Samsung Galaxy S IV to be unveiled in March, available from April? Samsung Galaxy S IV to be unveiled next month, report says.
SamMobile cites a "trusted insider" in reporting that Samsung will officially announce the Galaxy S IV on March 15, but conceded that the location is still unknown. It also says that the Galaxy S IV will go on sale starting the second week of April.

It reports that the smartphone will launch in Europe and Asia first during April, then to North America, Australia and Africa between May and June.

The rumoured specs for the Galaxy S IV are an Exynos 5 Octa (8-Core) CPU, Mali-T658 (8-Core) GPU, 4.99″ Super AMOLED Full HD Resolution Display and 2GB of RAM, with a rear facing 13 megapixel camera capable of shooting in 1080p at 30fps, and a front facing 2 megapixel camera. It will run Android 4.2.1 Jelly Bean out of the box.

Hopefully they don't gimp this phone's CPU in the US, as they did for the SIII. If not, it looks to be a very nice phone.

Just make sure to refuse to travel the idiot path the others seem to be taking.
Keep the micro SD card slot, allow us to replace/upgrade the battery when we like & keep allowing us to root the OS if we want.

The Samsung Galaxy S series are already market leading phones, no reason to imagine the next will be any different - so long as they keep them consumer friendly as they have so far.

I have been with the Galaxy series since the Epic, they're very user friendly (was my wife's 1st android, now she has the S3 like me) They beat out the Iphone and if it isn't broke don't fix it so hopefully they keep following that pattern. This should be a pretty impressive phone with the octo-core and all that ram, definitely looking forward to my upgrade in July. Their TVs might have some issues and overpricing but their phones are very solid. Keep it up Samsung and don't let Crapple sue you for this one because it can make calls just like the Iphone.......

I wonder what battery life will be like having all that power, the s3 battery just dissolves under demanding apps, and to use the "power saving" button is just pointless, bit like buying a lambo and getting someone to limit it to 20mph.
Hope it has better build quality than the s3 too.

I don't understand how your battery life isn't good. I use mine alot gaming and talking, it last all day if I start at 100%. I'm rooted using wicked sensations, but that shouldn't make a big difference. My wife is rooted with a stock rom and her battery life is good as well

Unrooted and my battery drains LAMF also, some days.


Someone told me once that theres a right and wrong, and that punishment would come to those
who dare to cross the line.
But it must not be true for jerk-offs like you.
Maybe it takes longer to catch a total asshole.

Have you considered rooting, it's all automatic now and takes less then 5 minutes? I'm sure you would be a lot happier without all the bloatware and also open it up to its full potential. Something to think about

My battery does make it through a full day, but if I hammer it by the time I go to bed its down to around 10%
I considered rooting but don't wanna make a brick out my new phone, android still fairly new to me after 3 yrs of jaikbreaking iphones.

Check out YouTube, they have videos that will walk you through the whole thing in 5 minutes. It's basically brick proof. It goes something like download the pack, extract, plug in your phone, start Odin, select the file that came with the package, hit start and your done. It's that easy, seriously.
