Less than a day ahead of its official unveiling, more leaked images have virtually confirmed the design of the Samsung Galaxy S IV Android phone.

First discovered by US website The Verge, the images published on Chinese website mobile.it168.com are identical to earlier leaked photos of the device and confirm that the Galaxy S IV will retain a very similar look to its predecessor.

The new handset is designed in line with Samsung's Galaxy S III and Galaxy Note II smartphones, utilising a similar plastic construction with removable back cover.

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. The latter appears to be the most significant design change.

The description of the leaked Galaxy S IV confirms it will be powered by a 1.8GHz Exynos 5410 Octa processor and 2GB of RAM, while the 16GB of internal memory will be expandable by a microSD card slot.

The Galaxy S IV will measure 7.7mm thick and weigh 138g. It will come with a 4.99in display with a full HD 1080p resolution and will also have a 13-megapixel camera, an upgrade from the Galaxy S III's 8-megapixel snapper.

The leaked images show a dual-SIM device, but this is likely to be a version specifically for the Chinese market.

The leaked information makes no reference to the rumoured eye scrolling feature but the Galaxy S IV will come with a feature called 'Air View Finger' . This feature will allow users to hover their finger over the screen to preview selected information on the phone, such as a video thumbnail or a calendar entry.

A similar feature is included in Samsung's Galaxy Note II Android phone but only works with the S Pen stylus, not a users' finger.

Samsung will officially unveil the Galaxy S IV on Thursday 14 March (Friday 15 March, Australian time) at a press event in New York.

STYLISTIC Q702

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

STYLISTIC Q572

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.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
