Samsung-focussed blog SamMobile has posted an image that the blog
half-heartedly claims is a leaked press shot of the Samsung Galaxy S IV.
blog says it has "received a huge tip from our insider at Samsung" who
has sent them this image of "the next generation of the Galaxy S series,
the Galaxy S IV". The blog goes on to state that it isn't 100%
convinced about the image, but notes that the image of the device, which
looks similar to the Galaxy S III and the Galaxy Premier does not look
like a fake.
While the blog did not receive any information about
specifications or the expected release date, we have plenty of earlier
rumours to fall back upon. The latest one claimed that the Samsung
Galaxy IV may come with a S-pen stylus, as seen in the Galaxy Note
series, as Samsung looks to merge the Galaxy and Note series to come up
with a "mega-flagship".
Other reports have indicated that the
Galaxy S IV will indeed come with a 4.99-inch Super AMOLED display with
1920x1080 resolution, giving it a pixel density of 441ppi. Additionally,
murmurs are that the next Samsung Android flagship will run on Android
Jelly Bean 4.2 and feature a 2GHz quad-core Exynos processor and an
8-core GPU, alongside 2GB RAM. It is likely to be equipped with a
13-megapixel camera rear auto-focus camera and, at 9.2mm, be slightly
thicker than the Galaxy S III.
