More evidence has emerged that the Samsung Galaxy S4 could launch in black and white colourways, as the eyes of the tech world turn New York-wards ahead of the handset’s launch next week.
Posters advertising the imminent arrival of the Galaxy S4 in Times Square, where a livestream of the launch event is to be broadcast on the intersection's famous big screens on March 14th, feature a black background with white text and a white background with black respectively.
Given phone-makers’ propensity to drop hints about their products in pre-release promo material, that’s enough to set tech-tongues wagging that the Galaxy S4 will come in black and white colour options. From launch, anyway. We suspect that jazzier colours will arrive later this year.
The latest outbreak of speculation follows testimonies from an anonymous insider back in January, who claimed that the S4 would see Samsung ditch the Pebble Blue hue of the Galaxy S3 in favour of something a bit more traditional. And dare we say it, more macho and likely to appeal to the core market of Android smartphone fanciers.
Samsung’s marketing campaign for the handset is also expected to focus on fresh tweaks to its Nature UX custom skin. These are thought to include advanced eye motion-sensitive controls to enable users to scroll through pages and pause videos using eye movements alone.
The phone’s spec sheet, meanwhile, is thought to take in a larger 4.99-inch Super AMOLED screen with a full HD resolution, a 13-megapixel camera and, in select territories at least, an octa-core processor.
