Samsung Galaxy S IV To Be Officially Launched On March 14 In New York City
The date is March 14th, and you can bet that Samsung's monster marketing budget will extend to push this thing in a huge way. With Apple (likely) still months out from unveiling a new iPhone, the Galaxy S IV will have the smartphone world to itself all through the summer. It will also go down as the first U.S.-based launch of a flagship Galaxy S smartphone in three years. Samsung Electronics' mobile division chief JK Shin was quoted as saying the following: "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."
The GSIV isn't likely to look drastically different, but instead boast a higher resolution display, a nicer camera, and a speedy quad-core CPU. Just two years ago, Samsung used MWC to launch the Galaxy S II, but it's clear that the line has taken off in such a way that warrants a dedicated event. Needless to say, you should be hearing more whenever the advertising blitz commences.
