Samsung Galaxy S4 leaked images are stolen mock ups

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.
