We’ve seen a lot of potential Samsung Galaxy S4 release dates being speculated by the tech blogs, but the latest reports are indicating that the next flagship of the South Korea-based company might arrive sooner than expected.
The yet-unannounced Samsung Galaxy S4 is seen by many analysts as one of the smartphones that will set the standards on the Android market. The next flagship is expected to set a new level, both in terms of hardware configuration and Android customization, showing the world where the smartphone business is heading.
As the rumors about Samsung Galaxy S4 release date and technical specs are floating the interwebs once we stepped up in 2013, the latest reports are indicating that the highly-awaited smartphone might be announced in March.
All the sources hinted that the new high-end smartphone will be officially announced at Samsung’s Unpacked event, that will be held in New York this year. According to a Korean website, the Samsung officials are already making the preparations for the Samsung Unpacked event that will be held this March.
JK Shin, head of Samsung Mobile, has recently confirmed that the Galaxy S4 will be announced “soon.”
As I mentioned above, the Samsung Mobile Unpacked event will be held in New York, but it seems that it will be held simultaneously in London and Seoul.
As confirmed by some AnTuTu benchmark logs, Galaxy S4 will boast Samsung’s proprietary octo-core Exynos 5 Octa chipset unveiled earlier last month at CES 2013 in Las Vegas. Rumor has it that the device will come with a full HD 4.99-inch display and that it will run Android 4.2 Jelly Bean out of the box. The camera sensor might also receive an upgrade, from 8 megapixels (currently on the Galaxy S3) to 13 megapixels.
Summing up, we might see the Galaxy S3 coming earlier than expected. But would an early launch bring any benefits for the South Korean company in their battle against Apple and the next iPhone iteration? We’ll have to wait and see.
