Samsung Mobile US tweeted a teaser image of “the next big thing”. But is this how the Galaxy S4 will look like or is it just a false lead?
You know those images of a China-bound Galaxy S4 that were leaked yesterday? Apparently, we might have been wrong for calling them fake. Samsung Mobile US just teased a tantalizing image of what’s supposedly The Next Big Thing, and the phone does bear a resemblance with yesterday’s leaked device.
Looking at the image that Samsung tweeted a few hours ago, the thing that strikes me is the close resemblance to the Galaxy S3. In fact, I superimposed an image of the Galaxy S3 over it, and their shapes are identical. However, there are some differences when it comes to the position of the Samsung logo and obviously, the absence of speakers, camera, and sensors.
To make more of the phone visible I play around with the levels. Here’s the result:
What’s going on here? I am wondering if Samsung would really keep the same design for the new Galaxy S4.
All the previous information we had (save for yesterday’s leak) suggested that Samsung will adopt a new, angular design for the new flagship.
Moreover, several rumors indicated that Sammy is going for a black and white scheme. Even the video teaser starring little Jeremy offers some clues that the Galaxy S4 will come in black and white versions (or perhaps a combination of the two colors).
But the device teased in the image has the same curvature as the Galaxy S3, and at least to my eye, that looks like Pebble Blue, not black.
Could Samsung be trying to muddle the waters ahead of the launch? Perhaps they want the Galaxy S4 to be a total surprise… Oh well, only two days to go.

TWO DAYS LEFT!!
More like 3 days left Australian time, Friday the 15 for us. US on the 14.
3 days for me to (in Finland), just noticed that :O
When I first saw this picture on twitter, I thought it looked too much like a Galaxy S III.
The top curves pretty much match what the Galaxy S III looks like.
I think Samsung is just putting stuff out there to build hype and apparently its working.
Every tech site is talking about Samsung.
I think the Galaxy S IV will look somewhat like a Galaxy S III and not just a 5 inch Galaxy S III.
If it indeed looks like the S3, then I’ll get a HTC One I guess. Never liked the rounded design much.
Silver Edges, hmm, looks more Blackberrish…
Actually, after doing some little research on the web, those yesterday leaked images seem pretty damn legit. It might be some duos version, but the actual S4 will look somewhat like that. (http://www.ibtimes.com/samsung-galaxy-s4-leaked-photos-already-dismissed-fake-photos-1118457 ) And in my opinion it’s a quite good looking device with a lot smaller bezel than even the S3.
There is only one thing on the moment that might prove this being fake, I found a moment ago: It sure looks like this one: http://www.aliexpress.com/item/Presale-NEO-N003-MTK6589-Quad-Core-Smart-Phone-5-3-Inch-HD-1280x720P-IPS-Android-4/740369451.html?tracelog=back_to_detail_a
The teaser picture here tho’ looks like just some teasing from Sammy in form of the Galaxy S3. And some people actually say the render above is made by a fan: https://www.facebook.com/SamsungMobileUSA/app_502843389734643
ALSO: So called “S4 Duos” video on youtube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=gfzom-RdrwI <-Tho' might be some iteration of the Note 2

Pic here of the s3 and this image side by side.
The image in this post either IS the s3, or else the S4 will have an identical form factor:
Perhaps it’s just gimmick
Is this really all you have Samsung? Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz Galaxy S IIIs I anyone?
tbh the s4 should be the exact same size as the s3, but squeeze a 5 inch screen in there instead
a crazy thought! Samsung wnts to make fun of apple by leaking this pic that the S4 will be of the same form-factor as S3! :D :P
