Yesterday we talked a bit about some images of a curious smartphone that surfaced out of China. The images showed a Samsung smartphone that looked a lot like the Note II, but had hardware inside rumored to be the Galaxy S IV. The device carried model number GT-I9502.
While the phone looks nothing like we expect the Galaxy S IV to look like on the outside, the impressive hardware on the inside does match up with previous rumors of what Samsung would be cramming inside of its new high-end smartphone. We still suspect that this is a test mule running actual Galaxy S IV hardware with more mundane looks on the outside to throw people off.
A video has now turned up that appears to show the same person who took the photos yesterday giving a quick hands-on demonstration of the Samsung test mule. The video shows the phone with its back off and the battery. The person then put the battery back in and starts the phone up.
The hands-on doesn’t give up a lot of details that we couldn’t glean from the images yesterday. However, you can get an idea of how snappy the operating system works with the powerful processor inside the device. Thankfully, we only have two more days before Samsung officially unveils the S IV for all to see.
