Thanks to an early morning Tweet from Mobile-Review founder Eldar Murtazin, the internet is buzzing that Samsung may announce the Galaxy S IV as early as March 14th in New York City. Murtazin, a long time source for insider news has a mixed track record as of late, so it’s definitely a bit of rumor news we need to take with a grain of salt.
Interestingly enough, it was all the way back in September when a Samsung exec allegedly told the Korea Times that the company would launch their next-gen flagship in March. So, there is some cause to suspect that March is a practical timetable, but we’re still urging any Galaxy S IV rumors be taken with a grain of salt. More important is the idea that even if the device were to be announced in March, it’s possible we wouldn’t see the device arrive stateside for another month or two.
Rumored specs continue to include:
- 4.99-inch Super AMOLED FULL HD Display
- 2.0GHz Exynos 5450 Quad-Core CPU
- Mali-T658 GPU
- 2GB RAM
- 13MP rear-facing camera
- 2MP front-facing camera
- Android 4.2.1 Jelly Bean
