No Samsung Unpacked event to be held at MWC 2013, Galaxy S IV bound to skip the show
Samsung may be readying as many as 8 new Android smartphones for announcement at MWC 2013, but the highly-anticipated Samsung Galaxy S IV will surely not be one of them. And that's not only because J. K. Shin himself said so – it turns out that Samsung won't be holding an "Unpacked" event at all, which makes those rumors of a March announcement for the Galaxy S IV seem a lot more credible now. Word comes from people "familiar with the matter" who spilled the beans for the guys at Pocket-Lint.
Of course, Samsung will still have its own booth at MWC 2013 where we bet that a whole bunch of Android gadgets will be on display. In addition to the aforementioned handsets, new Android tablets are likely to be announced as well, including the rumored Galaxy Tab 3 slates, along with the Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0. At least one of them is expected to sport a high-resolution display – 2560 by 1600 pixels, and we sure look forward to checking it out first hand.
But as for the Samsung Galaxy S IV, we'll have to wait a bit more before we get a chance to give it a go. Perhaps its maker needs some extra time to make enough of its Exynos 5 Octa chips, which are expected to debut in the rumored flagship, or those new, 1080p AMOLED display panels are slowing the process down. Either way, we sure hope that the wait will be worth it!
