Less than a day ahead of its official unveiling, more leaked images have virtually confirmed the design of the Samsung Galaxy S IV Android phone.

First discovered by US website The Verge, the images published on Chinese website mobile.it168.com are identical to earlier leaked photos of the device and confirm that the Galaxy S IV will retain a very similar look to its predecessor.

The new handset is designed in line with Samsung's Galaxy S III and Galaxy Note II smartphones, utilising a similar plastic construction with removable back cover.

The phone appears to have a new pattern etched into the glossy plastic that adorns the front and back, while the side shows a brushed aluminium-style look. The latter appears to be the most significant design change.

The description of the leaked Galaxy S IV confirms it will be powered by a 1.8GHz Exynos 5410 Octa processor and 2GB of RAM, while the 16GB of internal memory will be expandable by a microSD card slot.

The Galaxy S IV will measure 7.7mm thick and weigh 138g. It will come with a 4.99in display with a full HD 1080p resolution and will also have a 13-megapixel camera, an upgrade from the Galaxy S III's 8-megapixel snapper.

The leaked images show a dual-SIM device, but this is likely to be a version specifically for the Chinese market.

The leaked information makes no reference to the rumoured eye scrolling feature but the Galaxy S IV will come with a feature called 'Air View Finger' . This feature will allow users to hover their finger over the screen to preview selected information on the phone, such as a video thumbnail or a calendar entry.

A similar feature is included in Samsung's Galaxy Note II Android phone but only works with the S Pen stylus, not a users' finger.

Samsung will officially unveil the Galaxy S IV on Thursday 14 March (Friday 15 March, Australian time) at a press event in New York.

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
