We’re well into 2013 now, and as such, we’ve got announcements left and right by way of the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. At the top of the news pile from the event is Samsung’s (sort of) announcement that their new flagship phone, the Samsung Galaxy S4 will be launched on the 14th of March this year. The news comes from a few sources, most notably CNET that has confirmed through a high-raking Samsung suit that the device will be launched at the March 14 event for which they received an invite. This is likely one of the bigger announcements this year, and in true Samsung stye, might very well have stolen the spotlight from the other devices set to be announced at the international event this week.
The rumored specs for the S4 include an eight-core Exynos Processor with a discrete eight-core GPU, a 4.99-inch AMOLED screen, 2GB of RAM, a 13-MP rear camera and 4.2.2 Jellybean. There is no report on pricing as yet, so I guess the Korean Giant is saving a little bit for the MWC proper. Stay posted, we’ll let you know the latest as soon as we have more news.
