Is this the Samsung Galaxy S IV?

Is this the Samsung Galaxy S IV?

The picture that you have been staring at on this page is said to be a leaked press shot of the Samsung Galaxy S IV, sent out by someone who is allegedly a Samsung insider. Design-wise, the phone does look very similar to the Samsung Galaxy S III, but you can see that there is no home button on the device meaning on-screen buttons will be seen with the next flagship Android handset from Samsung. Another thing that really stands out is the amazing diet that Mr. Bezel has gone on. That is one thin bezel and the large screen is about as edge-to-edge as it gets.

The rumored specs include the 4.99 inch Super AMOLED Full HD screen with 1080 x 1920 resolution which should provde a pixel density of around 441ppi. Under the hood is a powerful quad-core 2GHz Exynos 5450 processor with 2GB of RAM aboard. The Mali-T658 GPU crunches the graphics and the rear and front cameras weigh in at 13MP and 2MP respectively. Android 4.2.1 is pre-installed on the phone, right out of the box.

Perhaps this is why some analysts call for Samsung to continue its strong growth in 2013.

that's not true that phone has hard corner and I don't think that Samsung Mobile will use that bad frame again

I'd say a prototype of Note 3 maybe. The screen look bigger than 5.5".

I'm I the only one who thinks that the designs of the new Galaxy phones is Super Ugly, it was nice on the Galaxy S3 because it was fresh and new, but the Note2 and now this!
And the so-small home button is hard to press on, and now it's even harder since it doesn't exist!!!

if this be S4 i don't like it, it is the middle size between S3 and note2
we want innovation and beauty simultaneously, just take a look at Sony's new models.

what with their 2011 hardware ? unfortunately when you have a successful flagship device you have to keep the same design elements, you can't just simply create a brand new looking device. The only time companies do that is when they are not doing well, i.e sony

i think Sony does well enough by the time it is separated from Ericson but it is just at the beginning of its long and difficult way. comparing Sony's design with that of Sammy, i prefer Sony's. Sammy is getting boring with its boring designs and its low quality. only the specs are good at Sammy but Sony has both design and specs.

Most of the Sony's handsets look similar to me. I mean similar to Samsung, they are kind of trapped in a narrow design language. Indeed better than Sammy though. People at Nokia know how to design beautiful phones.

How is the S3's ugly design similar to the Xperia S? And what about Galaxy S2 and the awesome looking Xperia Arc?

Well some misinterpretation going on here. I didn't say that sammy and sony design is similar. But their tendancy of not radically changing the current design is similar.

S3 is designed by lawmans because S2 is copycat design (do I need to mention iPhone). There is nothing special in Arc either.

Good for us, that atleast Nokia knows how to design phones. Shame that so many keeps copycating them *kröhmhtckrhm*. On the other hand, its a clear sign of perfect design, if secondary OEM:s likes to copy them.

Nokia handsets look all the same as well and their design haven't evolved one bit since the N9.

i'm a samsung fan, but i think you are right sony xperia ZL looks better, probably if they slim the vertical bezel they might have a chance .

Would rather get Sony's Odin aka Xperia ZL and not this piece of plastic.

You guys do know that Sony's Z/ZL is only for the first half of the year right?

If sammy does the same old thing like apple and releases their flagship phones once a year around the second half of the year:

Sony is already working on another phone for the second half of the year, THEREFORE, there is no point comparing Z/ZL and S-IV.

There will be a better phone (might be Xperia X) for H2. Specs are even better than Z/ZL. Someone leaked it over at XDA way back with A15-based chip, and he has correctly stated Z/ZL info, so why not for Xperia X?

I want this to be the design of the galaxy s4 but with less plastic and better materials(polycarbonate maybe), the s3 design was awful

Galaxy S3 IS made out of polycarbonate.

Oh, thanks for the info, when I meant polycarbonate I want them to use something similar to the one x since it is better to hold at compared to the s3

18. lee480 (Posts: 197; Member since: 24 Sep 2012)


But Samsung put on a lot of gloss that made it look like cheap plastic.
Btw Polycarbonate is a glorified form of plastic.

Yeah that gloss is something they should get rid off, it looks like a cheap plastic toy

I don't mind the gloss anymore, I kinda like it.. Better build quality than the GSIII is a must though!
