Android fans across the world are unanimous that Samsung Galaxy S4 can beat Apple iPhone 5 any day. We take a look at S4 rumors, price and leaked pictures

Merely 24 hours is left in the unveiling ceremony of Korean tech giant Samsung’s next generation flagship handset Galaxy S3. There is so much excitement in the air that it seems that the forthcoming handset will be the game changer. There was never, ever so much excitement about an Android handset the way it is turning out to be for Galaxy S4.

But Android seems to be on a high and its biggest beneficiary Samsung is smiling all the way to the bank. The handset is set to perpetuate Android and Samsung’s dominance on the smart-phone market across the world. It is set to be an impeccable product, according to Android fans and people will be making long queues when it is actually introduced in the market.

Whenever a mobile developer is expected to launch its next flagship, the leaked photos and videos of the supposed device starts pouring in on the web world. Debates are on whether the alleged photos and videos are legitimate or not.

The Chinese website bbs.52samsung.com , that had earlier posted alleged leaked photos of the Samsung Galaxy S IV, has once again posted a video showing a device that supposedly looks like Galaxy S4.  The teaser image posted by Samsung on its official Twitter page seems quite similar to the smartphone shown in the video.

The video shows a dual sim device with the name GT-I9502 and according to the video this alleged Samsung Galaxy S IV is meant for China Unicom telecom network. From the video, it seems that Samsung Galaxy S IV has used its structural design from Samsung Galaxy Note II and will also have a plastic body.

It is expected to have a ‘Universal5410′ 1.8GHz processor, 2GB of RAM and a PowerVR SGX 544MP graphics processor. And the most anticipated feature of the impending handset is Samsung’s patented ‘eye tracking’ system, which will allow users to automatically scroll through web pages by merely staring their eyes across the display.

“The phone will track a user’s eyes to determine where to scroll”, a Samsung employee said in a statement.

The rumors which suggest that the new smartphone will have a 4.99-inch display with 1080p resolution, 2 gigabytes of RAM, 13-megapixel rear camera, 2-megapixel front-facing camera and Google’s mobile operating system Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean and the connectivity options will include Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, NFC and wireless charging support.

The expected device will come in Black and White color variants; will have new green PHOLED display technology, also the floating touch and a Photosphere-like function called Samsung Orb.

“These are the first ever leaked images of the Galaxy S IV, but keep in mind that these images could be of a prototype of the device. Last year, Samsung produced 3-4 different prototypes of the Galaxy S III and then gave them to their partners for testing purposes but at the launch itself the device looked entirely different. We do know that there are almost 4-5 different prototypes of the Galaxy S IV all around the world, this could be one of them,” writes SamMobile.

Samsung Electronics’ mobile division chief JK Shin told South Korea’s Edaily news website that, “We introduced the Galaxy S III in London last year, and this time we changed the venue (to New York)… as we were bombarded with requests from U.S. mobile carriers to unveil the Galaxy S IV in the country.”
