The Samsung Galaxy S4 will be officially unveiled by Samsung at a Samsung Unpacked event in New York on the 14th of March, Samsung has sent out invites for the event and also posted the following photo on Twitter.
The Samsung Galaxy S4 will launch with two different versions, one for Europe with Samsung’s new 8 core Exynos Octa 5 processor and one for the US with a quad core Samsung Exynos 5440 processor.
The rest of the specifications on the Samsung Galaxy S4 are expected to be the same in Europe and the US which will include a 5 inch AMOLED display with a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels.
The Samsung Galaxy S4 will apparently feature a 13 megapixel camera and a front facing 2 megapixel camera, the handset will also come with 2GB of RAM and a choice of 16GB, 32gB and 64GB of built in storage.
We are expecting the S4 to launch with Android 4.2 Jelly Bean and it will also come with a range of new features developed by Samsung, which will include a new Samsung Orb camera feature, eye tracking technology and touchless gestures.
Samsung Galaxy S4 is rumored to feature touchless gestures, that will let you perform actions on the device without touching the display, if you wanted to answer a call you would just lift the handset to your ear, and the call would be answered, rather than pressing a button and then lifting it to your ear.
The eye tracking technology on the Samsung Galaxy S4 will be in the form of Eye Scroll and Eye Pause technology, these are two new patents that Samsung filed recently for mobile devices.
Another new feature on the Samsung Galaxy S4 is called Samsung Orb, which is rumored to be similar to the Photo Sphere feature in Android, and it will apparently will allow you to take 360 degree panoramic photos with your Galaxy S4.
We previously heard that Samsung would launch the new Galaxy S4 in April, we were give a date of between the 15th and 22nd of April by one of our sources, and this date is expected to be the same in both the US and Europe.
