[deleted post]Fancy name? Since when was Polycarbonate a fancy name? It's the same material the HTC One X uses and actually is the best material for a phone because it's light, flexible and shock resistant, and it'd probably be impossible to make from aluminium and make it possible to have a replaceable battery.
Will there be any big surprise for Samsung Galaxy Note2 users also???
I am looking forward to this. I recall Wave(Bada) series with metallic body. I believe metallic body and a shape like SII would give Samsung an edge, of course with the hope that other specs are at par or above the competition,. Think of LG, HTC, Sony, Oppo....
it seems the soc will be exynos5410(dual a15 + dual a7 & SGX544MP(?))..
mawuli one, 10 Mar 2013Where can I get one in Ghana... dont worry it will be released soon then it will be distributed to respective authorised resellers in different countries
PowerVR SGX 544MP3 just 51Gflops
Adreno320(S4 pro) also same=51Gflops
PowerVR SGX554 MP4(ipad4)=76-78Gflops
Some people here give "stupid" imformation to the forumer said GS4 gpu is the strongest.
HTC oNE and GS IV ...gpu spec is on par
please refer : http://kyokojap.sg1006.myweb.hinet.net/gpu_gflops/
I just realised Qualcomm who make the Snapdragon processors that is rumoured to power the US S4 is based on the US so it seems obvious why the US S4 will get the worse Snapdragon instead of the Exynos 5, Because US firms always have deals going where they can say made in America even if customers have to suffer with worse components, So I'd bet anything the US phone networks came to some kind of agreement like this.
Anonymous, 11 Mar 2013Plastic, it's fantastic.Nah its unibody or better like HTC...samy not stupid to give expensive device in fragile way.
some Koreans said it will be released in their country this April... can't wait...
If it's true the US version gets a quad core Snapdragon then exactly why would they do that?
I mean it made sense on S3 because Exynos 4 couldn't handle LTE but Exynos 5 can and would mean the US S4 would be getting a worse processor for no reason, and the only reason I can think is if it's some business decision that they agree to use the Snapdragon for a certain amount of handsets.
oxo, 11 Mar 2013Does the 8 processor running at the same time? Or alternate 4 cortex a15/ 4 cortex a7? Rumor s... moreits a quad core processor, not octa core but has 8 cores where 4 cores works at a time n other 4 relaxes n vice versa... has 4 1.8 ghz cortex A15 cores for heavy operations n 4 1.2 ghz cortex A7 cores for minor operations... only US version has snapdragon 600 chip where as international version has exynos 5 octa chip... both have more or less same performance but exynos is battery efficient so u should be happy coz in phillipines u will get exynos version...
Does the 8 processor running at the same time? Or alternate 4 cortex a15/ 4 cortex a7? Rumor say that the sgs4 will realease a quadcore snapdragon 600 in us. Dont know what is better snapdragon or exynos any idea? Wish sgs4 realease early in phil, sorry for my bad english
