Another day, another Samsung Galaxy S IV related leak has hit the Web. This time, we have video of what’s believed to be the Galaxy S IV Duos GT-I9502 Android smartphone. It’s from the same Chinese forum that leaked out images of the device yesterday. It’s likely we won’t see this identical design in other regions, but what we could see on March 14th, when the global Galaxy S4 is unveiled in NYC, is a similar-looking handset. The Android 4.2.1 Jelly Bean-equipped device shown in this video sports all the high-end specs that we’ve heard about for months, like a 5-inch 1080p FHD display, an Exynos 5410 Octa-core processor with PowerVR SGX 544MP GPU, 2GB of RAM, a 13 megapixel camera and 2600mAh battery. It even shows off some of the software, which maintains the familiar TouchWiz UX.
What’s difficult to swallow is the device’s aesthetics. It basically looks like a thicker Galaxy S III, which may not sit well with anxious consumers across the globe. They’re expecting something new, something more mind-blowing out of their next flagship Android phone. It’s an unfortunate position Samsung has put themselves in by spoiling us with such great follow-ups each year. We’re thinking this is a true representation of a Galaxy S IV specific to the Chinese market. We may see something similar announced for the U.S. and Europe this Thursday, but only time will tell just how similar the global version will be to what we’ve seen today. The teaser image Samsung pushed out late last night may be shrouded in a shadow, but it looks a lot like what’s shown in the video, wouldn’t you say? Two days!
