How to Watch the Samsung Galaxy S IV Launch Online


We’re just hours away from the Samsung Galaxy S IV smartphone launch in New York City, the first time the Korean manufacturer will unveil a device in the U.S. and not overseas.

The event — which kicks off at 7:00 p.m. ET at Radio City Music Hall, just blocks away from competitor Apple’s flagship store — will be live streamed viaSamsung Mobile’s YouTube page and broadcast in Times Square. We’ve also embedded the stream above for your viewing pleasure.

For those following along on Twitter, Samsung is urging fans to use the hashtag #Unpacked, a reference to its much-hyped “Unpacked” marketing campaign.

There has been a lot of fanfare leading up to the event. First, it handed out paper invitations at Mobile World Congress conference last month — a move we’d expect from Apple — by drawing attention away from the show and onto its upcoming launch. Then, the company organized a flash mob.

There have also been teaser trailers and a tweet from Samsung of a picture of Galaxy S IV shown amid a shadowy background.

So what are we expecting? If leaked images and videos are any indication, we will likely see the device run on Android 4.2.2. and tout a quad-core 1.8GHz processor, 5-inch (1080p) display, 13-megapixel camera and 2GB of RAM. Features such as Floating Touch, Eye Scroll and SmartPause are also rumored, as well.
