Covering Android news is always going to come with a lot of rumors attached as well, it might not be to everyone’s tastes but it’s something that a lot of us get pretty excited about. If there’s a smartphone launch that is going to be surrounded by rumors more than anything, it’s Samsung’s Galaxy S IV. We saw it with the Galaxy S III and after the success of that smartphone, there’s no doubting the excitement and speculation that will continue to swirl around the mysterious phone right up until its launch.
Rumors are one thing but, they often don’t come with a lot of weight and they can be easily brushed off of your shoulder. However, every now and then comes a rumor that not only sounds right but, comes from a fairly reputable source. Eldar Murtazin, might just be one of those sources that carries a little weight in this game, he might well be a little crazy to some of you but, he’s been doing this for a while now and he always manages to get insight where everyone else is seemingly absent. Eldar has been on Twitter again and his latest tweets strongly predict that Samsung will be unveiling the Galaxy S IV on March 14th in New York.
Do I believe him? Not 100% but, it does sound pretty likely. After all, Samsung will want to capitalize on the success of the Galaxy S III, which is still selling pretty well. HTC are announcing their latest and greatest tomorrow and while we all pretty much know what’s coming, they might have a surprise or two up their sleeve. Last year, the One Series was announced by HTC quite a bit before the Galaxy S III and I wouldn’t be surprised if Samsung want to make that gap a lot smaller in order to catch all of those on the fence concerning HTC’s new device.
The rumor mill has had a lot to say about the Galaxy S IV but, we only really know one aspect of it to be true, there is going to be a smartphone from Samsung with a 5-inch display at a 1920 x 1080 resolution. Concerning the processor inside the phone, there’s been a lot of speculation as to whether it’ll be a 1.9 Ghz Snapdragon S4 Pro but with word that LG’s Optimus G Pro will be shipping with a Snapdragon 600, we’d think Samsung have something better up their sleeves.
We’ll find out in a month or so, I don’t think Samsung are going to wait with this one, regardless of how long we have to wait or what the S IV has to offer, it’s still going to sell like mad.
