It’s been almost confirmed, several times, that the global version of Samsung’s new Galaxy S4 / S IV has the model number GT-i9500. So when a GT-i9502 shows up, it has to be a version of the S4, right?
Well, Chinese forum 52 Samsung claims the GT-i9502 is a dual SIM edition of the upcoming Galaxy, made for China Unicom. It also claims it has hands-on photos of it. These could be the first images to show what the S4 really looks like – but at the same time they might not present the final design of the handset.
As you can see below, the alleged Galaxy S4 GT- i9502 doesn’t look too different from the Galaxy S III. It’s just larger.
These leaked images allow us to see the GT- i9502 features Android 4.2.1 Jelly Bean, a 1920 x 1080 pixels (Full HD) display, 13MP rear camera, 2GB of RAM, PowerVR SGX 544MP GPU, and a quad-core 1.8GHz processor.
Samsung will officially announce the Galaxy S4 this Thursday, on March 14. We’ll see then if the leaked images actually depict a version of it, or not.
If a dual SIM S4 indeed exists, it would be the first time when Samsung puts dual SIM capabilites in a high0end, flagship smartphone.
