Samsung confirmed today that the conference will be held in New York on March 14 to launch the new flagship smartphone Galaxy S IV. The Samsung spokesman Chenny Kim said, this will be the first time for Samsung to release the flagship model in the United States in the past three years. Head of Samsung’s mobile division, JK Shin, said: “Last year, we published the Galaxy S III in London. To the request of the U.S. carriers, we will move to New York this year.”
There were reports that Galaxy S IV would be equipped with a higher resolution display, higher pixel camera and quad-core processor.
Samsung released the first generation Galaxy S in 2010 in the U.S. wireless communications show, in 2011 Mobile World Congress (MWC) they released the Galaxy S II in Spain, and last year Galaxy S III was released in London.
At the fourth quarter of last year, Apple for the first time surpassed Samsung to become the nation’s largest smartphone vendor. Analysts believe that the release of the Galaxy S IV will exacerbate the two companies compete in the U.S. market.
However, in the global smartphone market, Samsung is still in top one with a wide range of product lines and the leading edge is still expanding.
Investors have worried about the outstanding achievement performance of Apple, and hope the company to launch low-priced models to fully compete with Samsung in the emerging market.
This year, Apple’s share price has fallen by 15%, while Samsung’s rose 1.5 percent.
