    While I doubt the specs are real, I remember rumors last year of the original launch date of the SIII being around MWC. Maybe they're back to that time frame with the S4.

    Samsung Galaxy S4 Release Date Set For January 2013, At CES?

    March 2013-ish outside US release would mean June or July 2013. My bet is still August 2013.

    So is the new theory if people keep citing information off one false rumor, it magically becomes real???

    Hey! Didn't you know that if you read it on the Internet it has to be true? It is a law or something I think

    I'm as gulity as the next guy of always wanting the next best thing but it will never stop. I make myself sick sometimes trying to figure out how I'm going to get this device or that device or if I should. I'm upgrading next month to the Maxx HD and I am hopeful that I will just be happy with what I have... doubt it but I'm trying to be hopefully

    Until the CES occurs, the following rumored specs are fairly reasonable. 5 inch Super Amoled HD display with 2 GB RAM, quadcore processor compatible with LTE (hopefully, at least, 2GHz).

    I suspect that Sammy will try to maintain the thinness of the GS3 so a 12 or 13 MP camera is a bit out there as the thickness would have to increase. The OS will depend upon the timing of the release but JB makes the most sense. I hope that Sammy continues with GG2 and at least a 3 MP FFC as well as all the current JB bells and whistles.If a 12 MP camera is included, then a 4000mAh battery would not be a bad thing.

    The j butterfly isn't much thicker and is sporting a 13mp camera I believe.

    You are right though. Those are going to be ballpark specs for all the high end phones in early 2013.

    I want the camera to go up a notch and the storage space to go up to 32gb min. That is all I want out of 2013. I guess I should say the batteries to go up as well, but if not, I am ok with it. Then again I am easy to please on that one.

    No reason to think it will be anything other than plastic. They have sold 100 million plastic ones, I do not see them changing that

    The specs you linked to look like no more than blog spam. What do they mean when they say Samsung is "switching" to OLED? They are already using SAMOLED... I have no doubt that the galaxy s4 will be an amazing phone, but I wouldn't hold off on purchasing anything due to these rumors.

    While I don't really look much into rumors I just hope the minimum storage internally is 32gb

    I think they would do the same as this year. A 16 and 32 with an sdcard. Why mess with what works. Especially since by then the iNexus users will be getting pretty hot and bothered either about lack of space or the 32gb that came out

    I agree but the SD card is just for music and pics not apps if I can find a 32gb note 2 I'd buy since I plan on using it for Atleast a year in a half

    While 32 GB would be great as a minimum, as long as the storage can be expanded by 64 GB and someday 128k, this would not be a deal-breaker. TPU or some other carbon fiber polycarbonate battery cover is pretty much the norm for Sammy to keep down the weight with the 5 inch screen size and radio performance. The rumored processor having already been used before is also reasonable to expect.

    Kinda tough to have a release date for an unannounced phone. They can make it what ever you want

    -Will OLED displays even be ready by then (high enough yields)? What res? What size? And why OLED? Logically, I can see a 5" device with 1080p SAMOLED+ (don't keep up with OLEDs to know much about their development). To keep things down to Earth, the next screen might not even be a "+". There's a 1080p SAMOLED in development, but it's not clear whether it'll be pentile or not.
    OLED = single organic diode on the screen (which is single RGB color on single pixel), don't misunderstand this with LED TV, LED there means LCD backlighted with LEDs
    AMOLED = matrix of OLEDs creating a screen
    PenTile = specific way of making AMOLEDs made by Samsung

    Everything beyond that is marketing BS so don't care about names because thye misleading, care about specs
