Samsung has a few Samsung-made smartphones that are gaining a lot of traction with each day passing, and one of them includes the highly speculated Galaxy S4. Now there's more to follow on the device's potential arrival.

Per reports, while the Galaxy S4 has been tagged as a no-show at the upcoming MWC event set to be held in Barcelona this month, there is a high probability that the new smartphone might show up in an entirely separate launch event set for March 22 by Samsung.

The device, although in a state of rumors and doubts at the moment, is expected to arrive at a higher price as compared to its predecessors. While a previous CNET report stated that the Galaxy S4 will be unveiled at a later date, and not at the MWC 2013, the report also confirms that Samsung does not want to share the spotlight with other smartphones that will be released at the event.

It was also reported by Phones Review earlier, quoting an analyst, that once the S4 hits the market, there is a high chance of an "upgrade frenzy" to occur with the popularity of the smartphone riding high on the ones generated by its predecessors.

"Anthony Scarsella, Chief Gadget Officer for Gazelle.com spoke to Gotta Be Mobile about this and talked of the 'upgrade frenzy' that is likely to occur with the launch of the Galaxy S4. Scarsella forecasts that the Galaxy S4 will be so popular that many current iPhone users in the U.S. will switch to the Android platform on the release of the S4," the report stated.

"He went on to say that while the S3 set worldwide standards for Android devices, the S4 is likely to offer a "best in class" experience."

However, there is also a possibility of Samsung waiting a bit long, until May to be precise, to release the new phone as it did last year for the Galaxy S3. Last year, the company made a separate announcement to highlight the then upcoming S3 a few days before the CTIA Wireless conference.

Although a May release is a possibility, there is a high chance that the device could be unveiled at a Samsung Unpacked event being held in London on March 22 with a release coming sometime in April. The Korea IT Times says that Samsung expects to sell 40 million units of the Galaxy S4 during 2013, alongside as many as seven or eight subsequent models to bring about a profitable total of 60 million units.

Nonetheless, the device is still rumored, and some of the rumored specifications for the device include a 5-inch FHD Super AMOLED 1980 x 1080 Flexible Display, a 13-megapixel camera, 2-megapixel front camera, 4G LTE connectivity, 2GB of RAM and Samsung's latest eight core processor - the Exynos 5 Octa that the company revealed at this year's CES.

Although there is a possibility of Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie showing up with the device, most believe that Android Jelly Bean still remains the OS of choice.
