The new Samsung Galaxy S4 is set to be one of the major phone releases of 2013 and as we edge closer to the general release of this phone we are beginning to see more information about the phone become available. The latest details come courtesy of Google+ where an image has been recently posted that is reportedly captured with the camera on this eagerly awaited new phone.
Google+ is one of the biggest social networking sites on the planet and over the past few days the site has seen an image uploaded that is said to be captured with the Samsung Galaxy S4 device. The subject of the image is a Samsung desktop calendar which leads us to believe that the image may come directly from Samsung’s main HQ although it is more likely that the leak is from a regional office of the company where security procedures are less strict. By looking at the EXIF information of the shot it is clear to see that the resolution is not at its maximum level as it is only registered as 6 million pixels. The information does tell us however that the focal length of the camera is 4.2mm which is an improvement on the 3.7mm that the Samsung Galaxy S3 offered. We also get an idea about the aperture levels of the model which are said to be f/2.2, once again an increase from the f/2.6 that the S3 boasted.
Looking at the EXIF information contained on these shots also tells us the possible names of two versions of the new Samsung Galaxy S4 handset. Apparently the South Korean version of the phone will carry the model number SHV-E300S while the AT&T version for the United States is also listed as being the SGH-I337. In a similar story also to emerge this week AndroidGreed.com are also listing the offical model numbers of certain versions of this handsets. Two US network versions are listed which are Sprint and Verizon and these models are set to be named SPH-D806 and SCH-V727 respectively. The international version of the new model will carry the name GT-i9500.
We will continue to keep you updated with the latest Samsung Galaxy S4 news as it emerges and with the release of the handset drawing nearer we expect lots of information to surface over the coming weeks.
