Come again? Yep, I had to do a double take, when I saw my friend tweet this last night. I was like: wait what? Galaxy S3 was just released last year!! Oh… It’s “last” year already. Well, anyways, the news has it that Samsung Mobile released rumors for Samsung Galaxy S4 already. According to reports, the new smartphone will be announced on March 14th at an event in the New York City. Are you all up to it? I wonder what other new bizarre functions and abilities Samsung could’ve come up with for its new phone.
Quite obviously, the release of Galaxy S4 will put other phone makers on their toes. Although iPhone 5 will always have a bunch of loyal customers, I bet that a group of people who still have been deliberating whether they should get iPhone 5 or not, will now wait to see what Galaxy S4 has to offer them. Actually, my first thought was: will Gal 4 be able to cook, or what? Because, you know, it feels like this phone has been announce out of the blue.
On the other hand, the announcement came right when HTC was supposed to reveal its HTC One on February 19, so some of the focus that was supposed to be directed at HTC will be diverted towards Samsung. Smart. As far as the Samsung Galaxy S4 appearance and features are concerned, it is thought that Galaxy Note 8.0 foreshadows the design of the phone, and the phone itself is thought to be equipped with Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean for its operating system. With 2GM RAM and a 13 MP rear-facing camera and the ability to shoot 720 HD videos, Gal 4 (as Koreans call it) is more powerful than your average home computer a few years back. Technology changes so fast, it’s scary, isn’t it?
Anyways, Samsung, bring it on.
