Samsung Galaxy S4 Image Leaked, May Come in April

The world's first Samsung Galaxy S4 press image has been leaked, with the device, which is apparently codenamed Altius (J), expected to launch in April.

On December 27, 2012, a student from Hong Kong posted the image of what is believed to be the Samsung Galaxy S4 on Picasa, with the information naming the device the "Galaxy S IV GT-I9500", which is the name outed by a recent benchmark.

As seen above, the picture depicts the device with a less rounded top and bottom when compared to the Galaxy S3. It also seems to sport a thinner bezel and a larger screen, as well as a home button -- a feature that was missing from the previously leaked image.

The Samsung Galaxy S4 is allegedly codenamed Altius (J) and will feature a 2600mAh battery, as well as wireless charging capabilities. Accompanying that is a 4.99-inch Super AMOLED FHD screen, in addition to Samsung's eight-core processor and a flexible, unbreakable screen (which was announced by Samsung during CES 2013).

Although Samsung said the Galaxy S4 won't launch until May at the earliest, the aforementioned codename report added that it'll start shipping in April, which matches a previous rumor suggesting the same launch period.

    otacon728 core mobile processor?.... no reason for it at all. 5" screen is too big to fit in a pocket comfortably.

    I disagree, my Note II fits perfectly fine in every pocket I've used. Never once thought it was too bulky. Sounds like you either have small hands syndrome or just can't afford it so you try to talk it down like you just don't want it.

    Then buy one of those cheap pre-paid phones, just because you don't want a great phone doesn't mean others don't.

    Now the real question is when can I pre-order this?

    Still waiting to hear about the Galaxy Note 3 with a 6.3 inch screen, 8 core processor, 1080p 4gb ram...The S4's bigger brother.

    It looks nearly identical to the S3, Hopefully Samsung doesn't become Apple when it comes to their phone's design.

    i dont see anything that would prompt a S3 user to switch over to this. Yeah its more powerful, but most phones are fast enough for the generic user
