The Galaxy S4 is arguably the most-anticipated Android smartphone of this year, so it’s only natural that people are curious. And it’s also natural that details about it should continue to leak out, no matter how hard Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd. (LON:BC94) (KRX:005930) tries to keep them under wraps.
Information Week reports that GSM Israel provided screen shots of the Galaxy S4. The screen shots are different than those tweeted by the well-known tipster evleaks, and they show us some important new information about the Galaxy S4.
First, it’s clear that the user interface has been redesigned a bit. The icons are new, and the setting has been changed up a bit. The shots also confirm reports that the device will feature Smart Scroll technology, which basically tracks the eye movement as the user uses the device. The shots also appear to feature Smart Pause technology, which is designed to pause video or audio when the user turns his or her head.
The device also appears to be running Android 4.2.1 Jelly Bean, which is almost the newest version of the Android operating system. It does look like the Galaxy S4 will have a cheap plastic case, however, just as previous models have.
We’ve already known some details of the Galaxy S4 for a while, like the possibility that it will utilize Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd. (LON:BC94) (KRX:005930)’s octo-core processor and a 4.99-inch 1080p HD display.
Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd. (LON:BC94) (KRX:005930) teased us with a video and an invitation for the media to come and take a gander at the launch event, which is set for March 14 in Times Square.
