It seems Samsung is having tough time to keep a lid on its upcoming version of the smartphone from the most popular Galaxy S series. We’ve seen a lots of leaks and heard rumors about the most awaited Samsung Galaxy S IV handset over the past few months. Its rumor mill is in motion. Many of the reliable sources have already suggested that the Galaxy S IV will have a quad-core processor from Qualcomm company. Recently, we’ve reported that the Verizon (SCH-I545) and Korean (SHV-E300S) versions of the Galaxy S IV handsets have been benchmarked with 1.9 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon quad-core processor accompanied with a Adreno 320 Graphics Processor unit.
But today, a new leak from a Italian website is suggesting that Galaxy S IV will utilize Samsung’s own Exynos processor under its hood. A new purported roadmap of the Samsung has been posted by android.caotic.it, and this time it’s the Exynos processor of the device that’s getting shown off. The devices has been listed with Exynos 5440 CPU clocked at 1.4GHz. The device has been also attached with a model number GT-I9500.
Finally, the specs are remaining consistent which include a larger 5-inch 5-inch full HD touchscreen, 2GB of RAM, and Android 4.2 Jelly Bean OS. More over, the leak also mentioned that Galaxy S IV will be unveiled in the month of March, 2013, which seems to line up with previous rumors. You might already know that Galaxy S IV will be made official at Samsung Mobile Unpacked event on March 15th, and it will hit the stores sometime in April.
Word has it that (according a Korean media has) Galaxy S IV will ship with a Qi wireless charging module, and it will be also made compatible with third-party Qi chargers.
So, what do you think, folks? Exynos or Qualcomm? You probably shouldn’t be surprised if Samsung introduces the Galaxy S IV with an Exynos processor. But, we also suggest you take the alleged Samsung roadmap (pictured above) with a grain of salt.
