Samsung Galaxy S IV rendering offers metal vision for 2013

The latest Galaxy S IV render has surfaced and what can we say, it looks rather interesting. This time around we are seeing some specs as well as getting a look at the handset from a few angles. The specs have been seen before and appear to include the full run down such as the 5-inch 1080p display, Exynos 5450 processor and Android 4.2 Jelly Bean.

Interestingly enough, this render appears to show the Galaxy S IV as being metal and with front-facing speakers. The usual sensors seem to all be in place, not to mention the charging port and front-facing camera. The front-facing speakers look decent and just for comparison sake, the Galaxy S III has the speaker on the rear. Other points of the render include the handset as having a dedicated camera button (which would be nice to see) as well as a lock button and volume rocker.

Coincidentally, while this render doesn't match up with the previously leaked press render, it does follow the patten of having the volume rocker moved to the opposite side of the handset. If we had to venture a guess, the previous render seems a bit more believable. On the flip side though, this render is probably more of what we would like to see announced.

Otherwise, you can see the full spec list in the above image and from what we are reading -- aside from a difference in the battery size, the remaining goodies seem to mirror the earlier rumors. The Galaxy S IV was previously said to have a 2600 mAh battery while this list has the battery as being a Galaxy Note II matching 3100 mAh. Again, if we had to pick, the 3100 mAh battery would be much nicer. So how about it, anyone think this is what Samsung plans to announce, or will this end up being just another render made by those who are dreaming?

    Looks like crap

      I thought the same thing when I saw your face

    I think it looks great. However this has been out for at least 2 months. Here is the full image. http://goo.gl/eVIHe

    So this phone is going to use Bluetooth v5.0 … The rendering is pretty cool though.

    • Justin Winker

      Ironic part: Bluetooth v5.0 hasn’t been unveiled, or at least, I couldn’t find anything on Google about it.

      • redthunda69

        That’s not ironic.

      • Justin Winker

        I thought it was. If it’s going to come with BT 5.0, it’s not going to be released for at least another year or two, especially since the protocols haven’t even been released or announced yet.

      • redthunda69

        That’s still not ironic.

    I have to say if this isn’t the GSIV I’ll be highly disappointed…This has to be the best design yet even if it is just a render!

    This looks fantastic.

  • Justin Winker

    I like this. I despise the current plasticky look (and of course, TouchWiz’s Nature UX), but if this comes out to be an accurate render, I might think about dropping my plans of getting the Moto X phone and get this (but probably not).

    dual speakers on the same side does not compute

    • Brian Parkerson

      Sure it does. Like the Nexus 10, the addition of speaker ports insures sound won’t be hindered by holding the device in a way that may cover one of the ports. If nothing else, it looks bad ass!

        the stereo sound i guess would sound nicer if one were to be on bottom other on top.. but thats just a guess

  • Android_California

    SAMSUNG will NOT drop HOME button.
    It could use a narrower one to fit the largest display into the smallest design.

    WOW bezel-less METAL design is what SAMSUNG and Motorola both need. ASAP!

    Galaxy SIV vs Galaxy Note III vs Motorola X!
    + Android 5 KLP on May 15.=)

  • rpras

    Is it just me or is the screen curved like the Galaxy Nexus?

  • http://www.facebook.com/michaelgonzalez2012 Michael Gonzalez

    Would be nice but Bluetooth 5 won’t even come out until the end of this year. So it’s obviously a fake.

  • Richard Yarrell

    Looks pretty good to me…
