Samsung tweets 'Be Ready 4 The Next Galaxy' invitation for Times Square Galaxy S IV festivites March 14

Samsung already sent out invitations for its big March 14 event in NYC, where it is widely expected to announce the 2013 Galaxy S IV flagship, and it seems the festivities will be spilling over to Times Square as well.

The Koreans haven't been shy with advertising dollars in the last few years, while building the Galaxy brand, outspending Apple more than ten-to-one last year, and that prime New York advertising real estate called Times Square won't come cheap again.

What are the plans remains a mystery, but, judging from the "4" in the slogan "Be Ready 4 The Next Galaxy," the latest Galaxy brand boss might indeed be called Galaxy S IV (4). We'll be there to relay the NYC happenings to you live in two weeks time.

Many marketing analysts used to thought that, even until now there are still many lecturers still teaching students about the most efficient marketing of Apple.
But marketing is not only about the efficiency. In the case of Samsung, the extreme growth tells a lot.

I beg to differ.. Samsung's marketing has been cheap compared to others. They have lost their standards (I'm not sure as to when they had one). The marketing style that they are following is nothing new to Apple. In fact Sammy is literally following apple's way.

I don't wanna bass anybody, but I feel not very well which such a stupid comment like this.

First, I don't understand of cheap? Double the sale for one year with 4 billion of advertisement is cheap? Or maybe somebody having mental problems that cannot understand this word.

Second, if the marketing of Samsung is following Apple, so can we say Apple pays a lot of money for advertisement? For discounting to retailer? Maybe only somebody with low IQ believe in that.

Apple is NOT best in marketing
STEVE JOBS is BEST in mind control

I just thought of that, the Wave series was very nice looking.

Also, I kind of want to see that sliding method for the battery compartment that was in the Wave 3; it gives access to the battery and memory slots without compromising build quality. If they could fit that into a slimmer package, the chances of me actually buying the GS4 would skyrocket.

Don't disappoint Sammy, I'm sure everyone still wants a new design. Otherwise, I have no doubts this is going to be a great event.

and why hate samsung? i cant find any reason to hate samsung... if they dont want the company and they have their own favorite manufacturer then stick to it, not by disrespecting the entire MARKET!!! this is a market wherein everyone is being inspired by another and just want to make the best thing out of the box...

No, the durability is fantastic, it's the quality that I'm after.

Glossy polycarbonate with a flimsy removable back should be a no go. It looks cheap. It might feel alright, and be durable, but I like my phones to LOOK good as well.

I actually prefer my phones to be bare, it's just when I root and lose my warranty I get a case for it. But, since I only rooted my GS2 because Touchwiz was unbearable and got CM10, I doubt I'll root my next phone.

"Samsung Unpacked 2013 Episode 1" I wonder if this means they've got a few things lined up this year. Not just this and the Note 3.

You know the drill people: it's yet another uber phone with even higher specs than the previous one (a few weeks ago) and that's how it goes nowadays in the mobile world: more pixels per inch, more RAM, more cores etc. This is getting boring...

WOAH IT TOTALLY DOES HAVE THE SPEN HIDDEN IN IT! GOOD CATCH!

Take a close look at the '4' and you will see the same grip that is on the S Pen button! That is awesome if that is what they are hinting at!

Should be leaked soon since I don't have much faith in New Yorkers keeping this away from the media. Samsung outsources their reps from agencies and I see no incentive for the reps that will run the times square booths to keep the GS4 a secret. They are probably calling their reporter friends right now. Hey! I got my GS4!

Why does it have two cameras? Is it a 3D phone? I don´t think so. But thanks for the tip :)
