Samsung Galaxy S IV spec rumours begin: ‘Adonis’ 28nm A15 quad-core CPU

Samsung Galaxy S IV spec rumours begin: ‘Adonis’ 28nm A15 quad-core CPUWell, now that the iPhone 5, iPad mini and Nexus 4 (among countless others) are finally here, the rumour mill needs something else to focus on – something new and exciting.

Enter: the Samsung Galaxy S IV, the inevitable and possibly-but-probably-not-imminent successor to the massively popular Samsung Galaxy S III.

To be fair, this isn’t actually the first time we’ve written about the Artist Presumed to Be Called the Samsung Galaxy S IV.

Back in mid-September, the Samsung Galaxy S IV was tipped to launch at Mobile World Congress 2013. An unnamed official reportedly yelled: “Samsung is ready to unveil the next Galaxy smartphone, the Galaxy S4, at early next year’s mobile world congress (MWC) in the Spanish city of Barcelona.”

However, Samsung quickly moved to dispel the rumours, saying (loosely translated from Korean): “Please note that the speculation reported by some media regarding the Galaxy S III's successor is purely rumour, and simply not true. We have not announced anything, so why spread these rumours?”

Now Korea’s DDaily reports that Samsung is testing something called “Adonis”, a quad-core ARM 15 CPU based on 28nm manufacturing tech. It makes sense to assume it’ll debut in a suitably meaty flagship device, so why not the Samsung Galaxy S IV?

Doesn’t seem too far-fetched, though we don’t expect the Samsung Galaxy S IV to become a reality till April or May 2013 – six or more months from now. As such, holding of breath is not recommended.

That mean you don't want to see about the 64bit processors due 2014?

Ok. Everyone stop. I followed Pondlifes link, then clicked on other links down the side, and found how Mobot should be. http://www.youtube.com/ninjaunboxing3

Well all the Arm cores are still based on 32 bit risc processors I think.

Yeah until those ones in link in 2014.
Won't that need a big change in os as with windows 64 though well to use them as 64bit at least. They will still run 32.
Power requirement drop looks huge.

Its crazy, today's latest phone is found to be old and dusty tomorrow. How do you keep up? And the question that drives everyone is, "What is next?"

Well this is an enthusiasts site, expect most aren't all that bothered. But its similar if a little slower in other tech too, lcd tvs replaced by led, 720p by 1080p, with 4k on the horizon, DVD to bluray to whatever 4k will need. New Nintendo handhelds seemingly every time you look at them...

I agree. Obviously, Mobot needs to compete with the news-hungry masses.
But consider this: Lewis used, until recently, his HTC Desire HD. I use a Nokia N9, and Matt is still using an SGS2. Martin James doesn't even own a phone (I made this up....)

I still got a working Nokia 5310. X)

I have an E75... and an E61 in need of a battery

SpeedyG  Nov. 5, 2012 at 13:53

Have a Samsung G600 lying around I don't use now which is ok after a charge. Any takers? X)

You can get so much use from the older phones than newer smartphones these days.

JanSt / MOD  Nov. 5, 2012 at 14:00

Agree... if the E75 I have had a better screen, I'd happilly use it. Dedicated audio chip, excellent qwerty, 3 days + battery (which was 'shockingly poor' when it launched LOL)
