2012 hasn’t ended yet, but we’re already looking forward to 2013. While this year was the year of Samsung, what with its successful smartphones the Galaxy S3 and the Galaxy Note 2, we can’t wait to find out what the world’s largest maker of smartphones has in store for us next year. We’ve heard rumors of the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S4, and based on what we’ve heard so far, we decided to pit it against one of its toughest competitors, the iPhone 5. Read on to know the juicy details.
On the outside: Like we said, we don’t really know much about the Galaxy S4 yet, but rumor has it that it could be 9.1 mm thick, which makes it thicker than the Galaxy S3 and even the iPhone 5. We’re expecting the Galaxy S4 to have a brilliant 5-inch full AMOLED HD display with a resolution of 441 ppi and would support the S-Pen, which would definitely give it an edge over the iPhone 5’s4-inch Retina Display screen.
On the inside: The Samsung Galaxy S4 can be expected to have a quad-core processor and 2 GB of RAM. It would run on Android 4.2. The Apple iPhone 5 has a dual-core processor, 1 GB of RAM and runs on iOS 6. While we can’t quite compare the OS’s, in terms of processing power, the former seems to be pretty well equipped.
The camera: Samsung Galaxy S4 is rumored to have a whopping 13 MP rear camera. If this is true, then this certainly fares way better than the iPhone 5’s 8 MP camera. We’ve also heard that the front-facing camera could be a 1.9 MP one, which is slightly better than the iPhone 5’s 1.2 MP.
Yes, we can sense the excitement building up within you as you read about the Galaxy S4, and we’re right there with you. But we assure you that we’ll bring you all the latest updates about this wonder as soon as we get to know more!
