|Samsung Galaxy S IV|
According to a fresh report, Samsung's upcoming Galaxy S IV flagship is about to do away with two of the previous generation's staples - the AMOLED display and the Exynos CPU. The upcoming Korean flagship will reportedly feature a 4.99" 1080p SoLux display and a Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 chipset whose CPU cores tick at 1.9GHz.
While the technology behind the SoLux display is yet to be revealed, the leaked boot screen of the Samsung Galaxy S IV points at an LCD-looking unit. As for the Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 chipset - it has already proven to be the leggiest around in the HTC One. We do however, wonder where will the Exynos 5 Octa silicon end up going.
Further leaked specs include 2GB of RAM, 16, 32, and 64GB options for built-in memory, as well as a 13MP camera. The Samsung Galaxy S IV will reportedly sport measures of 140.1 x 71.8 x 7.7mm, and a weight of 138 grams. The battery will be user-replaceable.
The configuration with a centrally located home button and touch buttons on its sides is said to be present in the upcoming Galaxy S IV. The device will reportedly have a plastic back with aluminum sides. A black and white color options will be available at launch.
The Samsung Galaxy S IV is rumored for an announcement on March 14. Until then, use the mandatory pinch of salt when threading through the leaked specs.
