After months of speculation, Samsung is finally set to unveil its newest flagship smartphone tonight, the Galaxy S4.
The Korean phone giant is hosting a high-profile launch event at New York’s Radio City Music Hall, and will also broadcast the event on a Times Square jumbotron (check out the setup from earlier today). If you didn’t snag an invite and can’t make it to Times Square, though, you’re in luck. Samsung will broadcast its presentation live on YouTube starting at 7 p.m., so check it out below.
I will be there with PCMag’s Sascha Segan, who will be live tweeting the event from our @PCMagLive account. His tweets are embedded below the video, so be sure to follow along.
Rumors suggest that the Galaxy S4 will include a 4.9-inch, 1,920-by-1,080 display and eye-tracking technology, but we’ll have to wait until 7 p.m. to find out what’s really in store. Samsung’s earlier smartphone, the Galaxy S III, was launched for all four major wireless carriers, so it’s likely that the Galaxy S IV will have wide availability, too.
Samsung has been teasing tonight’s event all week, from a shadowy photo to videos that feature a pint-sized pitchman named Jeremy. It seems all the hoopla surrounding the event has some of Samsung’s biggest rivals worried. Apple this week slammed Android (and Samsung) in a Wall Street Journal article, while LG purchased billboard space directly above Samsung in Times Square to tout its Optimus G.
Stay tuned for all the news. Until then, check out Samsung Galaxy S4: 10 Things We Want, as well as Samsung’s Galaxy S4 Universe and Samsung’s Smartphone History: From Zero to Galaxy S4. Also tell us what you want to see from Samsung tonight via Build Your Own Samsung Galaxy S4.
