A newly leaked Samsung Galaxy S4 picture has leaked online, outing the handset’s form factor and hinting that the eagerly awaited Samsung Galaxy S4 release date will be held on April 22.

Showing off a more squared form factor, when compared with the current Samsung Galaxy S3, the newly leaked Samsung Galaxy S4 picture has been spotted on photo sharing site Picasa, seemingly disproving recent Samsung Galaxy S4 rumours that the next-gen Android handset would not feature a physical home button.

Seemingly set to play host to the standard dedicated home button, the leaked Samsung Galaxy S4 image has added to recent Samsung Galaxy S4 rumours that the Korean manufacturer will increase its next-gen handset in size, showing the claimed handset towering over its iPhone 5 topping Samsung Galaxy S3 sibling.

As well as offering an indication in to the Samsung Galaxy S4 screen size, the latest image has hinted towards an April 22 Samsung Galaxy S4 release date with the device shown displaying the post MWC 2013 date.

Samsung Galaxy S4 Rumours

One of the most eagerly awaited handsets yet to be announced, a flurry of recent Samsung Galaxy S4 rumours have seen the far form confirmed device tipped to play host to everything from an unbreakable and flexible display to a button-less, entirely touchscreen interface. Whilst these reports have been widely dismissed, a number of Samsung Galaxy S4 rumours have offered potentially accurate insight into the handset’s specs sheet.

With a 4.99-inch Full HD 1080p Super AMOLED display seemingly given the nod, the Samsung Galaxy S4 is expected to once again increase in size with the Android powered handset also set to benefit from the CES 2013 eight-core Exynos 5 octa-core processor.

Pairing a premium processor with a further high-end collection of innards, the Samsung Galaxy S4 features list is said to be bolstered by 2GB of RAM, a 13-megapixel rear-mounted camera with 1080p Full HD video recording capabilities and a second snapper around front for video calling.

With the Samsung Galaxy S4 picture having teasing a potential April 22 Samsung Galaxy S4 release date, past reports have also tipped the mooted handset to touch down in April with Samsung expected to host a dedicated post CES launch event in order to avoid coverage competition.

I feel that the battery life of the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S4 is going to either "make," or "break" the phone. People are tired of having high-end phones with mediocre to average battery life. The Note 2 is so popular because of battery life being one of its many strengths. The new Galaxy S4 needs to have a battery that can at least be comparable (in terms of longevity) to the battery in the Note 2.

If Motorola can cram a 3,300 mAh battery into a regular sized phone with their Razr Maxx then, Samsung should be able to do it also. This is of course if the 8-core CPU eats into much of the space. I wouldn't be surprised (nor disappointed for that matter) if Samsung decided to go with the quad core CPU currently in the Note 2 for the Galaxy S4 and give the upcoming Note 3 the 8-core processor. Hopefully Samsung would have been able to tweak the new CPU so that it is an actual 8-core CPU and not a dual quad core.

Totally agree with your remarks on battery life. Big screen smart phones should be running 3000-4000 mAh+ batteries as standard and aiming for twice the longevity of the current crop, which is generally awful if you actually intend on using the smart phone like the mini computer it is. When the Razr Maxx came out I thought all manufacturers would follow suit, but no. They all seem reluctant to even offer the consumer phones with 'exceptional' battery life.

I'm bored with constantly having to keep eye out for plug sockets, buying chargers & external batteries!
