The Samsung Galaxy S4 release date is less than two weeks away, and the guys at @evleaks have revealed a picture of the highly-anticipated smartphone. For almost a year, the @evleaks Twitter account only posts pictures of unannounced terminals and, so far, it was 100% accurate. @evleaks has become so popular that all the tech websites are quoting it.
As always we are advising you to take the leaked Samsung Galaxy S4 pictures with a pinch of salt, as we may be looking at a rendering made by a fan who couldn’t wait until the press conference scheduled for March 14th.
According to the photo that leaked prematurely, the Samsung Galaxy S4 adopts the rectangular design of the Galaxy S2. Some will love the new design of the smartphone, while others will want the Galaxy S4 to continue the design language introduced by the SGS3.
Another picture posted by the same Twitter account also reveals a comparison between the design of Samsung Galaxy S4, Galaxy S3, S2, and Galaxy S.
To be honest, the design reminds me of LG Optimus Vu series and what stroke me as unusual is that the physical Home button is missing. The leak also mentions specs like Super AMOLED full HD display, 16/32/64 GB of internal storage, 2 GB of RAM, Android 4.2 and a 13 megapixel camera.
Another wired thing about the alleged Samsung Galaxy S4 photo is that the smartphone seems to have a display that’s way bigger than the one of the Galaxy S3, while all the reports are saying that the new flagship smartphone of the South Korea-based company will come with a 4.99-inch touch panel.
In case you forgot, we remind you that the Samsung Galaxy S4 is expected to arrive with an octo-core processor, the new Exynos 5 Octa unit unveiled by Samsung earlier this year at CES 2013. The Exynos 5 Octa SoC is based on four Cortex A15 cores clocked at 1.8 GHz and four 1.2 GHz Cortex A7 cores that are supposed to improve the battery life when the processor is not working at its full potential.
The rumor mill also says that the US variant of the Galaxy S3 will come with a LTE-friendly quad-core Snapdragon 600 processor clocked at 1.9 GHz and Adreno 320 GPU.
