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

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.

A British mobile accessory retailer claims that its Chinese suppliers have leaked cases to them on the sly, alleged to be for Samsung's upcoming finest. We wouldn't put much thought into those, as it's not the first time case makers are duped to make some based on leaks themselves, which turn out to be different than the retail phone version, and also there are a few that are just trying to attract attention.

The sources eventually disclosed that besides the rectangular shape, the Galaxy S IV will have a larger screen, which measurements showed to be around 5", and the camera module looks quite large, with openings for the speaker grill and the LED flash around it. How about them case colors?

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.

the thickness as well.

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.

Here is the original link: 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!

Look closely, they are the same.

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.

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.
