Samsung Galaxy S4 Fast-Tracked, Bad For iPhone 6 (Rumor)

By  | 

There have been a lot of rumours going around about the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S4 and when the handset might be released.

Samsung Galaxy S4 release date rumors

May 2013 should be the month when the Samsung Galaxy S4 is released based on the S2 and S3. However this time rumors suggest Samsung will be bringing it in as early as February at the Mobile World Congress event.

So why would Samsung want to rush out the Samsung Galaxy S4 after sticking with the same schedule all these years? One school of thought is that it is because they wish to keep their current position in the market. The Samsung Galaxy S3 is currently the best-selling smartphone of 2012 but there is no telling how it will fair in 2013 as it ages and more rivals arrive.

There are also rumors that the iPhone 6 may return Apple to its WWDC schedule and launch in June 2013. If so, Samsung will have another solid headstart over Apple with next year’s sales numbers if the Samsung Galaxy S4 can launch early enough.
