Now Samsung is poised to release the successor to the Galaxy S3 – a smartphone that will likely be called the Galaxy S4. "March 14. Ready 4 the show? #UNPACKED," reps for Samsung wrote in a Twitter message posted earlier this week. Included in the tweet was a faux-movie poster, with a link to a YouTube channel, and an invitation to "meet the next Galaxy."
The press event will be held in New York, but it will be live-streamed via YouTube.
"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 mobile division chief JK Shin has said.
Samsung hasn't said exactly what kind of features will be available on the Galaxy S4. (We assume it's going to be called the S4 because of all the "4" branding in the Twitter message. We could be wrong.) But smart money is on a bigger processor, a better – if not necessarily larger – screen, and a more durable build.
