Update: Check out the latest teaser video on Samsung’s Facebook Page.
Only a couple of days away till the Samsung Unpack event scheduled for 14 March 2013, where Samsung will unveil its next Galaxy but look at what a Chinese forum, 52 Samsung, received – a post showing off a set of very convincing images featuring the Samsung Galaxy S IV. Why is it convincing? Because prior to that, Samsung posted a teaser image on its US Twitter account, showing the outline of the Galaxy S IV that has a very similar design.
Along with pictures showing the outlook of the phone, which looks a mighty lot like the Note II, the post also listed out some specifications, confirming a number of rumors we’ve been seeing for the past couple of months. The GT-I1502 comes with a 1080p display and runs on Android 4.2.1 out of the box. Judging from the images, the size of the display should be 5”, looking just a tiny bit smaller than the Note II.
And here’s the most exciting part and possibly what everyone’s looking forward to – the core of the device. According to the post, it has a “Universal5410” 1.8GHz processor, “Universal5410” should be the codename for the latest Exynos Octa 5410 processor from Samsung, which is an eight-core processor with four A15 cores for power, and four A7 cores for power efficiency, are you excited yet?
Of course, do take these rumors with a pinch of salt. I’m just very glad that the phone looks like a phone, not a phablet, and it does not look like a rectangular and wide LG Optimus Vu.
