The Samsung Galaxy S4 is expected to be unveiled at a Samsung Unpacked event in March, and will apparently go on sale worldwide in April, yesterday we saw a leaked photo of the Samsung Galaxy S4, and today we have some possible new information about Samsung’s flagship Android smartphone.
The Samsung Galaxy S4 is rumored to feature a 4.99 inch Super AMOLED display with a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels, it was previously thought that the display would come with around 440 pixels per inch (ppi), but according to a recent report, Samsung will be introducing some new display technology with a higher ppi in the Galaxy S4.
Samsung is rumored to have developers a new pixel layout for its new smaller AMOLED panels, this has been done to increase their resolution, and the Galaxy S4 is expected to come with a higher pixel per inch layout than the previously rumored 440ppi.
The sources said Samsung is developing hexagon- and diamond-shaped pixel layouts for the panels in order to increase resolutions above 440ppi, which is difficult to achieve using the current side-by-side layout.
As yet we do not know what the exact pixels per inch will be on the Samsung Galaxy S4, how much higher it will be than the 440ppi remains to be seen, it will be interesting to see what this new display is like when it is introduced, we wonder if Samsung will show it off at MWC 2013 next month.
Other rumored specifications on the Samsung Galaxy S4 include their new 8 core Exynos Octa 5 processor which is rumored to be clocked at 1.8GHz, plus 2GB of RAM and a Mali-T658 GPU.
The Samsung Galaxy S4 is also rumored to feature a 2 megapixel front facing camera for video chat and a rear facing 13 megapixel camera for photos and video, plus the device will come with some sort of wireless charging.
