Samsung’s Next big thing is the Samsung Galaxy S4. Even before the launch the specs were already leaked but there were still confusions regarding the processor. The handset will directly compete with the Apple iPhone 5.

The Samsung Galaxy S4 is powered by 2x quad core processors. Some call it Octa core while some simply refer to as two quad cores. There were rumors about the core, will it be the quad core or the Octa core (8 core), well both the rumors are true. There are two versions the quad core version @ 1.9GHz and the eight core (Octa core) at 1.6GHz.

The handset runs on the Jelly Bean 4.2 OS with TouchWiz user interface as on the Galaxy S4. The PenTile Super AMOLED HD screen is 5 inches with 1080p resolution (441 ppi). Now what is this PenTile? It’s a Samsung patented screen technology that brings out the best HD resolution / clarity / colors on AMOLED screen. It also consumes minimal power thereby given excellent output at the same time increasing the battery life. You can read more about PenTile here.
