Possible Samsung Galaxy S IV render leak

Possible Samsung Galaxy S IV render leak
The big unveiling of the Samsung Galaxy S IV is planned for next Thursday, so it's about time we got a potential leaked render of the device from a more reputable source. This leak comes from @evleaks, who has had a record of solid leaks including leaked promo photos of the HTC DROID DNA before its release. Earlier this evening, @evleaks tweeted two images that look to show off the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S IV.

Although, right from the first glance, we wonder if this is a leak of what the Samsung Galaxy S IV will look like, or if it is a leak of what the promotional materials will look like with a place-holder image in the position where the IV would be. In the images, the supposed S IV has no real distinguishing features at all. Gone is the traditional home button, and it looks like Samsung may have abandoned capacitive buttons all together. The device has a more rectangular shape to it, which does match leaked cases we saw. 

The leak also seems to confirm the specs that we thought we would see. Based on the size of the device relative to the older Galaxy S models, it looks to be a 5" screen, and the materials label it as Super AMOLED and "full HD". The leak also says a 13MP camera, storage options of 16GB, 32GB, and 64GB, with 2GB of RAM, and Android 4.2 at launch. 

What do you think? Is this the real thing?

UPDATE: Alas, that's just a placeholder and not an actual leaked Samsung Galaxy S IV rendering. The original image can be seen at Expansys.
