Galaxy S4 rumors have provided just about every bit of information about the handset except how it will actually look.

Samsung took the liberty to give fans a sneak peak on its Twitter page leaking a teaser image in which the Galaxy S4 can be seen in a shadow. Judging from its appearance, the new smartphone will closely resemble its predecessor, the Galaxy S3.
"The countdown for #TheNextBigThing has begun. Who's ready for the Global Unpacked Event on March 14?" said Samsung on the Samsung Mobile U.S. page while posting this picture together with the message.
The Galaxy S4 hardware specs may not be the selling point of the smartphone when it makes its debut later this week, however.
Special features seem to be what Samsung hopes will differentiate the new device from competitors who can match their processor. SamMobile recently revealed another one of these features that will be included on the Galaxy S4.
The first is called Floating Touch and it allows users to use their fingers to hover and view photos inside a folder of an album. This will be similar to what the S Pen can do on the Galaxy Note 2. Sony has had a similar feature on the Xperia.
The Galaxy S4 will also come with a new feature called "Eye Scrolling."
The New York Times reported this Wednesday, confirming that Samsung filed a trademark in Europe under the name "Eye Scroll."
An anonymous Samsung employee informed The Times of some details concerning the feature and how it will work. "Eye Scroll" will track the user's eyes to determine where to scroll by following their direction. Users reading articles on their device will not have to use their finger to scroll down.
