Yesterday an alleged Samsung Galaxy S IV leak was making the rounds in the internet and the device was a dual-SIM phone destined for the Chinese market, dubbed the GT-I9502. Now that same device has popped up in a YouTube video just as Samsung started to officially tease the phone with its own render.
Yesterday’s device is being handled in today’s video, with clear naming: Galaxy S IV, probably a Duos phone, headed to China Unicom, according to the title of the video.
We can see the dual-SIM construction once the battery cover is removed as well as the battery (but no rating can be read due to poor video quality). The sides of the phone reveal some differences when compared to the Galaxy S III, namely the chrome-like parts are now straight, a la Note II, and not slightly curved like on last year’s model.
The top features the 3.5mm headphone jack, a secondary microphone as well as a third hole (probably infrared blaster) while the sides are classic featuring a power button and a volume rocker. The bottom is also minimal with just a charging and syncing port.
The front is where the earpiece is on the top with sensors and LED to its left and right. On the back you’ll find the enlarged camera with the flash that has now moved below it and at the very bottom there’s the repositioned speaker grill, like on the Note II.
One thing to note here is that we no longer see the texture on the front of the device, or on the back. Instead, we see some fine lines like the ones present on the ATIV S.
There’s also a very brief look of TouchWiz which apparently looks exactly like the UX Nature on the S III but check it out for yourselves below!
