By  | 

More rumours about the Samsung Galaxy S4 have been floating around. This time photos have been leaked of what are said to be the Samsung Galaxy S4 press images. The image shows what the device may look like and it does seem in line with what fans expect from the upcoming handset.

The image shows us that the device has very similar looks to the current Samsung Galaxy S3, however the bezel is a lot thinner and there appears to be an even larger physical home button. If the images are the real deal then the corners of the handset have been redesigned to be symmetrical.

It is worth bearing in mind that the date on the Samsung Galaxy S4 in the image is April 22nd. While the handset compared to it is the Samsung Galaxy S3 in the official press photo, which has 3rd May on the screen. This was the date when the device was announced in 2012. So if the image is the real press photo, does this means that the Samsung Galaxy S4 would be announced on 22nd April 2013?

There have been rumours that Samsung will hold a US based media event in March and this is said to be for the Samsung Galaxy S4, the device may roll out on 15th April. However the image seems to contradict that report.

It has been said that the image has been in plain sight on Picasa for some time now. The image does have the name that you might expect, which is the “Galaxy S IV GT-I9500 Product Image.”

Of course there have been other Android devices brought out of the closet on Picasa before they are officially revealed. However, typically these images have been uploaded by people who were connected with the company. This one seems to be uploaded by someone in Hong Kong that may or may not have ties to Samsung Korea.

For the time being we have to take the image with a pinch of salt, but it does make you wonder why the photo was posted in the first place and if it is in fact the real thing.
