Rumours are circulating that the Korean manufacturer could be preparing post-MWC launch.

The Internet is awash with rumours today that Korean handset manufacturer Samsung is set to bypass MWC (Mobile World Congress) and launch its Galaxy S IV smartphone on March 4th.

An allegedly leaked image has surfaced on SamMobile.com of an invite to Samsung Mobile Unpacked 2013 from one of its Korean members. It also says that the Galaxy S IV will be introduced in Pyeongchang, South Korea.

The website also claimed that it had been given a tip-off from a Samsung insider, stating that the Galaxy S IV will feature a 2GHz quad-core processor and run Android’s 4.2 OS. Furthermore, the source suggests that it will come with a 4.99-inch Super AMOLED HD touchscreen, 13-megapixel rear camera and two-megapixel front camera.

While the reports are thus far unconfirmed, they do echo last year’s launch of the Galaxy S III, which saw the firm snub MWC in favour of launching the device at its own event on May 3rd 2012.
