More Galaxy S IV details leak

Samsung will be officially unveiling the new Galaxy S IV this Thursday. However, that's not stopping new images and details from leaking about the device ahead of the official unveil. New photos have turned up from China show a device that doesn’t mirror the design of previously leaked images.

However, the screenshots from the new leaked photos show that this device has hardware that matches up with previous leaks. This has led some to believe that this could be a prototype device used for carrier testing to protect the final design of the smartphone in the case of a leak (such as this one).

The screenshots show that the device is running Android 4.2.1 and has a full HD resolution 1080p display. The screenshots also show a 1.8 GHz processor, 2 GB of RAM, and a 13-megapixel rear camera.
 
The device in these new images is supposedly a dual-SIM version of the S IV destined for China Unicom.

I guess Apple needs to do better than having the first and second best selling handset, maybe they could be ambitious and aim to occupy the number three slot as well.

This is interesting BTW

Why are you quoting a pro-Apple website?

Apparently you aren't around much? That is his whole agenda. Propping Apple up like the good like puppet he is.

Because what you dismiss as a pro-Apple website is the site run by Horace Dediu who is considered to be one of the most perceptive and respected analysts of the mobile tech industry.

One of the outstanding aspects of Horace Dediu's work is is extensive use of sourced data to analyse the mobile tech industry and to reach carefully reasoned conclusions.

I often cite his work here and it often gets a similar dismissive response, similar to yours, from iPhobes and Fandroids. What's so consistent and telling is that not once, not on a single occasion, have any of those who rush to dismiss his work ever exposed a single flaw in his data, his sources, his reasoning or his conclusions. Not once.

In fact I challenge those who think his site is 'pro-Apple' to dissect any of his articles and show where he has made a mistake in the data he has assembled or the carefully reasoned conclusions he has reached. Go on I dare you :)

Here is a hint to help you: just saying it's wrong because you don't like the outcome does not in itself constitute a critique of someone's reasoning, you actually have offer counter reasoning.

He's also the most pro-apple analysts there is - even when every other analyst dogs apple and ditches their apple stock, there's good ole Horace to sing the praises and hymns of the apple doctrine.

People who often quote others generally lack the ability to form thoughts of their own.

So I note you didn't take up my challenge to logically take apart any of his arguments or challenge any of his data sources in any of his articles. Not liking it's conclusion is not in itself a counter to a piece of reasoning. Merely saying you don't like his conclusion means noting unless you can say why his conclusions are wrong and offer a counter line of analysis.

Why are iPhobes so intellectually feeble?

Yes, they do if they want to keep that title. Although that tittle isnt really a one to one comparison, since there is one iPhone released every year and many models of the better platforms... But you know that dont you? You just posted that to make it seem different than reality dictates.

Sounds impressive until you factor in that Apple are the only ones making iPhone handsets. When you have no competition in your own class, yeah, you're probably going to win.

You people are funny.

Apple makes handsets and competes against other companies that make handsets. Apple not only has the top selling two handsets, outselling the handsets made by any other company, but manages to sell those best selling handsets at a much bigger profit than any other handset maker.

This apparently is meaningless when assessing the relative success or failure of Apple's handset business.

The reality distortion field at full strength, plus clearly complete ignorance about how businesses actually work.

Right back at you... Sales and quantities mean nothing when we talk about market share when Android dominates... 5 to 1 sales gap that Android has over IOS is totally meaningless to you... Then suddenly they matter when Apple sells the most in a particular region in the quarter of their new product release?

Are you that daft, or is that you think we all are?

What an amazing in depth representation of this issue. See Jane. See Jane run.

My point was pretty logical. Apple makes one phone, ONE. Which you then compare to other platforms that comprise dozens and dozens of phones from different companies, all competing with each other and Apple. So when you say Apple has the single highest selling phone, well, duh?

All I did was put your statistic in context. Does that take anything away from Apple? No. I'm just framing the facts in a more fair and unbiased manner.

On that we are in total agreement :) I don't think you know what that term means, or who it was coined for...

Sorry but, whooosh.

You can't even understand a simple point.

If someone goes into a shop to buy a phone, they have a choice of say, iPhone, SG3, SG2, HTC One, whatever.

For them to select an iPhone, they have to believe it offers more than all of the other phones , exactly like any of the other models.

To try and claim that it's somehow easier to sell an iPhone because there's only one of them is flat out stupid. By that logic, someone can come out with a device called the Zonko 991 with a custom OS and 'well duh' - it will definitely be the best selling phone? How can you not see how idiotic that logic is?

All you're actually saying is that Apple has managed to distinguish itself in a way that none of the competitors has - by building its own OS and app store which offers more in some respects to what Android does. But that's part of their package, it's part of their offering, it's something they built and invested in. Every other company is free to try and do exactly the same thing. Because Apple leads in this area, it gives them a competitive advantage, but do not confuse that with not having to compete with every handset that any Android has to .

Its like this...

In the US , it is a very split political environment, liberals, independants, and conservatives. There are many, many different national news outlets most all of which lean liberal. There is only one that leans conservative, Fox news. Fox is consistently the most watched because it caters to conservatives. The rest of the country is split between a dozen other outlets. Are you with me so far?

Claiming that Apple sales are #1 is like claiming that Fox news is #1. Its neither a positive or a negative, as its not on the same scale. If you were looking for who watches the most news to see where the country is at politically you would incorrectly assume its Fox because it its the most watched, but you would be wrong. If you were looking for which single news outlet was most watched it would be Fox, but its meaningless to determine anything on a national level as its not a straight comparison.

If you are looking for what platform sells the most phones, its Android, by 5 to 1. If you are looking for what single phone sells the most its iPhone, obviously, because its the only one, like Fox news. To argue about real sales is pointless, they already happened and can't be changed. My disagreement with Tony is the double standard. When shown Android outsells IOS 5 to 1, he says sales #'s are meaningless... Then when its Apples turn, suddenly sales #'s matter again Apple is on top . See the hippocracy?
