Samsung Galaxy S IV rumored to arrive in April with S Pen functionality

Samsung Galaxy S 5

The latest rumor fresh out of South Korea is that Samsung is preparing the Galaxy S IV for an April 2013 launch, and it’s said that the new handset will come with S Pen functionality right out of the box. The same rumor hints that the S 5 will launch with support for the S-Pen, one of the best features of Samsung’s line of Note devices.


Multiple Korean sources are saying that the new phone will land in April, and the accompanying S Pen feature hints that Samsung is allegedly looking to bring some of the best features of their Note series to the flagship Galaxy S IV, which wouldn’t be too terribly surprising, even considering how different the two devices are just from the screen size alone.

It’s rumored that the Galaxy S IV will come with a 5-inch 1080p AMOLED display, a quad-core Exynos 5440 chip, a 13-megapixel rear auto-focus camera, and will feature a slightly thicker 9.2mm body, a change that would make the S IV very Note-like this time around, and would explain the S Pen functionality.

One particularly interesting rumored feature is a laser keyboard dock. In this screen mock up we see our faceless host connects the Galaxy S IV to the dock and then slides his hand across the surface in front of it. The dock then projects a laser keyboard onto the desk and he begins typing away. Needless to say, we want the Galaxy S IV to come with this kind of functionality. 


Of course, this is all just wishful thinking, so don’t take it to mean that Samsung is actually planning these features for the Galaxy S IV.
