We know that the Samsung Galaxy S4 will be available in at least two different versions, one for the US and an international Samsung Galaxy S4, and now we have some more details about the international version of the device.
The international version of the Samsung Galaxy S4 will use Samsung’s 8 core Exynos 5 Octa processor, and now it looks like the handset will feature a PowerVR SGX 544MP3 GPU from Imagination Technologies.
Imagination Technologies have confirmed to Anadtech that the Samsung Exynos 5 Octa processor will use the PowerVR SGX 544MP3 GPU, so it looks like this will also be included in the Samsung Galaxy S4.
The US version of the Samsung Galaxy S4 will apparently use a Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 processor with a 1.8GHz clock speed, other specifications on the Samsung Galaxy S4 will be the same for both versions.
The Samsung Galaxy S4 will feature a 4.99 inch AMOLED full high definition display with a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels, it will also come with 2GB of RAM and a choice of either 16GB, 32GB or 64GB of built in storage, plus a microSD card slot.
There will be dual cameras on the Samsung Galaxy S4 will a 2.1 megapixel camera up front for video calls and a 13 megapixel camera on the back for photos and video, it will also come with Samsung Orb which is their version of Android’s Photo Sphere.
The Samsung Galaxy S4 will come with Samsung Wallet, a new feature which was announced recently, similar to Apple’s Passbook, and it will also feature NFC mobile payments, as Samsung recently announced that they had teamed up with Visa to offer mobile NFC payments on future Samsung devices.
It is also rumored to feature touchless gestures, which could be used to perform an action on your Samsung Galaxy S4 without having to touch the display, for example if you want to answer an incoming call on your Galaxy S4 you would just lift the handset to your ear to answer the call, rather than pressing a button first.
Another new feature that will launch with the Samsung Galaxy S4 is eye tracking technology, in the form of Eye Scroll and Eye Pause, these trademarks were recently discovered and whilst we do not know exactly what they will do we can speculate on what they will be used for, for example Eye Pause could be used to pause a video you are watching on your Samsung Galaxy S4 when you move your eyes away from the display.
We will have full details on the Samsung Galaxy S4 tomorrow, when the device is officially unveiled at a Samsung Unpacked event in New York, the event will also be live streamed in Times Square and on YouTube.
