As we are fast approaching to its event in the coming months, some alleged camera samples from a yet not officially announced high-end Android phone surfaced on Google+ yesterday. According to the source, the device used for capturing them was the Samsung Galaxy S IV, which is the upcoming Android flagship from the South Korean manufacturer.
It seems the pictures was shot at Samsung office. You can see a desk calendar with Samsung branding. All the previous rumors mentioned that S IV is supposed to have a 13MP back camera, but these samples have been captured in a low-resolution mode (probably at 6MP). Moreover, the EXIF data of the images doesn’t provide details about the camera of the Galaxy S IV phone, but it has confirmed model numbers, which were listed as SHV-E300S (South Korean version), SGH-I337 (AT&T version), and both these models have utilized f/2.2 aperture, and 4.2mm focal length.
It’s worth mentioning that the sample images have been taken down from tipster’s Google+ account, which is suggesting that we are talking about real deal here, and these were taken with Galaxy S IV models, although we cannot judge the quality of the pictures yet.
We do hope that Sammy will unveil the Galaxy S IV handset at its special Mobile Unpacked event next month and goes for sale in April, but a latest report from SamMobile claims that the manufacturer is planning to launch it at Sochi 2014 in Moscow. We’ve also heard that model numbers for Sprint and Galaxy S IV handsets will be referred as SPH-D806, and SCH-V727 respectively.
What we do know about the Galaxy S IV is that it’ll feature a 5-inch super AMOLED 1080p screen, Samsung’s Exynos 5440 quad-core processor with 2GB of RAM, 13MP rear-facing camera, Mali-T658 GPU, and more.
What do you think, folks? Are you looking forward to the grand unveiling of Galaxy S IV?
