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.

RE: I hope those aren't real

I have a spare Sony Ericsson battery (BT45) and charger (EP900) for my Xperia PLAY 4G (R800at) and it has been extraordinarily useful.
Batteries wear out and lose their capacity over time/cycle. Being able to replace them is a good thing. Being able to swap distributes the effect over two batteries so that it will be twice as long before it begins to impact you (or less now that the spare will always get a full charge and the user is more likely to give a full discharge).
You forget that people are not always somewhere where they can charge and they often don't want to leave their phone unattended. Charging whenever for however long is you have is pretty bad for a battery.
I have a problem where my phone sometimes runs dead from full in a few hours when home near the microcell (glitch with the baseband, I assume). If I'm working in the yard and need my phone, I can't just leave it plugged in indoors. That spare battery lets me get things done.
Lastly, mine is a gaming phone with a gamepad. People call it "the PSP phone" or "the Playstation phone." The problem is, I can run a PSP dead without losing my phone, but I can't risk running this dead by playing games or I'll be stuck without a phone until I can return to a charger at the end of the day. With a spare battery, I can risk it and actually use my phone for the function that makes it special.
Next, this particular phone has a pitiful amount of internal storage (512MB). I have to root and use Titanium Backup to force a ton of apps to the 32GB SD card, but I still have routinely swapped. For example, coworkers often ask me what I'm watching. When they are interested, I hand them my SD card and they copy it to their phone, no computer required and no standing around losing battery power and time for wireless transfers. While I would prefer not to mess around with it when it comes to managing my own apps, I have to after even a few apps (most of the space is used by the ROM). Also, some games have several hundred MBs of additional data that they download to the SD card (FMV and recorded audio doesn't need to fill up my fast internal storage no matter if I have the room).
