In January, the fan site SamMobile claimed to have received an image from a tipster that showed a render of the still unannounced Samsung Galaxy S IV smartphone. Now that same website claims to have gotten word on when Samsung will make its official reveal of its latest phone in its flagship smartphone series.
The site claims that Samsung will hold press events for the Galaxy S IV on March 15th, otherwise known as the "Ides of March" if you are into history and/or Shakespeare as the date when Roman leader Julius Caesar was assassinated in 44 B.C. If this date is correct, that means Samsung is announcing the phone about two months earlier than it did with the Samsung Galaxy S III, which was announced in early May 2012.
The same SamMobile story today claims that the Galaxy S IV will go on sale in Europe and Asia before the end of April, while other territories like the US, Australia and Africa will have wait until May or June to get their hands on the smartphone.
Leaked, but unconfirmed, hardware specs claim the Samsung Galaxy S IV will have a 4.99 inch screen, Samsung's own Exynos 5 Octa processor, 2 GB of RAM, a 13 megapixel camera, and Android 4.2.1 (Jelly Bean).
