Well, this one look to be the DUO ( dual slim ) chinese version, well we will know if it is a proto or if the S4 is right like that.

Many rumors, and like allways many things was not on the S3..

UPDATE: According to our insider who gave us the first info on the Octa-Core and the PHOLED screen this is not the real deal. This is just one of the prototypes flying around and we know there are a few flying around of those. He told us to trust him. We will know if he was right tonight!
I dont know if he mean about the specs or the design..

Pholed 5" display ( 1080x1920 ) ?

Samsung going to unveil the Galaxy S IV tonight. According the latest information the Galaxy S IV will have a PHOLED display. This is a new kind of AMOLED display. Samsung may call this screen type Hyper Bright Display. Hyper Bright Display know as PHOLED are more efficient and cost lower power than Samsungís current AMOLED display! Samsung just trademarked Hyper Bright Display. We canít wait to see and hold this display in our hands!

We expect Samsung to announce this display tonight, together with the other unique selling point the Octa-Core processor.

Make sure to follow us on twitter for more information about the Galaxy S IV and check our news posts about the Galaxy S IV.

I was interested first in the S4 too but i'm glad i bought the Note II instead, its a hell of a phone, so i guess i don't miss that much features of the S4, there will definitely something ported over to the N2. On the Paper the S4 is too much overkill and 1920x1080 on a phone? i don't know my father owns a Xperia Z and i can't really see that much difference from my 1280x720 to his 1920x1080 in terms of sharpness.

Thats more promising if its prototype! not too bothered about plastic. Infact i like it, its makes phone lighter and harder to smash compare to a glass.

Guess we have to sit tight and wait!

Me too, but looking the numbers of phone they need to products and the rythm of production, they cant got the same problems have got Apple, HTC and other with "metal" like cases, i think they will surely not goes with it.

I can safely say after watching that and not really getting any information, I was put off by that complete train wreck and I wont be buying one purely on the back of that crap, how can I support a company who does that?

What really pissed me off is they didn't make a distinction over what hardware was going into what version. Will the 4G version have the Exynos? Will it have the 544mp3? If the 4G version doesn't and it has a snap dragon adreno 320, it's failed right there...

ALL version are 4G/LTE internation or not.. Now the soc for US should be S600, the Exynos Octo for the International with the 544. ( lets wait confirmation, i still dont understand why they use 2 versions ).

Dont forget, for Samsung, this " unpacked " is just a teaser, a presentation.. the real launch is coming then with more details. They do it allways in 2 tiimes . They are maybe Korean, but they have largely adopt the US marketing method lol .

And yeah the conference was terrible. I personally wanted solid launch dates, prices, more info on the hardware. I don't care for google replicated samsung branded features. "PICTURES WITH SOUND" it's called a video.

Whether or not they would have problems with a metal casing depends on the type and quality of metal used. Apple used low quality aluminum for the iPhone5 which resulted in problems

Yup that's what I thought I heard but then they seemed to blend their specs together only making the distinction of regional change. Like if the Exynos still doesn't support 4G then I wont buy it, like why would I buy a 3G only phone now?

Such a big disappointment if that is the case, all these phones though have been, the HTC one, no micro sd STILL, ****ty camera, I don't like LCD etc etc. Now we have this weird sku system from Samsung at a time where 4G is pretty much a given for most countries within the next year, why lock yourself into a two year contract with a 3G phone?

None of them really do anything amazing, the one pretty much is a one x and the GS4 is pretty much a GS3, no interesting changes.

Tbh the phone I'd buy is a Nokia 930 with a beefed up GPU, OLED screen, 41 mp cam and a Micro SD slot.

Give me that phone Nokia! I wouldn't even mind using Windows Phone, I'm not much of an app person.

if this was apple, this topic would be full of hate posts about same design etc.

The Haters who keeps hating apples iphone design manifesto, check Samsung sht. they keep copy paste same sht all over the place. since s3 all samsung touch phones has same design and here S4 too.. Bravo.


Sign my name, if there will be iphone mini, most of the haters gonna post that: apple same design, gay apple sht apple.

Yeah. Sht Samsung. Boring gay samsung too.

i now, want to see Xperia Z and HTC ONE with their at least non pastic body designs. god damn even NEXUS 4 bets the design of Samsung.

And you know, you can buy and download apps that does what S3 does. i forgot the names of those stuff. u know., keep awake , dont rotate etc. i use on nexus 4 and they work.

edit: is the body plastic or what? im confused.

There's no point of dont put 4G on their phone, but the frequences used on USA are not the same, and Qualcomm have it included on the SOC.

The case, well i will like they put something more classy, metal on back, or with a soft grip. ( but i can understand weight allow to put bigger battery, bigger APN and still say really light. cost less ofc for them, but too they will never been able to keep the production rate and supply with metal case ( look all the problem have got other brand with that to maintain a good quality and supply ).

Specially if they made assemble it by Foxconn, i doubt they enough line of production for do it.

Now: the screen is just completely stunning. the 13MP camera look just excellent ( for have seen photo comparaison with the I5 and Xperia Z ).

Galaxy 3S

Seriously, there is nothing here for the most part that can't be backported to the Galaxy S3 or that apps can't do for any modern android phone. The field is wide open for Motorola and Google with their "X-phone" and Apple to finally make a new modern interface and continue to take the lead. Absolutely no one I talked to was anymore excited for the S4 than they were for the S3.

That being said, props to Samsung for the replaceable battery and Micro-SD.
