Samsung's flagship Galaxy S IV is one of the most highly anticipated smartphones of 2013.

In fact, next to whatever the next iPhone is, the Galaxy S IV is easily the most-anticipated smartphone of the year.

Samsung will likely announce the Galaxy S IV in April or May, about a year after it launched the current Galaxy S III.

However, there are also some rumblings that it could be announced as soon as next month at the Mobile World Congress conference in Barcelona, according to TechCrunch and others.

And as we get closer, the leaks and rumors are beginning to heat up.

Some new details have been revealed after the smartphone's benchmark test results were leaked on SamMobile.

Here's are the latest rumors:

  • Processor: 8-core Exynos 5 Octa clocked at 1.8GHz (That's insanely fast)
  • 5-inch edge-to-edge 440 ppi display that can show full HD video
