Over the last month we have heard a few rumors about the Samsung Galaxy S IV. It is expected to have a new quad-core Exynos chip based on the ARM Cortex A15 architecture, 2GB of RAM, a 5-inch 1080p Super AMOLED display and a 13-megapixel camera. Today, SamMobile has also reconfirmed this very rumor and says that Samsung is prepping for a Galaxy S IV launch in April 2013 under a codename of Project J.

Now this is not the first time we have heard about the Galaxy S IV and the features that are rumored are quite possible as we are already seeing smartphones with similar features. Previously, it was reported that Samsung would unveil its 1080p Super AMOLED displays at CES 2013, so a Galaxy S IV with a non-1080p panel would be rather perplexing.

Additionally the report claims Samsung may launch a cheaper variant of the Galaxy Note II that will not have the S-Pen stylus and it will also drop the AMOLED panel and will have a slower CPU. Also Read - Samsung Galaxy Chromebook Go powered by Intel Jasper Lake Celeron processor revealed
This could be an attempt on Samsung’s part to gain a better footing with its phablet at a lower price point as it is already proving to be a winning concept. While Samsung might be able to get a lower price, it is rather difficult to imagine a Galaxy Note device without a stylus. But then stranger things have happened in the past, especially when one company tries to dominate an entire product segment.
