It all started with an innocent question asked on Facebook by Anthony Ghattas from Lebanon, who was curious to know when is the Samsung Galaxy S4 release date in his country. In a bizarre fashion Samsung Lebanon, delivered, saying that “the smartphone will not be launched before than Mai 2013.” Then all the tech blogs and publications started to gossip about the Samsung Galaxy S4 release date…
A few hours after the Samsung Galaxy S4 release date leaked, Samsung Lebanon officials returned with another reply, saying that their affirmation was based on the fact that the Galaxy S models were traditionally launched in April – May time frame, adding they have no knowledge of the exact Samsung Galaxy S4 release date.
Not even the most optimistic Samsung fans were expecting a debut at CES 2013 or Mobile World Congress 2013, events where the South Korea-based company is a bit shy about new smartphone products. Samsung Galaxy S4 will most likely be unveiled during another Unpacked event, in late Q2 or early Q3.
Some voices are saying that Samsung Galaxy S4 will not be able to withstand the heavy pressure of the super smartphones that will be launched at CES and MWC, but many of the terminals announced at the two aforementioned tech events are hitting the market after 2 – 3 months, so they aren’t having the upper-hand on Samsung’s flagship.
Moreover, if the Samsung Galaxy S4 is as powerful as the rumor mill claims, then the South Koreans have no reason to fear the new smartphones launched at the Las Vegas-based and Barcelona-based fairs.
Rumor has it that Samsung Galaxy S4 will sport a 5-inch full HD display with Super AMOLED or OLED technology, plus a mighty Exynos 5 Quad processor based on four Cortex A15 cores at 2.0 GHz. Reports say that the super-smartphone will also boast an octo-core Mali-T658 GPU and 2 GB of RAM. The internal storage options will probably be the same: 16, 32, 64 GB while the primary camera might be a 13 megapixel unit.
Samsung Galaxy S4 will most likely come pre-loaded with Android 4.2.1 Jelly Bean, and we are eager to see what Samsung will do with TouchWiz this time. Are you ready to get your hands on the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S4, or are you considering other high-end Android smartphone options, as well?
