No device in hand, but I will have definite info tonight. "Sammy" just called
Not sure what to think about this. But when/if you have anything worth actually sharing please do let us know
For those that do not know me...I have had the great opportunity in the past few years to hold in my hands just about every flagship smart device that Samsung has offered, weeks-months prior to their release.
S2, Skyrocket, Note, Tab 10.1, Note 10.1, s3, Note 2 the Samsung LTE enabled camera etc.
I received a call tonight that I should be at a place at a time and this is what I have for now
Ok..preface...the following contains no information from Sprint, or Sprint sources. I have seen no information leading me to believe or providing release dates specs or anything at all from Sprint, my employer. The following information is from a trusted source close to or within Samsung.
Sprint and Verizon are getting some sort of Note tablet, and soon. I was told 10.1, but could possibly be 8 or I could see both.
On to the good stuff.
Just about all that you have read or seen in the last 24 hours is true.
Snapdragon processor seen in photos is likely correct. (though could change prior to release, they have done it before)
Reps have been given specific instruction that NO benchmark apps are to be downloaded to the devices.
5" display. Similar design to the Note 2 but less rounded edges from what can be determined.
It is "rumored" that phones exist and are kept under lock and key until after the announcement. They can not leave the building currently. You can bet once they do I will get one in hand.
There are tons of new features and apps... gesture controls...the smart phone is getting scarily smart at recognizing what you are doing and responding without you even touching the phone
The phone will have RF for controlling Samsung media devices such as TV and such.
An optional worn device can track vitals and work with an app within the phone..health type junk.
multiple home screen/lock screen options not present before
so on and so forth.
the real meat won't come until I can get the device in hand.
I am going to link screen shots...not my work...just the information I was able to confirm.
more to come......
this is what a lunchbox phone looks like...a phone encased in resin to hide the true design/shape
New photos of Samsung's Galaxy S3 prototype with home button appeared ~ Samsung Galaxy S3 Blog
links on specs of the s4.

Pay no attention to the supposed pic of the phone...it is my belief that one is fake.
That was a lot to read...
These are the already-available Note 10.1, Note 8 that hass been announced already, too.
So what about some real information that has not already been posted to the net?
Not on Sprint network
I confirmed speculation ...and will have a device in hand just as I did with the past devices. Sorry...no reason for me to have to explain myself beyond that....my posts in the past with other devices speak for themselves with in depth details and pictures prior to anyone else having them.
We shall see...
Only have to be patient for another 72hrs now
Can you confirm if the pictures released today of the Chinese variant S4 with dual sims looks anything like the actual real life phone?
I'll admit that I don't understand most of the specs and how they compare to the S3, but from what I can see, it all sounds intriguing. I'd imagine the real good stuff will come once Thursday hits.
I really don't see a major upgrade from the S3. The whole eye detect and scroll is not a seller to me. I don't see what they can pull out of the hat to wow me at this point. In other words it wont be a day one pre-order for me with the S4 like it was for the S3.
Agreed. I don't even use the smart stay or motion software they have on the s3.
In that case I hope for a big sale and price dip on the S3.
Today's Chinese leaks, what's your view on those, o wise one?
Samsung officially gives us our first REAL glimpse of the Galaxy S4?
Mr. Ed can you confirm ?
Pretty disappointing if true. More like the Galaxy SIIIS.
Am I the only one who actually likes the design of the S3? I'm glad they're advancing that design personally.
Aside from the slippery feel, I like the design of it too
Finally! I feel like I'm on my own with this, went on The Verge and all the comments were just calling the design ugly. Personally I find the S2 ugly. I just like going against the grain I guess
I would like to see a big price cut on the SIII off contract! I am not going to sign a new contract with Verizon and lose my Unlimited Data...
