    Is this going to be a trend? I have bad memories of IR from my Palm devices.

    "Thanks to the famous Chinese poster we know more about the screen technology but there is more. According to the same source who has also published a review (Chinese) its possible that the successor of the Galaxy S3 will have an IR (Infrared) blaster."

    I know you're talking about the IR blaster here, but by those pictures it just does not look thinner than the S3...

    As for the IR blaster here, as long as it could possibly be used without the smart tv (my regular Samsung HDTV) that would be nice. Otherwise not worthwhile.
    I already have smartglass for my xbox, and a separate controller for my uverse, so it would basically only be for volume

    According to the article the thinking was:

    "Its possible that Samsung will preinstall their TV Discovery app, which they also included for the Galaxy Note 8.0, or they have more software enhancement which will take advantage of the IR blaster . With the TV Discovery app you can control your Smart TV and your entertainment centre directly from one device!"
