With just over 3 days to go till the New York announcement which should see the unveiling of the Samsung Galaxy S IV, it appears that a phone purported to be the new handset has been leaked onto a Chinese forum. With a model number of the GT-I9502 the phone has been shown off from all angles and at first looks appears to be fairly legitimate – as far as these things go – showing a physical home key and a capactative key either side.
The photos also show a leaked screenshot of Antutu running which gives away some key information regarding specs on the phone. If the screenshots are to be believed the phone will be running an Exynos 5410 CPU (Octa) clocked at 1.8GHz with a PowerVR SGX 544MP GPU pusing a 1080p display, it will come with 2GB of RAM and a 12.8MP Camera(4128×3096) all running Touchwiz OS on Android 4.2.1
Hardware wise from the photos you can see a White and Black variants, with a patterned ingrained into the plastic. The originating website speaks of this GT-I9502 being a ‘dual card’ version with the single card version being the GT-I9500 most likely relating to a Dual-SIM variant for China.
With the launch only days away this is the first ‘leak’ we’ve seen so far after the launch of the Galaxy S III was plagued with leaks of the phone’s internals disguised in generic blank boxes. Only time will tell if this, is the Galaxy S IV. Tune in with us on Friday at 10am Eastern time to see the entire Samsung announcement on their YouTube channel.
