Rumors circling the next Samsung flagship device, the Galaxy S4, have been going on for months. As we get closer to a date when Samsung is actually going to announce the thing, trustworthy leaks will slip here and there, with most of them focusing on the specs and overall look of the device. Apparently, according to sources in Samsung, the design for the device has been finalized and it’s exactly what we thought it would be. No major changes. 

According to a Korean publication, the well-known home button is here to stay, whether you love it or hate it. It’s become a staple on their devices and it was suggested previously that Samsung wasn’t looking to make major aesthetic changes to the S4 over the S3. Furthermore, it was rumored that Samsung would implement their S-Pen and matching suite of apps in the device, but I never believed that for a second. From what is being stated, it looks like there will not be an S-Pen present when the S4 launches.

Can’t say we are at all surprised by this new info, especially since separating both devices (GS4 and G-Note 3) is the smarter move in terms of the S-Pen thing, but did anyone really think they would drop the home button? This is Samsung we’re talking about!
