Latest Samsung Galaxy S IV rumors suggest a slightly smaller Galaxy Note

We saw the Galaxy S IV concept video that surfaced yesterday, but the truth of the matter is that details for the handset are still rumored and unconfirmed at this point in time. Nonetheless, it seems that based on previous history with the Galaxy S line, there are some likely assumptions that can be made in terms of specs (compared to the Galaxy S III).

That being said though, this latest round of Galaxy S IV rumors seem to be suggesting that the handset will be arriving as a slightly smaller Galaxy Note. In other words, a handset with support for the S Pen. These rumors are coming by way of the Korean language enuri.com website. The specs are said to include Jelly Bean along with a 5-inch 1080p display, quad-core Exynos 5440 processor, 9.2mm thickness and a 13 megapixel rear-facing camera with auto-focus.

Assuming the Galaxy S IV does arrive with S Pen support, this would imply that Samsung would be merging the Galaxy S and the Galaxy Note lines. The question would be why. So far it seems that people either love or hate the S Pen and given that, it almost seems to make more sense keeping the S Pen just in the Note line. But hey, we cannot speak for Samsung.

The 5-inch display seems to make sense though. Well, at least based on what we are seeing from other manufacturers. Otherwise, aside from some specs, this round of rumors are calling for an April announcement. So how about it, is anyone excited about the possibility of a Galaxy S IV with an S Pen? Or should the S Pen be left as a feature found only in the Note lineup?

    The S-Pen is such a great tool to have, once you have it, you can’t go back. It’s not just any old stylus, it has a heap more functionality. I have the S3 at the moment and I hope Sammy include the S-Pen with the S4. If it does I wont hesitate to switch but if not I may stick with my S3.

      I don’t mind S Pen, it would be more useful with on-screen keys so we don’t have to use fingers

    Awesome news. I was going actually replace my S3 with a Note 2 due to the awesomeness of the stylus capabilities. Ok maybe not so awesome news cause now I have to wait till next year.

    Underwhelming, instead of a rush towards bigger or faster phones let’s get some creativity. I hope the Moto X does something radically different.

    I think the S pen is cool but should be kept seperate in the Note line. Galaxy S3 is a pretty thin phone and adding the pen would have to make it a bit thicker
