Not to over hype things, but the upcoming Galaxy S4 might be the best Android smartphone we’ve ever seen. Samsung’s been making some steady improvements to the Galaxy S line, so we’re expecting great things from their next flagship handset.

Supporting the rumors that Samsung will announce the Galaxy S4 in March, a new report is claiming that Samsung will start producing displays for the device later this month.

The reports originating from Korea claim that the 4.99-inch Full HD Super AMOLED display the company will use in the Galaxy S4 is nearing the production line, and manufacturers are ready to produce it en masse at the end of February.

It’s also been confirmed that the Galaxy S4 will not be unveiled at the Mobile World Congress that starts on February 25th. With the displays not being manufactured until the end of the month, we think it’s more likely that an official announcement will come in mid-March as has been rumored, with an launch date slated for sometime in April.

The Galaxy S4 will follow the Galaxy S3 which has been Samsung’s most popular smartphone ever, with more than 40 million units sold worldwide. The device is expected to have an eight-core Exynos 5 Octa processor, an eight-core Mali-T658 GPU, along with 2GB of RAM and a 13-megapixel rear-facing camera.
