Samsung Galaxy S4 cases leak ahead of smartphone reveal, show off design features

Galaxy-S4-case-top.jpgWe’re sitting on the eve of the Samsung Galaxy S4 launch, and now we’ve got our first glimpse at the covers we’ll be able to wrap our slinky new Samsung smartphones up in.

MobileFun have revealed the first leaked range of colourful cases, provided by a source that’s “98-percent trusted. Though unbranded (these won’t be official cases by any means), if they’re accurate clothing for the new flagship Android phone, they do reveal some information about the design of the handset.
Galaxy-S4-case-mid.jpgFor instance, contrary to earlier reports that the Samsung Galaxy S4 will feature a squared-off design, the cases suggest the S4 will have a more curvaceous chassis. This rings true with the teaser image provided by Samsung yesterday, that seemed to show a curved-edged Galaxy S4 hidden in shadow.

Other small details are also revealed; there is a cut out for a headphone jack on the top, not bottom of the device; the loudspeaker looks set to sit on the lower left handside of the handsets rear; the power button appears to sit on the right hand side while the volume rocker sits on the left. Also, the camera flash now appears to be directly underneath the camera lens, shifting slightly from its positioning on the Samsung Galaxy S3.

All will undoubtedly be revealed tomorrow, but at least it seems that if you don’t like the design Samsung have gone for, cases in all the colours of the rainbow will be your to choose from.

The Samsung Galaxy S4 launch event kicks off tomorrow night at 11pm GMT. We’ll bring you coverage throughout the night, so keep checking back for more news.

    The cases seem to show the same camera and flash design that the recently leaked Galaxy S4 has. The camera cutout looks bigger to hold the 13 megapixel camera that’s rumored. One other feature I’m so excited for is the 1080p display that I could really use. The trip to and from work at DISH can take some time, so I like streaming my live and recorded shows while I’m on my way there. The DISH Anywhere lets me do so, and I’d like streaming on a higher resolution display since I can stream anywhere I go.
