Samsung Galaxy S4 release date was confirmed by the South Korean company’s executive to CNET on March 14. Samsung has sent out invitations for an event titled, ‘Samsung Unpacked’ in New York, which is apparently the platform for the announcement of the successor of Galaxy S3.
The invitation for the event lacks details, but CNET has spoken to a high-ranking official at the South Korean company, who confirmed the release date of Galaxy S4. The successor to Samsung’s best-selling smartphone has been the most-talked about device in technological avenues for a long time.
With rumours growing everyday, the confirmation will pacify the people, who were uncertain about the release date of the device, but the speculations about the features of the device will continue to mount. Recent reports suggest that Samsung might be looking to install its new security system, Knox into Galaxy S4.
Knox features a ‘container’ system that separates personal and office data and can also be utilised on applications. The new security system from the firm also includes AES 256-bit encryption, the ability to create a virtual private network connection through a single application and it also helps to improve the mobile device management controls.
The rumours about the specs of the next smartphone from Samsung include an 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.
The predecessor of Galaxy S4 has given fierce competition to iPhone and the South Korean firm would be hoping that S4 does the same. With the Mobile World Congress set to start today, there might be many more announcements about the launch of new devices from major players in the technological industry.
