All-New Galaxy S IV Renders Leak; Could Be the Real Deal


We’ve seen some Galaxy S IV renders of suspicious origin, we’ve seen some hard-to-make-out shots of hardware, but tonight we get what may be the best preview of Samsung’s new flagship to date, upon a pair of renders leaking of the Galaxy S IV.

These come from evleaks, who has been a very high-quality source of leaked material for unreleased phones in the past, so you should be paying close attention to what we’ve got here.

Especially in the comparison shot with other Galaxy S models above, it’s clear that this image of the Galaxy S IV isn’t quite of the same quality as those other renders, so it’s possible that this was serving as a placeholder image until the phone’s design was finalized. Even so, there’s a lot that’s very interesting here, including the absence of a physical home button, and not much room for capacitive Android buttons, either.

The specs attached to the image below are intriguing themselves. We’ve been thinking lately that Samsung might not be able to use an AMOLED with the GS4, and would have to go with an LCD, instead. Could that rumor be wrong, or possibly this info could be old?

The details may change a little, but could this really be essentially how the Galaxy S IV will arrive?

Update: New info on the source of these pics has us doubting they actually depict GS4 hardware.
