Rumor: Samsung Galaxy S4 Unveiling Scheduled for March 14 in NYC

samsung logo

According to the founder of Russia’s mobile-review website, who has leaked info in the past, we can go ahead and confirm Samsung’s unveiling event for the Galaxy S4 to take place in New York City on March 14. Previous rumors suggested that we could see it unveiled on March 15 with availability beginning in April, so this is starting to become more of a time frame to get used to. 

March 14 is just two short weeks after MWC in Barcelona, which would give Samsung all of the spotlight in terms of their competition and no other phones being announced during that time.

Whenever it does finally come, we will be ready.

    I hope to see some cool new things on the Galaxy S4, such as the 1080p display that’s rumored. I have an upgrade available in the spring, so the phone could definitely be an option for me. On my way to work at DISH, I like to watch my shows on my phone just to pass the time. I have the DISH Anywhere app on my current phone which lets me stream live TV wherever I am, so it would be cool to watch my shows on a 1080p display.

    HTC better have something special and out quickly after their announcement otherwise they are going to get smoked again by the s4 like they did with their one x compared to the s3

  • tomn1ce

    I’m looking forward to seen what the GS4 has to offer but, will be waiting for what Moto will bring to the table….I’m really hoping that by the end of the year Moto releases a device on vzw with the S800 cpu…The G-Nexus should keep me going until the holiday season…

    • Dylan Patel

      S800 is for tablets I believe, but ya S600 and kick ass battery.

  • SexciiP


  • better have at least a 3,000 mAh battery.

  • Good_Ole_Pinocchio

    I for one… will be selling my S3 for the M7… In June or whenever the Xphone comes out i’ll take another look at my options then… For now. M7 All the way!….

    • Richard Yarrell

      Can’t help but laugh no removable battery and no sdcard slot. Htc M7 is a industry JOKE just like that crappy Htc Dna on Verizon.

      • Good_Ole_Pinocchio

        I don’t need a removable battery, just sufficient battery life… And my car charger will make up the rest. And with 32 and 64GB storage options I couldn’t care less about an SD card slot.

      • squiddy20

        The uses for a sd card are few and far between. It’s only good for 2 things: more storage, and portability of your data from one phone to another. The first is great, but most people are happy with 16 or 32 GB. The second is pretty pointless since most people upgrade to another phone once every year or two. And storing all your photos, videos, and other files in the cloud has never been easier, not to mention all the wireless transfer apps out there.
        As for a removable battery, you don’t see or hear about iPhone users complaining about the lack of that “feature”. What a joke.

        • MicroNix

          With capped data plans, your dream of the cloud replacing SD cards is just fantasy. I’m not transferring all my video to the cloud!! You ever see the size of those files??

          • squiddy20

            Ever heard of Wifi?
            Besides, I wasn’t talking about replacing SD cards purely with the cloud, just that they aren’t needed. I’ve got a Galaxy Nexus with 28 GB of usable internal storage, and no SD card. 11 GB of music, 5 GB movies/pictures, and almost 2 GB of apps. When I move on from the Gnex, I’ll be transferring all that either over Wifi, or to a computer and then to my new phone.
            Also, if you actually read what I wrote, you’d have noticed I said absolutely nothing about the cloud, let alone how I supposedly “dream” about it replacing SD cards.

      • Mark

        I agree. For everyone saying there is no need for an sd card slot, most people obviviously have ipods which are underglorified iphones. I have a 64gb sdcard in my note 2 ditched my ipod and all apple products and have all my music and work files on that little card. I will never buy another phone without expandable storage. And removable battery is a must I owned 4 moto razr and razr maxx’s and what happens when the battery just isn’t like new, can you just buy a new one and pop it in ( NO ) you gotta rip the phone apart and pry everything to hell. Work 12-16 hours a day and need an extended life battery can you do that without buying a MAXX phone. Iphone users don’t care because their brainwashed to just buy the ( S ) version of the phone they already have every 6 months. they have no time to have to worry about a worn battery.

  • Bored with Samsung

    Same ol Sammy ! Same look , just change whats under the hood. PASS !

    • MikeCiggy

      You’d think Apple would have trademarked this move. I agree with you though I like new hardware designs.

    • chris125

      so larger 1080p screen is just changing under the hood? ha you must be blind…

    • S2556

      They just completely changed the look of their flagship line last year. What are you talking about?

    • Richard Yarrell

      This guy doesn’t have a clue.

      • squiddy20

        This coming from the guy who claims “Samsung is Android”, despite the fact that, if it weren’t for Google offering Android for *free*, there’d be no “pimp slapping Note 2 or upcoming S4.

    • MicroNix

      And how is that any different than:

      * Droid Razr

      * Droid Razr Maxx

      * Droid Razr HD

      * Droid Razr Maxx HD

  • JBartcaps

    I just wish they would stop using cheap plastic for their build material

    • Scott

      Why? I’ve had more luck with my 2 samsung plastic phones than the HTC and Motorola metal ones before them. I even had my GS3 come out of my pocket while jogging, it fell to my foot where my stride cause me to kick the thing way out in front of me, turning end over end on concrete. Thing is still in great working condition.

