The upcoming Samsung Galaxy S4 is expected to resemble the Samsung's latest phablet Galaxy Note 2 rather than its predecessor, Samsung Galaxy S3, according to a mobile analyst.
An expert said that Samsung must use an innovative hardware design, when it launches the Galaxy S4 in order to stay ahead of the race.
Mobile devices expert Charles Golvin told tech news website T3 Samsung must continue to innovate in hardware design "in order to maintain success."
He also predicted that the device could introduce front-facing speakers for the first time as Samsung seeks to improve the overall audio quality on the S4.
"Samsung has been at the forefront in terms of specs, and I expect that will continue. It's not clear whether the S4 will carry Samsung's octo-core processor or a Qualcomm quad core, but I expect a combination of processor, 2 GB RAM minimum, and expanded battery to provide high performance with extended battery life," Golvin said.
"The other areas of hardware development will be in the camera, both still and video, a 1080p HD display as well as audio, perhaps with front facing speakers," he quickly added.
Samsung sent a cryptic message hinting the release of the much awaited Samsung Galaxy S4 on March 14. The invite drops clues that the Galaxy S4 is indeed the smartphone that will be unveiled on the unpacked event.
