It is a few hours to the official launch of the most anticipated smartphone of 2013, Samsung’s Galaxy S IV. Samsung has been tight and there haven’t been many clear leaks in the run up to the big launch tonight. Only yesterday, it teased a dark image of what we’re made to believe is “The Next Big Thing”. Before that there have been rumours and counter rumours of what the new flagship will pack. A few days ago, perceived images of the Galaxy S IV surfaced in a Chinese forum and a few hours ago, more have emerged.
With hours remaining before the Samsung Unpacked event kicks off at the Radio City Music Hall in New York City, 19 photos believed to be of the dual SIM variant of the Galaxy S IV have leaked in another Chinese forum. While these are just leaks, there’s a high possibility the device we’ll see announced tonight will be more or less the same.
The images confirm these so far:
- The device will run Android 4.2 with TouchWiz
- 4.99 inch display
- It will pack an Exynos 5410 1.8GHz Octa-core processor
- PowerVR SGX 544MP3 GPU
- 2GB RAM
- 16GB internal memory
- 2600mAh battery
- Smart Scroll
- Smart Pause
- Air View that supports fingers instead of the S Pen.
- The images also confirm the measurements of the device as 140.1 x 71.8 x 7.7 mm
- The device will weigh 138g
The invite to the NYC event had some black spots raising speculation that the Galaxy S IV will most likely have a dotted back. That is clearly the case as seen in the leaked images.
As we await the official launch tonight, here’s what’s out so far (Remember these are just leaks, anything can come out tonight but you never know, this could be what you’re expecting).
