Samsung may not be planning to show the Galaxy S IV at the MWC this week, but that’s not stopping the info from flowing. A spate of new rumors attempts to detail the phone’s hardware specs, especially when it comes to its screen.
While we had heard that Samsung was producing a 4.99-inch 1080p AMOLED display for the phone, new rumors suggest that production problems have forced the company to scrap that plan, and it will go with a SoLux LCD panel of the same dimensions and resolution, instead.
Additional information attempts to confirm the presence of a Qualcomm Snapdragon 600, which we had heard rumored earlier, running at 1.9GHz. The phone could have a thirteen-megapixel camera, be available with 16GB, 32GB, or 64GB flash, and use 2GB of RAM.
Supposedly the phone will keep the home button Samsung loves so much, but we can’t quite make it out in this new, dark pic, reportedly of the phone booting. The phone is said to be plastic with aluminum edges, have a removable battery, and measure 7.7 millimeters thick. It should initially be available in both black and white.
