Samsung Galaxy S4 gets another teaser video
A video shows little Jeremy looking at a still-secret Galaxy S4
The Samsung Galaxy S4 will be introduced later this week and the company has released another teaser video to whet your appetite for what should be one of the most popular devices of the year.
Like the previous teaser video, the latest Samsung Galaxy S4 promotion centers around a little kid named Jeremy who has a box filled with what should be the next Galaxy S phone. Why does he have it? I don't know. The video series implies he or his dad is some sort of bigwig and that's why they have early access to it. Also, there's some nosy, nerdy neighbor who's trying to get all up in Jeremy's business.
To be honest, I think these are pretty terrible teaser ads and it's somewhat of a surprise, as I've liked Samsung's recent commercials. Regardless, you can be sure that little Jeremy will be on stage March 14 when the handset is finally shown off to the world.
While I may not like this teaser campaign, it's just a minor thing when you consider that the Samsung Galaxy S4 will likely be one of the best devices we see this year. Samsung has kept a relatively tight lid on it but we're starting to see a bunch of leaks.
A leaked image today suggests the Samsung Galaxy S4 will look similar to its predecessor but you can bet it will get a bump in specs. Other rumors suggest we will get a five-inch, 1080p HD screen, an octa-core processor, 2GB of RAM, Wi-Fi, GPS, Bluetooth 4.0, 4G LTE and nearly everything else you'd expect from a high-end device. It should launch with Android Jelly Bean and the custom TouchWiz UI with new features like eye-tracking software for automatic scrolling.
Samsung has huge expectations for the Galaxy S4, as the previous version went on to sell more than 30 million units in about five months. Look for the Samsung Galaxy S4 to exceed those sales figures and it should be accompanied by a massive marketing push. It's a virtual lock that it will be coming to AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile and Verizon for roughly $200 with a new, two-year contract (the T-Mobile version may cost a little more as it tries to phase out subsidies).
The Samsung Galaxy S4 will likely be released in the second half of April, according to rumors. It should be one of the most popular devices until the release of the next iPhone later in the year.
