New device to be unveiled in New York City

If you're a fan of Samsung's Galaxy smartphones, you will be glad to hear the latest rumor making the rounds. Sources are indicating that Samsung is set to announce its next high-end smartphone called the Galaxy S IV on March 14. The mid-March introduction date was unveiled started with a tweet from Eldar Murtazin.

Murtazin wrote, "Save the date for a big announcement - March 14 :) And keep silence ;) HTC will miss HTC One sales again :( Like it was in 2012."

The Verge backs up that tweet, stating that March 14 is "definitely" the day that Samsung will be unveiling its latest generation flagship smartphone.

Another interesting tidbit that comes from the sources claiming to be familiar with Samsung's plans is that the manufacturer will focus on features rather than raw specifications.

The sources said, "The leap in cool new features from [Galaxy S III] to the next flagship will be bigger." That would seemingly mean that the leap and features would be bigger between the S III and S IV that it was between the S II and the S III.

That's an awful comparison, because the pictures are zoomed precisely to the point where the S3's subpixels show up as colored elements in the jpg but the other phones' subpixels get blurred together.


The pentile array is such that there are fewer subpixels per pixel, resulting in poor rendering of fine details and text. Color gamut and gamma are among the worst in its class. All of this is clear from normal viewing distance, magnification shows why.

Sharing subpixels rather than having three dedicated subpixels per pixel is not a good solution.

The international S3 and all Note IIs have the option of more accurate colors.


And even then their color accuracy isn't anywhere close to Apple's or HTC's. I'll take Anandtech's detailed color and gamma analysis over CNET's any day.
