Samsung to launch Galaxy S IV on March 14 in New York


The rumors turned out to be true with Samsung confirming that the company will unveil the successor of the Galaxy S III at an event on March 14th in New York City.

Samsung mobile chief J.K. Shin has stated that since the launch of Galaxy S in January 2010, the presentation of the new smartphone will take place for the first time back in the U.S..

“We introduced the Galaxy S III in London last year, and this time we changed the venue (to New York) … as we were bombarded with requests from U.S. mobile carriers to unveil the Galaxy S IV in the country”

Samsung Mobile, official twitter account also followed the statement and tweeted a short but enough message, “March 14. Ready 4 the show?”

Samsung has started sending out invites to the media that read “Read 4 the Show” and “Come and meet the new Galaxy” that clearly indicates the introduction of Galaxy S IV. The event starts at 7pm New York time, even you can stay up and watch live stream at youtube.com/samsungmobile.

However, what we find more interesting is the Unpacked 2013 event with the addition of Episode 1 that suggests there will be some more major events later in this year.

There have been rumors about the specs of the upcoming smartphone, the Galaxy S IV is expected to sport 5-inch Full HD Super AMOLED display, an Exynos Octa 5 eight-core processor with 2 GB of RAM and a separate eight-core graphics processing unit. It will have a 13-megapixel camera on the back capable of capturing 1080p videos and a 2-megapixel camera on the front. It will run Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean operating system.

The Samsung Galaxy S IV will go head to head with recently launched HTC One and Sony Xperia Z.
