I like how GSMarena said that Samsung protected their earlier designs for s2 and s3... not that there was any surprise in any of Samsung design, or not that was something sparkling that needed to be hidden until release. So, even if is not this nothing special device, it will be for shore the same;). So, you people should stop waiting for a device that is as predictable as a wheel that spins. Look it's corners are rounded, but not rounded rounded like s3 and not so squarish round like s2, is another kind of round, a bit... between them. JA WOLL
AnonD-122482, 11 Mar 2013S4 has to come up with a unique design to compete with the rivals i hope the design shld be be... moreWell said, i like the design of the S2, the S3 is ugly, long and curvy. S2 looks like candy bar.
this is not final design just checkout the pictures properly
these pics indicate two sim on the device and s 4 never comes with dual sim even at the time of launching
gazakidd, 11 Mar 2013actually rooting doesn't necessarily give you OFFICIAL updates faster. its more meant for CUS... moreAgreed custom roms are unstable at times but they do give u updates faster...i wud stick with official updates too...but as soon as a new flagship gets declared the older one is normally forgotten...s2 and s are examples ...ya s2 did get the jellybean update but it was after a long time jellybean was declared...and i live in India ...they give updates nearly half a month after the european updates and nearly two months after us updates...its a long time to wait
AnonD-105312, 11 Mar 2013are u crazy ?? This not a final design 1st read the news & then shout dudeTrue said. That Troll™
If this is the design.. Their marketing team will need to work double hard
no matter what.
but samssung always provide great software support.
S4 has to come up with a unique design to compete with the rivals i hope the design shld be better....
S2 was the best in terms of design i have used both S2 and S3 but S2 was better.... it had much more slimmer look...
This is a China phone.
Gsmarena i thought u are serious.
U can see the 2 signal bars for the dual sim mode.
AnonD-88768, 11 Mar 2013Surely is plastic, but specs surely are better than others. Home brewed Exynos, not the shitty... moresadly the rumours suggest samsung isnt gonna use the exynos 5 due to few power problems...theyre mostlu likely gonna use snapdragon itself...and the qualcomm chips are one of the most advanced mobile chips in the world presently ...so u shud think twice before calling it crap
Samsung should come with a unique design this time...
as there are more competitors in the market
Ugly as shit ..... Sorry for that but Samsung just making me sick with this rubbish design .

its more meant for CUSTOM ROMS, addons, mods etc.
as juicy as rooting and custom roms are i've had my fair share of it already.
will stick to OFFICIAL updates rolling out.
thank you very much.
samsung mobile !! please take me as a phone designer engineer. i promise i will make great design for samsung galaxy s 5 :)
