Earlier reports have suggested that Samsung’s (005930) upcoming Galaxy S IV smartphone may support futuristic non-touch gesture technology. SamMobile, which has provided us with accurate Samsung-related rumors in the past, confirmed on Friday that the company will indeed be using the technology in its latest flagship device. It also claims that Samsung will be using a new kind of AMOLED display, called “green PHOLED,” that will be 25% more efficient than older Super AMOLED technologies and will help the Galaxy S IV deliver better battery life despite the use of a full HD resolution.
The Galaxy S IV is expected to be equipped with a 4.99-inch full HD display and feature either an eight-core Exynos 5 Octa processor or quad-core Snapdragon 600 CPU depending on region. The device is also said to include 2GB of RAM, NFC, LTE connectivity, wireless charging capabilities, a micro SD slot and a 13-megapixel camera with a new photo feature similar to Google’s (GOOG) Photosphere software, reportedly called Samsung Orb.
Samsung is scheduled to unveil the Galaxy S IV at a press event on March 14th — BGR will be on hand to bring you the news as it breaks.
