SMARTPHONE : Dual SIM Samsung Galaxy S IV images surface
There are several leaks of the upcoming flagship from Samsung that have surfaced over the last couple of days, and today, just hours before the launch event for the Galaxy S IV, we see yet another one pop up. This time it is a Dual SIM device, and is by several accounts a prototype, meaning that the final build might not look like the device pictured.
Otherwise, the specs sheet is largely the same as what we suspect will be in the Galaxy S IV:
4.99” AMOLED/PHOLED display
Resolution 1080 x 1920
Exynos 5410 1.8GHz Octa-core processor
PowerVR SGX 544MP3 GPU
16GB internal memory
140.1 x 71.8 x 7.7mm
Weight 138 gram
Dual-SIM - one of which is likely hot-swappable
According to the source, the dual-SIM model will come with the standard carrier bloatware preinstalled. From a design standpoint, it has a cross-hatched texture rather than the brushed aluminum look of the S III, with a thinner bezel, embossed home button, and redone plastic back cover. The Air View feature is reportedly still buggy, but that's likely due to the prototype build.
This leak brings up an interesting question in regards to the validity of some of the leaks we've come across - is it possible that until now all we've been seeing have been test devices, perhaps even ones purposely leaked by Samsung to keep the real deal under wraps?
Either way, only a few hours left before we all find out what the real deal is - be sure to check back with us for full coverage of tonight's unpacked event!
