The first picture of the Samsung Galaxy S4 leaked onto the internet earlier today.
SamMobile, a blog that normally reports on all things Samsung, posted an exclusive photo of what it says is the Galaxy S4.
Judging from the picture, Samsung will not include a home button on the device, and the side bezels appear to be virtually non-existent. This means the device will mostly utilize on-screen buttons, eliminating the need for physical ones.
The Samsung Galaxy S4 could be unveiled by the company as early as January, as it is planning something big for this year's Consumer Electronics Show, set to take place the first month of 2013.
Samsung released a teaser video early last month that hints at an important event with a major announcement with a product that will change the world at CES. This event is set to take place on Jan. 8.
The video stated that Samsung promises to introduce "something new" and it also has other words and phrases flying around such as "innovation," "ideas," "design" and "technology."
Samsung is rumored to be introducing its new YOUM flexible OLED displays and they will already be installed on specific devices. The company is also expected to give the world a first look at the highly anticipated Samsung Galaxy S4.
More and more rumors seem to be surfacing regarding the Samsung Galaxy S4 specs, as the device is now supposed to feature an unbreakable screen.
Samsung is reportedly working on something called "Project J" that would have them release smartphones with unbreakable screens by April of next year.
Mark Newman, an analyst at Stanford Bernstein in Hong Kong, weighed in on Samsung's plans, confirming that a flexible or unbreakable display will make its way to a Samsung flagship device in the near future.
"Eventually, they'll (Samsung) have unbreakable and flexible displays," he said. "Either the Galaxy S4 or S5 will have unbreakable and even possibly flexible and foldable displays by 2014. That's going to be a game-changer."
