South Korean mobile phone maker Samsung Electronics is expected to make the successor of its Galaxy S III smartphone official in the first half of the next year, some of the latest reports on the matter suggest.The company is also said to plan packing the upcoming handset with an Exynos 5450 processor inside, although no official announcement on the matter has been made so far.
Galaxy S III, this year’s flagship device, has been launched with an Exynos 4412 SoC inside, a quad-core processor clocked in at 1.4GHz (based on Cortex – A9 architecture).
Next year’s Android flagship should prove even faster than this device, and the aforementioned Exynos 5450 CPU would be the main reason for that, a recent article on DDaily reads.
The SoC will arrive as a 2.0GHz quad-core processor (based on Cortex – A15 architecture), and should deliver better performance capabilities when compared to the Exynos 5250 chip that Samsung is said to have initially planned for the device.
Apparently, the upcoming Galaxy S IV smartphone will prove to be a real game changer, at least this is what initial reports on it suggest.
In addition to the fast processor inside, the smartphone is also expected to arrive on shelves with a large 5-inch touchscreen display, capable of delivering a full HD resolution.
The latest flagship Android handsets from LG are expected to prove worthy rivals to Samsung’s own devices, which would determine the company to also increase the build quality of these smartphones, to strengthen its leading position on the market.
Unfortunately, with no official confirmation on this, the news on Samsung’s plans for the next year are merely rumors and should be treated as such until a formal announcement is made.
However, there is also the possibility that these details will pan out, and that the successor of Galaxy S III will indeed prove to be a highly appealing device, just as any enthusiasts is expecting.
