It’s not long since Samsung revealed their Galaxy Note 2 handset, but already we may be about to see the next big thing from the Korean tech giants. Sources are now claiming that they’re lining up an earlier than anticipated reveal for the Galaxy S4.
According to the Korea Times, an anonymous Samsung rep has spilled the beans that the company are planning to launch the Galaxy S IV in February 2013 at the MWC Barcelona mobile show, and follow it up with a March 2013 release date.
The leak also suggests screen size could get even bigger – jumping to a massive 5 inches – while LTE networking and quad-core processors would also feature.
However, with the Samsung Galaxy S3 only having been revealed in June, March 2013 seems a little too soon even for an industry that’s got no problems making a dive for your pockets on a yearly cycle.
Still, with the iPhone 5 already toting up 2 million pre-order customers ahead of its instore release, perhaps Samsung feel the need to push ahead a little earlier than usual.
