Samsung has planned to add Galaxy S IV features in Galaxy S III with an update most probably.
Today Samsung took the clothes off its next Galaxy S Flagship and demoed tons of new features that the Korean company has added to its new flagship. The Korean company unveiled its new Flagship at Times Square New York. This new Flagship of Samsung, Galaxy S IV is packed with a large display of 5-inch Super AMOLED Display, 441ppi, 1080p display, 2GB of RAM, and much more. In short we can say that the leaked specifications were correct about Galaxy S IV. Every specification details by Samsung on this media event matches the leaked specifications prior to official announcement.
The only specification that contradicted is of the Android OS. The leaked version of Android OS in Galaxy S IV pointed out towards OS 4.2.1, where as Galaxy S IV will be packed with OS 4.2.2 that will be packed with all the amazing features that Samsung demoed today. However, the good news is that Samsung has planned to port these features into its preceding Flagship of Galaxy S III with a software update.
The confirmation report comes from PCMag who were able to speak with Nick DiCarlo, Samsung’s vice president of portfolio planning, at the event. According to DiCarlo, many of the software improvements made in Galaxy S IV could arrive in existing Galaxy S III phones.
“Anything that we can do that’s not dependent on hardware like infrared, we’ll definitely bring to all the flagship devices,” he said.
The features that we should expect to arrive in Galaxy S III with software are Samsung Smart Scroll, Samsung Smart Pause, Air Gesture, Air View, Group Play, Powerful camera experience like effects, and few more things that will be built in OS 4.2.2.
This is good news and a bad news as well. This a good news for Samsung Galaxy S III owners that they will get all these features without buying the new version and Bad news or decision made by Samsung because people will not buy Galaxy S IV, instead they will go for Galaxy S III. Therefore, Samsung will pull back some Android OS 4.2.2 Galaxy S IV features and will not include them for Galaxy S III. If they provide all the features in Galaxy S III as of Galaxy S IV, then they will lose the market share for sure.
