Rumors suggested that Samsung would unveil the next Galaxy S smartphone on March 14th, and today the company confirmed the launch event with a tweet. Samsung sent out a teaser image that says, “Ready 4 the show. Come and meet the next Galaxy.”
Samsung mobile chief JK Shin confirmed the event will take place in New York, making this the first Unpacked event in the US since the original Galaxy S was announced in 2010. Just like previous Unpacked events, Samsung will stream the entire event live on Youtube.
We still don’t know anything about the Galaxy S IV but rumors have suggested that it might include an “Exynos 5 Octa (8-Core) CPU, Mali-T678 (8-Core) GPU, 4.99 inch SuperAMOLED Full HD Resolution Display, 2GB of RAM, 13 Megapixel Rear facing Camera capable of shooting 1080p Full HD Videos at 30FPS, 2 Megapixel front facing camera capable of shooting 720p HD Videos and run Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean out of the box.” Other reports say that Samsung will use Qualcomm’s new Snapdragon 600 processor, so we will have to wait and see what the final specs are.
Countless hardware OEMs are announcing new Android phones at Mobile World Congress this week, but the Galaxy S IV is easily the most anticipated phone among the hardcore Android fans. Nothing else comes close in terms of hype, except for maybe the rumored Motorola X Phone, so we can’t wait to see what Samsung has in store.
