It’s been difficult to get an early take a look at Samsung’s Galaxy S4 in advance of its reputable unveiling, however we would possibly have some new knowledge courtesy of accent retailer MobileFun. Consistent with a “depended on” Chinese language accent maker, the photographs you see beneath are reduce-out to suit Samsung’s as-but introduced flagship instrument. There aren’t loads of surprises right here — it’s rectangular and has lower-outs for audio system, cameras, ports, and different odds and ends.
It’s laborious to guage the form of the nonexistent telephone with out if truth be told seeing it, however these circumstances inform us to predict a tool that’s a bit of larger than the Galaxy S3, with edges which can be only a bit extra sharp and pointed. In fact, the larger dimension would come from the 5-inch 1080p show that’s rumored to be going throughout the factor. These circumstances would additionally appear to substantiate latest rumors that the Galaxy S4 gained’t be getting an S Pen, although that isn’t too shocking.
Going a bit further than that, the cutouts for the rear camera seem a tad bit larger than we’re normally used to. We’re not sure if this means we can expect a bigger camera sensor or just a bigger area surrounding it, but the cutout is rather consistent across the two different designs seen above and below. The cutout to the left of that is likely the flash as the cutout on the right of one of the cases is separated by a plastic bar, a design which indicates the presence of a speaker grill there.
There’s not much else to take from these photos so enjoy them however you can. In related news, Samsung is rumored to be bringing a feature to its TouchWiz camera called Orb. This feature can be likened to the Photo Sphere feature that was introduced with Android 4.2, which gives you the ability to take 360-degree photos of your surroundings using a quick, easy and intuitive process.
Even more frustrating than not having an early look at the device is that we don’t even have a clear idea of when Samsung is looking to unveil this thing. The latest rumors peg March 14th in New York City, while an earlier, independent rumor said we would see it March 15th in the same city.
Since those two dates are in close proximity to each other we have a pretty light circle surrounding that stretch of time on our calendars. Let’s get through Mobile World Congress first, and then we’ll see if Samsung starts hyping up the next Next Big Thing soon after.
