An image of Samsung’s upcoming Galaxy S4 has leaked online ahead of the device’s official launch date

An image of what’s said to be a press shot of the Samsung Galaxy S4 has appeared online ahead of the device’s official launch, which is reportedly happening in May.

'We can’t 100 per cent confirm if this is indeed the Galaxy S4 but the picture he sent us looks really sharp and doesn’t look fake at all,' reports Sam Mobile, the site that first published the image.

The handset in the image does look a lot like Samsung’s Galaxy S3 and Galaxy Premier devices, which certainly works in the source’s favour. Having said that it’s always tricky to say either way when dealing with leaks, particularly of this magnitude.

The handset in the image is also missing a Home button as well, which could mean that Samsung has ditched its traditional Home button setup in favour of a complete gesture-based UI.

Failing that it could just use Android's non-physical navigation keys just like the Nexus 4 and HTC’s rumoured M7 device, which is also expected to launch very soon.

Latest reports suggest Samsung will launch the Galaxy S4 in May.
