Oh yeah great news for 4k recording.
Psst SAMSUNG! Look at storage man. Flimsy SD Slot will not save you this time.
S4 16gb shame is already on BBC news, the world is looking. Better get your acts together and release that 64gb ASAP! Anyway you SHOULD have already be using 128gb. Not that you have no choice, but YOUR THE MAKER of 128gb internal LONG LONG AGO.
It certainly _sounds_ impressive that it will come with a 24-bit 192kHz audio chip, but that doesn't mean it would be any better than a 16-bit 48/44.1 kHz chip. In fact, it could actually be the other way around. It takes a lot more than just increasing the bit rate and resolution to actually increase the quality of sound. It also depends on the circuitry around the chip and how well tuned that circuitry is, and of course the chip itself.
But I agree that they should put more internal storage into the phone, especially since it supports 4K video to encourage people ronuse that feature and share the content online. 128GB + microSD should be minimum, perhaps two sd slots should be out into it...
Come on samsung! show us something new. this type of thing just incremental upgrade:
720P -> FHD -> 4K -> ETC
one core -> 2 -> 4 - >8 ->16 core
4-inch ->.... -> 6-inch screen
These manufacturers are doing well, but should also increase battery energy density at a fast rate. Also I think they should soon start making 4k(3840 x 2160 pixels) on 4.7/5/5.5/6 inched screens.
Anonymous, 27 Aug 2013"plausible"!? gsmarena, i'm dissapointed. i can bet my life that there wont be 4k. S... moreI think it made sense for Sony to release 4K on a smartphone since they also have a TV that supports that resolution. But I don't know where Samsung are up to in that category...
Another waste and gimmick. 4K videos will eat up all the memory. Not even 100GB is sufficient for it. With 64GB (assuming 32 MicroSD + 32 internal) you'll be getting maximum of 56 minutes. Even with 1080p videos 64GB is a joke.
These companies need to innovate and stop wasting money/resources bumping and increasing specs anyhow. In addition samsung in particular needs to start making phones that are of premium quality and feel.
Samsung is inspired by sony's 4k video recording smartphone ha ha ha!!!! Shamesung!
"plausible"!? gsmarena, i'm dissapointed. i can bet my life that there wont be 4k. Samsung will never give more than it has to, and you can't even play 4k anywhere!
Samsung should make it 128GB with MSD card I'd definitely be impressed
this company who inovates the most it's just lame going after and after all others do, sony is waterproof samsung going waterproof, sony has 20mp samsung going 16mp very fast, sony got 4k what the hell let samsung go 4k, they are scared and i hope they slowly go down
LG G2( 24-bit/192KHz sound and OIS in camera) and Sony Honami(4 k video) pushed the limits . Now samsung dont have another choice . Without thses , marketing team cant convince fans easily :) .
More competition means better phones Samsung/Sony/LG :)
Compete more and give more features and performance.
i dont need this, all i want is bigger n removeable battery within extra battery kit thats all...or else i ll stay with my note2
