The Samsung Galaxy S4 will be unveiled tonight amidst plenty of pomp and circumstance at the Radio City Music Hall in New York, and the tech industry is anxiously awaiting the event. In fact, some analysts predict that more than 10 million Galaxy S4s could be sold, thanks to all the hype about the device.
Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd. (LON:BC94) (KRX:005930) is said to be ready for the massive demand. Analysts have checked the company’s supply chain and say that the company appears to have all of its ducks in a row this time around. It’s estimated that a big problem last year with the Galaxy S3 resulted in the loss of 2 million sales within the first month of the device’s launch.
The Samsung Galaxy S4 will likely be available for purchase within the next one to two months, based on previous model launches. We have heard all kinds of rumours, like that the Samsung Galaxy S4 will sport an even bigger screen then the S3, measuring in at a full five inches. We have even see some photos that someone claims to have leaked, although the legitimacy of those photos has been questioned.
The device is expected to have a plastic body like previous version of the Galaxy S devices. Outside the U.S., it’s expected to run on Samsung’s octo-core processor, although the Galaxy S4 that will be released in the U.S. will likely use Qualcomm’s quad-core processor.
The one area in which Samsung Galaxy S4 rumours are sketchy is in the device’s software features. Earlier reports indicated that it would have eye scrolling, but a report on Wednesday said it actually wouldn’t have that feature. Instead, it’s expected to have a simplified version of the eye scrolling technology.
Since the inception of the Galaxy line in 2010, Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd. (LON:BC94) (KRX:005930) has sold 100 million of the devices.
