Leaked images of what appears to be the Samsung Galaxy S IV have surfaced on a Chinese forum, suggesting that the device will retain a similar look to its predecessor.

Published on Chinese forum 52Samsung.com, the images show a smartphone with the model number GT-I9502. The model variant leaked is believed to be a dual-SIM version specifically for the Chinese market.

While its unknown whether the leaked photos are legitimate, the images show a device that has a similar design to Samsung's Galaxy S III and Galaxy Note II smartphones.

The phone appears to have a new pattern etched into the glossy plastic that adorns the front and back, while the side shows a brushed aluminium-style look.

Curiously, two of the images show results from the Antutu benchmark app. The device in the images runs the latest version of Android, 4.2.1 Jelly Bean, is powered by a 1.8GHz quad-core processor, has 2GB of RAM and a 13-megapixel camera. It also has a full HD 1080p display, though the size of the screen isn't mentioned.

Dell XPS 13

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.
