Live: Samsung Galaxy S4 Event

Samsung Unpacked

Everything goes down tonight, 4:00PM Pacific (7:00PM Eastern)! You know what I’m talking about, the Samsung Galaxy S4 unveiling event. We’re here in NYC to cover it, but Samsung has gone ahead and made a livestream available (embedded below) so that the world can join in on the festivities. We may see something similar to the device that has leaked a couple of times over the last two days, or Samsung may win the day again, proving that that was nothing more than a troll job. I can’t wait to find out for sure, so that the speculation and confusion can end.

Join us live!

  • cheap jerseys paypal

    it looks like HTC one in the shape

  • if they listen to people around the world why does touchwiz still suck?

  • EvanTheLameAss

    Derp…

  • wm snyder

    i dont have enough fingers to count the features

  • What was that???? WOW!!!!

  • Lye

    2013. The year of all the other Android companies.

  • ImmaDroid

    cant ask for much more in a smartphone then right there!

    • Rodeojones000

      Except for no OEM skin and no physical button.

      • ImmaDroid

        Hey i’ll take all that if I have to deal with a home button and skin.. Im fine with my GS3. But wont be spending 700 on the S4 anyways

  • wm snyder

    wow well im waiting for the smoke to clear

  • Jim McClain

    Looks like a amazing phone and a stupid presentation

  • Harsh Karn

    Looks like they are trying to outpace android. Now I get why thy are trying to make their own OS.

  • John Jenness

    Which of these features will be in the commercials that make fun of the next iPhone?

    • Austin Warren

      They should do a noise canceling mic commercial just like apple

    • John Jenness

      Attack the Apple camera….this one is has some unreal features.

      • cmiram

        But really!

    • Tech Pro

      Screen Size.
      2012 “The Next Big Thing” 4.7″

      2013 “The Next Bigger Thing” 5.0″

      2014 “The Next Biggest Thing” 5.3″

  • zurginator

    That S-View cover is actually pretty nifty. IMO they should have just done a Light-flow esque notification system, maybe with presets for major apps? Then a simple hole for the light would suffice.

  • Bionic_Pags

    i honestly might have to tap out… this is seriously nauseating how cheesy it is… i’m having trouble paying attention to the features because of how much i’m groaning and looking away… i’ll just stick to reading Kellex’s live chat

  • with gorilla glass 3 you can use the GS4 as a scale!!! lay it on teh floor and step on it with all your weight and watch the magic happens!!!

  • sHealth????????

  • skynet has arrived

  • Jim McClain

    This is so goofy

    • EvanTheGamer

      Are you related to John McCain by any chance?

  • Austin Warren

    Loving the innovation. Who needs new hardware.

  • desperate housewives knock off?

  • brad kou

    they need to stop pushing for chat on… its not going to catch on….

    • Neomastermind

      I see what you did there…

      • brad kou

        completely unintentional

        • Neomastermind

          Even better.

  • ok dual chat feature is awesome. i really liked that

  • EvanTheGamer

    That chick in the white dress is hot yo.

  • John Jenness

    Man…the hardware is good, and the software is crazy good!

    • Austin Warren

      yes! finally somebody agrees.

    • John Jenness

      This battery better be good….

      • brad kou

        should be 2600 mah

  • Bionic_Pags

    What was the deal with getting directions on S Voice Drive? They quickly mentioned navigation, however they didn’t mention google maps or navigation… are they actually attempting to sandbag google nav?

    • i was wondering the same

    • Rodeojones000

      Good question. I’m wondering the same thing.

    • I’ve heard the Android once, maybe twice? Appsung!!!

    • drizzy

      have they mentioned google at all? sammy is clearly trying to have their own services that aren’t google

      • Rodeojones000

        This is what I’m thinking.

      • Not once. They want nothing to do with Google. Too bad Google/Android made Samsung what they are today.

      • steve30x

        I thought they clearly showed google maps when they showed off s voice.. although they didn’t mention Google Maps.

      • Bionic_Pags

        exactly! good point

      • tomn1ce

        For what I noticed they only mention Android once throughout the entire presentation..

  • group play is kinda of cool. i just dont like thls exclusivity to the s4 sounds like another company that i know of. I hope its becomes more open

  • EvanTheGamer

    Okay, I take that back…this presentation just freakin’ sucks. I’m impressed with the SGS4, but they didn’t need to talk about the phone in this way. Don’t like the dramatization…at all. Not digging this.

    • john

      Exactly. There are some cool features but this presentation is just ridiculous Nobody wants to see this.

      • EvanTheGamer

        Exactly, NO one. They could have just gone with the head honcho, then he introduces someone else to talk about the phone, then after about 5-10 people, end of show. Done deal. This is just bad.

        • Rodeojones000

          Are you having a conversation with yourself on here? Both names are EvanTheGamer.

