Galaxy S4 to launch March 14 - Samsung
Samsung Electronics has announced it will unveil its next flagship smartphone, the Galaxy S4, on March 14. Samsung is already sending out invitations this morning to a "Samsung Unpacked" event in New York for next month (picture above).
After the blockbuster success of the Galaxy S3, anticipation has surged for the next Galaxy S franchise. The Galaxy S3 last year emerged as a true rival to Apple's iPhone, even seeing accelerating sales after the iPhone 5 launched late last year.
Samsung's tease will likely overshadow many of the other announcements at Mobile World Congress, which like the Consumer Electronics Show has seen its relevance diminish as the major players opt for their own announcements. HTC last week debuted its flagship One smartphone at its own global event in London and New York.
Some specs that are rumored to be included in the new Galaxy S4 include an eight-core Exynos processor, a separate eight-core graphics processing unit, a 4.99-inch SuperAmoled display, 2GB of RAM, a 13-megapixel rear camera with 1080p video capability, a 2-megapixel front-facing camera, and the latest version of Android, known as 4.2.2 Jelly Bean.
