Samsung Galaxy S IV

So apparently a Samsung insider tells Sammobile that Samsung wont be running with either of the EXYNOS processors for the flagship device of 2013, the Galaxy S IV. Neither will the trademark AMOLED displays be used. According to the insider, Samsung will be bundling Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 600 processor at 1.9 GHz quad-core with roughly the same specs as we had discussed earlier. These being 2 GB RAM, 4.99″ display which will be Full HD SoLux LCD and storage options of 16,32 and 64 GB of mass storage.

Sammobile says that the AMOLED factory could be having issues producing HD AMOLED displays and that the EXYNOS processor is rumoured to have heating issues. Other features expected on Samsung flagship phone of 2013 is a 13 MP camera, aluminium sides with plastic removable back, black or white colour options and the home button remains. Samsung is expected to announce the device in March 14th which if it happens to do in New York, will mean the night of the 14th or 15th for us in the East of Greenwich.

    1.9GHz quad is still good, now does that mean LCD technology is winning over Led?
