Samsung Lebanon says to expect the Samsung Galaxy S IV no earlier than May

This past week, Samsung Lebanon not only revealed the existence of the Samsung Galaxy S IV (as if everyone didn't know it was on the way), but also hinted as to when the eagerly awaited device would be released. On its Facebook page, Samsung Lebanon leaked out the news that the device would not be available before May. That might have been a surprise to some as there was some speculation that the phone could see the light of day as early as April.
wear the crown as the flagship Android handset, any news related to the device is important. Samsung Lebanon didn't quite see it that way however, noting that their comment about the Samsung Galaxy S IV not launching before May was not a secret because everyone knows that Samsung releases new Galaxy S models between late April and Early May. Samsung Lebanon really felt compelled to play down its comments and even stated that the leak was trivial.
After seeing the proposed specs of the Samsung Galaxy S IV, as well as a picture alleged to be that of the device, we would say that there is nothing trivial about the phone at all.

Of course it will be in may around that time. They will beat the iphone 5s in sales just like they did with the gs3 out selling the iphone 5/4s

gs3 doesn't come close compared to iPhone 5's sale, if you compared it to average sales per month.

S3 outselling the iPhone 5 about 3:1 in our stores,that's not even mentioning other android handset sales. Of course I'm talking about carriers outside of the us in Europe where iPhone 5 sales rush lasted about first 2 deliveries for us and then it ended. Android has the vast majority share outside of the US

galaxy s3 shipped nearly 35 million devices, could not find current iPhone 5 stats but at 1 point they were 3:1 behind in terms of sales, the release of iPhone 5 in new countries including china and other Asian countries i think have now put them back in front i think, but not by much, apple has a more established brand in terms of fan base but galaxy devices are closing in on that also, it is interesting what will come for the s4, i have had the iPhone and then the sgs1, sgs2, sgs3, sgs3LTE and as long as Samsung continue to impress and advance then i see no reason to change from there more user friendly, media friendly handset, as in my personal use the s3 beats the iPhone hands down for what i need it to do, obviously other people need there phone for different things and apple will be their choice

May is a good release date IMO. I will be skipping the IV and probably even the V, just got my S3 a few months ago at full retail of $700 so I'll be keeping it at least a couple years. And honestly, being that I don't use 70% of the features on my S3 I'm in no rush as it meets all of my needs.

If that's the real design or anything like it, I hope they have worked out distinguishing between finger touch and accidental palm touch due to the lack of bezel. Either way i can't wait to see what samsung has to offer

The one thing I am hoping for in the new Galaxy S is a real focus on the camera. Everything else about the device was great in the last iteration but I feel like the camera should be given more focus since we are seeing HDR cameras in other devices. I also wish the body was made out of a different material that hasn't been done before such as ceramic. Besides that, I would say the device will be stellar given the rumored specifications that have come out. It would be a real added plus if it came with the big.Little architecture in the form of 8-cores as some rumors suggest it may come with.

If they get rid of the ugly physical buttons, I'm all for it. Having on-screen buttons brings it closer to stock Android and maybe faster updates.
