    We have another monster-mashup of rumors for the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S IV. We'll just make it easy and break them down bullet-point style!

    1. The new SGS4 will have a 4.99-inch 440ppi Full HD Super AMOLED display - this new display panel will use hexagonal and diamond-shaped pixel layouts, instead of the typical squares. This will pack more pixels into the display. This new layout will eventually allow Samsung to stretch smaller screens beyond the 440ppi level as well. ~ TechCrunch
    2. Our next rumor suggests that the official launch timeframe of the new SGS4 will officially launch in March. This coincides with some previous rumors suggesting this possibility. ~ UnWiredView
    3. The final bit of intel we have to share this morning is supposedly the final pictured version of the new SGS4. As you can see above, it is compared to an SGS3, and is slightly larger. It also has an April 22 date on it, which you could infer discredits the previous rumor of a March release. Then again, perhaps the end of March is when we will see the product officially unveiled, and then its ship date might be April 22nd. Of course, it could also just be a fake, so who knows? ~ BGR
    Regardless of which rumors turn out to be accurate, it sure is exciting to follow. For anyone looking to upgrade this year, It will be a tough choice between all of the amazing phones coming out. What devices are you most looking forward to?

    They shouldn't try to be apple; the "retina" display is just a buzzword and if I remember correctly, it's been proven that above 400ppi you can't see the difference at a reasonable distance.
    Apple just use that to impress the people that are going to buy the iPhone because of stuff like that.

    I think at Apple's 326 ppi and screen size you can't discern individual pixels beyond 18". I would guess most people hold their phone approx. 12" from their eyes.

    Personally I think the resolution is overkill. I'm unlikely to ever view much video content on my phone - that's what laptops, tablets and tv's are for.

    I thought the s3 was big enough. Seems as though the higher end phones are going to be getting to the 5in mark with each new generation, guess it's something the public will have to get used to.

    Indeed. The Z/ZL is still king in my book for now. Sucks Samsung had to go on the defensive design-wise because of Apple as the S2 was the sexiest piece of hardware they had dropped. It seems like the S4 is somewhat of a progression back that way, but still not as clean and clever.

    5" is tolerable if they virtually eliminate the bezel. Otherwise it's like I still actually talk on my phone, and I don't want to hold a brick next to my ear.
