While the current year hasn't quite finished giving us shiny new toys to play with, reports are already surfacing about what could be the next big flagship phone for Samsung: the Galaxy S4. The latest report indicates that the Galaxy S4 could be coming with an incredible 13-megapixel camera.
The report comes from the people over at SamsungUpdates, who seems to have spotted the module for a 13-megapixel camera online. Apparently, the camera was meant to be a part of the Galaxy S3 and/or the Galaxy Note 2, but both those handsets feature an 8-megapixel rear-facing camera so it could be slated to appear in the Galaxy S4.
The camera is 8.5X8.5X5.9mm in size and will take pictures with a whopping 4208X3120 resolution.
A report surfaced earlier this year that Samsung was set to show off the Galaxy S4 at the 2013 Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, but Samsung was quick to dismiss the report as simple rumor.
But other reports do indicate that whenever it is revealed, the next Samsung handset could be a beast.
Samsung-centered website SamMobile received an anonymous picture showcasing some prototype smartphones that seem to be sporting 3GB RAM. That's a whole lot of RAM, and one can only wonder what new features require so much computing power.
Samsung recently also started mass production of 128GB memory chips for use in future phones and tablets.
Could these all be adding up to a 128GB, 3GB RAM Galaxy S4 with a 13-megapixel camera? We'll have to wait for Samsung to give us concrete details, but what do you think?
