Rumours about Galaxy S4 release and specs

Galaxy S4

The Samsung Galaxy S3 was a winner for 2012, so everyone has high expectations for the S4. But one of the big questions on peoples’ minds is how it can possibly top one of the best phones of last year, as well as compete with what Apple will surely be bringing to the table in retaliation?

In years gone by it was typical for Samsung phones to be released at the MWC mobile event, held every year. However, thanks to the oomph that the S3 has given the brand, the S4 will, without a doubt, be given its own special sparkly launch event before June.

There is speculation floating around (thanks to a slip-up on the tech-giant’s Facebook page) that the big reveal will be happening in the second quarter of 2013 (potentially May), which would place it squarely before the rumoured iPhone 5S release date in June 2013.

Already there are lists online of the supposed specs of this new phone, and from the looks of things the S4 will not be a disappointment:
