I'm thinking regular Exynos 5 Quad for SGS4. I can't imagine this chipset being ready by May/June.

I hope the S4 comes with this:

Or the new Note will look something like this:

Seeing that this technology exists now for 2013, I can't wait to see what 2014 will bring. I am really thinking of buying a new phone this summer off contract.

Until I actually see a released product, I'm not going to hold my breathe. We've already seen live project glass demos and those things aren't going to be on the market for a while. So, I wonder what Samsung's projected timeframe would be to actually have devices like they showed in that mock video. Both devices actually intrigued me a lot.

For all we know it could already be in production. According to Eldar Murtazin on Twitter, Samsung will be finalizing the design for the S4 within the next two weeks. There is still plenty of time. I remember rumors of big.LITTLE months ago, anything is possible.

I'm ok with your reasoning on its own. Blogs praise him, but I don't recall the last time Eldar was right.

As far as I can remember, he was right on several occasions with the S3. I could just be losing my mind too though lol

I agree, I am not going to hold my breathe as well. I remember seeing the videos of the flexible screen a couple years ago from CES. But it is good to know that Samsung is still working on making it happen.

Seems to me if they squared up the corners on the note2 and ran zero orders they could almost get the 6" screen size in the note without increasing the form factor. The borders don't really do anything anyway...

They have the 1080P Amoled displays set to be released in Q1. Interesting no?

LOL you and me both! Starting to get antsy waiting for the new Flagships. Sony's Xperia Z and ZL are both nice, but I know there isn't a chance in hell that Sprint will be carrying them.

Even the original Xperia, I thought was really nice. That's another manufacturer that Sprint hasn't carried in a long time (Similar to how Motorola didn't really have a superphone until the original Photon was announced).

I really wish Sprint would carry a Sony high end phone. Why doesn't Sprint carry them? Is there a reason?

Seems to me that Sony doesn't like producing for the CDMA networks. They tried with the Xperia Play a while ago with Verizon, but that was about it.

Sony had been GSM centric for a number years. A year or two ago, they tried to rescind that distinction and break back into the CDMA market however that seems to have not had the demand they expected? It has been pretty dry.
There is a possibility that Verizon set up some sort of exclusivity deal with Sony to block Sprint when the Xperia Play came out, but I have not found anything to back up that idea.

More likely it is Sprint's call. If they wanted a Sony device to offer then they would/should knock down the doors of Sony until they have an applicable device ready to be offered.

The looming question being, would the demand be there to make it profitable? If it is unsure why would Sprint go for it?


Sidenote: curved and bendable screens make me yawn big time, anyone else? I'd rather not have one on my device honestly. I have yet to see a convincing reason why - and concepts are just that, conceptual and not real (yet or maybe never).
One idea I've come up with, that would actually be useful, would be if Samsung could develop the inside of their now ubiquitous 'flip case/cover' (on the Galaxy S III and Note II) to be a durable display screen. I hate flip cases, but if they had a tangible use besides 'protection' they might have a redeeming quality.

I wouldn't mind checking out a Sony Xperia device, but like everyone has stated already - they only build for GSM providers.

6.3 inch screen being talked about again. I'm so skeptical, but I'm still very curious.

Since the Ascend Mate is 6.1in, I wouldnt be surprised if Samsung goes all out with 6.3 in.

I feel blogs are reaching for news articles to post lately. This is one of "Captain Obvious" posts. What makes anyone think Samsung WOULDN'T use the Octa in their next gen devices? These sites need to just stop with, "We need clicks so I'm gonna make sh!t up posts"...

The Optimus G had so much promise. Bumping the Optimus G2 up to a 5.5 inch screen is cool and all, but they need to stick a much bigger battery in that thing, as well as a SD card slot, to compete with what the Note 2 already brought to the table. And a "fall" launch is way too far away to determine if it'll be the 1st to have Key Lime Pie

LG Optimus G2 launching this fall, possibly with Key Lime Pie? [RUMORS]

The more Sam Mobile posts these "exclusives", the more I think they are just feeding up a big plate of BS.

Lol. I don't hold my breath when comes to any rumor from any site. Time will tell if the rumor was really truth or a lie. But most likely Samsung is working on a GS4. Samsung seems to be good at not letting the cat out of the bag to early.

That would be a potential deciding factor. If this phone doesn't carry any of those things, I'm not even going to give it a second look.

I've no intention of ever buying another Motorola phone. My last being the Photon. I don't like the lack of marketing it didn't receive our the fact Moto abandoned it as quickly as they did.
twospirits, drexappeal and KOLIO like this.

I used to not care about things like marketing,but,in the ANDROID phone game,I've found it to be a good indicator of the level of support the phone will get.

The PHOTON/ATRIX are probably the best examples of a great phone gone bad w/non-existent marketing,over-priced accessories,& FUBAR'ed software/firmware support.
