Here come the leaked Samsung Galaxy S IV cases, suggesting a rectangular design

0. phoneArena 22 Feb 2013, 05:40 posted on

We were just wondering where is the typical influx of leaked cases for an yet-unreleased flagship to gossip about when it comes to the Galaxy S IV, and here they come, in all of their rectangular glory...

This is a discussion for a news. To read the whole news, click here

Agreed. So I guess we will just have to wait a little longer and see the first images of the S IV pop up :)

Although the s3 camera is a bit better than the s2 camera it wasn't the huge upgrade alot of people hoped for, I reckon we will see a huge camera senor on the s4 and some much improved software and lens etc

"Here come the leaked Samsung Galaxy S IV cases, suggesting a rectangular design" lol

OK as opposed to circular design, square design, or triangular design? lol

This is the most "SHOCKING" article I have read in years. The Samsung Galaxy S IV is going to be of rectangular design.

Well it's certainly more rectangular than their previous generation, and any genius who reads this article would understand that it is significant because it means Samsung is once again changing their flagship design.

Only in 2013 do we criticize a legitimate news article based on how "shocking" it is.

I could care less about the thickness, what's really important is the size of the bezel and the screen size.
If a thick phone means an indestructible build and better battery life, that's fine by me.

Just check the last picture... could it be a case for two different phones? The camera hole is lower on the one of the left!

Seymur is right. It's just an illusion because of how they are placed.

I would prefer front stereo speakers like those on the HTC One.

15. _Bone_ (Posts: 2140; Member since: 29 Oct 2012)


That'd make the bezel quite big though, a mono speaker replacing the Samsung logo area would be more ideal for phone-screen ratio. But I'm with you on the front facing speakers, wonder why don't they all just expand the phone speaker on top...

Looks a bit thick, doesn't it?

Anyways, two new SIV camera samples. The one with the keyboard is a bit worrying, it's a stable shot @ 13MP/16:9 according to EXIF, and it's not looking sharp at all.

16. _Bone_ (Posts: 2140; Member since: 29 Oct 2012)


Hence 13MP/16:9.

If this is the case for the real s4, I'm glad to see samsung coming back to a rectangular shape for its galaxy s line. The s3 corners are very ugly to look at

It's much easier to hold and feels good than square edged ones

Rea-he-he-he-lly??
Suggesting a rectangular design??
That's funny man...i thought of SIV to have square shared chasis!! /s

I hope the design is not S3-ish, something like the wave flagship series.

Rounded Edge? 13 megapixel camera? 5 inches display? Samsung Exynos 5 Octal-core processor? 4.1.2 Jelly Bean?

posted on 22 Feb 2013, 15:45

47. Android4u (Posts: 456; Member since: 16 Aug 2012)


Rounded edges? Maybe..13mp probably (just hope they focus on the sensor as well)...5 in display, getting too big IMO... Exynos 5? Sorry bro, but it's not going to happen..Sammy is having a real hard time with power issues...it's most likely going to have snapdragon 600...gnote 3 may have it, but not the s4... 4.2 would be better but yeah 4.1 is still amazing

Way Way to early for Samsung to have even finalized the design.

Yes, a rectangular design; because we're expecting the phone to be round.

Sad to say, but mobile fun's case won't fit the actual release. Unfortunately there are a few US companies who also brought in "S4" cases already and it's already positive it's not the right model.
