Now, according to Russian journalist Eldar Murtazin Samsung is hosting a big event on March 14, 2013 and it is likely that one will see Samsung Galaxy S IV unveiled at this event. Earlier in the month, SamMobile had predicted that this device may be unveiled on March 15, at the company's special Mobile Unpacked event.
It is noteworthy, that Murtazin has been fairly accurate about Samsung's announcements in the past. So it is likely that he may be on to something even this time around. While his tweet this time doesn't mention the Galaxy S IV explicitly, SamMobile later replied that the tweet was indeed a reference to the impending Galaxy S IV launch.

TheVerge too is reporting that Korean smartphone maker is "definitely" going to launch something on March 14. It further goes on to state that Samsung will be unveiling one or more new devices at this event. Murtazin has also predicted that this event may be held in New York. One of these devices is likely to be Samsung Galaxy S IV and The Verge believes that the other device might be Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0.
As per past rumours, Samsung Galaxy S IV will feature a 4.99-inch Super AMOLED display with full-HD resolution, 13-megapixel rear auto focus camera, Android Jelly Bean and an Exynos 5 Octa chipset. The smartphone is also expected to support wireless charging. The company reportedly plans to sell a separate dock and a back cover with wireless charging capabilities for the device. The wireless charging kit is expected to be made available a couple of weeks later after the Galaxy S IV goes on sale.
Speaking of sales, past reports seem to indicate that the company is aiming to sell 10 million Galaxy S IV smartphones every month.
In his usual sarcastic style, Murtazin also taken a dig at HTC One and predicted that this smartphone too will not be able to meet its sales target.
