It should come as no surprise the Samsung Galaxy S IV is coming. The only question was whether or not it would rear its head at the upcoming Mobile World Congress alongside competitors like the HTC one. Apparently not.
According to The Verge, sources say it is definitely coming on March 14 at a Samsung event.
The rumours started with a vague-but-not-too-vague tweet by mobile-review’s Eldar Murtazin that implied something was going down on March 14, and that it would negatively affect sales of the upcoming HTC One.
Unnamed sources have now confirmed to The Verge that there is such an event, and that it’s a Samsung shindig in New York City where the successor to the Samsung throne, the Galaxy S IV will be revealed.
The announcement is said to focus heavily on features over pure specs, apparently the jump from the Galaxy S III to the Galaxy S IV will be “larger” than that of the Galaxy S II to the Galaxy S III. So far we’ve only manage to see a crappy photo, allegedly of the new Samsung handset and nothing else. Expect to learn a whole lot more come March 14. [The Verge]
