New leaked picture of Samsung Galaxy S IV resembles earlier image

New leaked picture of Samsung Galaxy S IV resembles earlier image
The Samsung Galaxy S IV is the most anticipated Android phone of the year. Samsung expects 100 million units to be sold in its first year, continuing the successful run that this line has had. Just like the buzz that surrounds each year's new version of the Apple iPhone, which usually includes a number of leaks and leaked photographs, there has been an excitement building over the next flagship Android device from the Korean based manufacturer. Already we have seen leaked photos of cases supposedly designed for the phone, along with a couple of pictures supposedly of the phone itself.

For example, just last week we saw a picture that was taken of the handset's bootscreen. The phone is obviously hard to see in the darkness of the shot, but it did reveal squared off corners, a departure from the Samsung Galaxy S III's big ol' rounded corners. The picture, if legit, put the kibosh in the rumor that the Galaxy S IV would resemble the prior model.

Now, on Wednesday night, we have the latest alleged leaked photograph of the Samsung Galaxy S IV. Mr. Blurrycam would be proud. Not only isn't the photo clear, it was also taken in a dark room. We do notice the similarities with the previous leaked shot, right down to the square corners. One thing we have to say about Samsung, the company does not sit on its laurels. The Samsung Galaxy S IV will be introduced on March 14th in New York City and unless you've had a few too many, the phone will look a lot clearer than this picture. We do have to say that the square look of the phone matches the design of the cases that we saw earlier, so this could be a legitimate shot of the device.

Square corners? Really? Now HTC, Nokia, Sony, LG, AND Samsung? Let's hope this isn't the case. The rounded corners are one of my favorite design aspects of the Galaxy S3- seems to make the phone seem smaller than it is.

I like square corners :D Didn't really like the S3 look, but the Hardaware and Software were the biggest trade-off. Same goes for the Note 2 :D

Everyone has square corners now! I didn't particularly like it either but the round corners I did like. I wouldn't mind if the device had some sort of curved shape to it, not just a flat rectangle (im looking at you Sony).

I'm waiting for a 100% round phone with no bezel to pop up somewhere :D

I love how this comment is directed at mine when I said nothing about build quality. I agree with you if it makes you feel better, but what I want is a premium rounded design, a la HTC One X.

Yeah, I prefer the square corners. It looks good on the s,s2 and the soon to be s4. It's a good thing they're leaving the ugly edges on the s3(that's the reason I decided to go for the htc one x because I didn't like the design of the s3)

Round corners are much comfortable to hold.

I would imagine it having something to do with apple patenting round corners on rectangular devices....

He would be afraid of showing his Sony device that has a Samsung Galaxy S IV page running.

yah ur right, the first leak has wrong letter arrangements the text logo must be> the "g" of Samsung must be on top of the "X" in GALAXY> which is seen on that latest boot screen leak..

Yeah, I'm not really liking the square corners, and if it has on-screen buttons, then I'm done. The galaxy s3 is beautiful, from this leak, it seems so over-used .

Mehn i hope not, the photo on the right definitely indicates an LCD, Amoled is pure black and doesn't use back-light

It should've been shot by a 920, it excels in low light.. XD

NOOOOO, That way then we'd see what the whole phone looks like. The hype will disappear :D

Create a random pixel mash-up and PA will post it as the "secret" phone of company X. Seriously, I know you need clicks for the adds but please exercise some journalistic standards.

Does the new pic on the left looks amoled display?

Yes, I thought exactly the same. But the letters look crazy compared to the other phones of the Galaxy S series.

About the letters it isn't a blurrycam shot. If you take a closer look the words are getting projected out 3d. As far as I know, this phone is the trend setter for every sammy device coming up.
