Samsung may be ditching the natural curves of the Galaxy S3 in favour of the Galaxy S2’s more square-shaped design when it comes to their forthcoming Samsung Galaxy S4 handset.
The latest rumour surrounding the hotly-anticipated smartphone has come from a picture posted to Picasa, which has been sitting patiently waiting to be picked up for months. It shows what’s assumed to be an S4 mock up with straighter edges and corners sitting next to the curvy “inspired by nature” Galaxy S3.
For the true conspiracy theorists out there, the render even has a date on the screen showing Monday April 22. Could this be the Galaxy S4 launch date?
With no verified source for the image, it’s likely a Photoshop hoax in all fairness. But with the Galaxy S3’s design cues receiving a mixed reception, perhaps a marriage of both the S2 and S3’s design styles is the perfect compromise.
