Images Taken from the Korean, AT&T, and Sprint Galaxy S4?

February 7, 2013 - Written By Alexander Maxham

Well it looks like we are seeing the first images taken with the camera on the Galaxy S4. HDBlog.it has came across some pictures posted to Google+ that are taken with three different variants of the Galaxy S4. These include the Korean, AT&T and Sprint variants. If you look at the EXIF data, you can see that there’s the AT&T version (SGH-I337), the Sprint version (SPH-M840) and the Korean Galaxy S4 (SHV-E300S). Images from the Sprint and Korean versions were uploaded yesterday, while the AT&T version was uploaded today onto Google+. And they say Google+ is a ghost town?

All-SIV

The EXIF data in these pictures also show that the images were not taken at the maximum resolution. One of the images is of a Samsung calendar on a desk, and in another there is a keyboard in Korean characters. It looks like these images could have even been taken at Samsung’s HQ which is in Korea. But remember, this is just like a leak or rumor and to take it with a grain of salt as EXIF data is very easily manipulated.

The rumored specs of the Galaxy S4 include:

  • 4.99-inch Super AMOLED HD Full HD display
  • Exynos 5 Octa CPU, Mali T-658 GPU
  • 2GB of RAM
  • 13MP rear-facing camera; 2MP front-facing camera
  • Android 4.2.1 – Jelly Bean, Touchwiz

You can check out the images below, and clicking on them will show you the full screenshot from Google+ including the EXIF data. Going back to the model numbers shown above. In the past, devices for AT&T have always been SGH-I something. For example the Galaxy S3 is the SGH-I747. Now the Sprint Samsung devices are always SPH- something. So these could indeed be Samsung Galaxy S4 for both AT&T and Sprint. Now where are the T-Mobile and Verizon versions?

What do you think of these images? Are they good enough for a flagship device with a 13MP camera? Remember these are zoomed in a bit and not at full resolution.
