Many sites are currently indicating a launch date for Samsung’s Galaxy S4 and it might not be where and when you expected.
After a tweet posted by mobile-review’s Eldar Murtazin, one of the biggest Russian telecom websites, suggested that Samsung would be announcing something big on 14th March, The Verge has now confirmed, based on information from sources close to the matter, that Samsung will be revealing at least one new device on that date.
It is suspected that one of the devices is the Galaxy S4, which is anticipated to be revealed at the upcoming Mobile World Congress.
Save the date for a big announcement – March 14 And keep silence HTC will miss HTC One sales again Like it was in 2012.

Details of the event including its location have yet to be revealed by Samsung, however Sammobile, known for leaking Samsung information has “confirmed” that the event will take place in New York City.
A number of reports have speculated about the various specs of the Galaxy S4. In addition to the device possibly being the thinnest smartphone ever and not running on Android it has been rumoured that the S4 will include hands-free gesture control and S-Pen functionality.
A document purportedly leaked by a Korean financial services firm claims the Galaxy S4 will boast a 5-inch 1920×1080 display, quad-core processor and run 2GB of RAM.
Other reports claim that the processor will in fact be an ARM-based Qualcomm model equipped with no less than eight cores and running at 2GHz.
