shnider, 24 Nov 2012if those specs still confirmed, then i will be disappointed.. I mean what does it differs from... moreIt is obvious that it doesn't work they way you are actually thinking.That specific chipset's lithography is 28 nm.That basically means that the power consumption is much lower,the performance is higher and the heat emitions are less than the current's quad core exynos.Moreover,eventhough they will probably add 2GB of RAM,which is something that we have seen already in the smartphone world,these would be different as they would be LPDDR3 and not LPDDR2.That basically means again higher performance compared to the current ones LPDDR2,less heat emitions,and of course these chips consume less energy.Of course all these are still rumoured,so everything is just a wild guess and spare news from various sites which tech journalists did as a news research,like the preliminary specifications that GSMarena provides above.Finally,it is also rumoured that they will make NAND chips which will reach 128 GB of storage,which for many people will be very useful as they will stop using the slower microsd slot and they will use only the intergrated storage in the PCB of the phone which is a lot faster.My only concern is that if they add 2GB or more how well the chipset is going to handle all this memory,especially in situations when most of the RAM will be occupied by applications,processes and tasks.
Really looking forward to it... damn... this would be next gen processor... and 1080 HD screen... this surely would be my next Samsung phone after note 2...Way to go Samsung..!!
Note: Apple is not a bad brand... its just that they carry the worst attitude and Ego... Apple needs to grow up... and stop behaving like a kid...!!
LosHo, 23 Nov 2012probably I will upgrade my two years old galaxy s2 with this one. But... do I really need to d... moreMe too. I hope samsung will focus also on battery life that lasts up to 5 days for the galaxy s5.
HEY.. i dont really agree with the specs and also the "5.0 inch screen"
samsung wont really make the screen big as then it would be pretty much the same thing as the galaxy note.
SIII is already big itself.
but i am looking forward to the official specs of the S IV. p.s. the name S IV founds too good!!
Anonymous, 24 Nov 2012ok it may be wright, but two cored apple is more faster than 4 cored Samsung . . .I just can'... moreI think it's about the system, Apple using their own system and OS while Samsung using their own system too but share Android OS to another device, maybe that's why iPhone more faster than Samsung that's only using dual core processor...and that's why i can't play asphalt 7 causea little lag!
if those specs still confirmed, then i will be disappointed.. I mean what does it differs from The S III ?? Nothing new, 2gb ram is usual and practically not noticable Comparing with Apple devices, 13mp cam isnt that big deal, even the OS !!

@ ranjith Samsung is just a "foundry" for apple chips.apple designed the a6 chip not samsung.it only "outsources" the manufacturing to samsung n others.
TSMC manufactures krait chips for qualcomm but kraits r still qualcom's chips since it designs them.
Pls do ur homework first before posting anything and telling others to shut up.

ung have good specs but have no performance
alot of people say no innovation! but has much innovation been done by anyone? Apple has stuck to the same receipe aswell. They havnt really done much new since the iphone4S, ok better screen, better camera and faster processor but isnt that just the same as this? btw i own a S3 and a Ipad, i dont really have an allegiance to either brand.

I hope samsung makes the galaxy s4 as exotic as this !! I just hope they tweak the touchwiz !
