Samsung Galaxy S IV: What To Expect

Samsung's Galaxy S phones have become the closest thing to the mythical "iPhone killer" of Android fans' dreams. Here's a look at the next version's likely features.

The stylus-equipped Galaxy Note series is a hit, but is the pen a key factor in the phablet's success? If so, then the rumor that the upcoming S IV will also have a stylus--a first for the Galaxy S series--might not seem so far-fetched. Unlike a conventional stylus, such as Samsung's optional C Pen for the Galaxy S III, the S Pen is pressure-sensitive for better accuracy. However, by including a stylus--and its requisite pouch--to the S IV, Samsung runs the risk of adding unwanted bulk to the svelte smartphone's shell. And who wants an ugly Galaxy S?

re: Samsung Galaxy S IV: What To Expect
We're working on making our slideshows more user friendly. We thank you for your continued input, Leo, as well as creating New Year's Resolutions on our behalf. Meanwhile, I'm now having Samsung S IV envy. Later this year, when Apple comes out with whatever new Phone it will have, and once I've had a chance with a BlackBerry 10 device, and we see what else MS Windows Phones come along, it should be an interesting time to get to make my next smartphone selection.
