Looks like we’ll have to wait till next month to finally get a concrete look at the Samsung Galaxy S IV. Eldar Murtazin of mobile-review has suggested that March 14th will be home to a “big announcement”, and that HTC will miss sales estimates on the One that’s expected to be announced tomorrow. The tweet didn’t specify any Samsung details, but the folks at SamMobile have claimed that the tweet was a veiled reference to the Galaxy S IV, that’s set to be unveiled in New York City.
Save the date for a big announcement – March 14 And keep silence 😉 HTC will miss HTC One sales again Like it was in 2012.

The rumored Galaxy S IV is said to feature Samsung’s new Exynos 5 Octa (8-core) CPU, a Mali-T678 (8-core) GPU, a 4.99-inch Super AMOLED Full HD display, and 2GB of RAM, running Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean out of the box. Camera-wise, it’s rumored to be rocking a 13MP rear camera that’s capable of shooting 1080p Full HD videos at 30FPS, while its 2MP front camera can shoot 720p HD videos.
Rumors are that instead of announcing the Galaxy S IV at the 2013 Mobile World Congress next week, Samsung will be outing a rumored Galaxy Note 8.0 instead.
