Could This Be Our First Look at the Samsung Galaxy S4?

A few minutes ago, the very reliable @evleaks took to his Twitter account to post two images of what could be our first look at the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S4. This Twitter account is known for being fairly spot-on with his leaks and predictions of phones in the past, but the images of this Galaxy S4 look quite different from the earlier Galaxy phones Samsung released in the past. 

First off, the square-edged design that this device is sporting looks a lot different from the S3 before it, something that we had assumed Samsung had wanted to keep. Even though we wish they did, it’s hard to believe that Samsung would get rid of their “iconic” home button and move towards on-screen buttons instead, which this image suggests.

The rectangular design does match up with the reported S4 cases that we saw the other week. The specs listed in one of the images also somewhat match up with what has been rumored so far, but there isn’t even so much as a Samsung logo to be found on either of the two pictures. We have heard rumors either way on whether or not the device will sport a FHD Super AMOLED or not. This leak suggests that it will.

Evleaks is usually pretty spot on with what he finds however, so this could be close to what we will end up seeing on March 14 at the Unpacked event. Then again, this could be far from what we will actually see, and at this point, we just don’t know.

What do you think? Is Samsung going to finally do away with their home button? Or is this a placeholder render to throw us all off until the unveiling?

  • The fact that the SIV in the picture has no home screen, whereas the others do, suggests fan artwork to me.

    Hope its not correct, it looks too big.

    Oh there’s plenty of room to put Verizon logo on the bottom of the phone. If they can put one on the Note 2 little button, they most definitely CAN put on the bottom of the GSIV! But thats not going to stop me from buying one.

    I’ll tell you on the 14th. I plan to be front and center for the launch event in times square. Nicely enough it’s only a couple hours after I finish up work for the day.

    Samsung go learn from HTC good luck with your plastic crap i’m not buying it i’m going HTC ONE i hate plastic.

  • Looks like Note 2 but 2013 model!

    I’m pretty sure this is fake, even if @evleaks has been right in the past. The biggest clue to me is the font used for “Galaxy S IV.” Every Galaxy device uses the same font for the word galaxy and the “s” for the Galaxy S is more of a shape than a letter. I don’t think Samsung would make any marketing materials that don’t incorporate that logo and branding scheme. Then there is the lack of the home button. So many people want Samsung to switch to on-screen buttons and would be thrilled if they listened with the GS4, but considering how many devices Samsung has launched with Android 4.0+ that still have a physical home button, I don’t think they will deviate from that trend.

    Finally, no press button. This phone looks pretty good to me. Hopefully,, it has SLCD3 screen or double brightness on AMOLED screen. Otherwise, it still can’t be used outdoor.

  • I most like it and waiting for the 14th March to buy it…

    I probably drew that in mspaint last night while I was sleep walking. Also explains the bump on my head.

  • seriously?

    does anyone honestly think that thing is real?

  • This is fake…. really droid life, why would you even post this? I could of done better editing. Why is it even that big of a deal? Nonetheless its just a phone, not a cure for cancer. Just wait 10 days till they announce it

      *could’ve, not could of. Evileaks is usually dead on. That is the reason every blog is posting it.

      • yeah not this time. shut up, spelling police, lol your a loser kid
