Right before Samsung’s Unpack Event 2013, where the Korean company will announced the Next Galaxy, Chinese website IT168 managed to get an engineering sample of a device purported to be the Galaxy S IV and took a bunch of high-resolution shots. The device you see has a model number GT-I9502, which is said to be the dual-SIM variant of the forth generation Galaxy S for China Unicom.
The alleged Galaxy S IV features a design similar to Galaxy S III and Note II and has the same plastic casing as the first three Galaxy S models. Both the front and back of the device have a textured design, the side frame has a metallic feel, and the home button is embossed. According to the site, the handset is just 7.7mm thick and weighs 138g.
For hardware specs, the supposed dual-SIM Galaxy S IV sports Samsung’s Exynos 5410 80core 1.8GHz processor, 2GB RAM and PowerVR SGX 554MP4 graphics chip. The big screen measures 4.99-inch and has 1080p Full HD resolution. There are a 13 Megapixel rear facing camera with LED flash and a front-facing camera. 16GB of internal storage is available and a microSD is provided for external storage.
Running Android 4.2.1, the new Galaxy S will come with Samsung’s custom user interface and unique features, including floating touch that performs S-Pen-like effect, Smart Stay that will keep the screen on when you are looking at it, Smart Scroll, Smart Pause that will pause video playback when you move away from the screen, and Smart Rotate.
Personally, I believed that this is what the Next Galaxy S will be like.
