Galaxy S4: Is This Picture the Real Deal?

Steven Blum

We've seen a lot of supposed "leaks" during our time at AndroidPIT, and developed a rule of thumb: if the device looks boringly normal, it's usually the real deal. And so we WANT to believe the image above is actually the Galaxy S4. For one, the dimensions line up with all the rumors we've been absorbing these past few months; the bezel has been significantly reduced and the display just looks 4.99 inches in diameter. It looks like a longer version of the Galaxy S3, with more pointed corners, which is exactly what we were expecting.

This could be it, folks.

 

 

The photo was uploaded to a Picasa account by a student in Hong Kong on December 27th, and the user doesn't seem to have any connection to Samsung. The image is accompanied by the caption: "Galaxy S IV GT-I9500 Product Image.”

Samsung is rumored to be holding a special U.S.-based media event in March for the Galaxy S4, and the handset should be rolling out around April 15th. This doesn't quite match the date displayed on the screen, but it's close enough.

We still have a few questions, namely what is that physical button still doing under the screen? And why is it running the current version of Touchwiz and not something snazzier?

Of course, this is a rumor based on a picture uploaded by someone who seems to have no connection to Samsung. Anyone with photoshop can create a Galaxy S4-esque device. But it looks like it maybe, just maybe, is the real deal.
