EXCLUSIVE: Samsung Galaxy S IV leaked press release shots?

    We of SamMobile just received a huge tip from our insider at Samsung and according to him this is the next generation of the Galaxy S series, the Galaxy S IV. We can’t 100% confirm if this is indeed the Galaxy S IV but the picture he sent us looks really sharp and doesn’t look fake at all. The design of the device looks also very similar to the design of the Galaxy S III and the Galaxy Premier, which makes this picture more authentic.

    By looking at the picture of the device we observed a few things, the device will use on-screen buttons as there is no home-button present on the device (Finally), the bezel around the device is much thinner and the device features a large display.

    We didn’t get any confirmation on the specifications of the Galaxy S IV but the rumoured specifications are listed below:
    – Exynos 5450 Quad-Core CPU clocked at 2.0GHz
    – Mali-T658 GPU
    – 2GB of RAM
    – 4.99” SuperAMOLED FULL HD resolution (1080×1920) Display
    – 13 Megapixel Rear Facing Camera
    – 2 Megapixel Front Facing Camera
    – Android 4.2.1 (Out of the box)

    Reaction SamMobile:
    – Source claimed to have more pictures.
    – It’s hard to believe.
    – Mix between Galaxy S III / Galaxy Premier could make this render (press photo) looks real.
    – Before the official presentation by Samsung is nothing 100% sure.

    UPDATE.
    A Korean member (tlagusgh3962) of SamMobile just posted an image of Samsung Mobile Unpacked 2013 invitation. The Picture indicates that the Unpacked event will take place in Pyeongchang, Korea. This is also the place where the Olympic winter games will be held in 2018. Samsung to hold the Galaxy S IV press event at March 4 2013. We expect Samsung to hold Mobile Unpacked event 2013 in more than one country and not just Korea. SamMobile reported that Samsung will begin training sessions of Employees in April, this could mean that the device itself will come in early April.  This is just a photo of course, but we requested SamMobile member for more details. (Slogan doesn’t look that legit.)

    • it looks nice, it maybe fake because the volume rocker is too low, but has a beautiful design, very own of samsung

    • If it doesnt have ne physical home button thn why the while bottom could as well use the complete display...

    • I would be greatly disappointed if this were the final design. The major characteristics of my dream S4;

      1) Same form factor as the S2.
      2) Add a 5.x" Super AMOLED HD screen
      3) Add a Exynos 5 processor
      4) Add 2 GB of RAM
      5) Leave the home button intact (give it enough room so that it doesn't appear as an after thought like on the S3)
      6) JellyBean 4.2 with TW
      7) Connectivity - LTE, HSPA+, GPS (et cetera)

      I did not get the S3 coz 'it's too curvaceous' for my taste and the PenTile display - boo hoo.

    • @xhustler
      umm...your list are actually more suitable for the upcoming Note III no? Plus if Samsung goes any larger for the S IV's scr, they may have to kill off the Note line which is something near impossible to do imo.

      Another dilemma is; even if said specs are 50% true I'd be wary of picking up an Exynos kit until Samsung fully deliver on their promise to fully open source the SoC (or the whole Exynos gen) to devs.

    • This picture looks real but the phone sucks.

      SAME old fashioned buttons, old fashioned design... come on SAMSUNG, wake up.. you know we liked s3, Note 2 but doesnt mean that we need the same thing all the time....

      you should come up with some new technology, feather touch buttons across the phone, on/off button, camera button, volume button, back, menu buttton.. etc. Matte screen so that no finger prints to fall, yet the brightest and clean screen, more bold design... s3 is very very delicate and a femenine design. Some thing to protect the bumper of the phone and lastly .... please come out of the plastic/fiber design... we need a better look better phone... trust me.

      With the price we are ready to pay, we expect more.

      Software wise... i expect a drag and drop functionality... from one multi window to the other. E.g. dragging one image from the gallery menu to the email if i am multitasking at the same time. i would hate to go to gallery, hit on share button, then look for email and then send it as an email. This is long process... you have multi window feature, why not drag the image on the email... this is just an example and i am sure many more benefits of this function.

      Thanks.. i hope this feedbacks reaches samsung.

    • why another 4.99" screen...?

      Screens already closer to that size...

      s3- 4.8"
      Note 1- 5"
      Note 2- 5.3"

      A, 5.8" screen would make sence... as we already have many tablets out with 7" and they are very uncomfortable in handling. As a smart phone, i would prefer a phone to stay as a phone .... yet with the best features and a very good handling. s3, note 1 and 2 are phone to get dropped quite often ... and with delicate design... it hurts a lot when it falls down. :( .... nokia is hardcore... it can withstand a better drop test... and ofcourse (Crappy Iphone too) :(

      please please please .... come up with the best.... we looove samsung... dont fall down in our eyes or let make us think for someother option...

      Up grade wise.... i expect that all the countries should receive the updates at the same time.. its very disappointing to wait when one country get the update and other doesnt... some of us are surely scared to do a flash ..... may b because of the warranty ... or the fear of the making the fone dead... so this should be seriously considered.

      Thanks again and please work around these things...

    • 100% Fake! it took me a few seconds to work out this is indeed a very neatly drawn picture of a phone with black reflective paper stuck down as the screen and hence the reflection of camera flash. if you zoom in you can actually see the background is not only same color as the phone but same texture.
