Samsung might just be looking to skip launching its next generation flagship Galaxy S IV at next month’s Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. If reports are to be believed then an insider has been credited with this spoiler, who mentioned Samsung is planning to launch the Galaxy S IV at a separate special event. This is surely going to take a lot of fizz out of the MWC if it turns out to be true.
The source also mentioned that the Galaxy S IV has been tipped to be launched on March 15. Samsung has neither confirmed not negated this news which means there is a fair amount of chance this could just turn out to be true.
Samsung at all probability will be launching the Galaxy S IV in Europe in the first phase of roll-out. This will be followed by releases in Asia. Finally in the last phase of the roll-out the Galaxy S IV will be released in North America, Africa and Australia. So it could be early April when a user finally gets to have the new flagship Galaxy S IV in his hand.
Spec-wise it makes an impressive reading for the Galaxy S IV. Rumored to be powered by an eight-core Exynos 5 Octa processor with Mali-T658 GPU the Smartphone will have a giant 4.99” screen with Super AMOLED Full HD display, 2 GB of RAM, a whopping 13 megapixels rear camera capable of shooting full HD movies in 30 fps (slightly better than cinematic 24 fps) and a front facing 2 megapixels camera that is capable of shooting 720p HD movies. For users who love to work and play this is a great phone. However, the Galaxy S IV will not have the latest (yet to be launched) Android version 4.2.2 but come with the current 4.2.1 Jelly Bean.
