Samsung's S4 to set Galaxy alight
NEW YORK: Locked in a fierce battle in the smartphone market, South Korean giant Samsung yesterday unveils its latest device aimed at challenging Apple in its home market.
The Galaxy S4 set to be unveiled at Radio City Music Hall, here, has been generating buzz worthy of the iPhone, as the two firms fight for leadership in smartphones in the US and global markets.
Samsung has released no details about the device, but it is widely expected to be an upgraded, slightly larger version of its Galaxy S3, with some new bells and whistles.
According to The New York Times and some other media, the S4 will be able to respond to eye movements with an enhanced interface, and will offer an improved display.
Apple, which is known for keeping its plans private, is believed to be working on its own upgrades, including a new version of the iconic iPhone. But its shares have slumped some 40 per cent from highs hit last year.
Analysts at CIMB, an Asian financial firm, see sales of the Galaxy S4 likely to reach at least 70 million and "even over 100 million is possible." AFP
