Samsung GT-I9502 leaks out: a Galaxy S IV candidate for China
posted by Victor H. / Mar 11, 2013, 3:47 AM
Images of the Samsung GT-I9502 have leaked out just days before the Galaxy S IV official unveiling, and they could show what the upcoming Android superphone would look like. Still, we’d take them with the usual grain of salt. What we are seeing is a device with rounded edges that matches the rumored specs of the Galaxy S IV - Android 4.2.1, a 1080p display with a quad-core 1.8GHz processor, 2 gigs of RAM and a 13-megapixel camera.
However, virtually all sources that have spoken on the Galaxy S IV so far mention that it will be a rectangular device with no rounded edges like the design we’re seeing here. So this could well be just one of the prototypes Samsung is testing undercover, stuffed with the Galaxy S IV internals but with a different look.
Another interesting bit about this here leak is that it is actually a dual-SIM phone for China Unicom. We wouldn’t completely rule out a dual-SIM Galaxy S IV, but we definitely don’t expect it to be available from day one.
We’ll know whether this one is real or not in just a couple of days on March 14th when Samsung is expected to announce the device in New York.

I don't think this will be the final design. Remember the leaked pictures of live Galaxy S III before? It was different from the ultimate design, right? As far as I remember, Samsung makes 2-3 different designs for its test phones. Its inside could be the Galaxy S IV but I know Samsung is smart enough not to pattern a successor from its predecessor just like what they did to S II and S III. Samsung never disappoints. :D

Does Apple have a copyright on making the same looking phones year after year? If so, Samsung may be in trouble. Lol. But seriously, if this is anything like the actual phone then Samsung pulled an Apple on us when it comes to design. I would be disappointed.

Yes, but i remember reading that Samsung kept the real model of the Galaxy S3 a secret until launch by floating multiple fake models. . The material seems to be nice though. If this is the real phone, they really need to take pointers from Nokia, HTC, Sony, etc for design queues. But knowing Samsung, if they wanted to, they would rip off their design as their own and try to justify it in court.

Judging by the white settings screen, it is not an AMOLED screen. It is usually black on AMOLED devices.

The front-facing camera hole doesn't quite align properly, this cannot be a final version, some Chinese knock-off probably

FAKE - FAKE - FAKE - FAKE If Samsung held the secret this long, i don't think they would release such a clear picture now... This isn't Apple, where nothing is manufactured, Samsung has their own factories... Hint, NO outside SPIES. ;)

Has it ever maybe occurred to you that Samsung use plastic because its simply the best material to use...aluminium does not allowed NFC, no removable battery, no removable micro SD and because it allows the manufacturing to be cheap they can sell the phone with the best software for a reasonable price!
