Another day another leak. With Samsung set to take the stage tomorrow evening live in New York City to announce and unveil their new Galaxy S4, we’re getting a few more high-res pictures and additional feature details tonight. While these come from the same leak as before, which hasn’t been confirmed as 100% accurate, we’re pretty sure this is legit. Imagine the Galaxy Note II S-Pen features without the S-Pen. Read on for more details.

The same Chinese forum has came through yet again this evening with an entire array of high-res images of the Galaxy S4. Showing it up close and personal in HD as we get a better look at that textured plastic design on the front, back, as well as that beautiful 1080p full HD 4.99-inch display. They even show off a few features we haven’t heard about until today.

Sadly it appears this units plastic battery cover already has a crack, so take that for what it’s worth. We’re not too worried about it because that removable back allows us to replace the now confirmed 2,600 mAh battery, as well as add storage with the micro-SD slot. So we’ll take it. They once again confirm the 1.8 GHz 8-core processor and 2GB of RAM, as well as a PowerVR SGX 544MP3 GPU for stunning graphics and gaming.

Then the image above shows an amazing feature we haven’t heard of until this evening. That being the same ‘hover’ feature found with the S-Pen stylus on the Galaxy Note II. It appears the Galaxy S4 will recognize the users finger and almost act as a stylus for floating menus and more. On the Note II this gives you a preview of pictures in a gallery without ever opening it, previews of videos, and much more. That would be quite a feature to have all while only using our finger.

Then the images also show off the already detailed Smart Stay eye tracking features we’ve been talking about for a few weeks. Features which will scroll automatically as your eye meets the end of a page, change pages when needed, and more. You can even see the Eye-Scroll enabled icon in the closeup image below.

As a reminder we’ll be live in New York City with all the details, pictures, and video they’ll allow so you’ll want to stay tuned right here for our coverage. Hit the link below for additional images of this impressive looking smartphone.

    wow! my finger as a stylus?! that sounds amazing!

  • MatthewMurawski

    At first I didn’t like the rumored design, but these clear, detailed pics changed my perspective. It looks pretty nice actually.

  • Bill

    I actually love this design!!

    octa core, 5 inch full hd screen and 544MP3 GPU will eat battery a lot….

    • Bill

      The Octa Core has a big.LITTLE technology to save battery. It will have a 2600 mAh battery, and the PHOLED screen will also decrease battery usage.

  • Boring design: HTC One wins the battle for looks!

    “Sadly it appears this units plastic battery cover already has a crack”

    That’s how “durable” the thin plastic is. And remeber the premium price of this device.

    But they will have better profits when they don’t have to spend any money on design or better materials…

      The pics of the front of the phone have all been Photoshop were the back and menu buttons are, I think these are clones tbh

      • The Galaxy S III leaks had the same weird lines where the buttons were last year. Just a thought.

    • Just imagine how many grubby people have manhandled this phone. Of course an idiot is going to drop it, The odds of not dropping the phone are astronomical. If all it has a cracked battery case then that’s not bad. Most of them will be living inside protective cases anyways.

    not exactly breaking the mould

  • Mushdagrt

    Damn, I hope thats not the final version of the hardware…

  • USAndroid

    Well aligned front elements/holes, metal finish, as simple as possible curves + WOW features and hardware by tech giant SAMSUNG.

    I really WANT this.

    • USAndroid

      + special thanks for a dedicated neat LED indicator HOLE,

      because HTC’s “breakthrough” ideas like LED behind the speaker are AWFUL.

      5″ inch display is enough to shut down HTC this year with its 4.7″ focus on PPI.
      SAMSUNG’s display will have HIGH enough PPI to beat all Retina displays and kill HTC by the size.
