The countdown has started! Are you ready for the show?
Samsung Monday morning sent out invites to select members of the press to “come and meet” the next Galaxy at the March 14 Unpacked event that will take place in New York. The company confirmed to Reuters that the press conference is a launchpad for a Galaxy S III successor, the Galaxy S IV. The happening itself, which plate is at Radio City Music Hall, will be livestreamed at 7PM ET. The event can be watched live on YouTube at 7pm US EDT (10am Friday March 15 AEDT).
According to Reuters, the press conference is filed as Samsung’s first U.S. launch of the flagship Galaxy smartphone in three years. In comments made at Mobile World Congress 2013 mobile chief JK Shin has said
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 launched the Galaxy S III at a media event in London in May of last year. The phone moved 30 million units in five months and 40 million units in seven months, Samsung said. The new Galaxy should arrive in March or April, ahead of Apple’s next iPhone refresh, the iPhone 5S, believed to launch around summer.
The displayed flyer is very interesting for another reason: the number four has a metallic luster, while the background is strongly hint to glass. Maybe this is a hint about the materials that are used for the Galaxy S4.
As we have described before, the Galaxy S4 will supposedly feature a 4.99-inch 1080p display, a Exynos 5 Octa processor or a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 processor, 2GB of RAM, a 13-megapixel camera and it will run on Android 4.2 Jelly Bean.
