Rumor pegs April 2013 for the launch of Samsung’s Galaxy S IV handset

UK: Samsung's own 3,000 mAh battery for Galaxy S III available for pre-order for 39.99 GBP

Samsung’s line of Galaxy S handsets have been wildly successful for the Korean manufacturer. This streak of hits may continue in 2013 with the launch of the rumored Galaxy S IV. The latest leaked information from South Korean sources suggest Samsung is prepping to launch the S IV in April 2013.  The same rumor hints that the S IV will launch with support for the S-Pen, one of the best features of Samsung’s line of Note devices.

The next generation Galaxy S handset is rumored to have a 5-inch 1080P AMOLED display, a quad-core Exynos processor, and a 13-megapixel rear-facing camera. The inclusion of the S-Pen could bulk up the device and make it slightly thicker than the current S III. From this latest leak, the S IV is shaping up to be a mini version of the Note II.

  • I just hope the battery is something like the Note 2, i love the fact that i can run my Note 2 with all the extras turned on like live wallpapers, location etc and not have to worry about making it to the end of the day.

  • If this is accurate and Google’s Android keep up the awesomedevelopment, I see an even bigger problem for IPhone. ( I am a fan of both) Well done Samsung!
