new rumor that the S4 will have 5G WiFi (802.11ac). Samsung will use Broadcom's BCM4335 combo chip which provides 802.11ac, bluetooth 4.0, and a FM radio.

not so hard to believe, thin foldable display so you can still use phone as a phone but open up and you get a 7 inch dual display.

why not? esp considering apple has nothing in display technologies like this.

S4 is the big news for 2013.

What I hope to see:
1. Same overall size as last year, but hopefully they dump the physical home button for onscreen virtual AND programmable buttons (much like we already have in AOKP rom's.)
2. 440+ PPI super HD screen technology
3. Octo-core Exynos 5 processor
4. No 16gb models. Start at 32gb, up to 128gb.
5. Key Lime Pie
6. World phone
7. Wireless charging out of the box

I would say Key Lime Pie has 0% chance of coming with the S4.

And is the octo-core thing for real? It's ready for prime time?

I'd have to agree with everything except for KeyLime Pie and the Octo-Core. The earliest I think we could see KLP is at Google's I/O for developers which starts May 15th. The S4 should be released in some parts of the world by then and just hitting the shelves in the US. As for the Octo-Core, is it really necessary at this time (is it, I really don't know). Is there any software that could actually utilize more than 4 cores at the moment?

Other than that I'm excited for the screen, storage, and definitely the wireless charging.

Samsung's Octa chip is based on ARM's big.LITTLE architecture...4 A7 chips and 4 A15 chips. For simple tasks the A7 chips are used while the A15 chips are turned off. Vice versa for games and other intensive apps, the A15 chips are turned on while the A7 chips are turned off. So despite having 8 cores, only 4 are used at any given time.
