Samsung sends cryptic invite for Galaxy S IV announcement on March 14

Samsung logoSamsung has set the date to bring its next iteration of the successful Galaxy S smartphones into the light: March 14, according to invites sent to press Monday. Few concrete rumors have surfaced about the phone, though possible spec bumps include a quad-core processor, higher resolution screen, and an improved camera.

Samsung’s Galaxy S II and Galaxy S III were hits both critically and in sales. Twenty million Galaxy S III units sold between its May 2012 launch and the end of September, making it one of the most successful Android phones on the market and in the league of Apple’s iPhone in terms of singular smartphone-make sales. (Apple's number even includes multiple generations of the iPhone, not just the latest.)

Samsung sends cryptic invite for Galaxy S IV announcement on March 14

The next Galaxy S phone’s quad-core chip may be based on ARM Cortex A15 architecture in the form of an Exynos 5450 chipset. The camera may leap to 13 megapixels, and Samsung would be remiss to let competitors like HTC and its new HTC One outstrip the Galaxy S IV with their 1080p screens. Hopefully we’ll see the same with Samsung’s new phone.

The announcement will take place at Radio City Music Hall in New York City. The event begins at 6pm EST and Ars reporters will be on the ground ready and waiting to bring you the full spectrum of details on the Galaxy S IV.
