Samsung Invites You to Times Square for the Galaxy S4 Unveiling

galaxy s4 invite

On March 14 at 7:00PM, Samsung wants you to join them in Times Square for the unveiling of the Galaxy S4. As they take the stage nearby at Radio City Music Hall at that same time, they are giving you a chance to experience all that their new flagship phone has to offer. Well, we don’t know that for sure, but since they are streaming the event live, we’re starting to think that they’ll stream the event in Times Square as well.

What better way to kick off the launch of the “next big thing” than by going all out in one of the most famous advertising spots in the world? Can’t wait to see what they have in store.

    OMG I think I cracked the code on this one – they are going to announce the S”4″! Get it? OMG!!!!!!!!!

  • Ohiwastedmylife

    This image has a hidden reference to the S Pen in it!!! Take a close look at the ’4′ and you can see the same texture of the button that is on the S Pen. I wonder if they are hinting at the S4 having an S Pen included!!!

  • Hatyrei

    no leaks yet ? that’s odd. :)

  • Sam

    I hope they remove the corny nature UX with all of the stupid water droplet sounds that sound like turds dropping in the toilet.

    • EvanTheGamer

      Clean out your ears, douchebag, because it doesn’t sound like that to me.

      • jeesung

        depends on your toilet :)

    • Aaron17Watson17

      You know you can disable that

  • Sean Bello

    my prediction: Steve Jobs isn’t really dead. He’s gonna make an appearance at the event with an Apple shirt on, he’ll take the Apple shirt off to reveal a Samsung shirt and do a leg drop on Tim Cook. After that, Apple fans will show up and start pelting him with trash.

    • michael arazan

      He probably downloaded his likeness in the apple servers and will be back in augmented reality form using 3D holographic technology to pimp the iphones and ipads from the grave

    If it is at Times Square, are there speakers to broadcast sound or is it just a display board? If there is no sound it might be kind of pointless. I’ve never been to Times Square though.

    This is the thing, the supposed cases that have been shown for the GS4 scream ugly and boring to me. the GS3 is a beautiful phone in pebble blue. Love its build materials or not, it looks nice, and when you hold it, its so comfortable, like it was designed to be in your hand, which surprise, thats where a phone is most.

    Good luck going better than that samsung.

    • roberthenderson

      As a fellow pebble blue owner, I feel the same way. Sammy didn’t get anywhere near enough credit for the beauty of the phone. The look, the feel, the attention to detail. The only thing I would change us the home button. Either much less pressure to activate it or have it be a beautiful disappearing capacitive button like the menu and back buttons.

    If it has plastic back I’m not getting it.

    • roberthenderson

      You would be missing the boat. There are a ton of replacement backs available for my GS3 and I’m sure they’ll do the same for the 4. I’ve seem aluminum, carbon fiber, wood and others (and many inexpensive ones).

      • http://twitter.com/fr8cture Eric

        Yea and they are terrible quality. I have a GS3 and not in a million years would I pay for those ugly backplates. I want it to match my phone not stick out. I wish verizon had more phone options….

        • roberthenderson

          as always, I’m sure some of them won’t be good quality but do you REALLY think that they are ALL bad quality?

          • http://twitter.com/fr8cture Eric

            Yes, I’d rather have one that match the phone and comes with the phone that is well over $500

          • roberthenderson

            unfortunately there is no 1 size or set of options that fits everybody.hopefully you find your phone that fits all of your major qualifications.

          • http://twitter.com/fr8cture Eric

            Not asking much, just good build quality since I know the spec aren’t much to worry about.

      • S2556

        I experienced reception loss when I got my medal back so heads up if anyone does buy those things. That was within a month of release though so maybe they worked out the kinks

  • pd240

    I wonder if the metal looking “4″ is a hint at the phone material. It would be surprising to see
    samsung move away from the plastic design.

    • Diablo81588

      Don’t count on it. Samsung and cheap plastic go hand and hand.

      • S2556

        the plastic was hardly cheap on the GS3. Poly carbonate is the same material used in the One X except the one x is a unibody design. Not a fan of the unibody personally.

        • Diablo81588

          The plastic IS cheap on the GS3. Glossy and flimsy plastic…

          • S2556

            okay good point… I’m enlightened.
            If only I would have noticed durring the 9 months i’ve owned it!
            hey could be a lot worse, could be glass back!

          • jboogie1289

            + 1

          • Aaron17Watson17

            But polycarbonate is a very high quality plastic. Just like aluminum there are grades of quality. Polycarbonate is on top and meets the requirements of a phone. You do know its used in bullet proof Windows right?

          • Diablo81588

            I know that it feels cheap, and I’m sure it is cheap to manufacture. I can instantly recognize a Samsung by the quality of materials used. Hoping the GS4 will change that.

          • Aaron17Watson17

            I just want to know that you criticize cause you care not trolling.

      • roberthenderson

        unfortunately there’s no way to please everyone 100 percent of the time. I had the HTC Rezound and the only things I didn’t like about it were the horrible battery life and the really heavy weight. I realize that I cannot have light weight and metal casing.and if it is metal and light that means only 1 of a couple of things. Either Dave used extremely thin metal that will dent the first timeit gets bumped, or Dave used some super expensive metal which would be way to prohibit ive 2 employees on a large scale.I am willing to sacrifice the metal for the light weight especially in light of the fact that many times I put a case on the phone as well, which will obviously add even more weight. I actually do not mind the finish on my galaxy s 3. I’m not saying that the other phones don’t have a nice finish especially some of the HTC phones, but I’m not mad about my galaxy s3 finish.

