 More than a few developers have worked to make web browsing and app use in Android as clean and ad-free as possible, but it seems their efforts haven’t made them any fans at Google.

More details on the specs of the upcoming Samsung S4 Galaxy

5-inch, 1080p display making it the world's largest high res display for a phone. 
May include a 13-megapixel rear camera, a 2.1-megapixel front camera and 2 GB of RAM, as reported by both SamMobile and Storage capacities could start at 16 GB, and go all the way up to 64 GB.
The processor was once thought to be the Exynos 5 octa-core chipset, but overheating issues have come to the forefront and now the U.S. might be getting a quad-core Qualcomm chip, and European markets getting the Exynos 5.

The Galaxy S4 will likely run Android 4.2.
