Sammy, as we know, is working on its Galaxy S IV smartphone and the device was rumored to be heading for a mid-2013 release. However, things don’t seem to work very well as it seems and it now looks like the company may have to delay the device. The reason being said is production hassles.
The Galaxy S IV is set to feature a 4.99-inch, 441 ppi screen and Samsung is having issues in mass production of the display. There have been problems procuring panels for the new handset from Samsung Display and the company has now turned to alternative screen tech manufacturer 3M. This has effectively brought about a delay in the launch date.
Earlier, rumors had suggested that Samsung will launch the device at Mobile World Congress in February, but now the launch of the Galaxy SIV is expected to happen only in May, 2013.
The upcoming Samsung Galaxy S IV will feature a quad-core ARM Cortex A15 CPU, which is the most powerful processor in a Samsung product. The device is rumored to come featuring a 13 megapixel rear camera, 4G LTE data speeds, and Android 4.2 Jelly Bean OS.
The Galaxy S III, the successful smartphone device from the company, is still selling successfully and is expected to turn more impressive after an Android 4.2 Jelly Bean update in early 2013.
Now, that could mean that Samsung isn’t worried too much about the delay in launch of the next gen S IV.
