Seven days. That’s how much longer the world will have to wait to see Samsung’s Galaxy S IV (GS4). With the follow-up to the world's most popular phone close at hand, the rumor mill is as alive as ever. The occasional leaks have given smart-phone enthusiasts hope and, possibly, a small glimpse of what will arrive on March 14. 

It’s important to note that even the most reputable leaks are still rumors. No mock ups, sketches, or drawings of the GS4 have been revealed. So, to save you the time and trouble of finding each tiny rumor, here is a list of what Samsung is expected to unpack.

Screen size

One of the first whispers out of the rumor mill is that the GS4 will carry a plus-sized screen. Huffington Post’s Jason Gilbert writes that the GS4 will come packing a five-inch screen. This will make it one of the biggest phones on the market, once again dwarfing the iPhone. The GS4 is also expected to come with a full HD resolution (1920x1080) or 440 pixels per inch.

Faster

With the GS3, Samsung provided a 1.4GHz quad-core processor. The GS4 will definitely see an upgrade on its processor but the question comes down to how much of an upgrade.  GSM Israel, an Israeli blog that is claiming to have screenshots of the still-under-wraps phone, published that the GS4 will carry a 1.8GHz quad-core processor.
