Samsung has stated that it will have a launch event for its Android-based Galaxy S IV smartphone in New York City on March 14th, but it looks like it won't be confined to an invited list of journalists sitting in a room as Samsung will also be holding a public event related to the smartphone's reveal in Times Square on that same day
Earlier this morning, Samsung's Twitter account posted the following message, with an accompanying image:
Samsung will also be livestreaming the reveal event on its YouTube channel for the folks who can't make it to New York City.
Times Square has been the place where many a new technology product launch event has been held recently, including the Nokia Lumia 900 in April 2012 and the Windows 8/Surface RT launch in October. However, both of those events were held just a few hours before the launch of those products. The Samsung Galaxy S IV is not expected to show up on store shelves until sometime later this spring.
The current rumors on the phone's hardware specs claim that the Galaxy S IV will have a 4.99 inch screen, Samsung's own Exynos 5 Octa processor, 2 GB of RAM, a 13 megapixel camera, and Android 4.2.1 (Jelly Bean) out of the box.