          • EvanTheGamer

            If you look to the RIGHT hand side of my name, it will say ‘drizzy’…I’m responding to his comment, smart ass.

          • Rodeojones000

            I think Disqus was messed up. I restarted and it shows it correctly now.

      • Rodeojones000

        No, on my screen it shows that you’re EvanTheGamer but the guy you’re conversing with is also EvanTheGamer. No Drizzy on my screen. I’m thinking Discuss is messed up.

        • EvanTheGamer

          Okay, my apologies. Yeah, it’s showing up as ‘john’ now, it was showing up as ‘drizzy’ before though. Something is amiss here.

    • tomn1ce

      It was better then the one for the gs3 those people back then looked like robots or that they had something stuck up their @$$..

  • Edward Figueroa

    Group Play is the Nexus Q

    • Austin Warren

      except that thing is dead

  • i do like how samsung is really trying to appeal to the enterprise

  • NicholasMicallef

    I almost expect that guy to put on the glasses and say ” It’ll Knox your sox off”

  • Austin Warren

    I guess i’m the only one with a family that loves me cause Dual camera is awesome

    • Rodeojones000

      Really?

  • hhmmmmm samsung knox? security stronghold for my data? sounds familiar

  • Kevin Hill

    The glove thing looks appealing.

  • what kind of gloves. those are thin and silk gloves. they are probably conductive

  • NicholasMicallef

    I love how the phone on the left in the smart switch looks like an iPhone, basically saying anyone who wants a smart smartphone needs to get an S IV

    • Austin Warren

      No it doesn’t.

    • tomn1ce

      I noticed that, that was nice

  • but yeah all these features are still pretty cool. I really like it

  • Neomastermind

    I must be easy to entertain because I’m loving the showmanship. They know they’re being cheesy and they embrace it.

  • Austin Warren

    I’m starting to think everyone is only mad because they know Motorola could never come close to this.

    • Rodeojones000

      Please. Just stop.

      • Austin Warren

        I don’t even know why you’re here.

        • Rodeojones000

          Didn’t realize I needed to run it by you first.

          • Austin Warren

            you obviously aren’t interested in it, so why be here talking nonsense

          • Rodeojones000

            I don’t care for the the phone, but that doesn’t mean I’m not interested in info about it. I’m talking nonsense? You’re the one who commented earlier that you must be the only one with a family that loves you because you like the dual camera feature.

    • EvanTheGamer

      No, I’m mad at this lame attempt at a presentation, not at the SGS4 itself.

      It just f’n sucks…the presentation, not the phone.

  • yeah no google now still blows it out of the water

  • DroidWorld

    Shut Up and take my money

  • Kevin Hill

    Yeah dude they’re pictures of Brazil…

  • what if its pron????

  • like google googles?

  • drizzy

    They invented Google Translate! Simply Amazing.

    • Austin Warren

      Still a great feature.

      • Rodeojones000

        I’m beginning to think they could bring out a paper bag filled with poop and you’d mention how it’s a great feature.

        • Austin Warren

          I’m thinking you can shut the fu*k up already. Go suck motos D

          • Rodeojones000

            Being told to shut up by the dude criticizing every comment over the past week that didn’t paint the S4 as the greatest thing in history is rather humorous.

          • Austin Warren

            nop

          • john

            He is clearly a paid troll. Companies frequently pay people to post to social media or comment on websites. He is clearly one of them.

          • Typical Samsung sack rider.

          • Austin Warren

            Lol yeah, that’s all you guys can come up with.

    • Kevin Hill

      It has less content compared to translate. Essentially the same problem with apple maps.

  • Rodeojones000

    Just when I thought the look-away pause and no-touch things were the ultimate gimmicks, they show off dual camera mode.

    • Austin Warren

      I guess you don’t have a family to take pictures with anyways

      • Rodeojones000

        Wow. You really are the ultimate 12-year-old troll, aren’t you?

  • lye

    Ok eraser is pretty sweet.

    • EvanTheGamer

      Hell yeah it is…that’s a very nifty feature!

  • ok whats weirder this fake family thing or weird nature inspired video last year?

  • Austin Warren

    This is amazing. So much better than that Ultrapixel crap

    • john

      Serious question. Does Samsung pay you?

      • Austin Warren

        No, i just like nice stuff. Nothing wrong with that.

      • EvanTheGamer

        Serious question: Are you a real-life troll?

    • sSheep. sSheep everywhere.

      • Austin Warren

        you’re not funny

  • lye

    S4’s next feature… ACTUAL cheese!

    • EvanTheGamer

      Bacon?

  • tomn1ce

    the home button was left there for vzw to put their damn logo on it….. -_-

  • drizzy

    wow, this is really, really terrible. who the hell thought this awful acting was a good idea?

  • Kevin Hill

    This Sucks, but I cant look away.

  • brad kou

    can someone boo this guy off the stage… he’s soo awkward

  • Rodeojones000

    Galaxy S3.5??

