On Thursday, March 14, Samsung will unveil the much-anticipated Galaxy S IV at an event in New York City’s Times Square. The Korean company has been very secretive about its next-generation Android flagship — as it was with the Galaxy S III last year — but pictures of the new device may have been leaked ahead of its official debut.
The image you see above was posted to Chinese forum 52 Samsung, and it’s just one of many of that purportedly show the Galaxy S IV. The handset looks a lot like a Galaxy Note II — albeit a slightly smaller version — but according to a benchmark test, its internals are very different.

Samsung already offers a similar feature with its Galaxy Note devices and their accompanying S Pens. But the Galaxy S IV will use your finger, rather than a stylus.
BARCELONA, MOBILE WORLD CONGRESS — I’ve used both the original Galaxy Note and the Galaxy Note II for fairly lengthy periods, and although I’ve quickly gotten used to their super-sized displays, there was one thing that never failed to frustrate me. Samsung didn’t make the capacitive buttons beneath the display compatible with the S Pen, so when you’re working with the stylus, you have to move it out of the way and use your fingers to go back or access a menu.
Sure, it’s only a small flaw, but it’s still a frustrating one — as I’m sure anyone who’s ever owned a Galaxy Note will tell you. Thankfully, Samsung has fixed this with the new Galaxy Note 8.0.
BARCELONA, MOBILE WORLD CONGRESS -Mobile World Congress 2013 is now underway here in Barcelona, and there’s one device we couldn’t wait to get our hands on: the Galaxy Note 8.0 — Samsung’s answer to the iPad mini.

The Galaxy Note 10.1 could be about to get a little brother.
Samsung looks to be preparing to take on the iPad mini with the Galaxy Note 8.0, a smaller version of the Galaxy Note 10.1, which is expected to be priced very aggressively.

Until today, tablets users in the United Kingdom would have had to pick up a new iPad mini to gain access to super speedy 4G connectivity on the go. But that’s no longer the case. EE, the U.K.’s first and only 4G network, has this morning announced some new additions to its tablet lineup, including the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1, and the Google Nexus 7.

Benchmarks for a mysterious Samsung tablet codenamed the GT-N5100 have surfaced online, sparking speculation that the Korean electronics giant is working on a 7-inch version of the Galaxy Note.

Samsung may have already unveiled its second-generation Galaxy Note II, and indeed the Galaxy Note 10.1 this year. But it seems the Korean electronics giant has another Note up its sleeve. It has today send out teasers for a press event in New York City on October 24.
