More images allegedly from the Samsung Galaxy S IV camera get posted online
Earlier this month, we showed you what allegedly was a picture taken with the camera for the Samsung Galaxy S IV. Now, a couple of new photographs have appeared on Picasa that could very well have been snapped using Samsung's next flagship Android phone. The two photos are certainly not going to win a prize for artistry as they both show the back of a desktop computer tower.

The EXIF data show that the device used to take the photos was the Samsung GT-I9505 which sounds like the international version of the Samsung Galaxy S IV. The data also show that the resolution on the newer pictures is 2322 x 4128 which does show that a 13MP camera could have been used. We should point out that EXIF data can be faked. The Picasa account is under the name of Su Ya and the subject of the pictures says "Test," which would make sense if these are indeed pictures taken while testing the camera on the phone.

As we alluded to earlier, the quality of the pictures is not good, to say the least, but even if the shots are from a Samsung Galaxy S IV, it certainly wouldn't be the final version yet and some tuning up of the camera sensor still could be on Sammy's "Things-to-do list".

If those pics were taken with an S4, its camera sucks.

Whether its the GS4 camera or not, the user obviously didn't focus the lens and just snapped the pic. Calm down. Any phone camera at any given time can take a pic that blurry.

Probably just an excuse to rip on Samsung. He knows full well that its not a proper photo test.

lol pkiran, you're right. However, I do like Samsung but I cannot stand hyped up products. Besides, those pics could've been taken with anything--cellphone, name it. Until the phone is launched, and makes its way to my store, I'll pass on all the speculation.

At least you're honest. When previous iterations of products are brilliant and successful, it's not surprising that the next version is going to be hyped up (in this case, perhaps overhyped)

Even the 2 years old Pureview smoked the 2012 Galaxy. And now another Nokia is coming. #MWC

interesting to know that the place where that photo was taken (most probably a samsung facility or a chinese factory where the device is being constructed) still has that kind of computer tower. i know this sounds stupid but i really thought those towers are already extinct in the developed/industrialized world.

Now you're just being silly, those towers have been standardized and still used by businesses all over the world. They're cheap, simple and offers all the basic functions/necessities at the lowest prices. The chances of them being extinct in the corporate world is really slim. Businesses will only use OSX when they're either using the features available in OSX, too dumb to use Windows or have an abundance of money to spend.

I was thinking the same.. This pic cannot be from Samsung headquarter.. It must have been clicked by some low line staffs somewhere else..

lol you underestimate the computer by looking at its case. You don't have an idea of what are inside it. It could probably be powered by a powerful Core i7 or a Xeon in a 2011 LGA motherboard, with 32 GB of RAM, a Geforce GTX680 or a Quadro as a graphic processor or other future proof components. The computer at my office still has that kind of old tower case, but what inside it is something powerful like I mention above. For what? For an engineering job. My advise: don't judge the computer by its case. It could be a monstrous workstation.

It sounds beyond stupid

Sorry but I want photos of the device itself, not of it's camera. Here let me go to work and take a couple pictures using my Note 2 and report it as the SGS4, yawn.

Haha.... Better yet, take photo with a DSLR, edit the EXIF file to show purported GS IV specs and then publish it to Picasa. All of the anti-Sammy community will promptly vomit in their hands.


Posts: 3131; Member since: Jan 12, 2010

lmao! I know right? If the SGS2 can take better photos of this, why would anyone suspect this to be from the SGS4? I don't care about testing products, unless it's the device itself or UI. Note 2 and SGS3 take amazing photos so I have no doubt the SGS3 and Note 3 will be even better.

Man seriously don't give a tester that can't take good quality pictures

super fake.. how could d latest flagship of sammy have terrible photos? gs3 and note2 were 2 of d best mob cameras last year.. and i dont think their production dept will look like that, those CPUs look oldschool and the envronmnt looks like a regular office, thinking that Sammy take a lot of effort to make their flagship phone secret even within d company haha

these leaked camera photos are so worthless. I don't care about camera photos until the final product is out and reviewers have taken photos.
