Samsung Galaxy S IV front leak

Samsung's Galaxy S IV announcement is now just a few days away, and unsurprisingly, the rumor mill is starting to heat up. The latest leak comes from Chinese forum 52Samsung, where one user has put up images of what he claims to be a dual-SIM version of the Galaxy S IV for carrier China Unicom. The device is identified as the GT-I9502, while the single-SIM would carry the model number GT-I9500. The design of the phone in these images is similar to that of the Galaxy S III, and we can see that it features a physical home button, rounded corners and a center-mounted rear camera.

When it comes to specs, the benchmark app running on this device lists it as having a 1080p display (rumored to measure in at around 5 inches), quad-core "Universal5410" processor that could be Samsung's Exynos 5 Octa chip, 2GB RAM and Android 4.2.1 Jelly Bean beneath Samsung's TouchWiz UI. 

Adding to this leak is a report from SamMobile, which claims to have been told by a source that Samsung is planning to offer a dual-SIM version of the Galaxy S IV with the model number GT-I9205. Additionally, the device in these photos is listed as running the I9502ZNUAMB1 firmware, which is an earlier version of the I9502ZNUAMB5 firmware that Samsung is reportedly testing for its upcoming dual-SIM Galaxy S IV. The site was unable to confirm if the phone in these leaked images is indeed the Galaxy S IV.

While all of this information should certainly still be categorized as a rumor at this point, there are certainly aspects of the handset in these images that I wouldn't be surprised to see in the real Galaxy S IV. It's got a design similar to the Galaxy S III and includes the same rounded corners, plastic construction and physical home button that Samsung is known for. Considering that the Galaxy S IV is bound to be one of the biggest smartphone releases of the year, though, there are bound to be some fakes crop up. We also know that Samsung works hard to keep its flagship hardware under wraps before it's officially unveiled, so this could be one of several prototypes that the company has floating around to throw us all off. What do you all think of this unit? Would you be happy if this turned out to be the Galaxy S IV?

Thanks for your participation! :)

