Infographic: A Quick Peek at Samsung’s Galaxy SIV

March 16, 2013 - Written By Brandon Wann

With the release of the Galaxy S IV already passed, we’re comfortably settling in our chairs trying to absorb all the information that we have soaked in.  There’s a lot more to this outstanding smartphone than merely having a heavy software upgrade.

On top of all the new software features added is the hardware, which has already been discussed thoroughly until our minds bled excess information. If you’ve read about the in-depth dissection of the smartphone, then you probably missed out on the surface details, which this infographic, supplied by Samsung Tomorrow, will detail.

In a general sense, the features are comparable to the many other smartphones available in this year’s market.  This includes the HTC One, the LG Optimus G Pro and a few other smartphones we saw here and there over the past few months.

However, Samsung decided that, instead of following the crowd they created towards bigger displays, that a 5 inch display is their sweet spot for this device.  This could also be due to the fact that their Galaxy Note II already has a 5.5 inch display, and wouldn’t want to step on their own toes in that category.  And rightfully so, as their Galaxy S III already has a nice sizable display of 4.8 inches, which is enough for most people as it is.

As you can see from the image shown below, a quad-core processor clocked at 1.9 GHz is mentioned, which at the time of the posting of this infographic, could have been an unofficial confirmation of the several unconfirmed rumors about the use of Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 600 for some markets.  When Samsung says some markets, they most likely mean the US.

However, with today’s confirmation from Qualcomm about the usage of their Snapdragon 600 in the Galaxy S IV, we now know what to believe.  While the Snapdragon 600 is a fine chipset that HTC has proven already with their latest release, some often wonder why Samsung couldn’t instead opt for Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 800.

It is most likely due to the fact that even though more power is very delectable, the hardware in its current state is already at its prime, and that today’s current software needs to first catch up, which could take a couple years with the rate of pace that Android is moving.  In any case, no matter what the visceral implementation is, we can trust that this smartphone will perform just as well as any other premium smartphone out there.
