We have been hearing a number of rumors about the Samsung Galaxy S4 over the last few weeks, yesterday we heard that the Samsung Galaxy S4 will come with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 quad core processor.
We had previously heard that the Samsung Galaxy S4 would feature an 8 core Exynos 5 Octa processor, and now it would appear that the international version of the Galaxy S4 will feature the 8 core version and the US version will feature the Snapdragon 600 quad core processor.
This is something which we mentioned previously, as there have been numerous reports of both processors for the Samsung Galaxy S4, and the Snapdragon 600 processor even appeared in some benchmarks.
The US version of the Samsung Galaxy S4 is rumored to feature a 1.9GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 processor, where as the European version of the handset is expected to feature a 8 core Exynos 5 Octa processor with a clock speed of 1.8GHz.
Other specifications on the Samsung Galaxy S4 will remain the same for both the US and Europe, with a 4.99 inch full HD display with a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels and 2GB of RAM.
The Samsung Galaxy S4 will also come with a choice of 16GB, 32GB or 64GB of built in storage, plus a 13 megapixel camera, and the handset is also rumored to come with some interesting new features.
Some of the rumored features on the Galaxy S4 include, Samsung Orb, which is basically Samsung’s version of Android’s Photo Sphere for the Samsung Galaxy S4, the device is also rumored to come with new eye tracking technology.
We do not know very much about the new eye tracking technology on the Galaxy S4 as yet, what we do know is that it will come with features that are called Eye Scroll and Eye Pause, as these were discovered in some recent Samsung patent filings.
Another new rumored feature for the Samsung Galaxy S4 is touchless gestures, one way they could work is that 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.
Samsung are holding their Samsung Unpacked event in New York on the 14th of March, where they will officially unveil the new Galaxy S4, and we are expecting the handset to launch worldwide in April, with a rumored launch date of some time between the 15th and 22nd of April.
