The Samsung Galaxy S IV launch takes place on Thursday, but we’ve still a few days left to squeeze in some eleventh-hour rumours before it all becomes an iPhone 5-crushing reality.
We’re perusing what appears to be a fairly comprehensive Samsung Galaxy S IV spec sheet. Indeed, it’s probably the most in-depth preview to date. Check it out, bro.
Diving straight in, we’re told to expect the Samsung Galaxy S IV to embrace floating touch technology, as found on the Sony Xperia Sola.
That means you’ll be able to perform unique operations by floating (as opposed to touching). For example, hovering above a photo album might give you a preview of its contents, while actually pressing the screen would take you inside.
We’re also told to brace for something called – not AMOLED, but – PHOLED; phosphorus OLED. According to SamMobile’s source, it’s “25% more efficient”, which means better battery life. No arguments here.
Other Samsung Galaxy S IV specs are said to include a 1080p resolution on the 4.99in display, Samsung Orb (Sammo’s Photo Sphere, essentially), and Jelly Bean Android 4.2.1 out of the box - with an upgrade to Android 4.2.2 "in the same month of release".
What’s that? You want more Samsung Galaxy S IV specs? You got ‘em. How about a 13MP rear camera, octo-core Exynos Octa processor and 2GB of RAM.
However, before you go wetting your pants, the source notes that there are various Samsung Galaxy S IV prototypes kicking around, and as such it’s difficult to know which specs will materialise on Thursday. Stay tuned…
