Samsung to Launch Galaxy S IV on March 14th in NYC

With the major Mobile World Congress conference taking place this week in Barcelona, it was expected that Samsung would make use of the event to unveil its much-hyped Galaxy S IV – but not so. Instead, it’s decided to go the route of hosting its own event, set for March 14 at a to-be-announced venue in New York City, marking the first time in three years that the company has launched its flagship model in the US.

While rumors have been surrounding the IV for months, Samsung seems to have been doing a good job keeping most details mum, because at this point, the smartphone has one hundred possible combinations. Some speculate that the device could sport the beefy Exynos 5 Octa SoC package, while others suggest Samsung will settle with a current-gen quad-core based on the Cortex-A15 architecture. The latter seems more realistic at this stage, as the Octa would be best-suited for a tablet.

Alongside the SoC upgrade, we’re sure to see an improved resolution, 2GB of RAM standard and of course, the most up-to-date version of Android. We wouldn’t expect the physical design to deter too far from the S III, given the huge success Samsung has experienced with that phone.

Whatever the IV ends up offering, the wait to learn more is almost over.
