With less than 24 hours before Samsung's expected unveiling of the Galaxy S4, more images of the highly anticipated smartphone have materialized on the Web.

A collection of images on Chinese site Mobile.it168.com features a handset with the Samsung brand that resembles other images and videos that leaked earlier this week. The image also features the text "Galaxy SIV."

The accompanying description indicates that the smartphone sports an eight-core chip and a 4.99-inch screen, as previously rumored. The images feature a smartphone that measures 7.7 millimeters thick and weighs in at 138 grams.

The new flagship handset is rumored to be powered by the Exynos 5 Octa 8-core processor and feature 2GB of RAM, a 13-megapixel rear camera with 1080p video capability, a 2-megapixel front-facing camera, and the latest version of Android, known as 4.2.2 Jelly Bean.

Also rumored to be included on the handset is sophisticated eye-scrolling technology, though it will likely turn out to be simpler eye-tracking technology , like pausing a video when your eyes move away from the display.

Be sure to catch CNET's live coverage of Samsung's Galaxy S4 event on Thursday at 7 p.m. ET / 4 p.m. PT