    • Austin Warren

      not even close.

    • EvanTheGamer

      Run along now troll…don’t let the giant door hit ya on the way out!

  • drizzy

    underwhelmed

  • Suralin

    “simply amazing.” – Is that how Samsung pronounces “magical” ?

    • lye

      Revolutionary!

  • Timothy McGovern

    I feel like I’m calling Verizons customer service

  • THE PICTURE LEAKS WERE RIGHT!

  • lye

    I don’t want to sound prejudice or anything, but this would have gone over better with a native english speaker.

    • Spelaren

      Although… it has its charm.

    • baconslayer09

      Seriously…

      Everyone will have a easier time understanding.

    • Timothy McGovern

      seriously. He sounds like the guy on southpark.. “Stupid Mongolians! Tearing down my city walls!”

    • It’s not prejudice to form an opinion AFTER the fact.

      • Lye

        Well if we’re going to get all technical I was judging the effect before the reaction.

  • friggin stream is busted

  • zurginator

    Full orchestra on stage = I’m impressed.

  • Jim McClain

    Get on with it

  • jawabba

    207k watching the unveiling. goes up 2-3 k every 10 seconds

  • Bionic

    X phone. LOL

  • As always I must thank you guys for actually posting the original livestream of the event.

  • Lacy Cotton

    Does Anyone know if the video of this event will be available after the livestream? I’ve unfortunately got a meeting at this time, but I don’t want to miss out!

  • Does anyone find it odd this is unvield on Steak and BJ day? Can we say Samsungs audience is men?!

    • gokusimpson

      Never heard of that….but it IS pi day

  • damon

    Gs4 my next phone till the note 3 can’t wait till its in my hands.

  • EvanTheGamer

    I’ve honestly been looking forward to this ALL freakin’ week! Luckily enough I get off at 4pm so I’ll be ready! Can’t wait!

  • I’m probably in the minority here, but I could care less about an S4 announcement. I’m more interested in an announcement regarding US spec Note 8.0 and release date.

    • Rodeojones000

      Actually, there are more of us who don’t care one bit about this phone than you realize.

      • Sam H

        And yet you took time to come here AND post. But wait, you don’t care…

    • Tim242

      I think you mean, couldn’t care less. If you could care less, that means you care more.

  • Geoff Johnson

    What if it’s a 4″ Galaxy phone? haha

    • itznfb

      lol. That would be hilarious.

  • nwd1911

    I feel like I shouldn’t be this excited.

    • itznfb

      I have about a 1% chance of owning a S4 but it’s always exciting to see new flagship devices officially unveiled. Especially when it is the follow up to the phone that dominated the market for all of 2012.

      • kane

        U broke man ?

        • itznfb

          No. I’m not a fan of plastic phones. Not saying they are bad, I just don’t like them.

          • Tim242

            At least this one will have a metal rim.

          • Diablo81588

            No it won’t. It’ll be chrome painted plastic.

          • Tim242

            We’ll see very soon who is right…

          • Diablo81588

            Polycarbonate.. You owe me a cookie.

          • Tim242

            Not so fast. That has not been confirmed for the rim.

        • Kane Stapler

          Ay. Quit stealin my name

  • t3chi3

    I’m up for a contract renewal. This will tell me whether or not I wait for S4 or have to choose between the S3 and DNA.

  • Black Roger

    4pm? WTF am I supposed to do all day!

    • gokusimpson

      I know, right!? I’m at work and I want to do something else!

  • John Ippolito

    What’s in the box?!

    • Austin Warren

      Freaking loved that movie

    • 401 million in advertising lol – Hey samsun, mind skipping 1 commercial and pay off my school loans purty please?

      • Austin Warren

        chump change

  • wm snyder

    dont touch that dial will be right back er uhm dont touch that remote we will be right back

  • The surprise I want to see is “This device will be available on all carriers on 4/1/13”

    • itznfb

      Should be their first post-release ad… “Guess who doesn’t have supply chain shortages? Samsung. The S4 will be available tomorrow and won’t run out of stock!”

  • MichaelFranz

    Whats in the box Jeremy!!

    • wm snyder

      i cant tell you but we can call a friend with my new phone!

    • OrangeAttack

      I can tell you, but I’ll have to kill you.

      • Pedro

        Spoke in class today?

  • ToddAwesome

    Trolljobs are decent, Troll2jobs on the other hand, are EPIC!

  • JBartcaps

    I hate trolljobs, those are worse than handjobs….. But seriously, that last leak looked pretty official. I wouldn’t mind a surprise though

    • S2556

      You speak like hand jobs are a bad thing!

      • JBartcaps

        Out of all the jobs, yes they are lol!

        • Pedro

          And yet, still not bad.

          Just a sliding scale of goodness.

        • mustbepbs

          Foot jobs are worse.

          *cringe*
