Samsung teases with Galaxy S4 image, looks suspiciously like Galaxy S3

Bad news if you're not a fan of the Samsung Galaxy S3 styling as the first official teaser from the Korean firm has revealed the hotly anticipated Samsung Galaxy S4 is set to sport a similar design to its plastic clad brother.

Samsung US posted the picture on its Twitter feed yesterday evening, coupled with the message: "The countdown for #TheNextBigThing has begun. Who's ready for the Global Unpacked Event on March 14?"

The handset in the image is heavily in shadow, with the top left portion basking in the eerie light revealing a volume rocker switch on the left and the same curved edges as the Galaxy S3.

Samsung Galaxy S4 - Official Leak

I can't hear you

We're not completely convinced that this is the real deal though, as there's no sign of an earpiece, front facing camera or sensors above the screen - with just the Samsung logo occupying this space.

There have been a handful of leaked images claiming to show the Galaxy S4 over the last few months, although none have been totally convincing but it seems likely that Samsung isn't going to be drastically changing its design ethos for its next flagship iteration.

Thankfully we only have a couple of days to wait until the Samsung Galaxy S4 is officially unveiled in New York and TechRadar will be there to bring you all the news as it breaks.
