Samsung Galaxy S4 leaked images are stolen mock ups

Popular Twitter leak account steals retailers Galaxy S4 renders

Leaked images of Samsung's Galaxy S4 smartphone are actually a retailer's mock ups.

Online retailer Expansys has posted concept images of the Galaxy S4 ahead of the smartphone's launch next week. In some controversy, popular Twitter account for leaks, @evleaks, took the images and posted them as their own with a watermark added. See also: Samsung Galaxy S4 release date, specs and rumours.

Since then, evleaks has deleted the images which are concept mock up images of the Galaxy S4 designed for a landing page. There's been no word or apology from evleaks for what we'll politely call a mishap.

Expansys France said on Twitter: "our webdesigner made them !!! Evleaks stole them and added his logo :S"

Its website has a note at the bottom saying (translated): "Warning this information may be changed, they will be proven to the official release of the product."

The images, as you can see, show the rumoured move back to a more Galaxy S2 style square design, although no physical home button is present which Samsung will supposedly retain. The image shows the Galaxy S4 in front of the previous Galaxy smartphone to show the design and size evolution.

Expansys rounds up all the leaked and rumoured specifications for the Galaxy S4 too, including the 4.99in Full HD screen, Exynos 5 Octa 8-core processor and 13Mp camera.

It also talks about the eye tracking feature called 'Eye Scroll' which came to light earlier today which scrolls automatically up and down a page without touching the screen. Also, 'Eye Pause', apparently means video content will automatically pause whenever you look away from the screen.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

STYLISTIC Q572

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
