The success of its Galaxy S II and Galaxy III smartphones has set the bar high for the next-generation flagship smartphone. According to Korean website Money Today, the manufacturer has set itself the goal of selling 10 million Galaxy S IV handsets per month, right from its launch.
As a comparison, it took the Samsung 50 days to ship its first ten million Galaxy S III smartphones while the Galaxy S II required five months to do so. Since then, the Galaxy S line has topped sales of 100 million units.
The Samsung Galaxy S IV (or Altius) is expected to come with a 4.99-inch FHD display, a 1.8GHz eight-core Exynos 5 Octa processor, Android 4.2 Jelly Bean, and optional wireless charging. It is expected to be unveiled at a Samsung Unpacked event in either March or April (although some rumours suggest a MWC announcement).
The report also adds that Samsung has a wide range of tablets in development. Aside from the already rumoured new 7-, 8-, and 10.1-inch models, we can expect to see 12-inch and 14-inch tablet models. There is no mention of an ASUS Transformer-like 13.3-inch tablet with optional QWERTY keyboard dock.
