The Galaxy S IV is expected to launched in the first quarter of 2013.
The source of this leak is Samsung itself, which accidentally leaked the new Galaxy S IV details at its booth in the 2013 Consumer Electronics Show (CES 2013).
According to this report, the Galaxy S IV will sport a 4.99 inch full HD (1080p) Super Amoled display with 440 ppi on a bendable or unbreakable screen. This confirms the trend to larger screen sizes that we mentioned to you in Breaking: New iPhone 5 beaten by Butterfly in Japan.
While there a many smartphones on the market with 5 inch displays (or nearly 5 inch displays), very few reach pixel density as high as 441 ppi and certainly none have a bendable or unbreakable screen. The technology to make a screen bendable or unbreakable does exist however, as demonstrated at CES 2013 with the Youm display.
The breathtaking 441 ppi display of the Galaxy S IV will make it a real challenger to the iPhone 5 with its stunning 326 ppi screen.
This report goes on to say that Samsung is going to use a new material in the Galaxy 4 S display that reduces power consumption by about 25 percent. There will also be “a low-power mode that will result in as much as 47 percent power saving” from presumably its new Exynos processor.
What's more, the Exynos processor in the Galaxy S IV will be 2GHz, quad-core, and the phone itself will have 2GB RAM with a 13 MP rear camera.
If Samsung can pull these specs off with the Galaxy S IV, what amazing display advances does Apple have up its sleeve for the next iPhone?
