Samsung Galaxy S4 imminent
The Samsung Galaxy S4 was not present at Mobile World Congress last month, but speculation about the appearance and features of the Samsung Galaxy S4 has intensified in recent weeks ahead of the official launch.
A report last week claimed that the smartphone will include an eye scrolling feature that automatically scrolls down when a user’s eye reaches the bottom of the screen. It has also been suggested that it could be the largest Samsung Galaxy S smartphone released yet, boasting a five inch Super AMOLED full HD touchscreen.
According to leaked specifications, the Galaxy S4 will have a 13 megapixel camera, run Android 4.2 Jelly Bean and have 2GB of RAM. It will come with 16GB, 32GB or 64GB of storage.
The smartphone will succeed the hugely popular Samsung Galaxy S3, which shifts 190,000 units every single day. The Samsung Galaxy S4 is due to be revealed at midnight on Thursday.
