Samsung Galaxy S IV photos leaked

Samsung Galaxy S IV images show possible smartphone design

Photos of Samsung's Galaxy S IV smartphone have been leaked online days before its official launch.

We're just three days away from the highly anticipated Samsung Galaxy S IV smartphone launch and images have leaked of the handset. A user of Chinese forum 52Samsung has posted the pictures of the Galaxy S IV.

The images show a smartphone which looks like a larger version of the Galaxy S III, similar to that of the Galaxy Note II. It has the distinct Samsung Galaxy look and has the same physical home button as precious generations.

However, the design looks quite different to previous leaks and reports which have suggested a much squarer design and smaller bezels above and below the screen. This black model in the photos appears to have a textured finish, but this could just be appearance only.

It's possible these photos are a hoax or is a prototype which Samsung has made for testing purposes so the final design could well look very different. The model number says GT-I9502 rather than the expected GT-I9500.

Translated, the users post says: "The machine model GT-I9502 Unicom customized version of the legendary S4" suggesting this is a test model for the Chinese mobile network.

Some shots of the menu system confirm that the Galaxy S4 is running on Android 4.2.1 Jelly Bean. A number of previously rumoured specifications are also confirmed such as a 5in Full HD screen, a 1.8GHz processor, believed to be the Exynos 5 Octa and 2GB of RAM.

Samsung will unveil the Galaxy S4 this Thursday, 14 March, so be sure to join us for all the news, specs, price, images and release date.

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.
