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.

Fake, that render severely lacks details and 3D perception compared to the other phones in the back ground

I agree. This screams fake at first sight.

A fake based on the leaked dark photos, the creator used those curves and made the elements Note II-like. That photo which was leaked in December with the physical button and the official release date is the real deal.

It might just be me, but it looks too wide to be real

Wow...I hope that's not it. The GS3 is much better looking. Note 3, or math.

The screen difference between the S4 & S3 looks a little bigger then the .19 that it is

i agree the S4 seems to be more like a 5.5 - 5.8 screen compared with the S3 but i like the less bezel .

Why can't they make a galaxy device with a full metal body? Plastic feels really cheap.

the aspect ratio and top and bottom bezel do not match...this leak shows that the bottom bezel is half the size of the top bezel and the link you gave shows the top and bottom bezel to be equal

The home button will stay with the S IV, as reported... This may be a fake.

it's fake b/c its way too wide to be a GS4. Note 3 is more of a look alike.

Wow... Really? Who the hell would think that's a real phone.... It has no texture whatsoever... this is a poorly made photoshop... wow

If real, then it is totally misproportioned. A 5 inch screen with less bezel than the Xperia ZL wouldn't look that wide and fat, unless they used some retarded aspect ratio like the 4:3 Optimus Vu. I hope not, that thing was butt ugly. If it was 16:9 like it should be, then it would look a lot sleeker than that. Looks too fat Samsung, you better not release something like this.

I believe ol' Sammy said they weren't really too concerned with the hardware because it would be the software that MADE the device. I don't about all that because if it looks boring like this I doubt they will hit their hopeful 100 million projection....
