Ahead of Galaxy S4 launch, a bunch of new images of the handset have leaped out by way of Chinese site IT168 who managed to score some high res screenshots of the phone. Showing off what looks to be a retailing model, the images give us a pretty good glimpse of the handset. These are photos of the GT-I9502 model (WCDMA + GSM) which will be heading to China with dual SIM card support. Body thickness is measured at 7.7mm and weighs just 136g.
If the rumors hold up, the Galaxy S4 will feature a 5-inch Full HD AMOLED display, an Exynos Octa 5410 CPU, PowerVR SGX 544MP GPU paired with 2GB of RAM and packs 2600 mAh Li-Ion battery. The device can be seen running Android 4.2.1 Jelly Bean. It appears that the sides of the phone are made from aluminum material and the back from a plastic.
The device is tipped to pack a 2.1-megapixel front camera for high definition video calling, an advanced snapper on the rear will boast a 13-megapixel sensor. The camera will ship with a new feature called Samsung Orb aka photosphere. There are still plenty of other features we’re expecting to witness during the S4 launch – S4 Zoom, Eye Tracking, LTE 4G connectivity and lot more.
Last week, a video was also leaked online — showing off not only the device, but also a preview of the latest version of the Android 4.2.1. Don’t forget it to check it out!
Samsung will launch the Galaxy S IV smartphone at Radio City Music Hall in New York’s Times Square today. If you’re keen to watch the event then it will be live streamed at www.youtube.com/SamsungMobile.
This is definitely a phone worth watching out for, by the looks of things – for those who weren’t happy enough with Apple iPhone or other smartphone offerings.
