We didn’t quite believe it when it was making rounds on the internet, but now Samsung’s JK Shin confirms it. The Samsung Galaxy S4 will be announced on March 14.
Samsung will be announcing their flagship earlier than we expected. According to the report, they will do it in Samsung’s Unpacked even in New York, to gain the support of US carriers and to battle Apple on their own ground.
Last January, we wrote about Why the Samsung Galaxy S IV won’t be unveiled till May. Tackled in that article was also Samsung Lebanon’s statement that the next flagship won’t be released until May. There could be wordplay here. Announcing something and releasing something are two different things. Samsung might unveil the Galaxy S4 this March 14, but it won’t be available till May.
Just lately, it was reported that the phone will not feature Exynos and AMOLED anymore. As the announcement draws closer, the lines continue to blur. Samsung could be struggling to compete with the likes of the HTC One.
