More Samsung Galaxy S IV rumours hit the web

The forthcoming Samsung Galaxy S IV is finally beginning to take shape. At least, it is in rumour form.

A couple of days ago, we heard that the company will be showing off a 4.99-inch Full HD Super AMOLED display at the upcoming CES event in Las Vegas. That's a big selling point, but with Samsung still working on mass production methods for a screen of that quality, we think January might be a little soon for a launch.

However, with more details now sneaking out, we do wonder if the finished phone could yet be ready to go in a couple of months?

Those new reports out of Korea now point to the Exynos 5450 chipset with quad-core Cortex-A15 CPU, along with a 13-megapixel camera. With regard to the latter, that was the camera originally planned for the Samsung Galaxy Note II, but die to production restrictions, that smartphone (or phablet) launched with an 8-megapixel snapper instead.

As for the processor, there are doubts, primarily because such a powerful processor would really hammer the battery in the phone. Unless Samsung has a workaround for that. Time will tell. We expect the screen to be showcased in January, but the finished phone is likely to appear a little later in 2013. Be nice to be proved wrong though. Be nice to see a leaked image too. The S III is pictured here, which is likely to be the template for the S IV. Why mess with a winning formula?
