Alleged Image of Samsung Galaxy S IV was up on Picasa for nearly a month
Is this the Samsung Galaxy S IV?
Suppose we told you that a press image of the Samsung Galaxy S IV has been available for you to look at for nearly a month? Seems crazy, right? Back on December 27th 2012, a student from Hong Kong with absolutely no connection to Samsung, posted the image of what is alleged to be the Samsung Galaxy S IV. The picture shows a phone with some subtle changes from the Samsung Galaxy S III including a less rounded top and bottom, a thinner bezel, and a larger screen and home button. Even the information listed with the picture on Picasa has what appears to be the correct information, as it names the phone the "Galaxy S IV GT-I9500 Product Image".

Earlier on Tuesday we told you that J.K. Shin said that the Samsung Galaxy S IV will not appear at MWC, and speculation centers on a U.S. hosted Samsung Unpacked event on March 22nd as the date when the sequel to the hot selling Samsung Galaxy S III will be introduced with a launch to commence in the middle of the following month.

The Samsung Galaxy S IV is allegedly the GT-I9500 with Samsung skipping the GT-I9400 model designation since the number "4" is considered to be bad luck in Korea. The device is currently going by the code name of Altius (J), will supposedly have a 2600mAh battery and wireless charging capabilities. That goes with the expected 5 inch Super AMOLED FHD screen, Samsung Exynos 5 Octa processor and a 13MP camera. Let the drooling commence.
