According to SamMobile, a site with a decent track record when it comes to Samsung leaks, the Korean electronics behemoth will hold an Unpacked event on March 15 to announce their new Galaxy phone, possibly named Galaxy S4. Invites will go out to members of the media shortly after this months Mobile World Congress conference in Barcelona. The location of this media event is still said to be kept under wraps.
After announcing the product in mid-March, Samsung will then have the new Galaxy available in European shops some time in early April. The U.S. rollout will then happen around May or June.
Some time around week 15 of 2013 (mid-April), Samsung will make the entire accessory lineup available which will include: Clear Cover, Flip Cover, Protective Cover, Pouch, Extra Battery Kit, Wireless Charging Kit, HDTV Adapter and Headset.
The new Galaxy is expected to run under the model number GT-I9500 (internationally) and arrive in two colors – black and white.
What do you think? Are you willing to buy this latest rumor? In the past, Samsung hasn’t had its new Galaxy flagship device out before May, so an April launch does seem a bit surprising. Then again, they may need to put something out to help them continue on with their massive quarterly earnings numbers. Then again, the Note 2 is still fairly fresh.
