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.

MSI GS75

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

The MSI PS63 is an amazing laptop and I would definitely consider buying one in the future.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)

It’s useful for office tasks as well as pragmatic labelling of equipment and storage – just don’t get too excited and label everything in sight!
