Samsung is again readying a big launch for the month of May. The company which unveiled its flagship smartphone Galaxy S III in May last year, is reportedly launching its successor Galaxy S IV in May 2013.
The speculations have been fueled by a post from Samsung Lebanon on Facebook saying that the upcoming Galaxy S IV will not launch before May 2013. Facebook user Anthony Ghattas posted a question on Samsung Lebanon's page on the social networking website, asking, "Hey is there any news for the Samsung Galaxy S IV release?" The reply he received from the company was "The Galaxy S IV won't be released before May 2013."
The current flagship model Galaxy S III, was launched in May 2012, giving the device a full year before it is replaced as the top-of-the-line smartphone in the company's portfolio. Before that Galaxy S and Galaxy S II were rolled out in June 2010 and April 2011, respectively.
