    Well of course this is more than likely just another fan rendered pic and specs. But I gotta say, it looks ok. I'm sure we'll have a lot more fan rendered pics in the coming weeks. Let the rumors switch into high gear.

    Looks better than the other leaked image that looks like the S3 sans physical buttons on the bottom.

    Glad they got rid of the big rocker type volume button I was complaining about on my Note 2.

    After my Lumia 800 had a cracked screen, falling out from the pocket while sitting - a 40cm drop - I would like the Gorilla Glass!

    Not really fond of the two tone face. It looks out of place

    You have to be joking. Many images, not of phones, show this same "two-tone" look. Marketing. Here is the Panasonic VT50 television.

    I assure you my Panasonic plasma does not look like that.

    Yeah I must be kidding myself! There's no possible way I could like the nearly mono-color of the current Galaxy line. God what was I thinking...

    I would like to see the speaker moved from the back if Samsung can do it and keep the phone looking good.

    My Nexus 7 is the same way. Opposite orientation as compared with my GS3. Annoying.

    Stupid rendering. Would be nice with the S4 had a metal chassis or at least rubberized

    Looks more like a 2012 HTC concoction than a Samsung one.

    Not a terrible mockup, but I think the S3 actually looks nicer than this.

    Hmm, I didn't realize that was a trend in the smartphone world.

    Looks like a HTC phone, not the design they've been heading in.

    Change Super AMOLED to LCD and it is a sale. Otherwize i would take the Xperia Z/ZL over it. AMOLEDs make my eyes cry.

    AMOLED makes my battery cry. Put anything but black on the screen and you can watch the numbers tick down.

    The new screen on the GS4 isnt going to be a Pentile screen. And black is supposed to save battery. You can also disable some Apps like Chat On, and some other built in bloatware and your battery will be a lot better.

    As has been shown by someone at the source article, this render dates back to December last year. A joke.

    That said, I cannot bring myself to buy a Samsung "plastic fantastic". I normally buy phones every two years and to be stuck with a cheap feeling phone like this for that period is not something I want to do (I don't sell my old phones). If they went with a premium feel and construction, like HTC or the upcoming Zperia Z, then I would definitely consider it.

    However, their model is so successful, I somehow doubt they will change until it impacts them in sales. And sadly, I don't see this changing in the near term.

    Many people would actually be incredibly displeased if Samsung stopped offering a removable back. Two reasons: removable battery and removable microSD card. People now really love having the option to throw in a new battery and be at 100% in a matter of seconds and to expand storage size. I don't blame them. The plastic back is worth the price for them.
