Photographs taken from Samsung’s upcoming flagship smartphone have popped up on Google+. At the time writing this post, the privacy settings of these photographs were changed, making them inaccessible to us.
These images were taken from two different versions of Galaxy S IV – one meant for South Korea ‘SHV-E300S’ and other for US telecom operator AT&T ‘SGH-I337’. As these images were not uploaded at their maximum resolution, we can’t really use them to confirm the megapixels count of camera in Galaxy S IV; however they did reveal that camera will support aperture opening till at least f/2.2.
Although there is no way to authenticate these images, the objects in the pictures suggest that these images were probably taken in Samsung’s properties, like the Samsung desk calendar in one image. Also, the change in the privacy settings of the images soon after the publication of initial news stories based on these, also makes us wonder, if these are indeed the real thing.
