Leaked photo of Samsung Galaxy S4 appears online

Chinese forum publishes possible S4 handset

Samsung is planning to launch its next flagship hanset this week in New York but a Chinese site appears to have already got its hands on the new device

It's no secret that Samsung is planning a big reveal this week for the Galaxy S4 over in Times Square. But, as ever, purported pictures of the new device appear to have leaked online ahead of the launch.

A Chinese forum has posted pictures of what is believed to be the S4, complete with a GT-I9502 model number. The handset is believed to be a version provided for the Chinese mobile carrier China Unicom.

We already know a fair bit about the insides of the S4, including the 1.8GHz, Exynos 5 Octa processor and the 4.99-inch Super AMOLED display with Full HD resolution.

The phone will come with the latest version of Android and a choice of storage space from 16, 32 and 64GB capacities.

Unfortunately, we just don't know whether the photo is genuine or not. If it is - it looks like Samsung has kept to the rounded edges and general appearance of the Samsung Galaxy S3. No bad thing in our book.

Head over to our Samsung Galaxy S4 rumour round-up for the definitive speculation tear-down surrounding the next Galaxy handset.
