Samsung sends out press invites for March 14: can you say Galaxy S IV?
Samsung’s own JK Shin confirmed just hours ago that the Galaxy S IV will indeed get officially unveiled on March 14th in New York, and now Samsung has sent out the invites for the press, shedding all doubt.

And if you were yet unsure whether the Galaxy S IV will indeed by the star of Samsung’s March show, take a look at the writing “Ready 4 The Show” with the 4 a hint that obviously confirms it will be the new Android Galaxy S flagship.

This will be ‘Episode 1’ of Samsung’s Unpacked events for 2013, and those usually are held for high-profile devices like the Galaxy S or Galaxy Note series.

So far, rumors for the Galaxy S IV say the device will come with a 4.99 inch SoLux display (not AMOLED) with a quad-core 1.9GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 chip and 2GB of RAM. There will be 16GB/32GB and 64GB models and a 13MP rear camera.

i hope GSIV won't be there, so samsung will take time to fix exynos octa and put it on GSIV, i'd rather w8 and get octa than early with 600 :/

You do know the Snapdragon 600 is no slouch when it comes to processing power right? I would rather see the Exynos 5 octa as well, but I'm fine with the 600.

it's good to be live stream, but i'm afraid they are going to introduce the S4 mini , the 4.3 incher instead and wait till they fix the heating problem on their exynos octa , then release the big daddy. Now , where i'm coming with this fear ??? if you guys look up there it said : Samsung Unpacked 2013 (Episode 1) , that mean there is (episode 2), the question is which episode to which Galaxy ????

Guys, J.K Shin said that "We focused on the real values for users than the spec competition this time." So lets not expect too much about its specs :(

How is it too soon? It's been 10 months since the GS3 came out, this is normal.

Please let it be Snapdragon 800 or Exynos Octa. I am happy to hear about the new LCD they've decided to go with though.

I'm a fan of Super AMOLED to the point where I don't think I can go back to LCD. Snapdragon 800 isn't due until the second half of the year btw.

I second that, can't do LCD no way!, OLED is the future.

Relax boys and girls and don't get too exited cuz the phone won't be all that anyways....this year samsung won't be the top dog of the android phones, it doesn't have any of the specs that we like on a samsung high end phone...No AMOLED,no octa, same silly plastic design.....so disappointed.

1.9 GHz Snapdragon 600 (slight, SLIGHT chance of Exynos 5 Octa, if they fixed the overheating issues) 2-3 GB of RAM 1080p 5" S-AMOLED HD (non-Pentile) or SoLux Android 4.2 out of the box with new and improved Touchwiz (maybe announced with 4.1 and 4.2 update shortly after launch) 2,500 mAh battery at the least Matte polycarbonate with metal accents; maybe even Sammy will go with a unibody design for the first time in... Ever. Can't wait. I'm interested to see SoLux displays, I've never heard of those before. Anyone kind enough to give me some information on them?

Me too, I've never heard of a SoLux display before, I wonder what it could be..

SoLux displays have improved viewing angles, outdoor visibility, and color accuracy, compared to regular LCDs. HTC calls the display on the One Super LCD 3, so I am not sure if it’s a different tech or just a rebranding. > SoLux is the only lighting technology in the world able to replicate daylight and render products' colors the way they naturally appear -- images are sharper while colors are brighter and truer when viewed under natural daylight or SoLux. So i think that is backlight or something..

I bet it will have 2gb of ram. Come and find me after it announced

31. Berzerk000

I'm iffy about it. I expect 2 GB of RAM, but 3 GB is a possibility.

the leaked boot screen who made the rumor of the not-Amoled for galaxy s4 contains wrong text logo.. the g in Samsung must be on top of the X in GALAXY not on the A :D that was fake if im not mistaken
