Whenever, any major technology exhibition starts approaching near, the rumor mills also come in full swing to churn out new stories everyday. The rumor mills are abuzz with news that Samsung will be show-casing its new flagship smartphone Galaxy S IV at CES in Las Vegas in January 2013. Earlier, it was rumored that this new smartphone may debut in MWC in Barcelona in February.
If reports and rumors are to be believed, the Galaxy S IV may be equipped with a 4.99 -inch full HD AMOLED display, with a large 1920 x 1080 resolution, and a pixel density of 441 ppi. However, it is not clear whether the screen will feature flexible display technology. The Galaxy S IV is also speculated to be armed with a quad-core Exynos processor and 4G LTE capabilities. The upcoming smartphone is believed to feature rectangular styling with rounded corners found on the S III, but it is expected to have some external design changes.
It is also being rumored that the new Galaxy S IV may be equipped with 13 MP camera. For Samsung to use this camera on its upcoming smartphone, the handset would require more processing power as well as extra RAM. If Samsung does use this 13 MP camera on its smartphone, then one would be able to capture images at a resolution of 4208 x 3120 pixels.
If Samsung does introduce the Samsung Galaxy S IV at CES, it would come just eight months after the unveiling of the current flagship smartphone, the Galaxy S III. But the moot question is whether Samsung would in future keep the product cycle of its flagship device so short. If that is going to be trend then it is not good news for Samsung’s competitors especially for its arch-rival Apple.
Let us see and watch what Samsung brings out for its stable in CES and MWS. One thing is sure that for these two significant events, Samsung would be giving two big surprises!
