Samsung Galaxy S IV design looks to be largely unchanged from Galaxy S III…

galaxys4video

The same source that leaked images of what might be the Samsung Galaxy S 4 has now followed up with video of the device. The uploader is calling it the world’s first hands-on with the Galaxy S 4, i9502 China Unicom Version.

Very much like the leaked images, there really is no way of telling if this is indeed what Samsung will be showing off in its March 14 unveiling. It is indeed a real device that match the spec leaks to the dot, but there is still the possibility of it being a hoax or even a fake that Samsung is intentionally letting loose. Check it out:

What makes it even more interesting is the fact that Samsung has posted a new teaser image on its official Twitter account, and from the little bit of the device that we can see, it certainly looks similar to that of the one shown in the video.

You could also say that it looks similar to the GS III, which it does. Vlad Savov of The Verge tweeted a little comparison and it lines up perfectly with Samsung’s Galaxy S III:

Is Samsung copying Apple yet again and are we looking at a Galaxy S 3 S? Could this be a fake designed to keep us off the actual design that will be totally different? Or has Samsung simply decided to continue with what has been working for them so far? Only two more days and we’ll find out.

    [@Enrique] I highly doubt Samsung is leading us off a cliff and going to debut something very different tomorrow. You never know, though.

    [@colpha] The biggest problem with S3/S4 is they are getting so big, it is hard to design anything except a round slab.

    [@Alice Stewart] S4 will be a hit, no doubt. I personally just don’t like the design.

    [@Emrys] Ditto!

    As a new member of the T-Mobile telesales team, I have been watching the developments of the GS4 and find any further expansion of features somewhat akin to building a fighter jet so fast and agile that it kills the pilot who flies it. Screen resolution is finer than the eye can discern, dual-quad processors churn away faster than any data transfer reasonably needs to run for a mobile device and finally, at an estimated $750/copy price tag who would pay it? The Nexus4 is right sized and half the cost. A Kindle Fire HD has a bigger screen and is even less. Yes, the fad buyers will eat noodles til August to get one. I’ll wait and see how this plays out. Thanks for the updates…..keep them comming.

    I don’t think so that there is much resemblance between these two.I found this product the coolest of all the Samsung’s model. Design and resolution looks awesome and I think people will definitely like this gadget.

    [@Ashraf] You said it! It would also be really lame if all this hype and teasing was for a spec bump.

    Still, there’s still a chance that Samsung is saving the surprise for the event. And maybe, like they’ve said, it will truly be more about the software this time.

    Booooo! Samsung has never really been as good at physical design as Apple and HTC but this is getting sad. In some areas Samsung is innovating but in others it is following in Apple’s footsteps, i.e. leaving physical design the same. Honestly I think Galaxy S phones have never very aesthetically pleasing (they aren’t bad, but they aren’t great either) and Samsung continues to disappoint by keeping the same design.
