March 15 tipped as debut date for Samsung Galaxy S4

A new rumor pegs March 15 as the launch date for Samsung's fourth generation Galaxy S smartphone, with retail availability kicking off in Europe first a few weeks later.

SamMobile reported Wednesday that Samsung is planning to announce the Galaxy S4 handset at an event tentatively scheduled for Friday, March 15.

While Samsung has yet to confirm such an event on that date, an unnamed "trusted insider" has spilled the beans on the c ompany's internal launch plans for the S4.

Should this rumor pan out, it means Samsung is likely to skip launching the smartphone at Mobile World Congress later this month, instead choosing to focus on its own solo event.

Worldwide debut

Samsung fans may have to wait just a bit longer than mid-March to actually get their hands on the Galaxy S4, rumored to be powered by an eight-core Exynos 5 Octa processor with Mali-T658 GPU.

The report claims the Korean manufacturer will first roll the handset out across Europe in early April, followed by Asia later in the month and continuing on to America, Australia and Africa in May and June.

Samsung's next-generation handset is said to come in black or white, sporting a 4.99-inch Super AMOLED Full HD display, 2GB RAM, 13MP rear camera for 1080p video at 30fps and a 2MP front-facing camera capable of shooting 720p HD videos.

Curiously, the Samsung Galaxy S4 is expected to arrive running the current Android Jelly Bean 4.2.1, rather than a newer 4.2.2 update Google is reportedly rolling out soon.
