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.

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
