We’re just three days away from Samsung unveiling its latest flagship smartphone, the Samsung Galaxy S4, and you can bet we couldn’t be any more excited to see what it turns out to be. You had to guess that we might start seeing more and more leaks ahead of schedule, and one Chinese forum may have come through with some early looks at the device.
Right away, you might notice that this doesn’t look much different from frames of the Galaxy S3 and the Galaxy Note 2. That’s alright, because this might not be the final design we see unveiled on Thursday. Samsung could be testing prototypes of the device with a different chassis as the company did with the Samsung Galaxy S3 for situations just like these. The leaked cases we saw earlier this month wouldn’t fit these designs, either, but then again we’re not sure if those cases were accurate themselves.
This particular device was thrown into the Antutu arena, and that revealed it had a full HD display, about 2GB of RAM, a 1.8GHz quad-core “5410” processor (Exynos 5410 is the Octa-Core chipset Samsung unveiled earlier this year), and a 13 megapixel camera. The person who leaked the pictures claims this will be a dual-SIM variant headed for China Telecom, and that bit of info could also lend credence to the fact that we might not see this exact device come Thursday.
Take a long hard look above and make your own mind up about whether or not this device (or something like it) is the one we’ll be seeing March 14th in New York City. Don’t forget Phandroid will be in the neighborhood that day to check it out for ourselves so be sure to come back and see if Samsung can continue its stellar reputation for innovation in 2013.
