Last year Samsung unveiled the GALAXY S III a bit late (May 3rd) reason why they’ve made a promise that next year the next GALAXY S series flagship smartphone will be delivered a bit earlier. Now, we have heard rumors about Samsung planning a Samsung Mobile Unpacked event for March 14 or March 22nd, where they could unveil GALAXY S4 and it makes some sense, that if they want the GALAXY S IV on the market before mid-May or June to keep their promise.
What you see in the image above is an alleged Samsung GALAXY S IV GT-I9500 unit. At a closer inspection the image looks genuine because of the smartphone back reflection on the alleged S4 glass and we’ve also looked for any unusual/weird pixels where the Samsung GALAXY S IV GT-I9500 boot logo is, just in case this is a Photoshop hoax, however we havent found any anomalies there.
Nontheless there are ways to fake a boot logo sequence on other devices which means that this might not be a GALAXY S4 prototype/developer unit but something else. We also doubt that Samsung will go back to a square design (GALAXY S II style), unless the phone is in a plastic cover which hides its shape.
According to SamMobile source GALAXY S4 could have the following hardware specifications:
- 4,99″ Full-HD SoLux Display
- Snapdragon 600 1.9 Ghz
- 2 GB RAM
- 16, 32 or 64 GB
- 13 Megapixel
- 140.1 x 71.8 x 7.7mm
- 138 gram
- Home button with touch buttons
- Plastic back with aluminium sides
- Removable battery
- Black / White
As always we advise to take this with a grain of salt as it could be just another hoax.