  • http://twitter.com/hexagram86 David

    if this phone still have the iphone home button. then I don’t care about it.

  • http://www.facebook.com/rene.barba.89 Rene Barba

    Maybe the background of the announcement could hint on how the phone will look like.

  • http://twitter.com/four0twenty Callum

    It’s gonna be a phone. It’s gonna have a screen. It’s gonna have a processor and some RAM.

    There will be nothing new.

  • Finire

    I might stop by after work, it’s really not much out of my way. I can always hope for a give away

  • rodney11ride

    the famous quote that will get me a bunch of “down arrows”

    If it doesnt have on screen nav bar then no thanks… oh and that hideous home button yuuuuk

    :) carry on

    • roberthenderson

      It’s a free country. You are free to love a big ugly black bar, wasted screen space and thousands and thousands of extra unnecessary screen taps if you so choose.

  • http://www.youtube.com/MKBHD Marques Brownlee

    That 3D font scares me.

    • kevin

      Hey Marques! I watch your videos all the time and I was wondering if you feel as if you might get the gs4 when it comes out?

    • EC8CH

      No way… that whole 3D phone fad is dead and gone…isn’t it?

      • michael arazan

        Actually saw a news report that samsung is actually trying to develop that 3d keyboard that is projected from the phone

    • Alexander Garcia

      MKBHD!!! What’re you doin’ here!? I’m a huge fan BTW! =)

      • http://twitter.com/fr8cture Eric

        He is always on here…..

    • dsass600

      Sup brah

  • Diego Diaz

    Pi Day.

  • Austin Warren

    Bring It On baby!!!!

  • David Moylan

    I think its great how now theres all these big functions and gathering for the release of a new phone. Before we’d get commercials and be done with it…now its seems we have one of these HUGE releases every month…kinda wearing on me

  • EvanTheGamer

    Be THERE or Be SQUARE!

    I cannot wait. I’ll be there in anticipation anxiously awaiting for the SGS4′s most anticipated debut to the world of Android!

    • LionStone

      Sorry man, it’ll be an incremental upgrade at best…also, the #4 is a very unlucky number in Korea so don’t get your hopes up too high.

      • EvanTheGamer

        No matter to me. I’d be going from my G-Nex to the SGS4, which would be WAY MORE than an incremental upgrade, pal.

        Plus I don’t live in Korea so the #4 holds no meaning to me. So…try again next time!

        • LionStone

          That’s cool, I can see where you came up with the “most anticipated debut” remark, but it should’ve ended with “to the world of Evan”. Enjoy your iButton and TW buddy! :-)

          • EvanTheGamer

            The iButton remark makes no sense, troll. So…try again next time! :-)

          • LionStone

            Oh you are funny. First you say the iButton remark makes no sense, then you say its still an Android device, regardless of the physical Home button. Relax buddy, you sure can dish it out but you can’t take it huh? I’m just pushing your…buttons, hehe :-)

          • Aaron17Watson17

            Apple has no patent on home buttons. Or else samsung would have removed them. Why are you even starting this? What do you gain?

          • LionStone

            Thanks Watson for pointing out the obvious. Starting what? Poking fun at other manufacturers decisions to use certain hardware/software? You know, what everyone else here does on a daily basis. Why don’t you ask Evan why he calls people “douchebag” for no reason?

  • Radgatt

    I’m still within the 14 day return period for my galaxy note 2. I’m so tempted to return it and wait for the gs4 instead. But being on Verizon there is no telling when it will come out. Might just hold on to my current phone and sell it and get the gs4 when it comes out. Or just wait for the X phone. Decisions decisions…

    • Aaron17Watson17

      Note 2 is a beast. Dony worry you will be satisfied with it for quite a while. Cant get its amazing battery life on s4 ;). X phone isnt gonna be out this year at all. Google is g onna wait to deplete Motorola’s old smartphone line. There’s even rumours its gonna come out in 2015 :(

  • SagarPatel

    whats with all of the dots in the picture? its all over the number 4 to?

    • http://twitter.com/belogical2 Be Logical

      Good call, I bet that is the back cover.

    • roberthenderson

      Good catch, intriguing.

  • DJyoSNOW

    I saw the features from a youtube video on the galaxy camera. I wonder if they would get implemented into the s4? How multiple shots were taken and combined to create an awesome beefy single picture ect..

    • Good_Ole_Pinocchio

      Are you talking about Panorama? Don’t think the Galaxy Camera does anything different software wise than Current galaxy phones.

      • DJyoSNOW

        Low light and the kid had a sparkeler and the picture captured a heart from the way he was waving it around. Those type…

  • NexusMan

    Cool idea.

  • TheWenger

    We need an X-Phone rumor. It’s been all week without one.

    • EvanTheGamer

      The rumor is is that it’s actually a rumor itself. There is no X-Phone, only people that like to create rumor based around myths.

    • sc0rch3d

      the conspiracy is actually a conspiracy

    • Yep

      Yes, I’ve successfully held 3 family members & myself off of upgrading because I really want to see what this XPhone brings to the table. Need moar XPhone hypebeasting!

    • Futbolrunner

      I’m waiting for user, Bionic, to come out and say its real and will be the best thing ever.

    • Alexander Garcia

      I’ll give you a rumor… A trusted source I know told me that he wasn’t very impressed at all with what they’ve got so far.

      • ERIC REED

        Damn you nailed that one!!

      • TheWenger

        I’m gonna need your crystal ball. That shit’s for real.

    • EC8CH

      RELEASE THE HYPEBEAST!!!!
