Rumours about the specs of the Samsung Galaxy S4 are floating around as we wait to hear about the handset from Samsung. One area about the new handset that we don’t know is what the design of the phone will look like. However this week we have a render which gives you an idea of what the device could look like if it was designed with metal materials.
Of course you do have to bear in mind that this is just a render and so the authenticity of it is in doubt. There were rumours going around that the render was the official look of the Samsung Galaxy S4, however as the picture has been going around the internet for some time now it is more than likely just another Photoshop picture.
The handset does look great though and the use of metal materials would be an interesting move from Samsung, in comparison to the Samsung Galaxy S3. One thing that is missing is the physical home button and you can see that the display is almost edge to edge with just the smallest of bezel.
Another big difference is the curves have gone and this has been replaced with a rectangular feel with curved edges to the top and the bottom. The grills for the speakers are exposed on the front and this is a bold look. If Samsung were to have the speakers this way then we would love to have Beats Audio included too.
With the render of the device is a spec list of what could come with the device. The rumoured 13 megapixel camera in there, 2GB of RAM, Micro SD card support, Gorilla Glass 3, a battery of 3100mAh and a display of 5 inches in 1080p Super AMOLED. The processor is the Exynos 5450 instead of the Exynos 5 Octa processer which was rumoured to be coming with the Samsung Galaxy S4.
Of course the image is not official and the specs could therefore not appear when the device is released. However the use of metals is great.
