Rumors: Galaxy S IV to have 13MP camera, quad-core A15 CPU - read the full textThe Samsung Galaxy S IV rumors are heating up - the 4.99" 1080p Super AMOLED screen was brought up again as was the Exynos 5450 chipset rumors (with quad-core Cortex-A15 CPU). The camera has also caught the attention of the rumor mill and apparently it will be a 13MP shooter. That sounds...

@GSMA, I think your website has helped popularized Samsung devices. Please brought up this issue about hardware to SGS4.

Samsung needs to improve hardware category:
> ALUMINIUM case instead of polycarbonate
> Battery must be 3500 to 4500mAh level
> Exynos 5240 processor
> 2GB ram

SAMSUNG please have ALUMINIUM CASE for SGS4 for it feels to be premium device.

I know Samsung would bring "awe" and "wow" effect in features.

Improve quality design and material on the casing is my greatest anticipation to Samsung devices.

Couple the ALUMINIUM CASE with:
> 3500 to 4500mAh battery
> 2 GB ram
> 1080p 441+ Super AMOLED PLUS display
> SD card slot
> 16/32/64 Internal memory
> Loaded with top guns from SGS3

Nokia might not be the top everything and their phones might be a little thicker but they way still among the best. You have Nokia to thank for many things. Nokia still makes beautiful high quality devices with usually the best camera usually only rivaled by Samsung there. The 920 has some amazing technology in it for sure. It does a have a ccouple draw backs yes but many advantages. One said thing is Nokia should make a Droid.

In my opinion 13MP camera is too much. Thiswill just eat up the memory. 8MP is perfect for a phone.

Why don't you learn to read and comprehend before you give someone a lecture on learning you baffoon. I said up there save for the pureviw. Do you not what tthat means? Obviously not or you wouldn't have made such a ridiculous fanboy flame. It means except for the pure view. And yes if you check the quality of the pixon12 in the compare tool it still holds up to others extremely well.

hi. i have an ios, android, and wp8 devices. i will not mention brands (well, obviously ios is apple) and models of those i use currently. android is so far the only opensource mobile os, and these hardware innovations that android oems are pushing for are meant to be for exploit of developers primarily, while end-users comes last. just look at it that way instead of bashing each other for your os preferences.

I hope Samsung uses better sensor than those current 13MP that we can find in LG Optimus G or Xperia T: they're just crap. Note 2 users should be happy Samsung decided to go with 8MP because they have better performing, less noisy device.

I'd really much like Samsung coming with 8MP sensor in the SGS4 if only it was some next-gen tech, especially regarding low-light capability. We don't really need anything more than 8MP in a phone.

> In reply to JackTheRipper @ 2012-11-20 21:49 from fsg7 - click to readAre you living under a rock? Those links you give me are the ones outdated. The Lumia 920 is out for sometime now and a lot of reviews have already been made and the general concensus is that it has one of the best camera on a phone. In fact, only another Nokia beats it, the 808 PV. Go ahead, check engadget, the verge, mobiletechcrunch, technobuffalo. NFC has long been on Nokia since 2007 on Nokia 6131. And unlike Samsung, Nokia actually have use for NFC. They use to pair their phones with wireless headsets and speakers. The wireless charging comes in different forms, a plate, a pad, a pillow, a stand and you can even charge the phone wirelessly just by placing it ovr the JBL speaker of which are all provided by Nokia. The screen is not just HD. It's supersensitive. It can be used with gloves, fingernails, keys, fork or just virtually anything and has a fast 60Hz refresh rate similar to those HDTV monitors. And as I've said the polycarbonate on Lumia 920 is a different one. It's scratch-resistant. The Lumia 920 is the only truly innovative phone released this year.

> In reply to JackTheRipper @ 2012-11-20 21:49 from fsg7 - click to readYou truly are ignorant TROLL of all times. in 1983 was the first patent for nfc. In 2004 nokia made a Near Field Communication forum. Nfc was used for paying parking paying and many others. In 2006 Nokia 6131 was the first NFC phone ever made. 920 has a PureMotion HD+ display. Way better then galaxy s*it3. You ain't gonna see everything in slow motion as you see on s3 specially on white screen. Nokia maps is freee eee eee for life time. Thickness counts, and what that s*hit3 has, it is just to damn thin to call it polycarbonate. Do some learning before you come here and make a total full out of your self.

Samsung will now be showing to Apple that you used to be Popular but now they have got to change the Stratedgy.O.k Nokia think that there phones have the Best Cameras to Date an now are going to face some competition from Samsung an also Sony,Samsung will be more willing to now produce the Screens for Smartphones an TVs in 2013,we might even get a Flexible Screen mobile from Samsung,One thing Samsung have got to do now is also put more power batteries in the Smartphones to make sure there New Screens do not drain the smartphones more faster the S2 drained alot faster than the S3,so we want to S4 to more Lasting

-S3 has wireless charger but doesn't come free and before 920 released... BTW 920 wireless charging is a joke the adapter is like a microwave i don't know who wants to carry this huge device just to charge a phone.
-HD resolution is so old, now 1080P, Samsung introduced HD since 2011 in Galaxy Note & LG Nitro HD.
-You mean fake camera? still no news about the real camera... check those sources from GSMarena.
-Samsung introduced NFC since SII 2011.
-Android provide voice command since ages! Man you Nokia fans think Nokia is the only one came with anything! Grow up man!
-Android has free navigation with limited offline service.
-Polycarbonate? Don't you know SIII is made of polycarbonate too?

I so much do not like SAMOLED after my terrible Galaxy Note screen. It is so ugly no words can describe. I will try to avoid AMOLED at all costs. Previous rumors suggested that S4 will have LCD and I was happy but now I am not. :-(
