Samsung Galaxy S4 Coming Soon With Android 4.2 Jelly Bean, TouchWIZ UI?
Rumors about the upcoming smartphone from Samsung, Galaxy S4, have been surfacing every now and then with different kinds of information. However, the latest rumor puts most of the earlier rumors aside and brings some news for Samsung fans.
The recently leaked image of Galaxy S4 comes with the device's specifications also. According to the image the latest product of Samsung's Galaxy series will run on Android 4.2 Jelly Bean.
This information brings earlier talks about the smartphone's operating system to an end. Earlier, different reports were suggesting that Galaxy S4 may come with Android 5.0 which is rumored to be named 'Key Lime Pie.'
Other reports were indicating towards Samsung changing its strategy and moving away from Android, and bringing an open source operating system 'Tizen' for Galaxy S4.
Going by the render released by Android Community, it looks like Galaxy S4 will come packed in a metal body with front speakers. The speakers part look little unreal as Samsung has always preferred to bring out devices with rear speakers.
One more important point to be noticed in the leaked image is that Samsung will not give a physical button in Galaxy S4.
With the release of Exynos 5 Octa many people were speculating that Samsung's new product in Galaxy series will be powered by Exynos 5 Octa, however, the render shows that the phone will be powered by Exynos 5450 quad-core processor.
The phone will come with a 5-inch 1080 pixel full HD Super AMOLED display, which will be protected with Corning's latest product Gorilla Glass 3.
Corning released Gorilla Glass 3 at the recently held International CES in Las Vegas last month.
