(NEW YORK) — The Samsung Galaxy S4, or IV, is coming — that much seems all but certain. But after a tweet from mobile-review.com’s editor-in-chief Eldar Murtazin Monday told us to watch for a “big announcement” on March 14, it seems we may now have a date.
Sources told The Verge March 14 is “definitely” the date, so it’s now looking more and more like we’ll be feasting our eyes on the Galaxy S4, the update to Samsung’s popular Galaxy S3 phone, soon. The leak of a supposed March 14 release date happened Monday, just one day prior to the New York City HTC event, where the new HTC One was unveiled.
Samsung has surpassed the other Android phone makers in terms of market and mindshare. In January, Samsung reported that it had sold over 40 million Galaxy S3 phones since launching the device in May 2012. The phone, which has a 4.7-inch, HD Super AMOLED display and an 8-megapixel camera, released on all four major U.S. carriers in June. According to the rumors, the next version of the phone will focus on software features rather than hardware.
