Update: the render turned out to be a fan concept. We apologize for the confusion.
Yes, folks, we have a new Galaxy S4 image for you – what looks like an official press photo, not that it’s confirmed or anything like that – right alongside specs and features for Samsung’s 2013 flagship smartphone.
Get your grain of salt and hold on to it while we show you what this beast may have to offer:
- 5-inch 1080p Full HD Super AMOLED+ Display
- Corning Gorilla Glass 3
- 2GHz A15 Exynos 5450 quad-core CPU
- 2GB DDR3 RAM
- ARM Mali T658 GPU
- 16/32/64GB storage options
- Removable SD card slot (up to 64GB)
- 13MP rear-facing camera
- 2MP front-facing camera
- 4G LTE support
- Multi-purpose / Dedicated camera button
- Bluetooth 5.0
- Front speakers
- 3100 mAh battery
- Android 4.2 Jelly Bean with TouchWiz UI
Not that we’re thinking this is the final specs sheet for the Galaxy S4, but it’s worth noting that it doesn’t mention the inclusion of Samsung’s recently announced Exynos 5 Octa chip, which is said to power Samsung’s flagship devices this year. Instead, an Exynos 5450 quad-core processor is listed. Moreover, this leak suggest that the Galaxy S4 will have a much bigger battery than other rumors, at 3100mAh vs 2600mAh.
Looking at the overall design of this render, we notice that there’s not home button, while the front speakers look sort of strange. Overall, the image gives off the impression that we’re looking at a body made of metal, which would be a very strange direction for Samsung when it comes to choosing build materials for its devices. And what’s the deal with that “multi-purpose / dedicated camera button?”
What do you guys think about the render and the specs mentioned? What would you like to see in the Galaxy S4 later this year?
