Samsung Galaxy S4 to feature SwiftKey predictive keyboard?

I predict a riot...

The latest rumour surrounding the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S4 suggests the phone will have built-in SwiftKey prediction software

Samsung's Galaxy S4 handset is to be announced tonight at an exclusive event in New York and the rumours are coming thick and fast ahead of the official reveal.

According to the Wall Street Journal, Samsung's next offering will have SwiftKey prediction software built into the handset. The software builds a predictive Android keyboard that anticipates what you're typing.

The inclusion of such software shouldn't really come as a surprise as Samsung is likely to throw everything but the kitchen sink into the new device.

"In the Android space where you have a lot of competition, a little thing like [predictive typing] can make a huge difference," Rob Enderle, principal analyst at Enderle Group told the WSJ.

Either way, we don't have long to wait to find out about all the juicy features Sammy has lined up for the new handset. Remember to keep locked to our live blog of the Samsung Galaxy S4 event tonight for up-to-the-minute news.
