The already speculated Samsung Galaxy S4 release date has just received a little more attention, with the latest report suggesting the device might be announced a tad later than previously thought. In the buildup to the MWC we’ve already seen so many rumors pertaining to several different gadgets.
Like HTC’s M7, the Galaxy S4 has found itself at the center of quite a passionate bit of speculation covering all sorts of things, right from its specs to the company’s suite of apps it will come with, and even exactly when it will be launched. But nothing of an announcement was mentioned, not even a whisper.
The last time we reported about the device, we said that an exact launch date was probably the only thing left to be leaked. As it turns out, there was another tiny detail waiting to find its voice. According to SamMobile, a trusted insider has confirmed that the phone is to get an official unveiling on March 15. What is still kept top secret though is the location of the event.
The site further states that it has received confirmation that the device will be launched sometime in the beginning of April this year. And this corroborates earlier leaks about a window for availability. The website dedicated to all things relating to the South Korean manufacturer further speculates that invitations to the announcement will be sent out just as the MWC’s curtains close.
But there’s more; the rumor is quite a detailed one. It goes on to say that the smartphone will be made available to eastern European nations first, with the whole of Europe and Asia apparently to get it before the end of April. Then, around May or June, it will be the turn of the Americas, Australia and Africa.
And finally, the speculation is brought around with a bit of information that points to a time frame for the handset’s accessories to come out. The post cites ‘week 15,’ which should mean sometime in the second week of April.
Whether or not the Samsung Galaxy S4 will be unveiled on the aforesaid date with a release soon after is still up for debate. All we can say with any certainty is that this is another aspect relating to the device to come crawling out of the woodwork. And with February’s MWC just a few weeks away, we’ll just have to wait and see what’s in store.
