Samsung electronics is all set to unveil its flagship smartphone the Galaxy S4 on March 14th.
Samsung has sent out invitations this morning to a “Samsung Unpacked” event in New York for next month. While the invitation contained little details, CNET has confirmed with a high-level executive that the Galaxy S4 will make its debut there.
After the success of the S3, anticipation has arisen for a new S4. 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.
HTC last week debuted its flagship One smartphone at its own global event in London and New York.
There have been many spec rumours floating around in the last few days: Among them is a rumored 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.
Save the date for a big announcement - March 14 🙂 And keep silence 😉 HTC will miss HTC One sales again 😦 Like it was in 2012.—
