Purported Galaxy S IV Appears Again In Hands-On Video


On Monday, a number of images hit the web that purportedly showed off the much-anticipated Samsung Galaxy S IV — just days before its official unveiling in New York City. The images looked genuine, but just in case you had any doubts that they might be fake, here’s a hands-on video of the device from the same source.

The video shows off the handset’s design — which isn’t too dissimilar to previous Samsung handsets, as we noted yesterday — as well as some of its features. We also get a glimpse of its ‘About’ screen, where you can see things like its model number and the version of Android it’s running, which happens to be 4.2.1 Jelly Bean.

The video proves that this is a real Samsung handset, then, but it’s still not clear if it is indeed the Galaxy S IV. There’s a good chance that it’s simply a prototype device that Samsung has been using for its tests, which would explain why it looks similar to previous Samsung handsets.

But those internal specifications prove that this is a brand new Samsung device, and we don’t have long to wait now before it’s confirmed by the Korean company; Samsung’s Unpacked event happens this Thursday, March 14, in New York City’s Times Square.
