A complete set of preliminary specifications and comparison of the Galaxy S4 had leaked out, and surprisingly, the device has only four-core processors unlike the ZTE Nubia Z7 which has eight-cores.

Galaxy S4 is also rumored to have a gesture-based technology for users to flick above the device's screen to scroll pages and home screens without the need for a stylus. It is quite similar to the Air Play of the Galaxy Note 2.
Details of the Galaxy S4 and iPhone 6, seen as potential competitors, have been leaked even though their technical specifications are not yet confirmed and both devices are not yet being sold in the market.
According to the News Tribe, iPhone 6 is expected to have a Smart Rear Camera similar to Sony's 13MP sensor with the awaited flash upgrade, 3D imaging sensor, and a Time for Photographer sensor which enables the device to sense the photographer's face in any memorable capture.
It also indicated that Samsung Galaxy S4 will be bringing something unusual and innovative for the camera function. A report claimed that the device can capture high-quality images even under low-light condition, which could mean that it may have a better camera than iPhone 6.
