The Samsung Galaxy S4 will feature the same plastic shell as the phone-maker’s current-gen flagship, according to an industry guru who claims to have seen the handset in flesh.
In a post on the Mobile Review site he edits, Eldar Murtazin states that, unlike rivals’ efforts that feature materials more widely to be considered ‘premium’, the Galaxy S4 will retain the lighter – not to say cheaper – polycarbonate frame of the Galaxy S3.
The characteristically indiscreet analyst claims to have got up close and personal last month at Mobile World Congress in what we’re guessing was a smoke-filled room behind the scenes.
In the lead-up to the event Murtazin intimated that the phone would be present at the smartphone showcase, but hadn’t let slip that he’d be among the movers and shakers to be granted an audience with the handset.
Either way, the good news is that said group is about to get a lot less exclusive from March 14th, when Samsung is set to officially unveil its next smartphone challenger at a hullabaloo-packed press call at New York’s Radio City Music Hall.
The phone’s spec sheet remains very much under wraps right now. But rumours suggest it will feature a larger, five-inch Super AMOLED full HD screen and an Orb camera capable of 360-degree panoramic shots.
