I hope that the Samsung GALAXY S IV will have slightly better styling or at least use more upscale materials compared to the current S3, which feels rather cheap.
It sounds to me that while Sony did have a similar idea, Samsung seems to have taken a completely different approach, whereas Sony used the front camera to do gesture control, and Samsung, from what I understand, is taking a different approach that is more user and battery friendly.
The new Samsung GALAXY S 4 is possible to put this screen size in the same body as the S3 if they cut down the bezel…ie the sony xperia zl has a 5” screen in a device smaller than the s3. I really like Samsungs innovation! If only they could combine it with hardware like HTC and a better looking UI like Sense without it being too heavy on the processor! But I’m seriously considering switching to Samsung soon!
The availability of the Galaxy S IV will be in the eastern countries from Europe first. Whole Europe and Asia are expected to receive the Galaxy S IV before the end of April. America, Australia and Africa will receive the Galaxy S IV around May / June.