      • JBartcaps

        It looks worse and feels worse

        • Colin Zack

          but it works far better in terms of durability

      • DMZMAN

        I wasn’t so lucky with my S3. The screen cracked and I had to have it replaced under insurance for $99.

        • MicroNix

          And I wasn’t so lucky with my Droid3. The screen cracked and I threw the POS in the trash. Moto makes the worst Android software (camera software, blur, etc) and the hardware is WORSE when it comes to failure than my S3. You guys go on about Moto build “feel” but the build “quality” sucks. I’ve had headphone jacks go bad, screen digitizers (the part that picks up on touch) and keyboards that flake out too. This was out of 2 Droid 1’s and 2 Droid 3’s. Not until I see proof that Google is 100% turned that shipwreck around will I buy another Moto phone!

          Bottom line: Anyone who thinks Moto quality is higher than Sammy’s either 1) never owned a Samsung phone for any length of time or 2) never owned anything but a Moto. Moto would have went out of business if Google didn’t pick them up and the sales numbers PROVE that. The only thing Moto can claim is better radios.

          • Dylan Patel

            The olded Moto phones were not great. Everyone is talking about mostly the Razr line for it’s quality. Everything about it is amazing except the hardware being underpowered, including the camera.

          • MicroNix

            The D3 was vastly underpowered as well. Updates did not fix issues. Camera was timed at 12 seconds from going into camera app to actually snapping a picture. Most spur of the moment shots were here and gone before that piece of garbage actually snapped a picture. In fact, it was so bad they offered $100 in credit to buy a new Moto phone. No ICS because they skimped on memory. So the phone was stuck with the version of Android it shipped with. Pretty pathetic.

    • tom

      i agree. I think they should have to build models. One as they have been doing,(plastic) and another more better build quality (a little bit more expensive)

    • JetBlue

      I just wish the back was a different material or something had a hard time gripping my Note 2 that I had to get a case.

  • I want to be excited about this, but I don’t think I can go back to having a non-Nexus phone again. Between that and my VZW unlimited data, I guess I’m stuck with the GNex for life.

    • +1 for this & for the fact that I think we’ve hit a stale period in smartphone development. We need something truly groundbreaking in both hardware and software. Google glass is a groundbreaking idea and I would love to see a nexus pairing with that device in the near future. NEXUS 5 with NEXUS Glass 😉

  • Josh Hendrix

    This is why I won’t buy a Galaxy S. The GS3 is still an amazing device and is not even a year old yet. At least give it a year.

    • chris125

      it’s not like it isn’t getting updates or anything. Just because you feel the need to be entitled and have your phone be the latest and greatest all the time doesn’t mean it still doesn’t work fine.

    • Dylan Patel

      Most companies give their phones about a year to 9 months. HTC gives them a few months. S4 will be released about 11 months after S3.

  • Jones

    The rumors about this thing tell me it’s only spec bumps and the 1080 screen.
    Never been a Sammy fan doubt this would turn me into one.

    I’m still considering getting the S3 instead of sticking with my Optimus G that I love bc of the community support alone.

    • Dylan Patel

      Spec bump is an understatement. It will be MUCH faster.

  • I’ll be there… pending we get an invite of course.

  • yankeesusa

    I am looking forward to this. I am thinking of switching over to tmo from sprint and I will sell my note 2 to get the s4. Can’t wait.

  • DanSan

    since im stuck on verizon and the N4 isn’t an option i was going to replace my gnex with either the note 2 or wait for the S4..

    waiting for the S4 it is.

    • If you’re going to wait for the S4 and want a Nexus 4, you probably ought to consider waiting to see what Motorolla and Google have in store with the “X phone.”

  • Butters619

    I’m excited to see what Sammy brings to the table, but I don’t think I could jump on board with out at least waiting to see what Motoroogle comes up with.

    • GuidZilla

      Same boat… i really want to move on from my Gnex, but dammit i’ve gotta see what comes out from Moto first.

      • Richard Yarrell

        Should’ve dumped that crappy Gnex long ago that’s for sure especially if it’s on Verizon.

        • michael arazan

          Most people got locked into a 2 year contract with it. That’s why they want to see this Moto X phone across all 4 carriers at a low price so they can buy the phone outright and unlocked from the PlayStore to replace their Gnex.

        • GuidZilla

          This crappy Gnex has performed just fine and hasn’t been stock since release day +1. Spec wise i’m ready for a bump. I’d like to keep my LTE and Unlimited data for as long as possible, which is why i’m going to be picky about what I purchase at retail.

    • Richard Yarrell

      Samsung is proven they have earned it’s top spot in android. Motorola has lots to prove regardless of Google owning Motorola. It will take far more than the Razr Maxx Hd and some silly Motorola X phone to compare to Samsung.

      • Dylan Patel

        none of those phones were designed to be super flagship phones and were not developed with google.

  • EvanTheGamer

    HELL yeah! Can’t wait!

  • SirSoloDolo

    Seeing how every announcement for all the Galaxy S phones have been in May, This rumor is most likely false and every rumor until May

    • jstew182

      With Google IO being in May, maybe they are wanting to get ahead of what will be announced there and try and get their product out before Google/Motorola announcements. Also, Google IO last year was a month and a half later than it is this year so you can’t always count on history predicting the future.

  • p_droid

    My body is ready.
