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.


Incorrect, they're all at similar magnification levels. Note how close the size of the subpixels are to devices with similar PPI like the Nexus 4 and HTC One X.

The reason you notice the pixel array with the GS3 is the same reason text and fine detail looks bad on a pentile screen: pixels share subpixels with each other. The "higher resolution" GS3 has fewer subpixels than the iPhone 4S or other devices like the HTC One X with similar PPI.

The GS3's inferior rendering of fine details and awful color profiles are clear as a bell to the eye. You don't need a macro lens to make the point but it certainly makes it obvious.

Here's another one with the GN2: http://img.gawkerassets.com/img/185bfx75mrx0cjpg/x...

Also not very good. Why isn't HTC more popular among Android users? They clearly use better displays than Samsung, some of the best out there.

Not so good: http://images.anandtech.com/reviews/gadgets/apple/...

Like I said before, it wouldn't surprise me if display was one of the reasons why Google dropped Samsung for LG when it was time to make the Nexus 4.
