    Well, this one look to be the DUO ( dual slim ) chinese version, well we will know if it is a proto or if the S4 is right like that.

    Many rumors, and like allways many things was not on the S3..

    I dont know if he mean about the specs or the design..

    Pholed 5" display ( 1080x1920 ) ?

    I was interested first in the S4 too but i'm glad i bought the Note II instead, its a hell of a phone, so i guess i don't miss that much features of the S4, there will definitely something ported over to the N2. On the Paper the S4 is too much overkill and 1920x1080 on a phone? i don't know my father owns a Xperia Z and i can't really see that much difference from my 1280x720 to his 1920x1080 in terms of sharpness.

    Thats more promising if its prototype! not too bothered about plastic. Infact i like it, its makes phone lighter and harder to smash compare to a glass.

    Guess we have to sit tight and wait!

    Me too, but looking the numbers of phone they need to products and the rythm of production, they cant got the same problems have got Apple, HTC and other with "metal" like cases, i think they will surely not goes with it.

    Look like they plan to allready sell 10millions of it the first month. Without even have it available in all country at this time.

    Look like all specs leaked are confirmed, with some addition.

    Damn, it remember me the S2.. look like they have put absolutely all they can find in it.

    I can safely say after watching that and not really getting any information, I was put off by that complete train wreck and I wont be buying one purely on the back of that crap, how can I support a company who does that?

    What really pissed me off is they didn't make a distinction over what hardware was going into what version. Will the 4G version have the Exynos? Will it have the 544mp3? If the 4G version doesn't and it has a snap dragon adreno 320, it's failed right there...

    ALL version are 4G/LTE internation or not.. Now the soc for US should be S600, the Exynos Octo for the International with the 544. ( lets wait confirmation, i still dont understand why they use 2 versions ).

    Dont forget, for Samsung, this " unpacked " is just a teaser, a presentation.. the real launch is coming then with more details. They do it allways in 2 tiimes . They are maybe Korean, but they have largely adopt the US marketing method lol .

    It depends on the region.

    They even said during the presentation that the 4G LTE version would launch later this year.

    And yeah the conference was terrible. I personally wanted solid launch dates, prices, more info on the hardware. I don't care for google replicated samsung branded features. "PICTURES WITH SOUND" it's called a video.

    Whether or not they would have problems with a metal casing depends on the type and quality of metal used. Apple used low quality aluminum for the iPhone5 which resulted in problems
