Samsung Galaxy S4 to be revealed next February

Rumour mill starts turning on iPhone 5 rival, the Galaxy S4

Samsung will announce its Galaxy S4 smartphone in February at Mobile World Congress.

We’ve only had the Galaxy S3 for a while and the iPhone 5 was revealed last week but eyes are already turning to Samsung’s Galaxy S4. The smartphone and arguably iPhone 5 rival will arrive next February, according to The Korea Times which cites ‘company officials and local parts suppliers’.

"Samsung is ready to unveil the next Galaxy smartphone, the Galaxy S4, at early next year’s mobile world congress (MWC) in the Spanish city of Barcelona," said an official from the firm asking not to be identified.

The Galaxy S4 already has some possible specifications including a Samsung Exynos processor and a 5in screen, up from 4.8in of the S3. It will also support LTE networks for 4G mobile broadband like the upcoming Galaxy S3 LTE. Android is likely to be the operating system of choice one again.

It was expected that Samsung would reveal the Galaxy S3 at this year’s MWC. However, the firm decided to wait until afterwards to hold an Apple-style event solely for the S3 in London.

"Samsung wants to keep its one-year product schedule and the Galaxy S4 will be the first to match that strategy. The S4 will see some external changes but retain its popular rectangular shape with rounded corner concept," said an official from one of Samsung’s local partners.
