Samsung-focussed blog SamMobile has posted an image that the blog half-heartedly claims is a leaked press shot of the Samsung Galaxy S IV.
The blog says it has “received a huge tip from our insider at Samsung” who has sent them this image of “the next generation of the Galaxy S series, the Galaxy S IV”. The blog goes on to state that it isn’t 100% convinced about the image, but notes that the image of the device, which looks similar to the Galaxy S III and the Galaxy Premier does not look like a fake.
While the blog did not receive any information about specifications or the expected release date, we have plenty of earlier rumours to fall back upon. The latest one claimed that the Samsung Galaxy IV may come with a S-pen stylus, as seen in the Galaxy Note series, as Samsung looks to merge the Galaxy and Note series to come up with a “mega-flagship”.
Other reports have indicated that the Galaxy S IV will indeed come with a 4.99-inch Super AMOLED display with 1920×1080 resolution, giving it a pixel density of 441ppi. Additionally, murmurs are that the next Samsung Android flagship will run on Android Jelly Bean 4.2 and feature a 2GHz quad-core Exynos processor and an 8-core GPU, alongside 2GB RAM. It is likely to be equipped with a 13-megapixel camera rear auto-focus camera and, at 9.2mm, be slightly thicker than the Galaxy S III.
