For all you Samsung S3 lovers, here’s some good news. Images of the new Galaxy S4 were published on a Chinese forum, that users claim is the new Galaxy S4.
However, the authenticity of the images is uncertain as when compared to the pictures posted by the SamMobile in January, it looked a similar device but without a button on the front.
The handset appears slightly larger than the S3 and The Verge, which picked up the photos, says the forum claims the phone has a 1080p display, runs Android 4.2.1, has a 1.8 GHz Universal5410 processor and 2GB of RAM.
Those specs tally with recent rumours about the specifications of the Samsung Galaxy S4, The Verge says. The Universal5410 is “likely a codename for the Exynos Octa 5410, an eight-core processor with four A15 cores for power and four A7 cores for power efficiency.
Earlier today SamMobile reported that the Galaxy S4 would feature a “floating touch” display, which would allow people to control the phone without touching the screen and a previous report read that the new smartphone would scroll the screen by monitoring the movement of the user’s eyes.
The Samsung S Pen, used with the Galaxy Note range, has an Air View feature that activates certain functions simply by holding the stylus close to the screen without touching it. The website says it has been told by “an insider” that the Galaxy S4 will also feature a PHOLED screen, which is more energy efficient than a standard OLED screen.
SamMobile adds that it expects the Galaxy S4 to feature a 13-megapixel camera and a new photography mode called Samsung Orb that will capture 360-degree images.
