There is a lot of speculation about what to expect from the Galaxy S4, but so far Samsung has done a remarkable job of keeping the details pretty hushed. Considering how popular and successful the S3 has been, it is no surprise that people are sitting on the edge of their seat waiting to see it unveiled. After all, rumor implies that there will be some pretty futuristic features that you won’t find elsewhere.
One might find it hard to believe that Samsung can make a phone any thinner or lighter, but they have managed to do just that. The display that Galaxy S3 boasts is already huge at 4.8 inches, but it is suggested that S4 is going to top that, measuring in at 5 inches. It will have full HD resolution of 440 pixels. Considering S3 was 306 pixels, this is a huge change. Not to mention, this is a full inch larger than iPhone.
It is also assumed that S4 will have a faster processor than S3. Users should enjoy a 1.8 GHz quad-core processor. This means that it will be more effective and faster than S3, as if there was really any improvement that was needed at all!
As for the camera, there is some speculation that S4 will boast 13 megapixels! S3 already has 8 megapixels and takes gorgeous pictures, so such an increase would be a little baffling. While the upgrade is not necessarily needed, Samsung tends to always improve their camera is some way, so it will be exciting to see if they did increase the megapixels again.
There have been rumors going around about a few features that S4 will have. These are features that really surpass what most would expect or hope for in a phone. If the phone has all of these, it is safe to say it will set a new bar in technology standards.
- Touchless Features – You may be able to answer your phone by simply holding it up to your ear. This will likely get mixed reviews. While some may appreciate this feature, others will probably see it as a nuisance. Hopefully, if this feature is present, there will be a way to shut it off.
- Near Field Communications – Samsung and Visa® have an agreement that will allow you to make payments with your virtual wallet through Near Field Communications. You will simply need to load your credit card information, and then you will have access to the PayWave system that simply requires you to tap your phone to pay.
- Wireless Charging – Having the ability to wirelessly charge your phone using Qi Standard could be the solution for busy folks who tend to run out of juice on their phone before they have time to recharge. It is suggested that users may need to purchase a replacement back cover to have access to a charging pad.
- Eye tracking Technology – Here is the big feature that everyone is dying to see. The phone may have the ability to track the user’s eye movement to determine where to scroll. When the eyes reach the bottom of the page, the software will know to scroll down to reveal the next paragraph. Eye tracking systems have actually been in development for quite a while, so it will be exciting to actually see a phone with it in production.
