Samsung has begun sending out invites for what they call “Samsung Unpacked” where they’ll unveil their latest device, and the next event will take place on March 14th. While many were hoping for some leaks or an unveil at Mobile World Congress, just like last year Samsung will take the stage and limelight at a later date to announce their new product.
After the blockbuster success of the Galaxy S3, anticipation has surged for the successor to the Galaxy S franchise. The Galaxy S3 last year emerged as a true rival to Apple’s iPhone, even seeing accelerating sales after the iPhone 5 launched late last year.
Earlier reports pegged the launch to occur on March 14, and there have been loads of specifications that are rumored to be included.
Among them is a rumored eight-core Exynos processor, a separate eight-core graphics processing unit, a 4.99-inch SuperAmoled display, 2GB of RAM, a 13-megapixel rear camera with 1080p video capability, a 2-megapixel front-facing camera, and the latest version of Android, known as 4.2.2 Jelly Bean.
Samsung told CNET that it is also considering embedding its new security software, Knox, into the Galaxy S4.
Now all of our attention will be on Samsung as we prepare to see what they’ve got in store.
