Carrier Apparently Expecting Samsung Galaxy S IV for April
Some of the rumors surrounding Samsung’s anticipated Galaxy S IV have been looking to the phone launching in March, or possibly in April. We’ve heard a couple specific dates thrown around, but haven’t yet had much reason to place an abundance of faith in any one claim. We’re still not quite to the point where we can really narrow down the range for just when Samsung might release the GS4, but a new leak at least helps reinforce those rumors that the phone might come out sometime in April.
An internal document from New Zealand carrier Two Degrees Mobile spells out the details of an incentive plan for its employees, keeping track of sales from the start of February through the second week in April. At the close of the contest, winners will be getting a “Samsung S4”.
To be fair, there’s no promise that the handsets would be available straight away, and Two Degrees could simply be basing this off of the same rumors we’ve been hearing, but considering this is coming from a carrier, it does carry a bit of weight to it. There’s also the chance that winners might not get their phones until May, during an event in Auckland, adding a little more uncertainty.
Last year, Samsung announced the Galaxy S III on May 3. As we start to close-in on springtime, expectations are high for the company to schedule another one of its Unpacked events. All that remains to be seen now is just when that will be.
