Besides a new iPhone the Samsung’s Galaxy S4 is one of the most anticipated phones of 2013. With the success of the S3 it is no doubt people will be lining up for an S4 on release day. It seems all but official now that we have both the launch and release dates for the Samsung Galaxy S4, code-named “Altius”. According to Asian Economies News, the S4 will be launched at a Samsung Mobile Unpacked event on March 22 and then released on April 15th.
This lines up with Mobile Word Congress (MWC), which is to take place March 25-28 in Barcelona. This makes sense as Samsung will launch the phone a few days before and showcase it at MWC. The April 15th release date is speculative according to SamMobile. A second release date of April 22 at 10:45am has been floating around as an leaked image (above) claiming to be the Galaxy S4 that date on it.
