The Korean tech giants have the world anxious for their “Unpacked” event this Thursday. With plans on releasing what they have deemed as the “next big thing” and “one of the most amazing products to hit the market since TV’s went color,” though they’re not saying it, there’s hardly any mystery in that the event will be held in celebration of their Galaxy S IV flagship’s official release. Especially with constant leaks as of late, such as this new one via SammyHub blog.
Spotted Monday morning on a Chinese mobile news forum are a solid handful of photos flaunting a Galaxy S IV (GT-I9502.) Most likely a prototype of sorts — meaning that this pictured model could be something different than the final product, it shows a dark grey exterior and the device’s benchmark app. Through this we observe it’s Android 4.1.2 OS, a 1080 full-HD display, 13MP camera and a it’s 1.8GHz processor backed with 2GB of RAM. If these specs represent those of the official S IV, we’d say “not too shabby.”
Whoever leaked the photos on the blog added that their will be a dual-SIM version for China Unicom communications company. Will there be a dual-SIM U.S. version also?
These photos most likely represent what is known as a ‘mule phone’ in the industry. Basically, Samsung may create various different versions of the same phone for testing prior to it’s release. This shows the S IV having slim body and curved edges, whereas leaks from last week showed a fat mock-up body. Again, just three more days and these questions will all be answered (and more.)
