Samsung Galaxy S IV rumored to launch in April

Samsung's Galaxy S III smartphone has been so well received globally that many have raised their expectation for the S III's successor.  While no one likes to wait, it seems like Samsung may launch the Galaxy S IV in April, and people will see for themselves if the next Galaxy S device can live up to all the hype.

Many believe that Samsung will not even hint at the current development of the Galaxy S IV at Mobile World Congress, much less unveil it.  However, according to rumors, the South Korean tech company will launch the Galaxy S III’s successor at the end of April to Asian and European markets, while North America, Australia and Africa will get their portion come May or June.

Also, according to Sam Mobile, Samsung will officially announce the Galaxy S IV on March 15, which is about half a month after MWC.  Press invites for the unveiling event will go out some time after MWC.

Spec-wise, the upcoming Galaxy S IV is purported to boast Samsung’s Exynos 5 Octa (an “8-core” chip) that will provide more than enough horses to pull any apps and multitasking features thrown at it, but at the same time have power saving features built-in that will keep the horses at bay when not needed.  A Mali-T658 GPU will take care of the graphical end of things on the 4.99-inch Super AMOLED 1080p display.  Other rumored specs include a 13MP rear shooter (2MP front), 2GB of RAM, as well as Android 4.2.1 Jelly Bean to boot.
