On the eve of its unveiling, more Samsung Galaxy S 4 pictures leak
With the unveiling of the Samsung Galaxy S 4 just hours away, some more pictures of the device have leaked. These are photographs of the GT-I9502 that are allegedly heading to China with two, two, two SIM cards in one phone. The specs include a 4.99 inch 1080p screen, a quad-core Exynos 5410 CPU and the PowerVR SGX 544MP3 GPU (which we already told you about earlier). 2GB of RAM and 16GB of storage are on board and a 2600mAh battery powers the device.

While the rumored eye tracking feature that uses the front-facing camera to scroll content on the screen will not be on the unit, it seems that there will be a feature that tracks eye movement to stop and start videos. If your eyes dart away from the screen, a video that is playing will stop. Focus back on the screen and the movie will re-start. Unfortunately for Samsung, its country mate, LG, beat it to the punch with an announcement today that the feature will be made available as an update for the LG Optimus G Pro.

Another feature on the Samsung Galaxy S 4 allows your finger to hover over the screen to see previews of your email and other content. This is similar to the Air View that is used with the stylus on the Samsung GALAXY Note II.

With the clock ticking toward today's big introduction of the Samsung Galaxy S 4, keep it right here on Phone Arena for live coverage!

Just like me, is everyone unhappy about this purported desing of s4?

Mate Sammy introduced flexible displays they are 1000000000 times more capable than this design and device. So please don't say that :(

It actually does, just the usual design trolling here, the S4 will rock based on the leaked specs. What good is a stunningly gorgeous HTC One if it does half the video playback time oh and you can't even get one?

The reason this can still be a fake is 1) I don't think Samsung is giving away final design to average ppl. before revealing the product first, only test usits which differ exactly for leaking reasons. Final versions get out before release which is a few weeks from now.

2) One picture on the screen-close-up shows pixelization pattern suggesting the resolution is lower (much lower) than FHD. You can pretty much mimic everything from looks to faked system information to faked benchmarks, but you can't mimic a FHD screen.

I really want to like Samsung's phone. Their flagship is an all rounder. But I don't like the S3 design. Not to mention it's also used in NoteII and S3 Mini.

Nevertheless. Most of the people I know uses a case (flip case) with their S3 and Note2. So I don't think the overall look will affect Sammy's fans from buying S4. I think the Display is what matter most to them rather than the build.

*scratches s4 off list* OK! HTC One, Moto X, and iPhone 5s (if all else fails) are now my prospects...

I don't think it is the final one mate.
What are the things on capacitive buttons and near sensors?
They look different to originals and something is not done

I think it is just one of prototypes or fake model from Sammy to surprise us :)

I don't believe Chinese source this time since I believe the real GS4 is in Korea and US by now.
There is no reason that the first final GS4 version is in China

Plus if those pics leaked from Korea, it woud be more likely.
But China?..
Sammy is not an Apple.

Dude, just stop trolling all Samsung articles already ! If you 'hate' Samsung, then why come on their every post and call it with 'absolute certainty' that it is cheap-looking ? BTW, not everyone puts design above specs !

You seriously need to get a life, man ! Grow up

Im not impressed with the S4. Other than the internal specs, its not enough for me to regret upgrading the the S3 in december of last year. Cellphone technology has started to plateau and thats not a good thing

"Video playback time"? I wouldn't say that the HTC One was no good because, the Samsung G IV may have a slightly longer video playback battery life.

Remember the ad of the GS3 were they made fun of Apple by saying something like: "If it looks the same, how will people know that I upgraded?"? Yeah, it kinda happened now to Samsung. lol. To be fair though, it do differentiates a bit more from GS3, unlike iPhone 4/4S.

it looks somewhat different from the sgIII, but it looks near identical to the note II. I wouldn't be surprised if they combined the Note and the Galaxy Series

Sammy with this phone is kind of following apple steps about te design, if this is acutually the real S IV I hope de next Galaxy S flagship suffers a total redisign or all the phone world will be really disappointed

I think that despite the fact that it´s specs will be awesome no dude about that, some people really care about the design and that sort of premiun feel, if Sammy don´t pay attention in this kind of stuff he will loose potential clients

Watch out Samsung, Apple is going to sue you for reusing your design. That was their thing.

Haha! How could your comment get so many thumbs down,its bone of the best I've seen in ages! The ammount of times using those ctrl functions has saved my life in work is funny!

I'd be disappointed if the s4 looked exactly like the s3,although I don't think it will. I think Samsung has sent out fake cases over the right internals to keep the design secret. The beauty of android is though if manufacturer did an apple and release the exact same phone design twice I'd have plenty of top other android handsets to choose from. I have been using a Htc one recently for example and its a class bit of kit
