Samsung(NEW YORK) -- The day has come, Samsung Galaxy S fans.  Thursday evening at 7:00 p.m. ET, Samsung will take the stage at New York City's Radio City Music hall to unveil its latest flagship smartphone -- the Galaxy S4.

The company has been teasing the phone for weeks now with a marketing campaign starring a little boy and a photo it tweeted earlier this week.

The Android phone, which is an update to the company’s popular Galaxy S3, is said to have a larger, higher-resolution screen, a quad-core processor and a host of new software features, including eye-scrolling.

Samsung Galaxy S4 to Be Announced on March 14 in New York

Samsung(NEW YORK) -- The rumors were true: Samsung will unveil its next flagship Android smartphone -- the Galaxy S4 or Galaxy S IVa -- on March 14 at a press conference in New York City. The company sent out invitations to members of the press Monday and Samsung mobile division chief JK Shin told Edaily, a Korean website, that it would be showing off the phone.

"We introduced the Galaxy S III in London last year, and this time we changed the venue (to New York) ... as we were bombarded with requests from U.S. mobile carriers to unveil the Galaxy S IV in the country," Shin said.

The new phone is expected to have a higher-resolution screen, an improved camera and a quad-core processor. It is also expected that Samsung will focus on new software features that will set it apart from the other Android phones and the Apple iPhone.

Samsung has become the most popular Android phone maker. In January, Samsung reported that it had sold over 40 million Galaxy S 3 phones since their launch in May 2012. The company has taken shots at Apple in its commercials, aiming to portray Samsung as the cooler brand.

This week at Mobile World Congress, a large mobile tradeshow in Barcelona, Samsung released a new Galaxy Note. The Galaxy Note 8.0 comes with a digital pen and new software features that Samsung says it hopes will differentiate it from Apple's similarly sized iPad Mini.

ABC News will be reporting live from the March 14 event in New York City.

Samsung Galaxy S4 Is Coming

PARK JI-HWAN/AFP/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- The Samsung Galaxy S4, or IV, is coming -- that much seems all but certain. But after a tweet from mobile-review.com’s editor-in-chief Eldar Murtazin Monday told us to watch for a “big announcement” on March 14, it seems we may now have a date.

Sources told The Verge March 14 is “definitely" the date, so it’s now looking more and more like we’ll be feasting our eyes on the Galaxy S4, the update to Samsung’s popular Galaxy S3 phone, soon. The leak of a supposed March 14 release date happened Monday, just one day prior to the New York City HTC event, where the new HTC One was unveiled.

Samsung has surpassed the other Android phone makers in terms of market and mindshare. In January, Samsung reported that it had sold over 40 million Galaxy S3 phones since launching the device in May 2012. The phone, which has a 4.7-inch, HD Super AMOLED display and an 8-megapixel camera, released on all four major U.S. carriers in June. According to the rumors, the next version of the phone will focus on software features rather than hardware.
