Did Samsung Lebanon just let the cat out of the bag? In a reply to a post asking about the Galaxy S IV's availability, they have mentioned that the device "won't be released before May 2013". This is the closest so far that we have come to an official statement concerning the very hyped-about product. The smartphone has been previously slated for an April launch, which isn't too far off a date either. Previously, the Galaxy S III was announced and made available in May; therefore, it wouldn't be surprising for the Galaxy S IV to go official a couple of weeks before retail.
Either way, it doesn't seem like a long wait for fans looking to upgrade their smartphones since the smartphone is alleged to make an appearance at CES, albeit behind closed doors.
