I know, I know. It hasn’t even been a year since the release of the Galaxy S3 and now Samsung is releasing the Galaxy S4, but the only people who will be griping about this are the people who locked up their upgrade by purchasing the S3 a few months back (put me in this category). I understand that technology sometimes seems to rollover onto itself sometimes, but that’s what we (early adopters) get for buying the latest device.
I am guilty of this in all areas of technology. Whether it be the newest laptop to hit the market like theLenovo Twist, or the newest gadget to sync my S3 and my HD TV, I jump in with both feet. I would love to get my hands on this new S4 (only chance of that is to coax the wife into trading me phones and giving me her upgrade = not likely). Now on to some things that are expected from the S4.
First, it’s rumored to have an eight core processor. While we may see that in UK models, I am willing to bet that the US devices get the 1.8GHZ quad-core. But the rumor mill is touting an eight-core, so I guess we will see.
Second, 5.0 1080×1920 resolution display. They are packing this larger display with more pixels which in turns means richer and fuller colors along with performance powered by the quad/eight core processor (depending on who you believe).
Lastly, the camera. The front facing is expected to be a 2.1 megapixel camera which is easily on par with the top devices on the market. But, the main camera will be an 13 megapixel monster that is even rumored to shoot in 3-d. This is probably the most anticipated feature besides an eight-core processor.
These are the main things that interest myself when looking for a new device. All the other amazing things like ‘eye scrolling’ and wireless charging are just a bonus to me.
