Is this the Samsung Galaxy S4?

Oh, rumor mill… you never fail us. The folks over at SamMobile have gotten an insider tip, complete with what very well may be a leaked image of the yet-to-be-announced Samsung Galaxy S4.

According to SM:

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.

While the insider didn’t include any specs, the rumored specs that have been floating around her:

  • 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)

What are your thoughts? Be sure to let us know in the comments.

    Throwing this on here from comments I have left on various “ZOMG IS THIS THE IV… articles”

    This looks like a prototype of the S3 or some silly mockup someone made. I don’t think they would be going backwards in terms of design style. Chrome bezel and plan jane body seems much to similar like the S2.

      I agree with you it seems unlikely Samsung would go “retro” by taking cues from the S2, even as I actually prefer the S2’s looks over the S3’s!

      Still, a thinner bezel would be nice.

      The Note 2’s display uses an RGB matrix. Just going off that, I doubt Samsung’s sticking with the pentile matrix.
