Samsung Galaxy S4 Rumor Roundup: 7 Things You Need to Know
The Galaxy S4 is coming, the follow-up to one of the best-selling smartphones of all time. Last time around, Samsung shook things up with a bevy of innovative sharing features (and a marketing campaign that tore down iPhone lovers). On March 14th, the world will meet the S III’s successor. But what kind of specs will it have? What will be the new breakthrough features? Will the screen be much bigger? The rumor mill has been churning over time and we’ve gathered all the most credible speculation in one place.
Dual-core processors are so yesterday and quad-cores are starting to look a little long in the tooth. So how will the Galaxy S4 stay ahead of the mobile processor arms race? By sticking an octa-core processor in it, that's how. According to an AnTuTu benchmark posted on Twitter by Android ROM developer Faryaab Sheikh and GSMArena, the S4 will come sporting Samsung's 1.5-GHz Exynos 5410 processor. That's way more firepower than the quad-core Exynos the S IV was previously expected to come with. With that kind of power, the S4 will easily be able to tackle your most demanding processes.
