Earlier this month, rumors hit the Internet that Samsung would officially reveal the Galaxy S IV smartphone on March 15th. Now there are new reports that the date has been set, but is one day earlier than the previous reports.
Well known mobile phone news leaker Eldar Murtazin posted this message on his Twitter page earlier today:
Save the date for a big announcement - March 14 :) And keep silence ;) HTC will miss HTC One sales again :( Like it was in 2012.— Eldar Murtazin (@eldarmurtazin) February 18, 2013
The "Tweet" was soon followed by an article on SamMobile.com which claims that the announcement is for the Galaxy S IV and that the reveal will be made at a press event in New York City, the location for quite a few technology product launches and events in the past several months.
Earlier rumors have the Galaxy S IV launching in parts of Europe first later this spring, followed a few weeks later by a US launch. 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) out of the box.
