Purported specs for the Samsung Galaxy S4 have leaked online, raising the prospect that the handset might not be much of an upgrade from the phone-maker’s current flagship kit.
A leaked PDF, for which we’ve got a South Korean finance company to thank, the next landmark Samsung handset will pack a five-inch, 1920x1080 display. That’s not too much larger than the existing model and runs contrary to some reports that the S4 would further blur the lines between the Galaxy S range and larger Galaxy Note phablets.
According to the document, a quad-core processor will be on board too. Once again, that’s exactly in line with the S3 and jars with long-standing speculation that Samsung will up the ante with an almost absurdly brawny octa-core number this time around.
And rounding things off when it apparently appears in March, we’re being led to believe anyway, is 2GB of RAM and version 4.2 of Android (AKA Jelly Bean), with an update to the next Key Lime Pie iteration surely set in stone later in the year.
Fresh details of Samsung’s next major contender comes after reports emerged that analysts expect the S4 to rack up 100 million sales – making it the best-selling Samsung smartphone by some distance. By way of comparison, the S3’s lifetime sales are estimated to finish up at around 60 million.
