According to reports from Sammobile,  the first official press image of Samsung Galaxy S4 has been leaked. While not yet completed the design of the device, this would be the prototype that the Korean company would show to some top executives at CES 2013.

We already knew that Samsung would show a prototype of its next flagship to some top executives at CES 2013 that is about to begin and that the device would not be released before May this year, but that’s not all. Now has leaked the first allegedly official image of the Galaxy S4.

Analyzing what is observed in the picture, we can say that in terms of design, the phone looks very similar to the Galaxy S3, although you can see that there is no start button which would mean that there will be only on screen buttons in the next Samsung flagship. In addition, the bezel is extremely thin and the screen goes almost from edge to edge. I think this would be a very good decision to increase the screen size to 5 inches as expected, but without increasing the overall size of the device. However, it is also true that the onscreen buttons take away size to the display, like the Nexus 4, which reduces its 4.7 inches to about 4.5 or 4.4 because of the headband occupied by the buttons.

Among the expected specifications of Galaxy S4 we find a screen of 4.99 inch Super AMOLED (1920 x 1080 pixels), processor Exynos 5450 Quad-Core 2.0GHz, 2GB RAM, Mali-T658 GPU, 13-megapixel rear camera, 2-megapixel front camera and Android 4.2.1 operating system.

But how did this photograph appeared? The picture would have been leaked by someone with access to inside information on Samsung, although since it’s not official, it would have to be taken with tweezers.

What do you think? Real or fake?
