Doubling down with its April sale date prediction, SamMobile is reporting that Samsung will hold a March 15 press event to unveil the handset. Citing a “trusted insider,” the site said it should expect a presser invitation after MWC finishes. Here’s hoping — because there’s nothing sadder than waiting for an invite to the coolest party of the year and staring down an empty mailbox instead.
it looks like the Galaxy S4 will be absent at Mobile World Congress this year. Instead, the company will probably put on its own event just for the device, similar to what it did last year with the S3 in May.
It’s always interesting when rumors start ball-parking a release date, but SamMobile does one better and gives an exact date: Tax Day. Not only did the outlet report its launch day will be on April 15, it also said the phone will have a larger 2,600mAh battery.
A 5-inch 1080p HD display, Android 5.0, and a 13-megapixel camera? Several S4 rumors from news outlets like Asiae.kr are popping up, reporting that the new handset is going to get several upgrades in hardware and software. With these rumors, a lot of cryptic code names are being associated with the handset as well, including the stale model number “Samsung GT-I9525” and the mysterious “Project J” label.
According to a “company official” cited by the Korea Times, Samsung plans to unveil the Galaxy S4 at this year’s Mobile World Congress. Held in Barcelona, Spain, in February, MWC is a popular and global tech conference where many mobile companies debut their latest devices.