Matt Delima Great job Samsung! Such a new and innovative design! I'm so glad it looks exactly like my S3, thanks!
Gwendlynette Latrice I'll wait until the S5 comes out and I hope it's not any bigger than the S3 and that it has rounded corners.
Neville Hayfield Waiting for HTC ONE/M7 . 4 day's to go
Vicente Reyes The next Motorola device. ;-)
Gerald Dawkins I want the new LG coming out
Jeff Cross The GS4 gives me wood!
Diogenes Jimenez I just got a Note 2, so I'm content for now as I feel it's the best overall phone on the market. With that said, I'm looking at the Note 3 which always improves on the Galaxy S series.
Arturo Cifuentes Well that depends I have the note 2 and I love the screen and my s pen so maybe and then when the note 2 comes out pick it up 2
David DiPilla Maybe I have the note 2 I won it at the mall if the s4 looks different and has a good amount of better specs then the note 2 I might get it
Willie Lucero Not impressed, it's just a stretched s3, same cheap plastic design, huge ugly camera lens, speaker is on the bottom (which can more distortion) and they stuck with the stupid physical home button which almost nobody cares about.. Hope to god this isn't the real thing
Cesario Brito Jr. I'm waiting for the Note 3.
Angad Singh IPhone..
Camar Green Note 3
Marlon Milligan I'm going to get the HTC One. Epic build & Epic screen. It's also a remote, which I think is pretty neat.
Jaasiel Torres HTC one but if Samsung comes out with a phone with better build quality then the its them
James Frazier The HTC One has my full attention.
Warren Saunders HTC one!!
Brandon Edward Glenn HTC One. Easily.
Haldi Kuniqi Its a smaller note 2 I like
Ross OneloudMerc Belizaire The S IV is gonna sell well just like all of the other Galaxy units that Samsung offers and will also shoot for the number one spot as the most popular phone in the rankings like the S III and the Note II. This one is also gonna be for those who like the Note II but want something slightly smaller. But I would like to see a new Android OS on this one.
Marti Ruiz Looka dissapointing .looks likethe notei waa especting a new back design
Danu Carrión Perales Looks disappointingly big.... No...
Brandon Johnson It's great that the One and S4 are out... But... When the hell is the next version of android coming out? I wouldn't even buy either of those phones until I know when they'll be updated. Android 4.3 fruit roll up or whatever they decide to call it.
Juwon Donte Not much of an upgrade from my s3 to be honest..I'm tired of Samsungs cheap plastic it's a shame I have to put an otterbox case on my phone to keep it from breaking..my next phone will be the HTC one or lg optimus pro
Sean Walsh I want to compare this phone to the HTC & Sony Z & ZL.
Michael Mathis I'll wait for the Note 3.
Abram Wenevermet Dennis More cheap plastic
Justin White hmmmm if this is the GS4 then idk if i'll get it.
Ladale Toliver as long as it dosnt go back to the gs2 design
Tony DjWiteboy Lopez This is going finally kill the iphone for sure, that thing is so 2007, and probably compete very closely to the htc one. Too bad the one will lose because of lack of sd slot and battery removal, plus htc's batterys suck..wont last you for a whole day! with maximal use!!
Cal-Gene Johnson Another Paddle.... Just a 1080p screen....
Arpit Verma Never picking a Samsung device ever. Probably more inclined towards HTC One as far as Android devices go.
Audrey O'Donnell X Phone is what I'm watching.
Alexander Rojas Have the Nexus 4, but the HTC one owns my heart.
Christopher Manic Johnson I hope this isn't anything close to the GS4. I've seen GS4 concepts that are much more attractive and totally plausible. Samsung needs to figure it out; with specs beginning to spread out to most devices in all price ranges, aesthetics are what's going to win it soon, and Samsung is beginning to fall behind in that department.
Spencer Silva Sullivan Htc one with a sh#t camera an lack of parts. No thanks htcrap!! I got gs2 an still a fantastic fone for its age
Zongani Andre Chasimpha no it looks like a Galaxy note i wil go for lumia
Ascended Alteran Going to stay with my S3 but I'm also thinking of getting Note 8 in place of my old tablet.
Jacob Robert Wonder if call quality will suck as bad as the gs3, I like specs as much as the next guy.....but it needs to make calls first and foremost.
Cameron WeathermanCam Terrell I remember Watching your video on the galaxy s3 before the phone came out and I wanted it so bad. I got it on Black Friday and I don't think I want Amy other phone.....well, besides the Note 2 of course
Jeff Lee-wag Liwag Waiting for the next Nexus or whatever comes out in Google IO. Moto X? I dream of a Sony Nexus phone, though.
Rochill Balgue just like my note II, :)
Mark Hellard HTC one !
Siddharth Goyal Still ugly.
Jose Angel Santiago Looks like the s3. I will wait for the note 3 to come out.
Huey Liggins Based on the specs and my history wih Samsung I would definitely get it. But since I can't upgrade for a while I'll wait. The look is a bit disappointing but if I was all about the looks I'd get an iphone with matching beats
RJ Wahlang ...........yah ! not a final version.
??µ?t??? ???ts??? Htc one is the best
RJ Wahlang ...I was expecting aluminium sides man not plastic !
Jose Be Julme Yes I will trade in my S3 for the SIV right away!
Cal Turner The One isn't a fantastic piece of plastic like the S4. I want a phone that doesn't crack it have shifty batteries, thx.
Kenneth Chung camera pinhole is misaligned, its just a dummy case imo. I'm hoping the design is more square! Not a huge fan of the curves!
Ricky Bonilla Not liking it in my personal opinion. I highly hope this was a prototype
Spencer Silva Sullivan Yer i an if its better then sonyZ
Noriel Dacer this might be s4's design.in this case,samsung is in danger..LOL
Tyler Saddington <3 Nexus 4
Wayde Philpot It looks like a note 2 junior... I will be disappointed if this is the gs4
Sameed Qureshi Fake. -.-''
Marouane Lamharzi Alaoui Dual-SIM version ? I doubt that
Edgar Oliveira If this is real thing, then no!!! HTC One caught my attention!
Rob Melone I think I'm done with Samsung, getting the HTC One...
Ylla Quezon Pansacula hhhhmmm. i ll wait for the galaxy note 3
Michael Wong A phone is a phone anymore...
Gordon Christie i had the s2 and it is still as good as the best phones out now wouldnt mind the s4 but want a note or note 2
Tyler Franz Frodl I've had the s2 and the s3 and I really didn't like either of them. So I don't see how the s4 will be that great. I'd rather get the HTC One
