Last year, Samsung launched the Samsung Galaxy S3 at its own event in May, just days before the CTIA Wireless conference. The move made for a relatively quiet trade show.
This year, The Korean electronics giant will be holding off on any major announcements at Mobile World Congress later this month, according to a person familiar with its launch plans. As with last year, Samsung will likely hold its own separate event to launch the latest iteration of its flagship Galaxy S franchise.
Furthermore, some very fresh rumors and leaks suggest that Samsung is already planning to attack Apple right on its home turf, by announcing the Galaxy S4 in the U.S. in March. A few weeks later, the handset should be launched in various markets, with early-to-mid April being a potential release window for the Galaxy S4.
