Samsung Galaxy S4 To Lack Eye-Scrolling And 8-Core CPU In The US
With Samsung scheduled to unveil the Galaxy S IV tomorrow (Thursday, March 14th) evening, the anticipation couldn’t be higher amongst Android fanatics and even some iOS fans are admittedly curious as to what Apple’s major rival will reveal. While early reports claimed that Samsung’s next-generation Galaxy S smartphone will feature impressive eye-tracking technology and a similar 8-core processor to the one Samsung demonstrated during at this year’s CES (consumer electronics show), a new pre-release report seems to suggests otherwise.
According to Bloomberg, although the Samsung Galaxy S IV may boast eye-tracking capabilities at some point in time, the forthcoming smartphone won’t be equipped with the software required to track users’ eyes at launch, stating that “future versions of the phone” may make use of the technology.
Moreover, Bloomberg’s report also suggests that the Galaxy S IV will be sold in two versions, both of which will differ greatly, one powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 processor, while the other will sport Samsung’s beastly Exynos 5 Octa 8-core chip. Unfortunately, it seems as though the latter will be reserved for international versions of the devices, while the United States models will feature the watered-down Snapdragon alternative, which is likely because of it’s integrated LTE capabilities.
The Galaxy S IV is also said to feature a 4.99-inch 1080P display, 2GB of RAM, wireless charging capabilities and a 13 megapixel rear-facing camera. Stay tuned for complete coverage on what Samsung will inevitably call “the next big thing”.
