A Samsung Galaxy S4 release date is expected to follow sometime between April 15 and 22.

With reports of an inbound flexible display widely rubbished, recent Samsung Galaxy S4 rumours have suggested the handset will play host to a 4.99-inch 1080p Full HD display alongside 2GB of RAM and the CES 2013 unveiled Exynos 5 eight-core processor.
