I suspect that almost none of you will be surprised as rumors start to pop up discussing the next-generation Samsung smartphone, the Galaxy S IV. We know it’s coming, we’re sure it’s being worked on, so it’s just a matter of the what, when and where. If the newest rumor from SamMobile pans out, we should be hearing a lot more about the new flagship, known internally as “Project J” by next April. In fact, SamMobile believes that we could even see an announcement as soon as next April, which would mark 11 months since the launch of its predecessor, the Galaxy S III. It seems ideal that Samsung will continue with a one-year refresh cycle for their most popular smartphone, allowing them plenty of opportunity to improve the technology built into a device that has already sold more than 30 million units worldwide.
A Samsung company official told the Korean Times last September that the Galaxy S 4 or S IV will keep the “inspired by nature” design as its predecessor and possibly receive a bump from a 4.8″ to a 5″ display.
