Samsung’s stock just keeps rising, so the fervour associated with the new Galaxy S4 is already outstripping that of the Galaxy S2 and Galaxy S3, both of which nabbed ‘phone of the year’ titles in recent times.
If you needed a barometer of this, just look at how the Galaxy S3 was unveiled. Not at MWC like lots of others, but its own event, proving the Galaxy line has reached the level where it can guarantee hoards will come just for an unveiling – and come 14 March in New York, the Samsung Galaxy S4 is going to land at its own event too.
The Galaxy S4 name was even ‘confirmed’ at a recent event by a researcher, and now we even have this lovely video that sets the scene for the launch in New York:
The trickle of ‘sources’ talking about the Galaxy SIV (if you’re being all Roman numeral about it) is building to a roaring crescendo, so we’re on hand to help let you know which whispers have a notion of truth about them
The Unpacked event, which is expected to bring the announcement of the S4, has been set for March 14 2013, in New York and for 7pm EST (sadly for the UK, this means it will be 11PM before you can see what’s going on).
And if you’re in New York then, head on down to Times Square, as Samsung will be live streaming the event and may even have some stuff to play with as well.
However, possibly in retaliation to the HTC One buzz that Samsung predicted might pop up, the launch is earlier than last year, which means some S3 owners might feel aggrieved that Samsung is already making their handset outdated.
But it does catch the old Galaxy S2 owners nicely as they come to the end of their contract cycles
