Samsung Galaxy S4 to be revealed next February

Rumour mill starts turning on iPhone 5 rival, the Galaxy S4

Samsung will announce its Galaxy S4 smartphone in February at Mobile World Congress.

We've only had the Galaxy S3 for a while and the iPhone 5 was revealed last week but eyes are already turning to Samsung's Galaxy S4. The smartphone and arguably iPhone 5 rival will arrive next February, according to The Korea Times which cites 'company officials and local parts suppliers'.

"Samsung is ready to unveil the next Galaxy smartphone, the Galaxy S4, at early next year's mobile world congress (MWC) in the Spanish city of Barcelona," said an official from the firm asking not to be identified.

The Galaxy S4 already has some possible specifications including a Samsung Exynos processor and a 5in screen, up from 4.8in of the S3. It will also support LTE networks for 4G mobile broadband like the upcoming Galaxy S3 LTE. Android is likely to be the operating system of choice one again.

It was expected that Samsung would reveal the Galaxy S3 at this year's MWC. However, the firm decided to wait until afterwards to hold an Apple-style event solely for the S3 in London.

"Samsung wants to keep its one-year product schedule and the Galaxy S4 will be the first to match that strategy. The S4 will see some external changes but retain its popular rectangular shape with rounded corner concept," said an official from one of Samsung's local partners.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
