London: There are a lot of things coming for smarphone enthusiasts from the arrival of the world’s first 8-core handset – the ZTE Apache, apparently – to the fate of perpetually beleaguered Canadian manufacturer RIM and its forthcoming BlackBerry 10 platform in 2013 but the most awaiting thing is Samsung Galaxy S4, the successor of the South Korean firm’s Galaxy S3.
The Galaxy S3, first released in May 2012, is well into its life-cycle, so it’s only natural that S4 rumours are becoming more and more substantive by the day.
The Samsung Galaxy S4 and Galaxy Note 3 would have a flexible OLED 1080p HD displays, rumour says.
“Foldable, rollable, wearable and more, [and] will allow for a high degree of durability through their use of a plastic substrate that is thinner, lighter and more flexible than… conventional LCD technology,” a preventative of the South Korean firm explained to PC Advisor.
Several release date rumuors for the S4 have been published, but the representatives of the South Korean firm have denied the veracity of all rumuors.
However, sparking speculation, Samsung has revealed the dates for its annual Forum and promised “major announcements”.
Specification (rumours) :
The Korea TImes claims to have been made privy to a substantial Galaxy S4 specification leak, which say a 5 inch device sporting an impressive 1,920 x 1,080 pixel ‘Super LCD 3′ display at a mind-boggling 445 ppi, coated with Corning Gorilla Glass 2.
Further speculations about the Galaxy S4 are the smartphone will use the 13MP sensor, 2GB RAM and a quad-core processor Cortex-A15 processor clocked at 2GHz.
Hint from Samsung:
An official has told Korea Times reported on condition of anonymity, “Samsung is ready to unveil the next Galaxy smartphone, the Galaxy S4, at early next year’s mobile world congress (MWC) in the Spanish city of Barcelona.”

In either case, the new build of Android will almost certainly debut with a new Nexus Smartphone before being made available for use with other devices, which could see the wait for the Galaxy S4 launch stretch even further.
Another rumor claimed that Samsung Galaxy S4 will sport a flexible OLED 1080p HD displays. This technology will likely also be featured with the Samsung Galaxy Note 3. This contradicts the previous report that the device will be equipped with an indestructible screen display.
It was previously reported that the Samsung Galaxy S4 will sport a 5-inch full HD display with full 1080p and a whopping 440 pixels per inch. The device will be powered by two quad core chips.
The Galaxy S4 might also sport a 13-megapixel rear-facing camera, which will intimate other smartphones with 8MP back shooters.
The handset should come with a minimum of 2GB RAM, although there are reports that Samsung is testing an unidentified smartphone with 3GB RAM.
Samsung also began mass producing 128GB memory chips for smartphones and tablets earlier this year, and we could see storage capacities that high as early as next year. With this, the Samsung will continue its reign in producing devices with large storage capacity.
Samsung kept mum on the rumors surrounding the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S4. There is no official comment from the South Korea’s tech giant.

Don’t hold your breath for Samsung to unveil the Galaxy S4 any time soon.
The successor to Samsung’s blockbuster Galaxy S3 smartphone won’t be showing up at the Consumer Electronics Show next month, CNET has learned.
At the tech confab, Samsung is planning to introduce a number of electronic products, heavily focused on televisions, according to people familiar with the company’s plans. Those announcements, however, do not include any major mobile news, and Samsung plans to showcase its mobile products at a separate media event after
Speculation about the Galaxy S4′s arrival surfaced yesterday after Samsung released a teaser video for CES. The video revealed little, but it was enough to kick off speculation and anticipation for a smartphone announcement. Samsung actually downplayed the rumor a while back, but that was largely ignored.
It wouldn’t make sense for Samsung to unveil the new version so soon, given that the Galaxy S3 continues to sell well, and the company has put its resources behind promoting the newly released
Galaxy Note 2.
Many companies are holding off until Mobile World Congress in February to make their announcements, with a number, including Samsung, opting to follow the Apple model and holding their own events.
The Galaxy S3 has proven to be a hit nearly on par with Apple’s iPhone franchise. While it doesn’t draw the crazy lines and crowds, Samsung’s products have consistently ranked among the top-selling wares at each of the carriers. Part of Samsung’s success has been its ability to get a consistent version of its Galaxy S3 phone at every carrier, allowing it to tap into the largest base of customers possible.
It’s a far cry from the first Galaxy S phone, which was heavily altered and renamed by the U.S. carriers, and looked more like generic smartphones. But persistent marketing and carrier support has helped Samsung establish a reputation for quality mobile products.
