There's been a steady flow of leaked information regarding the Galaxy S4 over the last few months and especially the last few weeks. However, these are the most convincing images of the Galaxy S4 we've seen. See Samsung Galaxy S4 specs: confirmed.
As you can see, the Galaxy S4 is photographed on a desk and also in-hand. It matches the device shown in other leaked photos and a hands-on video of the Galaxy S4 leaked earlier this week. See also: Samsung Galaxy S4 release date, specs and rumours.
The text accompanying the shots is yet further confirmation that the Galaxy S4 will use a 5in Full HD screen, 1.8GHz Exynos 5410 processor, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of internal storage and Android 4.2.1 Jelly Bean.
We're also treated to exact dimensions and weight for the Galaxy S4 – 71.8x140.1x7.7mm and 138g. It has a textured finish with the slightly odd combination of a black front facia and white removable rear cover.
What concerns us is that this device is the dual-SIM GT-I9502 model which was leaked before as a test device for Chinese network Unicom.
The model bound for the UK could be exactly the same except have a single SIM-card slot, of course. We're can't be 100 percent sure but Samsung will hopefully make all this clear later today.
Here's some more of the leaked images.
