Samsung Galaxy S IV to be announced on March 14

SGS IV
Longtime mobile editor Eldar Mutazin from mobile-review.com has taken to twitter over night to advise that March 14 will be a big date that could interrupt HTC Sales, referring to the release of the HTC One tomorrow morning in New York. Popular Samsung leak site, SamMobile has previously quoted March 15th as the date for the release of the Samsung Galaxy S IV and they’re also tipping this tweet from Eldar to be related to the launch of the Galaxy S IV. Eldar later goes on to say that the date will also involve New York with SamMobile also advising that they’re hearing the same thing.

TheVerge has now confirmed with sources that Samsung will be holding an event on the 14th of March to unveil ‘one or more new devices’ but has no confirmation that this is the Galaxy S IV. With Samsungs history of secrecy and mis-direction from last years launch of the Galaxy S III we know that the Galaxy S IV is most likely out being tested right now albeit in generic cases that most likely look nothing like the finished product.

The Galaxy S IV is rumoured to be running the Exynos 5 Octa CPU that was announced at CES earlier this year as well as using an in-house produced 4.99″ SuperAMOLED 1080P HD Display. The Galaxy S IV will also be rumoured to run a Touchwizified version of Android 4.2.2(Jelly Bean) right out of the box.

The Galaxy S line have been Samsungs flagship devices, with all their best technology being fed into their production, so it will definitely be interesting to see what the Korean giant has been up to for the last 12 months. Set your calendars and we’ll wait for the invites to start rolling out from Samsung.

Are you excited for the Galaxy S IV? What hardware do you think will be on-board the newest Samsung flagship?

I doubt Samsung will deliver on my wish list as they always seem to low ball in a spec or two (I think to ensure they always have something to improve next time), but hey maybe this time it really will be “best in class” But to get my $’s I want to see Fast performance and UX (I don’t care about the CPU specs per se but obviously the CPU and RAM are major players in a fast UX) Min 64 gb storage, but I’d pay extra for 128. Smartphones are media power houses today, but with no room… Read more »

I’m frankly surprised that nothing has been leaked yet so far regarding its looks or software… no Mr Blurrycam shots, nothing. Must be a torture having to work in Samsung mobile design team and not being able talk about it – reminds me of how the crew behind last year’s GS3 was admittedly pushed to their limits in maintaining secrecy on that project.

Same story with the GSIII. Samsung is the new Apple when it comes to keeping secrets. No phones left in bars either!

It would be very smart of Samsung to”leak” this info a day before HTC’s big announcement.

HTC’s problem is not samsung. Its themselves. Locked boot loaders, bloated Sense. continuous shifting of buttons(home button especially). and updates.(which is not as bad as it used to be but still has a long way to go.)

PERSPECTIVE. The percentage of mobile consumers that have even heard the term ‘Boot Loader’ or even know that it has anything to do with a phone is miniscule. Try it – try it with people you know who are not on this site. Ask them – ask them what they know about their phone. They could give you every single one of those things and their sales would barely bump. Samsung is the issue = they have 7 (or was it 8) of the top selling Android devices because people know about Samsung, they know of android as a concept… Read more »

I respectfully disagree with a lot of your comment. I think many consumers do know what Jelly Bean is, if for no other reason than because the mass media make a big deal out of the fact that your phone doesn’t have it, along with ‘fragmentation’ as the reason we should all buy Apple phones. Also, I think you’re forgetting that when the average person goes to buy a mobile phone, they turn to their tech-enthusiast friends for advice. And because HTC make decisions that displease me, I won’t recommend their phones. Sure, good marketing forms a huge part of… Read more »

Title suggests it’s a done deal… When it’s really a rumour at best..

I can’t wait, not that I’ll be buying it, I just can’t wait to see how it looks 😀

Sony, HTC, your stuff looks interesting… And then CRUNCH.

The next iPhone? Sorry, I couldn’t resist.

I own an SGS2, and am very happy with it. Even with 1080p and the 8 core CPU, nothing about the IV makes me really want it. Now if they include a DECENT pico projector …

Greg McPherson

They’ve got that power now. Yep, iPhone level muscle.

I don’t want one either to be honest. But by this time next year, a whole lot of people I know will own one.
