Late last night, reps for Samsung started to confirm to the press that their next flagship device would indeed be unveiled in the U.S. at an Unpacked event in New York on March 14. This morning, they posted a public press release through their Twitter account, officially inviting you all to join in on the fun. The event will be streamed live on YouTube, so that the world can see the new Galaxy, likely to be named the Galaxy S4.

The event starts at 7PM EST on March 14. To watch the live action, youtube.com/samsungmobile will have it all.Ā 

And yes, we’ll be there.

    I will definitely be keeping up with the event to see what new things Samsungs puts in the new Galaxy. I hope that the rumored 1080p display turns out to be true. Iā€™d love to have a full HD display to watch me live and recorded shows to my phone while Iā€™m commuting to work at DISH. The DISH Anywhere app lets me stream my shows everywhere I go, and I think it would
    work great on a new Galaxy.

    I’ll wait for the X phone, buy 1 for vzw, wait for my contract to end in 10 months, and hopefully buy another X phone for the Dish / Google carrier after my contract is done with vzw, crossing fingers, knocking on wood

  • EvanTheGamer

    HELL YEAH! I’ll be there too…virtually! I cannot bloody wait!

  • AranelAlasse

    I heard something about 4 being a superstitious/taboo number in Korea (where Samsung is). Their elevators are labeled 1, 2, 3, F, 5, 6, etc… So if the device’s name is used throughout the world, don’t be surprised if it’s NOT called the Galaxy S4.

  • I think it would be cool to have a physical bat also capacitive home button. Tap it.. Home. Press it… Google now.

  • joejoe5709

    Nice. And hopefully a successor to the Galaxy Nexus loosely based off of it soon to follow. šŸ˜‰ I know the tech world is insane, but jeebus it seriously seems like the S3 JUST came out. Craziness. This phone might be first phone to make my GNex feel old and outdated.

    • joejoe5709

      Hopefully this will be the phone to finally shut up the iSheep. The S3 got really close…

  • I’d like to point out that it says “Episode 1” at the top. FORESHADOWING.

    • Dylan Patel

      Episode 2 is the new note in winter I assume

  • Odds that it’ll be possible to flash a stock-type ROM on the GS4? I loathe TouchWiz.

    • NicholasMicallef

      There really is no need to worry about that, Galaxy S phones get the most developer attention right after Nexus phones.

      • Thanks. That’s a big requirement for me, too.

  • Sammy Brence

    4.99 Inch Screen Humm? think it might have an s-pen? if it does I will be mad LOL I just bought a Note 2 Yesterday.

  • pappy53

    Now if they could get it to run as smooth as an iPhone 5…or 4S…or 4…

  • Rodeojones000

    Please, for the love of all that is holy, do not put a physical home button in the phone.

    • for the love of god i hope they don’t but i think we all know deep down they will

  • Bionic

    X phone trumps S 4

    • Just need real details.

    • you know this because you used both devices……..

  • It looks like it will be the X-Phone vs. the GS4 for my next upgrade from my GNex.

  • zepfloyd

    Interesting it says ‘Episode 1’ at the end. I guess they consider the Note line Episode 2 now?

    • Over the last couple of years, they have done a tour of Unpacked events, so I’d assume that just means the NYC event is first. Then they’ll do episode 2 in London or something.

    More Magic PLEASE! . . . Poor HTC…. Samsung is going for the Jugular

    • Verizon

      I seriously read your comment as, “More Plastic PLEASE!”.

      • Austin Warren

        yeah because magic sure does look like plastic /s

        • Verizon

          Only when Apple and Samsung are selling it.

          • PhoenixPath


  • TheWenger

    I’ll wait to find out about the X Phone.

    • Austin Warren

      And when it disappoints, everyone will be quiet.

      • JoshGroff

        Sure it may not live up to all the hype, but it will be anything but a disappointment.

      • TheWenger

        If it disappoints, I’ll just get a GS4, or maybe a Note 3 by that time.

      • I’ll drop VZW and get a Nexus 4/5 on TMO.

  • DanWazz

    But I thought the next big thing is already here?

    • Verizon

      This years campaign is about the “Next Most Biggest Thing”.

      • flosserelli

        The Next Big Thing Unpacked 2013 Episode 1

        Sounds more like a porn flick than a phone event.

    • PhoenixPath

      It’s like “tomorrow”….once it’s here, it’s not The Next Big Thing anymore.

  • I know it’s blasphemous to even think this way, but does anyone else miss the days of “dumb-phones”? I mean it was nice being able to purchase the next, greatest phone and knowing it would last you well past your contract date before the next, greatest phone was debuted/released. šŸ˜›

    • JoshGroff

      That and not having to worry about them breaking because grabbing one used was always relatively cheap.

      • Verizon

        Break? I remember dropping a flip phone down a flight of concrete stairs, picking it up and saying sorry to the person on the other end of the line before continuing my conversation. What were you doing to your phones?

        • JoshGroff

          I was talking about slide phones, those keyboards always had something malfunctioning, usually the space bar and other commonly pressed buttons just from daily use. I did however manage to break the outer screen of a flip phone once, but that was a drop on rocks in the driveway.

          • I had the Env2 which was a side ways flip with the keyboard. That thing broke I don’t know how many times! I remember once the screens on both the inside and outside just went straight white (sent it back to LG and after 3 weeks they finally sent a replacement for free), one went tumbling out of a lifted truck only to land on the concrete pavement with the inside screen shattered. Let’s just say LG didn’t make the best phones!!!

    • Verizon

      As many people state, this is very similar to the PC race we had not too long ago. Remember when buying a brand new PC meant you were months or even years behind on the latest and greatest hardware? This too will slow down once everyone is using smartphones, there is a clear OS front runner and the manufacturers decide that they don’t have anything to prove.

      • Big_EZ

        There already is a OS front runner, Android

        • Dylan Patel

          Ehhh, High-end, Apple sells more.

          • Big_EZ

            Until the IPhone has some of the basic features of Android I wouldn’t call it high end.

          • Diablo81588

            High end.. Lol

    • Butters619

      Phones do last. Unless you are a DL reader and want to be on the cutting edge of technology. Say you bought a One X last May. Your phone would still be plenty capable to do anything that these phones can today, except not benchmark as high.

    • I miss the days of not having 30 ways to contact me and expecting an immediate response.

      • AMEN!!! I would vote up this comment 4000 times if I could.

        • Dylan Patel

          Make 4000 accounts

  • Come on kellen. MWC has already announced the fonepad and the padphone by asus! As well as the new sony tablet thats waterproof! Hurry up. Lol

    • Thomas

      Kellen why aren’t you & Tim at MWC ? Just curious ?

      • It’s a bunch of global phones that don’t come to the U.S. Or if they do, it’s 6 months down the road.

        We decided to spend the week giving away Nexus devices to users rather than covering mid-range LG phones. šŸ™‚

        • Thomas

          Ok..I’ll email you my address šŸ˜‰

        • And for that, my friend, we are truly grateful!

  • sc0rch3d

    Off contract and ready

    • Good_Ole_Pinocchio

      *correction* “Off contract and my body is ready”

      • sc0rch3d

        nah…not starving for it. just got an S3 for free coming from GNEX (and a Droid2 before that). I usually stay about one generation behind when it comes to phones.

  • My body is ready.

    • Austin Warren

      Mine too blackie šŸ˜‰

    • Austin Warren

      I want to apologize for the earlier comment. Left my tab open while using the restroom at school. Bad idea.
