Samsung Galaxy S4 13-Megapixel Camera Used to Take New Pictures?

Pictures allegedly taken by the camera on the Samsung Galaxy S4 surfaced on the internet this week.

The photos surfaced on Picasa web and according to the benchmarks posted on the site, the smartphone will feature a better resolution of 2322 x 4128 pixels. This supports recent rumors which state that the Galaxy S4 will feature a 13-megapixel camera.

However, the photo allegedly taken by the camera is nothing impressive and is most likely a fake given that the detail and overall quality of it is very poor and not up to speed with most 8-megapixel cameras, let alone a 13-megapixel one.

The Galaxy S4 seems to be popping up everywhere lately as a device that could be the Verizon variant of the handset showed up in another benchmark report earlier this week.

The smartphone in the benchmark features a 1.9GHz Qualcomm processor paired with Adreno 320. This would contradict some of the recent rumors which point to the device having the latest Exynos chip. Surprisingly, the device is not running the latest build of Android and there is word that the Verizon model will not launch until May. The device was originally expected to make its debut at this year's Mobile World Congress.

The popular South Korean site DDaily recently stated that Samsung has made a decision on the final specs for the device and that the company is ready to put it into mass production.

The Galaxy S4 will feature a "minimum organic" human-centered UI that debuted on the Galaxy S3. This means it will retain the trademark home button along with the Return key to the right and the Menu key to the left.

DDaily also shot down the rumors which pointed to Samsung implementing the S Pen into the Galaxy S4. However, the device will probably feature "non-contact gesture." The publication pointed out that many insiders have mistakenly said that this non-contact feature means there will be an S Pen, but that is not the case.
