The HTC M7 and Sense 5 may be getting a lot of attention these days, but let’s not forget that Samsung is working on the Galaxy S IV. The majority of the phone’s details are still unknown at this point, but new information has been trickling in that suggests Samsung unveil its next flagship phone in March with an expected April launch date.
According to a “telecommunications industry” cited by Korea’s Asian Economies, Samsung will host an Unpacked event in the United States on Friday, March 22 to unveil the Samsung Galaxy S IV. SamMobile has also chimed in, claiming that Samsung will start shipping the Galaxy S IV in week 16 of 2013 (that’s the week of April 15 for those of you too lazy to pull up your calendar). New details regarding the phone’s specifications indicate the Galaxy S IV will ship with a 2,600 mAh battery. An optional dock and back cover with wireless charging capabilities will be available shortly after launch.
Samsung Galaxy S IV rumored specs
- Exynos 5 Octa (8-Core) CPU, Mali-T658 (8-Core) GPU

There’s no doubt that Samsung’s next flagship device will be a huge success, but we have a feeling things will be a bit tougher this year. Do you think that the Samsung Galaxy S IV will be as dominant as its predecessor? Or will Motorola, HTC, LG and Sony push Samsung around as they all try to eat away at Samsung’s market share?
