Well, here we go. This isn't the first Galaxy S IV rumor we've seen or heard over the last several weeks, but it's the first one that may actually hold water. The story actually started earlier today, when Eldar Murtazin of Mobile-Review pasted a somewhat cryptic message on Twitter about "a big announcement" coming on March 14th. He went on to mention something about HTC missing One sales again.
Save the date for a big announcement - March 14 :) And keep silence ;) HTC will miss HTC One sales again :( Like it was in 2012.

It was later corroborated by SamMobile that the March 14th date was in reference to an upcoming Samsung event where the Galaxy S IV will be announced. Now, we're not generally ones to buy into something just because it was suggested by multiple people, but in this case The Verge is also backing the rumor, stating that it "has confirmed with sources familiar with Samsung's plans" that the company will "definitely" announce one or more devices on March 14th. Color us intrigued.
Of course, it's only a presumption that the GSIV will be part of the show. The word on the street is that, much like with the Galaxy S III, Samsung is keeping its new baby under very close observation, so we have no real way of knowing what the company has planned.
Still, given that The Verge is willing to put its name on this one, it's probably a safe bet that we'll see the next iteration of the iconic handset in less than a month. Hoo-rah.
