According to Sam Mobile (usually a reputable source), a “trusted insider” has confirmed this date. The website also notes that the S4 will be available for purchase starting early April, first in Western European markets. Asia should get it before the end of April. North America, Australia and Africa are going to receive it in May or June. In the US, we should expect all major carriers (Verizon, AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile) to offer the new smartphone.
The Galaxy S III has been sold in more than 40 million units worldwide (in seven months from launch), and the S4 will probably be at least as successful as the older model.

Meanwhile, HTC is also getting ready to unveil a new flagship Android smartphone – the M7, which will be announced on February 19. Like the Samsung Galaxy S4, the HTC M7 will run Android Jelly Bean, featuring a Full HD display, and a quad-core processor.
