Samsung Galaxy S4 announcement confirmed for March 14

Just last week, we told you that Samsung’s Galaxy S IV / S4 would be officially announced in New York City on March 14. Now Samsung has confirmed this launch date.

According to Korean website Edaily, JK Shin (Samsung’s head of Mobile Division) declared that the launch event would be held in Ney York because the company was “bombarded with requests from US mobile carriers to unveil” the new handset there.

It certainly makes sense for Samsung to announce its next-generation flagship smartphone in the US, as the previous Galaxy S models have been received very well there.

Interestingly, the quad-core processor inside the Galaxy S4 might not be an Exynos one, but a Qualcomm-made unit – more specifically, a 1.9GHz Snapdragon 600. Of course, it remains to be seen if that’s indeed the case. The new Galaxy should also come with a 5 inch Full HD display, 13MP rear camera, and Android Jelly Bean.

The latest leaks suggest the S4 would have a design closer to the one of the S II rather than the S III (what you’re seeing above is just a concept). Speaking of the Galaxy S III, this has been an immense success (and still is), so the new Galaxy S4 has big shoes to fill. Samsung plans to sell 100 million units of the new flagship – and it probably will manage do to just that.
