Galaxy S4 leak poses Note-like dummy case

This curve-cornered model, which looks like the Galaxy Note 2 except for the flash, is likely to be a dummy casing, disguising the final look of the new phone.

Just days before it's officially unveiled, the Samsung Galaxy S4 has appeared in new leaked photos, looking a lot like the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 -- for now at least.

Leaked shots at forum 52Samsung show a device apparently called the GT-I9502 -- but if this truly is the S4, don't expect it to look like that when it hits shops. This curve-cornered model, which looks like the Galaxy Note 2 except for the flash, is likely to be a dummy casing, disguising the final look of the new phone.

We're expecting a squarer look to the S4 rather than the curvy corners, as well as a slim bezel. Dummy casings are just one of the ways phone companies disguise the look of their hotly anticipated new devices.

Be sure to tune in to CNET's live coverage of Samsung's Galaxy S4 event, March 14 at 4 p.m. PT / 7 p.m. ET
