Samsung Galaxy S IV pics, video, specs - it's all here

Samsung Galaxy S IV pics, video, specs - it's all here

Can't be bothered waiting till 11pm for the Samsung Galaxy S IV launch over in NYC? Don't blame you, but the good news is a last-minute leak-o-rama means you effectively don't have to.

That's assuming this splurge of leakage is correct, of course, but if so you can indulge in a close look at the Galaxy S IV in both highly detailed photo and video form, plus get a good whiff of some last-minute spec revelations too.

Starting with the pics, how about a full 19 of them, covering general and specific design points and also showing the interface and some software features in a fair bit of detail?

Well step up with just what you're looking for. The snaps give us the best sense yet of the Galaxy S IV's design, and suggests why Samsung is completely unfazed not to have gone with a metal or polycarbonate chassis.

The two-tone brushed design looks about as sophisticated and high-grade as ordinary plastic can get, and in any case it's that super-crisp 4.99in display that draws your eye pretty much straight away anyway.

Accompanying the pics are various specs, most of which will make for familiar reading: the 1080p display, 1.8GHz Exynos 5410 processor (which doesn't rule out the different processors for different regions approach we've heard suggested), 7.7mm thickness and 138g overall weight.

Graphics-wise we're talking a 533MHz PowerVR SGX 544MP3 chip, which should be up for some serious gaming action, for which the 2GB will come in handy too come to think of it. There's also 16GB of storage (likely just one of the storage options), plus microSD card support.

On the features side, we're expecting a glut of fancy new technologies, including eye-tracking, a floating touch interface and potentially even a 3D camera.

And two of those – floating touch and SmartPause – have been outed in a pair of last minute videos in case you want one last hit of Galaxy S IV pre-launch debauchery.

I just watched the "Floating Touch" video. Really? It's more difficult to miss the screen by 3 mm than it is to touch it. Why not combine the action with the pop-up menu that appears when you press and hold? Sheer gimmickry - until someone comes up with a great app that makes efficient use of it on a 5-inch screen. But great in the pub I guess...where most Android phones are 'demoed' :p

I also watched that scrolling clip... Not understanding the commentary it appeared to be the clip of a browser that went nuts, so no comment. For now.

You missed "metal-feel plastic"! Tsssk... Samsung's own Wave 3 was a 4-incher with a gorgeous metal case. The first Galaxy S was plastic. The Wave was 3 grams heavier! Same battery etc...

genuinely hoping all these leaks are of an S3+ and this is all a diabolical misdirection.

genuinely hoping all these leaks are of an S3+ and this is all a diabolical misdirection. That's be cool. I'd actually blindly buy and SGS4 if all this was just a ruse. LOL

Floating Touch... it's just proof'that we're definitely at a low point now where mobile manufacturers are introducing these technological advances for the sake of it, to show it off and hope people will say "wow" and buy the phone.

Ads very little value and there's not much use for it.
