Samsung’s long-awaited Galaxy S IV (GT-I9500) super-phone will most likely be the company’s big announcement on March 14th in New York City. With months of hype in the leading up to it’s introduction, speculations of what components will be featured in the device have been in the forefront of tech conversations nation-wide.
A new piece of information comes from the perpetually-on point Samsung rumor blog, SamMobile. On Thursday, the site reports that the Korean company’s flagship will be made available in six variants at launch. They are as followed: 16GB in white and in black, 32GB in white and in black, 64GB in white and in black.
Also, the blog’s inside source said that unfortunately the Galaxy S IV is not likely to pack the new ARM and Samsung collaborative Exynos 5 Octa processing chip as expected. Aside from a early mockup version of the phone to be distributed to retailers, Samsung is apparently shooting for the Galaxy S IV to use LTE and 3G, hinting towards the use of a Snapdragon 600 processor. The Exynos chip isn’t completely out of the question however — it would just require an additional, separate LTE chip.
The blog points out that like other Samsung devices, the Galaxy S IV is expected to be equipped with a micro-SD card, meaning that the storage space in each of the phone variants can be bumped up to 64GB.
With two weeks before the big event, we’re expecting rumors around the Galaxy S IV to continue flooding in. We’ll keep you in the loop.
