Samsung has done an excellent job of keeping us in the dark regarding the forthcoming Galaxy S IV launch dates, but the folks over at SamMobile seem to have locked in an announcement date of March 15. However, previous reports suggesting that the Galaxy S IV would be available in stores by mid-April may not be dead-on. According to SamMobile’s sources, Europe and Asia will get the flagship Android smartphone in the beginning of April, while America, Australia and Africa won’t get their hands on the GS4 until May or June. The Galaxy S III, last year’s model, launched in Europe, the Middle East, and Asia before it hit store shelves in the U.S. The same is true for the Galaxy S II before it, so these rumors (while disappointing to us in the U.S.) seem to line up with historical evidence.
Rumor: Galaxy S IV Announced March 15, Available April-June
