Speculations have been going on for a while on the possible specs and launch date of the Samsung's next generation Galaxy S4 smartphone, but the latest report suggests that it has a processor superior to its predecessor Galaxy S3. 

Rumours were rife that the upcoming Samsung flagship smartphone would pack a monster Octa-core processor when Samsung unveiled the Octa-core processor at CES (Consumer Electronics Show) 2013 last month, but now a new evidence has surfaced in the media which suggests that the Galaxy S4 will not feature the 8-core processor, but an improved version of the 4-core processor, Cortex A-15 which is superior to its predecessor Galaxy S3's Cortex A9-processor.

An Italian website android.caotic citing a leaked Korean document, claimed that Galaxy S4 would pack a quad-core based Exynos 5440 Cortex A15 processor with 2GHz CPU speed.

Leaked Key Specs of Samsung Galaxy S4 Include:
