The hotly awaited unveiling of the Samsung Galaxy S4 will be broadcast live at New York’s legendarily brash and busy Times Square, the phone-maker has announced via Twitter.
Samsung Mobile tweeted an invite earlier today summoning tech fans to watch ‘The Next Galaxy’ get officially unwrapped on the big screens at the landmark commercial intersection on March 14th.
The actual announcement will take place at the Samsung Unpacked event at the Radio City Music Hall, invitations to which went out to the world’s press last week.
Although Samsung hasn’t specifically mentioned the Galaxy S4 on either invite, the number ‘4’ in both surely suggests that that’s what we can look forward to in exactly two weeks’ time.
Among the cutting-edge features the Galaxy S4 is rumoured to pack includes a 4.99-inch full HD Super AMOLED display, an eight-core Exynos system-on-chip developed in-house, a 13-megapixel camera and wireless charging capabilities.
However, recent supply chain chatter and a forecast from JPMorgan analyst Rick Hsu suggests that the US version of the S4 could feature a Snapdragon 600 quad core processor from Qualcomm instead.
This is ostensibly because the Qualcomm’s chip comes with built-in 4G LTE support, which is a bigger priority across the Pond with nearly every network there already offering the superfast network technology.
Samsung’s octa-core chipset is still mooted to debut on the international model. And with a matter of weeks until the big day, it won’t be long before we find out for sure.
