

  4. I agree with you. I recently used the much hyped Xiaomi M2 phone with mindblowing hardware specs but the software is crappy and I was very disappointed. It is almost like running windows 98 on an i7 computer

  5. Some people will never understand that the hardware is nothing without proper software! I don’t care if the processor is Cortex-A15 or A6 chip, but I do care how the OS looks like and acts like. So don’t tell me about that meanless numbers sonny…

  6. Samsung announced they will start producing 1080p smartphones in 2013 which people speculated will start with the Galaxy line. The Galaxy S4 and the Galaxy Note 3.

    Also, if I was a gambling man, I would bet if the S4 was coming out in Q2 of 2013, then they will stick the with Exynos 5450. The new Exynos 5250 launching in the Nexus 10 is a BEAST and it’s a dual-core. Quad-core Exynos 5450 clocked at 2ghz would tear anything and everything to pieces.

  7. If it runs as hot as the S3 I dont want it even if it were as powerful as an intel i7 with 20 gigs of ram.

  8. If it runs as hot as the S3 I dont want it even if it were as powerful as an intel i7 with 20 gigs of ram.

  9. Oh and I forget to mention that Samsung has already indirectly said what the better screen would be. True HD. 1080p and everything.
