The Korea Times reports that Samsung Electronics plans to unveil the latest in its Galaxy line, the Galaxy S4, at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona in February and is expected to hit shelves globally in March at the latest, which is just nine months after the May debut of the Galaxy S3.
“The official said that the smartphone, due out nine months after the May debut of the Galaxy S3, will be more than enough to curb Apple’s latest iPhone, compatible with long-term evolution (LTE) networks.”
“In Europe, Samsung is gaining a bigger share of the smartphone market. The Korean company was involved in patent disputes with Apple in Germany, the Netherlands and the United Kingdom. A recent ruling in the U.K. said Samsung didn’t infringe on Apple’s design patents.”
The phone is expected to support LTE and sport in-house Exynos-branded application processors and quad-core chips. The OLED display will reportedly increase to 5-inches in size from 4.8-inches.
