We’re in countdown mode to Samsung‘s event in New York City tomorrow, during which the Korean company will launch its highly anticipated Galaxy S IV smartphone. The handset has been the source of numerous leaks and rumors (which you can check out in the Timeline after the jump), the latest of which has appeared just hours ahead of its unveiling on the Chinese forum it168.
The alleged Galaxy S IV featured in the leak, which you can see in the gallery below, is said to be a dual-SIM sample model. It first appeared on it168 earlier this week, but the latest round of images give a better look at the handset, including a handful of specs to go alongside the new batch of pictures.
The plastic backing on the phone features a crosshatched texture, while the home key is said to be embossed, with the entire unit measuring in at only 7.7mm in thickness and weighing 138 grams. The screen is an expected 4.99-inch full HD 1080p display, and inside there’s a reported 8-core 1.8GHz Exynos 5410 processor accompanied by 2GB of RAM.
The internal storage is a decent 16GB, and there’s the ever-present microSD slot for expansion. The battery has a 2600mAh capacity. Also revealed were a few software features, the most interesting of which is the ability to hover a finger over a portion of the display to pull up an S-pen stylus effect. Are the specs spot-on? We’ll find out tomorrow at Samsung’s event in NYC, which we’ll be covering live, so stay tuned!

GLBenchmarks for five new, unannounced Samsung devices have surfaced, including model GT-I9150/GT-I9152. Recently, benchmarks had surfaced for Samsung’s GT-B9150, as well as several other devices. Four of the five new devices that have cropped up are Galaxy devices comprised of the Galaxy Pocket 2, the Galaxy Star, the Galaxy Young, and the Galaxy Frame, in addition to the GT-I9150.
We’ll start with the oddball, the GT-I9150, which features a 1.2GHz BCM28155 Broadcom processor, as well as a VideoCore IV GPU and a qHD display (960 x 540). The handset is listed as running Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean, and includes the 9152 model. This is followed by the Galaxy Pocket 2, which features an 850MHz Broadcom processor, a VideoCore IV GPU, and a 320 x 240 VGA display. The handset runs Android 4.1.2.
The next three models, the Star, Young, and Frame, are all Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean devices. The Star is shown as running a Speadtrum CPU and Mail-300 graphics, and also bearing a 320 x 240 VGA display. The Young is a tad higher on the specs list, with a 1GHz Qualcomm and Adreno 200 GPU, as well as a 480 x 320 HVGA display.
Next up is the Galaxy Frame, which runs a 1GHz Broadcom CPU and VideoCore IV graphics, and likewise bearing an HVGA 480 x 320 display. The big difference with this model over the others is that it is listed in two iterations, one of which includes NFC technology. No other information is available at this time.

Budweiser’s 2013 Super Bowl ad featuring our famous Clydesdales horses is out! The company shows off their newest foal, who was just 7 days old during the shoot.
Football stars from Michael Strahan to Hakeem Nicks have appeared in the National Milk Mustache ‘got milk?’Campaign print ads for the past 17 years. As the campaign continues to evolve, the team begins production on its first Super Bowl TV commercial to appear in the biggest football game of the year.
The 30-second spot stars Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, who has managed to successfully balance his tremendous professional career with his family life, which continues to be his main priority. Johnson’s success as an actor, producer, athlete and author has gained him worldwide recognition both in and out of the spotlight.
The ad is directed by Peter Berg , actor, director, writer and producer best known for his on-screen role in “Chicago Hope” and who just wrapped production on the film adaptation of “Lone Survivor.” Created by Deutsch, A Lowe and Partners Company, the ad will air in the second quarter of the game and bring to life how including milk’s protein and essential nutrients at breakfast helps fuel active, successful days.
“Where better to kick off a new strategy designed to educate American families about the importance of starting your day with milk at breakfast than with one of America’s favorite family-friendly actors during one of America’s largest family-friendly events,” said Vivien Godfrey , CEO of the Milk Processor Education Program, which represents America’s milk processors and runs the National Milk Mustache ‘got milk?’ Campaign.
“It’s the perfect platform to reinforce milk’s powerful nutrient punch – including the 8 grams of high-quality protein provided in every serving. Milk in the morning helps the whole family tackle the day.” Godfrey added, ” Dwayne Johnson is a terrific role model and a devoted father who believes in the importance of milk at breakfast for the whole family. He’s been vocal about his love of milk and it being a good source of protein in the morning – so we felt he was a natural fit.”
More than 2.7 billion gallons of milk are currently consumed at breakfast in the U.S. each year. The new morning meal-focused commercial is part of a larger, integrated effort to reinforce milk as the breakfast beverage of choice and spotlight its nutrient contributions as part of a daily breakfast routine. The effort includes in-store retail and consumer promotions along with extensive digital advertising and social media activity. Consumers will also have the chance to help America’s milk processors direct $ 250,000 in Fuel Up to Play 60 grants to schools across the country to help give kids greater access to a healthy breakfast.
On Thursday night’s “Parks and Recreation,” some Indianapolis Colts showed up to make a character’s dream come true. Andy Dwyer, as played by Chris Pratt, never had a bachelor party before his wedding (for which he wore a Reggie Wayne jersey.) Jim Irsay, Andrew Luck and Wayne show up at Lucas Oil Field to give Dwyer the best bachelor party ever.
Though Luck and Irsay did a good job, it was Wayne who stole the show as he told Dwyer it was a little weird to get married in a Colts jersey. If you’re a Colts fan, this is a good reason to start watching “Parks and Rec.” (If you’re not a Colts fan, you should still be watching “Parks and Rec.” It’s a great show.)
Ahead of Google’s Android event on the 29th there’s additional confirmation of a storage upgrade for the Nexus 7, as 32GB units have now been spotted on shelves at US retailers. Seemingly dead-set on matching the LG E960 “Mako” Nexus G for the title of worst-kept secret, we’ve received this photo of a tag for the new unit at a Sam’s Club (with a placeholder price). Reports on Android Central and The Verge also mention hardware spotted at Staples locations, with one person actually succeeding in buying one. All of that follows a listing on the Staples website and one Japanese buyer apparently receiving one early by accident. According to the tags and receipts, the new units are scheduled to go on sale the same day as the Android event, and at the same $ 249 price of the current 16GB model. Now that the alleged Sony Nexus phone has been exposed as a fake we don’t know if there will be any surprises left, but if you want to buy anything from Google’s brand then patience (or at least shopping around) is probably your best strategy.
