expected announced: 14th March 2013.
Expected released: 23th April 2013.
Expected global sale target in 2013 alone: 100 millions units.
It seem like the GS4 doesn't impress so much, the HTC One, Sony Xperia X, LG Optimus are very comperable to the GS4.
I believe Samsung will sell more than other but Samsung may start losing some of is fan. And if this GS4 isn't well build? The Xperia X will be the real winner even if they don't sell more than Samsung.
I'm a bit disappointed with the GS4 but let see the software on it. I maybe impressed.

I hope it's true that it will still support FLASH (meaning the default browser will allow plug-ins). Desktops still use it (probably always will) as well as windowsRT and Blackberry, and the current mobile flash uses almost half as much processing power (and battery) as HTML5 for the same in-browser video at the same resolution. It's more popularly used, more efficient, less buggy (on anything running 2.3+), and it's supposed security flaws don't affect mobile devices the same way as x86 (seriously, when's the last time your PHONE got a virus via FLASH..it was more likely from that naked girl livebackground that wanted access to your bluetooth functions). Flash should NOT be allowed to disappear from Android.
Anonymous, 12 Mar 2013people know why :) its the best phone ever... SAMSUNG!Samsung brand is the best in the world
Guys this very well could turn out to be refreshed version of galaxy s3...murtazin has said that samsung is making a refreshed s3 with 2400 mah battery and better display....
what is the different betwen SIV and SIII??
except gorilla glass 3
i hope and pray that these pictures that are surfacing all over the net are all fake , because i am a huge supporter of SAMSUNG ,and have been using Samsung phones all my life , i have owned all the previous flagships of samsung , like galaxy s1, s2,s3 even the note 1 and the note2 till now i liked SAMSUNG products because they were ahead of time and had a very good user experiance , but after using the S3 for around 8 months i am really looking for a new design for the next flagship , if this photo posted at gsm arena turns out to be true then i will be really disappointed , and i will have no choice but to go with SONY XPERIA Z
please Sammy make it in aluminium with replaceable back cover.....!!!!!!
i don't care about the design or it's plastic made material. important to me is the specs! i love Samsung! :)

The old SonyEricsson W995 has an aluminum casing and it has a repla... moreOf course it's possible, but what I'm taking about being impossible is making it a reasonable weight for a modern smartphone, Because the HTC One I think is 147g and the extra weight to make a replaceable battery would be at least 160-170g, and not many people are gonna want to carry a phone like that anymore, So like I said... Impossible... For now at least.
My 8 mp on note 2 already superb just imagine what wud 13 mp on s4 wud do i think the pictures will be awesome & dont give me that mp doest make any diffrence bull****hit as we can see what happened with HTC one but due to less real estate and 1080 p screen the s4 wud not be able to beat note 2 in battery life .....lets hope i am wrong...
FYI for INDIAN users the samsung live stream from Time Square NY unpack event for s4 will be starting on 4.30 am on 15th march IST so whoever is intrested in INDIA can set the alarm to watch it live ...on you tube..enjoy..D:

The old SonyEricsson W995 has an aluminum casing and it has a replaceable battery.
I hope Samsung will use the same material, then it would be great...
Tcool, 13 Mar 2013You are wrong! Do some research before you post. "What makes the Xperia P different, ... moreIt's impossible to make an aluminum unibody and have a replaceable battery so that isn't gonna happen. The most it might have is an aluminum frame instead of the plastic one on S3.
