Galaxy S4 allegedly leaks: No AMOLED, Exynos?
Truth needs consistency and coherence, and that is what we have here with the Samsung Galaxy S IV specs that was leaked once more. It has been going on from a number of reports, all pointing to it being powered by a Snapdragon 600 processor instead of Exynos. Recent news further suggests that there won’t be any AMOLED as well.
According to SamMobile, the 4th Galaxy S won’t feature their Exynos CPU all because of overheating issues. This wasn’t the first time these rumors hit the web. Apparently, way back it was suggested that the Galaxy S4 will run on a Snapdragon processor. Of course, it will be fast. The HTC One goes around the 12,000 mark on Quadrant benchmarks, while the S4 benchmarks that also leaked led us to around 24,000 on Antutu. We have no idea where that equates to however.
On the other side of the report, there won’t be any AMOLED show for the S4. Instead, it will be using a SoLux display of unknown origin. It will be 4.99-inches in size and 1080p in resolution. Judging by the leaked image above, the boot screen shows a dark shade of gray instead of a deep black – which could mean this is of the LCD kind.
A lot of details on the design leaked as well, including it having a plastic back with aluminum sides, the signature home button, squared off edges and dimensions of 140.1 x 71.8 x 7.7mm (that is very close to the Xperia Z’s dimensions). For you to visualize it and for the other specs that leaked, we have prepared it for you down below. Nothing new to visualize really, especially in design.
Samsung Galaxy S IV specs (so far):
4.99-inch Full-HD SoLux LCD Display, 1080 x 1920
1.9GHz Snapdragon 600 CPU
16, 32, 64 GB internal storage
13 megapixel camera
140.1 x 71.8 x 7.7mm
Android 4.2 Jellybean
It’s quite difficult to analyze something like this. Does this mean the Galaxy Note 3 will be the one packing the Exynos 5 Octa? Or the 1080p Super AMOLED? Weirdly, the report also states that it will go for black & white color schemes instead of the recent blue & white one. Until the Galaxy S4’s release, take everything as a grain of salt. At least we have an idea of what the competition will be up against.
