As you might already guessted, another rumor on the Galaxy S4. This time is by Enuri, a popular korean site.
According to the rumor, the Samsung Galaxy S 4 might be the first handset in the series to launch with an S Pen and the accompanying functionality as Samsung is allegedly looking to unite its Note series with the flagship Galaxy S4. This would be a big change for Samsung and is allegedly confirmed by a quote from a Samsung official.
PhoneArena is hearing more confirmations that the Galaxy S4 will indeed come with a 5-inch 1080p AMOLED display, something that almost seems like a fact judging by what the competition is bringing. Moreover, new Samsung Android flagship will run on Jelly Bean and be powered by a quad-core Exynos 5440 chip manufactured using 28nm high-K metal gate technology, with an energy-efficient A7 processor for basic tasks paired with A15 for more intense loads.
Other details about the upcoming Galaxy S IV are a 13-megapixel rear auto-focus camera and slightly thicker, 9.2mm body, a development that would make it very Note-like. What do you guys think? Is S Pen-equipped S IV is a good idea?
Samsung Galaxy S IV will launch in April according to the rumor.
