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.

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.

As a freelance writer who is always on the go, I like my technology to be both efficient and effective so I can do my job well. The HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 Inkjet Printer ticks all the boxes in terms of form factor, performance and user interface.

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.
