Samsung Confirms Galaxy S IV Launch Event For March 14th


We can put it on the books and put the rumors to bed Samsung’s Mobile Chief JK Shin has confirmed a Galaxy S IV event on March 14th in New York City. According to Edaily, Shin stated his company will show off the device at a Samsung Unpacked event marking the first time a Samsung smartphone has launched stateside since the Galaxy S in 2010.

“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 Electronics’ mobile division chief JK Shin was quoted as saying on the Edaily news website.

As for the device itself, we’re still working off a list of unconfirmed specs amid new reports Samsung has dropped their Exynos processor for the quad-core Snapdragon 600. As was the case with the Galaxy S III, Samsung has managed to keep the Galaxy S IV hardware and its insides away from prying eyes, but we’re happy we don’t have to wait much longer to see the device officially unveiled. Rumored specs include:

  • 4.99-inch Super AMOLED FULL HD Display
  • 2.0GHz Quad-Core CPU
  • Mali-T658 GPU
  • 2GB RAM
  • 13MP rear-facing camera
  • 2MP front-facing camera
  • Android 4.2.1 Jelly Bean
