Samsung’s next Galaxy-branded smartphone, the Samsung Galaxy S IV, could land as soon as this April, according to fresh reports from SamMobile. The flagship smartphone is allegedly currently codenamed “Project J.” If April is indeed the launch date, we expect Samsung will discuss the phone in detail during Mobile World Congress in Barcelona in February. As it stands, the device is expected to feature a full HD AMOLED display, a 13-megapixel camera, a quad-core processor and the latest version of Android.

SamMobile said that Samsung is already working on a new version of its Galaxy Note II, although it will have watered down specs from the current version and will only launch in Europe. Maybe Samsung will ditch the quad-core processor and provide less storage in an effort to sell the device at a cheaper price point? Finally, Samsung is also expected to launch a new tablet to compete toe-to-toe with ASUS’ Transformer family of tablets. It will apparently feature a huge 13.3-inch screen (that seems way too big for us). Samsung is going to sell an optional QWERTY keyboard dock, too, just like ASUS does. It’s unclear if it will run Android or Windows 8, however.
