As March 14 nears, anticipation builds about Samsung Galaxy S IV, the latest version of Samsung Galaxy series, the gadget that single handedly thwarted the monopoly of the legendary iPhone. Dr. Gadget wonders about the features of the smartphone!
Samsung Galaxy S IV
- Official announcement on March 14
- Rumored to sport a 5-inch screen with 1920 x 1080 full-HD screen
- Powered by 1.8GHz / 1.9GHz Quad-core processor
- Eye Tracking feature
Its predecessor Samsung Galaxy S III featured a monstrous 4.8-inch screen that put the iPhone and most other smartphones to shame. The Samsung Galaxy S IV is going to make even that screen size a passe with an even bigger, 5.0-inch screen with full-HD display having 1920 x 1080 resolution.
At one point of time, the 5.3-inch screen of the Galaxy Note was laughed at. With trends changing at a breakneck pace, larger screens are in vogue and the Galaxy S IV is expected to continue with the trend.
Another burning question - will the Samsung Galaxy S IV sport a faster processor for a better smartphone experience than earlier? Highly likely, as the race between smartphones gets hotter with each passing day, and making the smartphones faster is the only way of keeping the users in good spirits.
It is rumored that the Samsung Galaxy S IV will be powered by a 1.8GHz Quad-core processor, which will make the highly awaited gadget blazingly fast. This was reported by Sammmobile, a site notorious for Samsung rumors, a number of which have been found to be true.
To quote the site, “We can confirm Samsung will use the Snapdragon 600 and it is clocked at 1.9 Ghz which is 0.2 Ghz higher than the HTC One. The Galaxy S IV will have 2 GB of RAM and will come in three variants 16, 32 or 64 GB.”
This should be interesting. As reported earlier, the Samsung Galaxy S IV is going to sport Eye-Tracking, a ground-breaking technology that could well be a trendsetter. It will help users to do away with scrolling by a finger swipe and the pages could be scrolled with a mere rolling of eyes!
This was revealed by Korean Times, which quoted an unnamed Samsung official (Read: Samsung Rumor scoop). However, it is not known what technology enabled Samsung to work-out this never seen before feature.
That would be known on March 14, when the Korean electronics giant officially unveils the gadget. Till then, keep watching this space for more juicy content!
