Barring any last minute surprises, the Galaxy S IV will land in the U.S. on March 14.
Samsung is planning a press event to introduce the next Galaxy device on March 14, 2013, in New York. We know this because Samsung posted a teaser for the event on its Twitter page with a tagline that reads, "Ready 4 the show?" along with a URL for a livestream (www.youtube.com/SamsungMobile). And lest there be any lingering doubt, Samsung's chief of mobile, J,K. Shin, confirmed at Mobile World Conference that Samsung is indeed gearing up to announce the Galaxy S IV next month, according to Edaily, a South Korean news site.
That's as much as Samsung was willing to confirm at this time; the rest of what we know about the Galaxy S IV is based on rumors and leaked information. It's said to have a 5-inch Full HD 1080p display, 2GB of RAM, 2MP front-facing camera, 13MP rear-facing camera, and Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean.
It's been nearly a year since Samsung launched the Galaxy S III, its current flagship smartphone. Back in January, Samsung said it had sold 100 million Galaxy S III devices.
