The Samsung Galaxy S4 has been recently speculated and widely anticipated to be announced at a Samsung Unpacked event in March.
Some alleged bumper cases for Samsung Galaxy S4 have been leaked to give a somewhat accurate clue of what the upcoming handset will look like.
Folks at Mobile Fun, a UK smartphone accessory shop, managed to get their hands on photos of some upcoming cases for the Galaxy S4, which the accessory shop claimed to come from a “trusted Chinese accessory manufacturer.”
The two Samsung Galaxy S4 cases appear large enough to accommodate the rumored 4.99-inch Full HD display. There is an opening in the back of the case to accommodate a center mounted camera and the placement of the camera seems to be in line with the previously announced bumper case. However, these cases seems more rectangular in design than the previous ones.
The Galaxy S4 is rumored to use a 13MP camera with a flash. The second opening near the camera is likely to accommodate a speaker. It also seems that the cases are big enough to house a smartphone that features a screen size of around 5-inches, which also fits in with previous rumours about the handset.
Rumor has it that Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd. (LON:BC94) (KRX:005930) may use QUALCOMM, Inc. (NASDAQ:QCOM) processors inside the Galaxy S4, having faced issues with its Exynos 5 Octa chip. No concrete news, however, have come from officially of the company
Prior to launching its flagship product, Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd. (LON:BC94) (KRX:005930) takes extreme measures to keep the smartphone design a top secret. The case designs, no matter how reliable the maker is, may have been designed based on speculations alone and it should be noted that sometimes case manufacturers get their facts wrong and may rely on rumors to build their products.
