The Samsung Galaxy S4 rumour-mill is in now full swing, with another industry deepthroat abreast of matters at Samsung Town claiming the handset will launch after mid-April.
According to Geeky-Gadgets, the Galaxy S4 will hit store shelves sometime between April 15th and 22nd, citing a source “close to a major UK retailer” who has reportedly been on the money with release gen in the past.
This tallies neatly with a tip received by Sam Mobile last month that the S4 will be launched in the 16th week of the year – i.e. April 15th. A Korean news outlet also claimed that Samsung will likely announce the handset on March 22nd at a press conference it’ll allegedly hold “at Apple's doorstep”.
Meanwhile, a leaked document detailing an incentive program at a New Zealand mobile retailer reveals that all winners will also be given a Galaxy S4 handset.
The deadline is set for April 8th, which suggests to us that the S4 will be released soon after.
The sequel to the huge-selling Galaxy S3 is rumoured to sport even bigger 4.99-inch display with a full HD resolution and 440 pixels-per-inch density that will – on paper at least – wipe the floor with the iPhone’s Retina display.
Although Samsung remains tight-lipped regarding its roadmap for the year, it’s clear the Galaxy S4 is going to play an instrumental role in the company's bid to extend its current dominance of the global smartphone market.
The S-giant is reportedly setting itself an ambitious target to sell 10 million Galaxy S4 units every month and with the kind of marketing muscle it flexed for the S3, we can’t see why it can't achieve that aim.
