Are SmartPhone Specs Peaking?

With the new Samsung S4 coming out tomorrow? Is it just a notch upgrade spec-wise? Sure, there will be the quad-core CPU, upgraded camera, more RAM, etc., but its at the point where do you need all that power? I can see upgrading for the camera but that’s about it. I’m fine with my S3 specs and it never runs out of horsepower. Apple has the same situation with the iPhone 5. The specs are insane at this point. Do you really need all that power now? Do people run 4 apps at a time to take advantage of the multi-cores? Are phone apps even multi-threaded? Do consumers care at this point? Right now and into the future, its not about horsepower anymore. Its about the SOFTWARE.
