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?
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.
