Korean news site DDaily has reported that Samsung will begin manufacturing its new full HD AMOLED smartphone panel later this month. The five-inch display, which was teased at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Vegas last month, will be mass produced from the end of February and shipped for commercial release in early March.
Yes, if you’re thinking what we’re thinking, then you’ve guessed right. It sure does sound like Samsung is gearing up for an imminent launch of the much-anticipated Samsung GALAXY SIV/Samsung GALAXY S4.
Aside from a five-inch 1080p display, the smartphone is also mooted to feature an eight-core Exynos processor (also showcased at CES) plus a 13-megapixel camera, and built-in wireless charging capabilities.
Meanwhile, other rumours suggest that the design for the smartphone has been finalized and that there will be no major aesthetic changes. Its well-known button is here to stay. Also, it looks like there will not be an S-Pen present, contrary to previous “predictions”.
Samsung is tipped to officially raise the curtain on the Samsung GALAXY SIV/Samsung GALAXY S4 sometime between March 15th and 22nd in a location supposedly right on “Apple’s doorstep”. Meanwhile, here’s a video to (sorta) quench your “thirsty” curiosity:
