If you’re a loyal follower of Android in Canada, you’ve been privy to all the rumours concerning the specs and release time frame for the device. We anticipate Samsung announcing the S IV at their Samsung Unpacked event on March 15th with the phone hitting stores sometime in April.
According to Sammy Hub via Korean site DDaily, Samsung has recently begun production on the device’s 4.99″ 1920×1080 AMOLED display, sporting a pixel density of 440ppi. To give you some sort of idea how insane the display will be, Apple’s “retina” displays on the iPhone 5 are 326ppi. The S IV will be beautiful.
Apparently, DDaily’s got a very trusted source on this one, and the news only confirms the S IV’s rumoured launch time frame. Clearly, the company is going to sell millions of the S IV, and they’re definitely going to need a couple of months here to get ready for release.
So, another day, another update on the S IV. It looks like we’re getting very close to seeing the “next big thing” rather than reporting about hearsay. The Galaxy S IV is going to arrive months before Google’s next Nexus or X Phone and it looks like its only competition will be the HTC M7 and Nexus 4. One can only wonder whether Samsung’s 2013 flagship device will be good enough to sell more than the 50 million S IIIs the company sold in 2012.
