BREAKING: Samsung ditches own AMOLED and EXYNOS inside new Galaxy S IV

Home / News / BREAKING: Samsung ditches own AMOLED and EXYNOS inside new Galaxy S IV

Yes you just read the title of this message right. Our insider just gave us the first official “unconfirmed” specifications of the next generation Galaxy S, the Galaxy S IV. The Galaxy S IV will no longer use the Samsung EXYNOS processor and according to the latest rumours this processor has overheating issues. Today we can confirm Samsung will use the Snapdragon 600 and it is clocked at 1.9 Ghz which is 0.2 Ghz higher than the HTC One. The Galaxy S IV will have 2 GB of RAM and will come in three variants 16, 32 or 64 GB. As the rumours earlier reported Samsung is going to use a Full HD display. The Galaxy S IV uses a 4,99″ Full-HD SoLux Display we have no information if this is based on LCD3 like the HTC One. But a couple of months ago we posted the first hint regarding Samsung’s LCD factory is ready to produce Full HD panels from early 2013. And we also know Samsung’s AMOLED factory does have many problems with the production of full HD AMOLED screens.

We also know more about the build and dimensions of the device. According to our insider the dimensions of the device are 140.1 x 71.8 x 7.7mm and the weight is 138 gram, the new Galaxy S IV will use a home button and will have touch buttons. If you look at the photo below you will see that it will be square formed again, so they dropped the Galaxy SIII design line. He also said the sides are made from aluminium but the back is still plastic which automatic hints to a removable battery which is good to know.

Yesterday we already found out that the Galaxy S IV will have a 13 megapixel camera. Some leaked photos created by the Galaxy S IV showed up to confirm that.

If our insider is right again this is a bad sign for all the EXYNOS and AMOLED freaks out there. Below a list of the confirmed specifications through us right under the specification list you will see the boot screen photo.

– 4,99″ Full-HD SoLux Display
– Snapdragon 600 1.9 Ghz
– 2 GB RAM
– 16, 32 or 64 GB
– 13 Megapixel
– 140.1 x 71.8 x 7.7mm
– 138 gram
– Home button with touch buttons
– Plastic back with aluminium sides
– Removable battery
– Black / White

I was hoping for an end-to-end screen. No bevel. When are we going to get that?

Samsung Galaxy S4 = Snapdragon 600
ZTE Grand Memo = Snapdragon 800

Please Samsung, more respect! It’s a flagship device!!!

Learn from HTC, Aluminium, not plastic.

Well all I have to say is before this galaxy S business came about with this company I used to tell people to stay away from their products as they made the worst flacking phones in the world, because they don’t listen to customers and put out poor quality and laggy camera’s and laggy performing phones consistently which proves they are just like every other corporation out there big, greedy and lazy expecting something for nothing. Had nothing to do with brand religion it’s just the facts, the other issues were their phones were way too expensive without warrant to… Read more »

Wow! so true. If the prozessor wont be an octa core and they wont use an unbreakable Amoled display, than the S4 is exactly the same like the Xperia Z and the HTC One. At least the One has some inovations e.g. the camera and the stereo speakers. Therefore everyone won´t buy the S4, because it isnt something special and ,as you said, the S3 will be just an “one hit wonder”.

So please Sammy, don´t do the mainstream sh** like the other companys!

Note to Samsung, don’t release a phone just to fulfill some release schedule to keep your stock holders happy because you will be doing them an injustice and it will backfire on you. Release a phone worthy of your new reputation you have earned 100% since last years product lineup and don’t give that success away with cheap-shot effort and design, from staff who was probably pushed to make crappy hardware. TAKE YOUR TIME and do this next release right and everyone wins. I say scrap this upcoming release all together and get your bugs fixed because this kind of… Read more »

Whether this is true or not I think many people are overlooking one important fact. With Samsung possibly using Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 600, maybe, hopefully the source code required for the people at CyanogenMod will be easier to get. It’s quite a shame that my Galaxy S I9000M runs CM10.1 better than my brand new I9300. Seriously, the keyboard animations, transition animations, and camera all work flawlessly on my I9000M (which has been given to family). Too bad the same can’t be said for my I9300. It kind of sucks knowing I paid over $600 for the I9300 that, while powerful,… Read more »

You seriously want to tangle with the hassle of HTC’s S-On/S-Off bootloaders? At the very least Samsung’s bootloaders are unlocked (minus Verizon) and you have Odin mode as a last ditch savior.

The picture is fake. On all Samsung Galaxy S bootscreens the X in the word Galaxy touches the g in the word Samsung. This is the same on all resolutions 800×480, 1280×720 and 1280×800 so it will be the same on 1920×1080.

Also these romours could be fake so that we will be even more supprised when the S4 comes out and it has Exynos and Amoled

I completely agree with you, emieltes. This is Sammie’s flagship smartphone, and they’ll do the right thing.

Obviously, the picture is fake as the newly announced Note 8.0 sports the curved, rounded design.

I call BS/fakey on both rumored last-minute changes. Complete nonsensical BS from some Apple zealot. First, wouldn’t you expect a different screenshot sample besides a white-on-black, obviously fake, banner? Gorgeous sample screen, ain’t it? If any of you watched the Sammie CES Keynote from January, they were pimping both AMOLED and Exynos in a big way. I *highly* doubt they would’ve done this so close to the product announcement were they contemplating even one of these outlandish claims. If it doesn’t make sense (which it doesn’t), then it’s a flat-out lie.

I actually like this change. Dumping the Exynos with its big-little design for te qualcomm is a good idea. Also the dimensions of the phone are still in the acceptable range. Almost the same size as the S3.

So lets say its true. Galaxy SIV is “ruined” (RUINED) because it will have a Full HD display with a pixel density of 468ppi (the highest pixel density on the planet). At the same time it will have the Snapdragon S600 (one of the fastest cpus ever). Yeah SIV is ruined noone will buy it.

OH MY GOD WHY S600? NOW I WILL NOT BE ABLE TO PLAY CRYSIS 3 ON 1920×1080 AND THEN LAUNCH AND NUCLEAR ATTACK TO DESTROY MARS FROM MY PHONE.

I’m not quite sure where you’re getting your information, however, 468 is currently the highest on the planet and it resides inside the HTC One. I do appreciate the Snapdragon 600 though. Samsung said their pixel would be around 440.SGS4 Did clock in at 1.9ghz which is .2ghz higher than the One. I am a big fan of Samsung and also used to be a huge HTC fan. That all being said, I have grown a little tired of their (Samsung) design; I’m a grown up now and no longer want to play with plastic, toy phones. lol HTC really… Read more »

Hey Danny is the battery size still looking like 2600mah?

Also if this screen is the same as the DNA, I consider that great news. As for the CPU, I don’t really care either way.

This is extremely disappointing without question. The Galaxy S4 is if correct is about to break some serious traditions which can’t be good. No Exynos 5 Octa, No Amoled, the same 16, 32, 64, configuration which weren’t supposed to be it was to be 32gb and 64gb internal this is not kool. This the states will get 16gb and 32gb version only NO 64GB will make it to the states. Using Snapdragon 600 instead of Exynos 5 Octa leads me to believe that the Exynos 5 Octa will arrive later this year in the Galaxy Note 3. Matter of fact… Read more »

why I bought Samsung all these years? Believe me, ONLY because of AMOLED. It’s just sharp and way better that any other display out in the market. (honestly including Retina too)

So no AMOLED, no S4.
I LOVE my S3 for ever. Won’t upgrade to S4, if it isn’t an AMOLED.

Processor, no problem at all. but it would be cool if it has 8 cores 😛

This is very good news! I’ve always wanted a good, optimized processor in my Samsung device, and also a good quality screen. Now this seems to come true. At last they’ll get rid of this PenTile and put a true RGB screen into the phone. Samsung’s AMOLED displays have been in beta stage and they have to disappear until they’re production ready. So many times we have read about quality issues with these displays. What sucks is the build quality. Samsung doesn’t seem to notice that the competitors make beautifully crafted devices and goes with that plasticky design again and… Read more »

I do care about the replaceable battery. If it hadn’t one I might as well get a HTC.
I always have with me a spare battery with me for my s2 and it comes in handy many times

Anyway, I’m sure that won’t be the final design of the S4. Guessing it is a prototype for development like that prototype SII they had on video.

Galaxy doesn’t automatically mean AMOLED or Exynos. Only the Galaxy S series had AMOLED-screens all the way through. In terms of processor, the Galaxy S had a Hummingbird cpu and the late S2 had an OMAP from TI. So, it’s not like the customers have a right to insist on any of that. I don’t really get the problem here for the customer. The Snapdragon has proven to be an excellent processor and easily capable of what it needs to be in a high-end smartphone. And there’s been lots of top display-panels from other manufacturers as well when we should… Read more »

snapdragon 600 is a really good cpu but there is also snapdragon 800.
Apart from that there is also some other model of exynos that can do the job.
Samsung always hide specs and general from future releases so it will not surprise me if all those have nothing to do with reality.Its the way sammy do such things,and always wait to release after all the others.
We have to wait until official specs release..

Hmmm is the picture also taken with a white version of the galaxy S4??
Because when you look at the picture carefully, you can see the “reflections” of another device (Below the Galaxy S4 lettering). But for me, this is not the S3, or is it?

imo it looks exactly like S3

If you change the contrast of the picture, you can see, stat there is no led flash light and the camera is to small in porportion to the backcase, so you can see that it is the galaxy note 8. This means that this picture isnt fake, because the galaxy note 8 was just presented today , and this foto is from yesterday 🙂
