With its launch set to take place in just ten days time, rumours surrounding the Samsung Galaxy S4 are flying.
New images of the device have been ‘leaked’ by previously reliable rumour site evleaks, which shows of the device along with a number of its anticipated specs.
Taking a look at the rendered shots of the new device, the most noticeable change is the lack of a home button, which has long featured on previous Galaxy device – and most rival smartphones too.
The leaked S4 images also show the handset to drop its previously curved frame in favour of a rectangular body, which results in a slate-like frame.
In comparison, the rendered S4 appears slightly larger than previous devices, whilst similarly sporting a larger screen.
Spec-wise, the images are in-line with previous reports, indicating the device will indeed feature up to 2GB of RAM, a 13-megapixel camera and Android’s 4.2 operating system.
Interestingly, it appears Samsung will release the S4 in a number of modes with varying storage capacity, including 16GB, 32GB and 64GB.
A rumoured feature of the new device, which could give it the edge over rival devices in the smartphone market, is the inclusion of eye tracking technology.
The New York Times first reported the feature, which uses software to monitor the user’s eyes in order to scroll content on screen. Once the device senses the user has finished reading content on the current screen, it is able to page up content, negating the need for users to swipe manually.
However, many have been quick to label the feature as a gimmick. As touch capabiltis become the norm across mobile devices, manufacturers are keen to find new features, which are able to win over consumers. It would seem that Samsung has settled on eye tracking.
With only ten days to go until Samsung finally unveils its latest flagship smartphone at its Unpacked event in New York, expect the rumours to continue coming thick and fast.
