Samsung Galaxy S4 pictures leaked online

Mar 12 (): The pictures of Samsung Galaxy S4, the new smartphone expected to be released in New York on Thursday this week, have been leaked online.

The pictures that were leaked apparently show the Chinese dual-SIM version of the Galaxy S4. It looks remarkably similar to the Galaxy Note 2 and has a fine grid-like pattern on the back and even around the speaker grille on the front.

The person who uploaded the images claims that the device is dual-SIM and is set for release from carrier China Unicom, the mono-SIM version is also available on model number GT-i9500.

The front portion of the smartphone shows the typical Samsung branding sitting just below the earpiece surrounded by other sensors and a front camera as well. The back portion shows a camera, slightly protruding outwards with the LED flash just below it. The lock screen looks to have undergone some face-lift and now there’s a very clean-looking interface.

The display will apparently feature the ‘floating touch’ technology, permitting users to operate the screen without actually touching it. This will be paired with a unique eye-scrolling capability and new display technology, called ‘green PHOLED’ that supposedly will reduce power consumption.

Some images reveal information regarding the device specifications. Much of the features are revealed through the images. The phone has 1080 x 1920 display resolution, a 1.8 GHz quad-core Exynos 5410 processor with 2 GB RAM, 13 MP camera, PowerVR SGX 544 MP GPU and the device is powered by Android 4.2.1(Jelly Bean) with the Nature UX skin on top.

The rumour revolving around Galaxy S4 started running early this month, with reports of availability of six different Galaxy S4 variants – black and white colour options, as well as three different size capacities — 16GB, 32GB, and 64GB.

But the company is still silent about its new smartphone ahead of its March 14 official release, at a press event in New York. The company has offered only a teaser video, part two of which was posted yesterday and tipped new colours.
