Samsung Galaxy S4 Launch Event Set For March 14th (Rumor)


It would appear that we have some more details on the Samsung Galaxy S4 release date, we had previously heard that the Samsung Galaxy S4 would be unveiled at a press event in Moscow on the 15th of March, but now according to a new rumor for Eldar Murtzain, Samsung will be announcing the Galaxy S4 on the 14th of March at a press event in New York.

It is possible that Samsung has two event planned for the Samsung Galaxy S4 launch, one in New York on the 14th of the US version of the handset and one in Moscow on the 15th for the European version of the device, which would tie in with the rumors we have been hearing about one Galaxy S4 with an 8 core processor and one with a quad core processor.

Yesterday we saw a leaked roadmap for the Samsung Galaxy S4 which included a quad core Exynos 5440 processor, we suspect that this is for the US version of the device and the European version will feature Samsung’s 8 core processor.

The European version of the Samsung Galaxy S4 sis rumored to feature 4.99 inch Super AMOLED display with a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels, Samsung are also expected to debut their new 8 core Exynos Octa 5 processor in their Galaxy S4 and it will apparently come clocked at 1.8GHz.

Other rumored specifications on the Samsung Galaxy S4 include 2GB of RAM and a choice of either 16GB, 32GB or 64GB of built in storage, plus a 2 megapixel front facing camera for video chat and a 13 megapixel rear camera for photos and video.

As well as some impressive specifications the Samsung Galaxy S4 is also rumored to come with some new features, which include touchless gestures and some new eye tracking technology which is called Eye Scroll and Eye Pause.

One thing to note is that we previously heard that Samsung would launch the Samsung Galaxy S4 in the UK some time between the 15th and 22nd of April, we also heard that the Galaxy S4 would launch in the US in late May or early June.

If Samsung are announcing the Galaxy S4 in the US on the 14th I suspect they will actually release the device is the US a lot sooner than we had previously thought as a global release would increase sales of the device at launch significantly.

Samsung are probably going to release the Samsung Galaxy S4 in Europe and the US at the same time, making US customers wait a couple of months for the device is probably not what Samsung want this year, and we suspect it will launch in the US in April at the same time as the UK and the rest of Europe.
