It is going to be a much more improved handset than its present iteration. Samsung Galaxy S4 will come with S Pen, laser keyboard and 1080p FullHD. Its release date is expected to be in early 2013

Samsung’s next generation Galaxy S IV rumors are picking up steam. Well, rumor mills have been churning out fresh rumors about the handset for a while. The device is set to become a sophisticated upgrade to the current Galaxy S III. Various rumors are talking about some stunning features of the fourth generation Android flagship phone from Samsung. Here let us have a look into some current rumors about the device. According to the rumors, Samsung Galaxy S IV would be a superb handset with nice specs.

To Integrate an S Pen: A fresh rumor suggests that the S IV would tout an S Pen stylus like the Galaxy Note and Note II. The handset, thanks to its larger display, will require S Pen for easier handling of the things. It will be great to see the next Galaxy S version with a stylish digitizer pen for the purpose of writing on screen, opening pages and managing the entire device. “If the S Pen report turns out to be true, the Samsung Galaxy S IV is bound to one up all its competitors as far as productivity is concerned,” says GSM Arena.

A Laser Keyboard Dock: The phone is to sport a special trait this time. Yes, Samsung is reportedly working on integrating a laser keyboard with an optional dock for the handset. That is, you can carry a keyboard in your trips. As you mount the handset on the dock, its laser keyboard will appear on the table or any surface. You can type content on the virtual keyboard, which will appear on the device’s screen with no delay.

2GHz quad-core Exynos CPU: Well, the next Galaxy S handset is to come with extra power. The device will mount a new 2GHz quad core Exynos chipset from Samsung. Apart from the model used in Galaxy S III, we can certainly expect a new model onboard the S IV. It will be powering the device far better and stable, rumors say.

5-inch Full HD Super AMOLED Display: It is an almost sure feature. The new Galaxy S handset is largely rumored to debut Samsung’s next version 1080p FullHD Super AMOLED display. The attribute will join Galaxy S IV among the new horde of 5-inch FHD handsets. The S IV can thus compete with the devices such as HTC’s DROID DNA, Oppo’s Find 5, Huawei Ascend D2 and more. A YouTube user called RozeTeko recently posted a replica of the forthcoming Galaxy S IV. With inputs from the current rumors, the eccentric tech buff has developed the life-like phone. That handset calls the 5-inch FHD display from Samsung as Grand display.

Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie: We all rumored that Google would roll out its next version Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie as an upgrade to the 4.1 Jelly Bean later this year. Google didn’t release that version; instead it brought us Android 4.2 Jelly Bean for devices like Nexus 4, Nexus 7 and Nexus 10. As per some recent rumors, the company plans to release Galaxy S IV with next major Android update, the Key Lime Pie. Of course, by the time Samsung is to release its next Galaxy S phone, Google would have unveiled KLP as an upgrade for Jelly Bean.

A 13MP Rear Camera: It is the right time we can expect a heavy 13MP rear camera on Samsung’s flagship Android phone series. For the last two times, Samsung added 8MP cameras to the series. Hence, let us rightly hope that the next version would have a more powerful 13MP camera. All rumors suggest the same. And, all possible rivals for the S IV would also have better cameras. So Samsung may not also drop it.
