    Rumour: Galaxy S4 will include S-Pen functionality

    We‘re still in the midst of silly season, and so continue the slew of rumoured devices and future launches. What we know from the rumours about the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S4 so far is that we‘ll be looking at an Exynos 5440 quad-core processor, with a 5 inch full 1080p HD display. Also, it will be sporting a 13 MP rear facing camera with a body about 9.2mm thick. We have also heard that it will release in April 2013.

    The latest rumour to fly around is that the S4 will include an S-Pen with beefed up features. This certainly seems to be possible since the body thickness will increase, making it possible to accommodate the touch sensitive pen.

    If true, this would be a very interesting move from Samsung. Even though the screen will be larger than on the S3, the dimensions of the device won‘t be excessively larger. When reviewing the Galaxy Note II we stated that the device is brilliant but the size might be a turnoff for many. Also, we thought if the same functionality came in the size of the S3, it would almost be the perfect device. Is this what Samsung are doing with the new generation S4?

    Would the inclusion of the S-Pen to the flagship S-range from Samsung make it more or less attractive? Let us know your thoughts below.
