If most rumours agree that Samsung will use a dedicated event to unveil its next flagship smartphone, they cannot agree on when this event will take place. According to SamMobile, which has proven reliable in the past, the event will in fact take place on March 15th. Its “trusted insider” adds that the Unpacked event will take place at a “still top-secret” location.

The report adds that event invitations will be sent out when the Mobile World Congress wraps up. At the event, Samsung will unveil the Samsung Galaxy S IV (model GT-I9500) in black and white variants. The Galaxy S IV will then go on sale in early April but not globally. It appears that North America will have to wait until May or June.

Reinforcing the April launch, a number of accessories, including a number of cases and a wireless charging kit, are expected to launch in calendar week 15 which just happens to fall in early April.

The Samsung Galaxy S IV is expected to come with Samsung’s new Exynos 5 Octa processor with Mali-T658 GPU, Android 4.2.1 Jelly Bean, a 4.99-inch Full HD (1920×1080) Super AMOLED display, 2GB of RAM, a 13MP rear camera and a 2MP front camera and a 2,600mAh battery.

Samsung to unveil Galaxy S IV at dedicated event after MWC 2013?

This one should not come as a surprise. Despite some rumours that Samsung will unveil the Samsung Galaxy S IV at MWC 2013, most have suggested instead that Samsung would use a dedicated Unpacked event much as it did last year with the Galaxy S III. You can now add CNET to the list for the latter hypothesis. According to “a person familiar with its launch plans,” Samsung will not make any major announcements at MWC 2013 and will instead hold a separate event for its latest flagship smartphone. This would certainly explain some of its recent announcements such as the Galaxy Express and Galaxy Xcover 2.

Most recently, Samsung used dedicated events to unveil the Galaxy S III and the Galaxy Note II (among others). It’s a growing trend among manufacturers who use such events to give their products as much attention as possible both from the media as well as consumers. BlackBerry did so this week for the BlackBerry Z10 and BlackBerry Q10 and HTC is holding an event on February 19th just days ahead of Mobile World Congress.

Most rumours expect that Samsung’s Galaxy S IV event will take place sometime between March and April.

Rumour: Samsung Galaxy S IV to be announced on March 4th

A screenshot obtained by SamMobile may have just revealed that Samsung will hold its next Samsung Mobile Unpacked event on March 4th, 2013. The leaked invitation indicates that the event will take place in Pyeongchang, Korea and that the topic will be none other than the Samsung Galaxy S IV.

Rumoured Samsung Galaxy S IV event

If accurate, it’s likely that Samsung would hold additional launch events in other countries as well.

Unfortunately, a closer look at the invitation suggests that this is no more than a fake. Would Samsung really the slogan “You think it was the Galaxy” to introduce its next flagship device? The incomplete sentence with the word “unpacked” not even being capitalized is an additional sign that the screenshot is not legitimate.

While it is possible that Samsung could unveil the Samsung Galaxy S IV at MWC 2013, a specific event for the smartphone is more likely. And if past rumours are any indication, it could happen anytime between now and May 2013.

As rumoured, Samsung will host a second Samsung Unpacked 2012 event in Berlin on August 29th. Invitations have now been sent out for the event. Bearing the tag line “When magical moments come alive”, the invitation (as usual) reveals little about what will be announced although that wand/pen might be a good clue.

August's Samsung Unpacked 2012

Past rumours suggest that Samsung will announce its Galaxy Note 2 “phablet” at the event. The latest generation of this smartphone/tablet hybrid is expected to come with a 5.5-inch display, a quad-core processor and Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. It could also sport LTE connectivity (as a dual-core processor variant) and a 12 or 13MP camera.

There is good news for those of us unable to attend in person: Samsung will livestream the event.

Samsung is also hosting a separate event in North America on August 15th. Conflicting rumours suggest that the Galaxy Note 2 will be announced at this event. It’s unlikely that it will use two major events to unveil the same product. It’s more likely that one event will focus on the Galaxy Note 10.1 tablet and the other on the Galaxy Note 2.

Samsung last hosted Unpacked events to unveil the Samsung Galaxy S III and the Galaxy Nexus.

Samsung has so far avoided naming the “Next Galaxy” device that it will unveil on May 3rd. Rumours have suggested that it may not be called the Galaxy S III as many expect. Samsung may now have put those rumours to rest by (accidentally?) revealing the “galaxy s3″ name in its description of its Unpacked 2012 event app.

That Samsung will unveil its Galaxy S III next week now looks like a pretty good bet…

SamsungSamsung may be unveiling more than just a new smartphone at its May 3rd Samsung Unpacked event. Citing “a source familiar with the matter,” CNet Asia is reporting that the manufacturer could also unveil a new 10.1-inch Galaxy Tab.

Unlike the upcoming Galaxy Tab 2 (10.1) that may now come with a quad-core processor, this model will sport a dual-core processor. No other details were given about it. Perhaps it will come with an HD display?

Samsung could also unveil its own cloud service called S-Cloud. It would offer users both free and paid music, movies and TV shows as well as the ability to upload their content.

Samsung continues “Next Galaxy” teasing with video

As expected, the countdown at tgeltaayehxnx.com (an anagram for “TheNextGalaxy”) ran down and thenextgalaxy.com went live. A teaser video is now live but reveals precious little. It ends promising that that the next Galaxy will let you “stand out from everyone else,” and suggesting that “everyone else” is sheep (does that include Samsung older device owners?).

Samsung will unveil its “Next Galaxy” device on May 3rd at its next Samsung Unpacked event.

Update: TheNextGalaxy.com and tgeltaayehxnx.com are both down. Unprecedented interest in the next Galaxy or the sheep rising to voice their displeasure?
