Everything You Need To Know About The Samsung Galaxy S4

11 March, 2013 Samsung


Samsung is going to announce its next flagship smartphone, the Galaxy S IV, this week.


This is a really big moment for Samsung. It has successfully transitioned from being some boring phone maker to one of the premier brands in the world.


The S IV could be its peak, or it could be the next step on the path to world domination. It all depends on how good the phone is.


Since you're probably curious about what Samsung has in store, we've summed up just about everything you need to know about the phone in this post. And watch the accompany video for more analysis.


The screen is going to be really big


We can't answer this right now, but a 5-inch screen is really big. It's almost comical to make phone calls with a giant phone. But, Samsung sold a fair amount of the 5-inch Galaxy Note, so it thinks people want the bigger screen. Plus, we're mostly using our smartphones as computers so, bigger can be better.



A lot of people were hoping Samsung would splurge and use better materials for its new phone. According to various reports, the case will be plastic, which feels cheap compared to the iPhone or HTC's latest phone. Samsung is doing it because it's lighter, easier to make, and costs less.

Will it have a home button?



A leaked image of what the S IV is supposed to look like shows no home button for the phone. It's possible Samsung ditches the home button and makes the bottom part of the phone touch sensitive.


The screen is going to be LCD, not AMOLED, maybe ...



Samsung is the leading OLED display maker, but Samsung-focused blog Sam Mobile says its going with a LCD display for the S IV. Sam Mobile says it was struggling to make full HD AMOLED displays. However, Pocket Lint reported that it will have an AMOLED display. What's the difference? Samsung's AMOLED screen looks great, we're not sure what would happen with an LCD screen, but we assume it won't be bad.


It will probably be on all carriers



One the things that makes Samsung unique from other Android phone sellers is that it starts selling its phones on all carriers all at once in the U.S. We expect the same will happen with the S4.


The U.S. version is getting a quad-core processor, international is getting eight-cores.


A screen shot leak shows the U.S. version of the S IV getting a quad-core processor. The international version of the phone is said to have an eight-core processor. Don't get too worked up over cores. It's how you use the cores, and reports say Samsung is using its processor to be ridiculously fast.


Some sort of eye-tracking, or head tracking software
