Samsung’s Galaxy S IV will replace the incredibly successful Galaxy S III and offer a whole bunch of hardware upgrades to make the user experience even better. The main attraction of the upgrade will be the 5 inch 1080p display offered compared to the 4.8 inch 720p display on its predecessor. The processor will be an upgraded ARMv7 quad core although it remains uncertain whether it could also be the hotly anticipated Exynos 5 eight core processor. The GPU is expected to be the PowerVR SGX 544MP by Imagination Technologies and Other hardware rumours suggest that the new smartphone from Samsung could also possess “eye-tracking” technology that would enable the device to automatically detect user’s eye movement and therefore assist the device in responding to the needs of the user in applications.
Public availability of this device is from mid to late April for Asia and Europe while North America gets it later between May and June – probably due to the fact Samsung has a lot of legal business to attend to with other smartphone manufacturers and network carriers. Other sources have suggested that the North America version might feature a Qualcomm quad-core instead of a Samsung quad-core, although it is not clear which would be the “better” solution.
