Samsung Galaxy S4 – Model Number GT-I9500 Confirmed – Android or TIZEN?

Sam Mobile has confirmed that Samsung is working on a couple new devices, and the next flagship device from them would be the GT-I9500 model, and this probably should be the Galaxy S IV as the Galaxy Note that is being worked on, would be the GT-I5100 and Samsung is due to come up with the next Galaxy phone next year.
Model: GT-I9500
Model: GT-I9505 (Probably LTE version)
It would be interesting to see whether the phone would have the Android or TIZEN OS in it, and if its TIZEN, that should be the first handset from Samsung having the new interface.

Update: The Samsung Galaxy S IV won’t be probably available at the CES 2013, and we are noticing that from the teaser video the company released. CNet is reporting that the teaser video has shown Samsung preparing quite a lot, but hasn’t showcased anything or concentrated much in the Mobile phone category, and so the CES could not be the time when the S4 would be unveiled. We could expect in next in the Mobile World Congress 2013.
A report from the Wall Street Journal stated that Samsung is busy in the development of flexible displays for the handheld devices, and the expectation is that this technology could come in the next upcoming Galaxy device, i.e. the Samsung Galaxy S IV. There is also a speculation that the organic light-emitting diode (OLED) display could be integrated into the technology where the screen could be bent without breaking. A picture on Patent Bolt showed the technology that Samsung is working on. One of the best things about the technology is that the display won’t just be bendable, but can be stretched too.
Flexible Display System for Mobiles
If Samsung includes this flexible displays into the Galaxy S4 screen, there could be nothing beating it in the near time after the launch. If it doesn’t come in any of the Galaxy devices, we could still be seeing something new and interesting from Samsung.

Several rumors have come in, with a few strong ones claiming that there could be an unveiling done by the Samsung guys during the CES 2013, with the Samsung Galaxy S IV having a 4.99 inch screen, and quad-core 2.0GHz Exynos 5450 chipset. According to the Korean sources, the company is working on a device that would have those specs and at the Galaxy S4 is expected to be made public by that time, so we can connect the dots. Another expectation as seen earlier is the 13 megapixel camera, and the 1080p display.

CES is nearing and we are getting to hear more and more true/false news about the products that are going to be displayed there. The Samsung Galaxy S IV is expected, and now with a 1080p HD display, or is it just a false rumor to keep customers interested and keep themselves away from getting the Droid DNA until the S4 is launched? We are not sure about it, but news is that Samsung is working on the displays that boast the screen resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels. One of the Korean newspapers claimed to have heard from one of the Samsung’s officials that the 1080p displays that the company is working on, would be quite thin and have a better refresh rate and a low power consumption.
Another doubt here is whether Samsung is really working on these displays for the inclusion in the Galaxy S IV or any other high-end product that might make its way into the smartphone world pretty soon. Less than 2 months left for the CES and we are excited.
Update on 13th Nov 2012 -
A camera module leaked in the wild seems to be for one of the upcoming Samsung devices, and that most probably is the camera of the Samsung Galaxy S IV, because there are already a lot of speculations that the camera of the S4 would be a 13-megapixel one. The capture resolution was found to be 4208 x 3120 pixels and the included parameters are – 8.5(L) x 8.5(W) x 5.9(H). It’s something just found recently in one of the documents from the company, and the expected date of release of the phone is Mobile World Congress, during the last week of February 2013.

Update on 06th Nov 2012 -
The Samsung Galaxy S4 is going to be powered by the 1080p HD LCD screen and not the AMOLED one, as what the Sam Mobile confirms. The reason being claimed is that the manufacturer hasn’t been able to prepare an AMOLED display with such a high resolution, thus would see the LCD as a better option. LCDs are said to be quite vibrant in colors, but AMOLEDs have been quite energy efficient at the same time, so both the displays have their own advantages and disadvantages. We would see it as a disappointment from many if there is no AMOLED display.
Update on 31/10/2012 -
We’ve got some news about the processor that the Galaxy S IV would be coming in with. It could have the Exynos “Adonis” 28 nanometer quad-core ARM Cortex A15 CPU, and Samsung is testing out the processors and would be doing the mass production and that would probably be into the Samsung Galaxy S4 in the early months of 2013.
They have set the codename as Adonis, which is to mean something about the high-performance, low-power.
Keep checking out, there should be some exciting news coming soon. It’s already the end of the year!
Update on 04/10/2012 – With just over 20 million Galaxy S III smartphones sold in mere 100 days, it now seems like Samsung is working hard to come up with a much powerful smartphone which will be dubbed as Samsung Galaxy S4 rolled out in the coming months, may be in MWC 2013 or in CES 2013.

Update on 17/09/2012 – Samsung and Apple are fierce rivals for the leadership in smart phone. The degree got hotter when the US based company launched iPhone 5 last week in response to Samsung Galaxy S III and Galaxy Note 2. iPhone 5 received a mixed response from its consumers and industry experts as the device lacked innovative features. But still iPhone 5 is a better smart phone launched in competition with Galaxy S III.
Presently the Samsung is the #1 manufacturer leaving behind Apple and Nokia in the race. For Samsung to be king, it required their devices like Galaxy S, S II and S III released on time to compete in market. The Samsung Galaxy S IIIbroke the record very recently by crossing 20 million unit sales in course of 100 days since the launch beating iPhone record.
Every year we see a new Galaxy S series successor available, and the debut of Galaxy S set the tone for Samsung initially. Furthermore when Galaxy S II was launched in the market, the scenario for Samsung even got better with device topping the charts in terms of sales. And with Samsung Galaxy S III in the market, the launch event got so bigger in comparison with Apple iPhone launch events.
Samsung Electronics is planning to launch iPhone 5 killer in coming months and device should be definitely Galaxy S 4 as expected. But as we say, it could easily take another 6 months for the Korean giant to produce a device which is competitive & better in terms of hardware design and configuration.Samsung Galaxy S4
Samsung is ready to launch Galaxy S4 during the world’s biggest exhibition for telecom and mobile companies to exhibit their latest development and we receive reports of Galaxy S III successor to be available at Samsung booth. The officials pointed out that their new flagship model will be released in nine months after the May 2012 debut of Samsung Galaxy S III. It will be more enough to curb the latest Apple iPhone development and device should be easily capable with the LTE network.
Samsung is king in the Asian market and it has gained a bigger market share in Europe. The only country where it got hit is the homeland of Apple i.e., United States but for Samsung that doesn’t matter as its main rival didn’t concentrate on many countries expect United States. For Samsung everything is under their control, from Super AMOLED OLED display to Exynos S4 processor, they have everything right infront of them to come out with a device with on time and they are capable deliver the number of output device within the expected time.
Samsung Galaxy S 4 Specifications
The Korean giant is still to decide on what could be the exact Galaxy S 4 device looks like, whether it will include the flexible display technology or use the Super AMOLED Plus display. So far its design is kept the same with rounded corner concept but we might see some changes claimed by one of the Samsung’s local officials.
We see Samsung Galaxy S 4 certainly with better specifications and inclusion of quad core Exynos processor and better hardware configuration but nothing were released at this moment as it’s too early to comment on the device.
Market researchers and experts views Galaxy S4 a clear message to Apple as they are capable to widen its lead over Apple leaving behind the legal disputes. Samsung is expecting that it’s device will cross the 30 million unit sales in 100 days to break their record of Galaxy S III which was achieved very recently.
