After months of rumor speculation, Samsung finally confirmed this weekend that the Galaxy S IV would be rolled out at a h 14 press event in New York.
The news first broke on South Korean news site EDaily, according to Reuters, with Samsung mobile chief Shin confirming the planned New York launch. The news agency also noted that this will be Samsung’s first U.S. Galaxy launch since the original Galaxy S in 2010.
Official invitations were sent to the media, as well, which read, in part, “ready 4 the show”—a fairly clear reference to the Galaxy S IV. An exact location wasn’t provided, though the invite did say the event will take place at 7 p.m. EST.
Announcement light on specifics
No details about the device itself were made official, however, which means that the rumor mill is likely to remain busy until launch. The general consensus gives the Galaxy S IV a 5-inch, 1080p display, 2GB of RAM, an eight-core Exynos SoC, but this is based largely on conjecture unconfirmed reports. Some of the wilder speculation includes eye-tracking software a flexible display.
ile the Galaxy S IV remains the hot topic of conversation in the Android world, it’s far from the only game in town. Rival HTC recently released its own cutting-edge flagship in New York, a host of new Android devices are being debuted at this week’s Mobile rld Congress in Barcelona.
