Samsung Galaxy S IV image leaks along with some specs

A recently leaked image claims to be that of the upcoming Galaxy S IV. The image is coming by way of the folks at SamMobile who claim to have received the image by way of an insider at Samsung. As you can see, the image appears to be a picture of a render that someone then snapped a picture of. Regardless, the image is clear enough to get a look and assuming this is the real deal, it does reveal at least one interesting tidbit.

Aside from the clean lines and the nicely rounded corners, Galaxy S users will likely notice that one thing is missing -- the home button on the bottom. The bezel also seems to be on the narrow side, that is, at least compared to what we currently see with the Galaxy S III. Otherwise, it appears as if you can make out the power button on the right-hand side along with the volume rockers on the left-hand side. The front-facing camera is also present.

Which brings us to the next point here, the specs. That front-facing camera is expected to be 2 megapixel. Other rumored specs include the handset having a 13 megapixel rear-facing camera, 2GB of RAM and a quad-core 2.0GHz Exynos 5450 processor. The handset is expected to arrive running Android 4.2.1 Jelly Bean at launch and with a 4.99-inch display. Diving a bit further in on the display and it should be a Super AMOLED with a Full HD resolution of 1920 x 1080.

Remember though, at this point in time, this is nothing more than a leaked image. And while it seems like it could be the real deal, we remain skeptikal. Of course, as it always has to be, nothing is official until we see an announcement and images come direct from Samsung. All said and done, we do sort of hope to see Samsung remove that home button though.

    This is obviously fake. This phone looks more along the design of the Galaxy S2 rather than the S3. Samsung would never do that considering how Apple sued them for the design of the S2 being very much like the iPhone. C’mon Android Community, you are better than this.

      It looks nothing like an S2 and exactly like an S3 but without the Home button and with a smaller bezel. Personally I like the home button but just wish it wasn’t so close to the bottom of the phone on the S3.
      I suspect this is a fake only because none of the previous versions have looked so similar to each other as this does to the S3.

        S2 owner here and I say it looks like the S2. The rounded corners have a larger radius.

        Yep, this looks more like an S2 re-model. The top and bottom of the phone appear flat, whereas the S3′s are slightly curved. I hope this is fake because I love the physical home button. One of the reasons I choose Galaxies over others. Besides that, this is absolutely fake. There is a flash from a camera but no reflection of a person/camera.

    I wish. Samsung finally ditching the home button would be nice.

    If it’s only 4.2.1 by the time the S IV comes out i would be disappointed. It took Samsung some time to give 4.1.2 to the public on the phone that can use it, but if Google isn’t rolling out 4.3 or 4.4 or even 4.5/5.0 by the time then guess you and I would have to deal with it.
