As the expectations from the new Samsung Galaxy S4 has increased and the wish list of its fans are ever increasing. Imagine the next Galaxy S4 to be very thin and will also feature the laser keyboard. A recent concept video which has been making rounds shows the S4 to with features which can be described as astounding and light years ahead of most Apple devices.

Looking at the video, one cannot but feel that the Galaxy S4 will be charting the course for the future Smartphones of the century. The Samsung Galaxy S4 will be carrying the burden of the Android platform on its shoulders. Though the details of the Galaxy S4 have not been announced, it is clear that we will be able to see the device in six months.

Already the Galaxy S3 has taken on the iPhone and the net release will have to feature something really revolutionary.

Another rumor which is making the rounds is that the Galaxy S4 will be released in April 2013 and it will have the S Pen or the stylus functionality. The Samsung Galaxy S3 has become the flagship of Samsung and has raced to become one of the most popular smartphone of 2012. All ready six months have elapsed since the launch of the S3 and the talks of a successor have reached feverish pitch. On Friday a new report originating from South Korea details the Galaxy S4 smartphone and informs that the S4 will be released in April 2013.

According to the South Korean website Enuri, Samsung is pulling out the plugs to have a grand release of the Galaxy S4 in April 2013. The Galaxy S4 will be brought in line with the Galaxy Note 2 and will have a stylus which has christened as the S-Pen. The Galaxy S4 features a massive AMOLED 5 inch screen and will also have a Full HD 1080 X 1920 and a resolution of 441 pixels per inch.

The Galaxy S4 will have in its heart an EXYNOS 5440 quad-core processor. The Galaxy S4 would feature a 13 megapixel camera. One aberration in the report was that the Galaxy S4 will have a meatier body with 9.1 mm thickness. The dimensions of the Galaxy S3 are only 8.6 mm thick.

A rumor surfaced on Wednesday from SamMobile which gave the model number of the high end device from Samsung – the Samsung GT-I9500 and GT-I9505. The site reasoned that since the number 4 is considered unlucky in Korea, GT-I9500 could be the Galaxy S4 smartphone.

Finally on Thursday the concept video of the Samsung Galaxy S4 appeared online and there were two exciting feature which caught the attention of the experts – a very thin form factor, an extra large screen and a projected keyboard.

The Galaxy S2 was the first device which featured the Super AMOLED display. The next version of the Galaxy series was the S3 which increased the size of the screen from 4.3 inches to 4.8 inches and the pixel density was increased from 217 to 306 ppi.

As for the Samsung Galaxy S4 to bear the flexible screen, it seems it will be featured in the Galaxy S5. The most likely scenario for the Galaxy S4 will be a 5 inch screen and a 1080p resolution and an incredible 441 ppi which will place it miles ahead of its competitors.

The release date of April seems appropriate since Samsung has skipped the MWC 2012 also and released the Galaxy S3 in a separate event. Therefore it is possible that Samsung will again proceed to release the S4 in a separate event.

However the rumors of the S4 launch at the MWC 2013 has not died down completely. A Samsung representative had hinted that the South Company has something unique for the MWC 2013. Analysts were quick to conclude that it could be the S4. However Samsung quickly rebutted these claims on Twitter.

Another rumor surfaced of some device which was dubbed as ‘Project J’ and the device was slated for a release in April.

The specs of S4 have been a subject of intense speculation.  The Samsung Galaxy S4 will surely feature the Quad Core chips and will be based on the ARM A15 architecture and will be ideal for all the power intensive tasks which a user of present times will load on the device.

There has been another school of thought which suggests that the Samsung Galaxy S4 will have a OCTO Core configuration.  The OCTO Core will involve two sets of innards, A15 chip for the big and complex tasks and A7 chip for the lesser tasks which require lower levels of computing. However the quad core is the most likely chip to be used in the Galaxy S4.

The Galaxy S4 will surely have a chiseled Flash Memory which will be smaller in size but much quicker. Samsung Galaxy S4 battery will be most probably of the same configuration as the Galaxy S3 which features a 2,100mAh battery.

The S Voice from Samsung which has been released as an answer to Apple SIRI is woefully short in features and cannot do much than talk about the weather or something similar. In short it can talk about mundane things. However we can see a better and much more receptive S Voice in Galaxy S4.

Talking about the accessories the Galaxy S3 was launched with a load of accessories such as the C Pen which was a nano version of the S-Pen featured in the Galaxy Note 2. There was also a Dongle for connecting the de vice to Television to stream. However these accessories cost money and it would be terrific if Samsung threw this stuff into the box for the Galaxy S4.

The Samsung Galaxy S4 will surely have the wireless charging option. It must since most of the latest devices which include the Lumia 920 have been shouting themselves hoarse about this feature.

So there we are – The New Samsung Galaxy S4 which will be released in April or March or as a matter of fact any date in the first half of 2013. It will be a device which I would dearly love to have in my hand.
