According to a report, the Korean tech giant will officially unveil the Samsung Galaxy S4 in April. Furthermore, the new flagship is said to sport wireless charging.
SamMobile reports, “Samsung’s next flaghsip device built under codename “Project J” has now been changed to codename “Altius(J)”. The Samsung Altius will come in 2 colours black and white. Samsung will of course give the colours nicer names but we are currently unaware of them. Samsung is planning to ship the Altius starting from week 16, which simply means April 15. We expect Samsung to hold an unpacked event at MWC or sometime in March. Samsung could hold one of its mobile unpacked events in London, New York or even Korea.”
Speaking about the S4 sporting wireless charging, the site says, “The rumour about the Galaxy S IV having wireless charging is real! Samsung will sell a separate dock and a back cover with wireless charging capabilities for the device. Samsung will make the wireless charging kit available a couple of weeks later after bringing the device itself on sale. The back cover with wireless charging indicates that the next generation Galaxy S device will have a removable back cover, just like company’s current flagship device the Galaxy S III. As we are talking about charging we can also confirm the battery capacity of the upcoming Galaxy S device. Samsung’s next flagship device will pack a 2600 mAh battery, the Galaxy S III uses a 2100 mAh battery.”
SamMobile, however, isn’t sure if Samsung will name the upcoming superphone the “Galaxy S4”. It says, “Number 4 is believed to be bad luck in Korea. Samsung even changed the model number to GT-I9500.”
Samsung has remained secretive about its next flagship, so take this information with a grain of salt.
