Leaked : Samsung Galaxy S4 Hands-On Video (Real or Fake?!)
A video posted on YouTube shows hands-on with Samsung Galaxy S4 smartphone.
Although the footage is rather amateur, shot in portrait mode obviously from a smartphone device, the Samsung Galaxy S4 handset shown is very similar to the official Samsung photo teaser shown today, and much akin to a larger version of the Samsung Galaxy S3 handset.
The video shows the battery being put in, rear cover clicked into place and then the flagship handset is booted up. The upcoming TouchWiz UI is then on display, alongside a quick camera demo, and a run-through through the home screen, dialler and settings menu. This latter shot quickly confirms that the upcoming flagship handset should wield NFC technology and could run the latest Android 4.2.1 Jelly Bean.
This particular version of the Samsung Galaxy S4 seems to be a dual SIM version, with tewo SIM card slots under the plastic rear plate. It also shows the China Unicom logo during boot up, suggesting this version is for the Chinese market.
Listed as the GT-i9502, the Samsung leak could very well be the new SGS4. It runs on Android 4.2.1, and an AnTuTu benchmark of 26118.
The specs match out to the previous rumours: Full 1080p HD AMOLED display, runs Android OS 4.2.1 (might come with 4.2.2 out of the box), 1.8GHz processor (“Universal5410? might suggest it’s the rumoured Exynos Octa 5410 CPU), 2GB of RAM, 13MP camera and a 2MP front-facing camera, a PowerVR SGX 544MP graphics processor. The overall design looks similar to the Galaxy S III, but if real, the GS IV will sport aluminium around the sides.
Another hotly anticipated feature of the Samsung Galaxy S4 is Samsung’s patented ‘eye tracking’ system, which will allow users to automatically scroll through webpages by simply casting their eyes across the display.
Amusingly, there’s a promo video for Apple’s iPad Mini playing in the background of the video, likely a reference to the contentious relationship between Apple and Samsung, which both work together on component supplies and are bitter opponents in the courtroom.
