Watch Samsung’s Galaxy S4 announcement live tonight at 7PM EDT

With the Galaxy S4-shaped cat out of the proverbial bag, the only thing left is for Samsung to officially “unpack” the device in front of a crowd of press and special guests tonight at Radio City Music Hall. You can be there, too, in the form of this very live stream, provided by Samsung via their YouTube page. Everything kicks off at 7PM EDT. After checking out the announcement, be sure to stick around Phandroid for our coverage direct from the event!

  • Ant-Man

    I’m ready

    • Diego!

      Me too. Bring it on, Sammy!

  • camelsnot

    still surprised they would wait till 7pm to make the announcement. 10am is usually a good time. I guess they’re trying to get as much real time press as possible from outlets even on the west coast.

    • No_Nickname90

      Yea. I was surprised by the time to. My shows be coming on at that time. =.P

      • Lactose_the_Intolerant

        come on, man… you can record “Entertainment Tonight” just this once :p

        • No_Nickname90

          Alas, I have class at 6pm. Grr!! But I will make it my destiny to watch the unveiling when I get home.

  • Mickey M.

    Is this going to be a video of the event, or it’ll be a few people in a studio, talking about the event and reading their tweets live?

      It’s going to be a live stream just like unpacked 2012. I got to live stream it at work lol, it was awesome. This year will be no different!!!

      • No_Nickname90

        I read that as ‘liv’ instead of ‘l-eye-v’. So I didn’t know what you were talking about. LoL!!

  • M.B

    I prefer watching porn.

  • No_Nickname90

    I’ll be in class. So I’ll just watch the leftover videos. I don’t think I’ve ever watched something live, but I’m afraid of streaming issues. I would be mad if I miss something and have to wait for the ENTIRE show-cast to end before I can watch what I miss.

  • AaronMcCune

    I’ve been waiting impatiently for this unveiling but please Samsung, for the love of God release a Galaxy S device that doesn’t look almost exactly like every other one. You’ve been a game changer in basically every other department. It’s time for a new look.

    • ClayRogers

      What’s the point of changing the look just for the sake of changing the look? Apple and Samsung stick with what works.

  • Sinned66

    Why? It’s just a phone and texting machine for youngins.

    • Mike Reid

      They you’re on the wrong site.

      This is “phandroid”, not “grumpy old dudes”.

      Now get off my grass so I can see…

  • mirage03

  • hideeho100

    I will bet the little boy comes out, opens the box, and a bunch a fluff comes out.

    Love the music

  • John Slobodniuk

    gees they take their time!! hurry the fark up already

  • Sterling Mace

    One thing I know is I’ll never buy a phone with a physical home button, or any physical button for that matter.

    • HotInEER

      I agree. I rooted my S3 and use onscreen buttons and deactivated the hard keys.

    • Double_a2013

      Why the hate of physical key? O.o

  • HotInEER

    Man, they sure are taking their sweet time.

    • HotInEER

      Samsung, where 7pm doesn’t actually mean 7pm. Maybe they redid the clock and the whole space time continuum.

  • AndroidProfit

    Jesus lets friggin go already

  • Ganja Bobby

    is this the oscars or a smartphone unveiling? hurry up

  • Treyhunnid

    let’s see this so the letdown threads can begin

  • Treyhunnid

    at the hype

  • Sterling Mace

    Wooooo GS3.5!!!!

  • Davelle Allende

    I feel bad for making fun of Apple fans for the past 3 years. :-(

  • http://www.facebook.com/leo.marvin.182 Leo Marvin

    WOW, how awkward. from the not being able to understand the opening broken chinese to the douche in the black suit begging for applause to the annoying acting. what a shitty presentation. galaxy nexus user and apple hater here. they should be embarrassed.

  • james ortiz

    this phone is going to sell like hot pancakes at ihop

  • http://www.facebook.com/derrick.mcgalliard Derrick McGalliard

    nope amoled is not superior to lcd, i call bs on that, idc who dont agree

  • Cory Skelton

    This is not a good presentation. This is the first one I’ve ever watched, from now on I’ll wait and read about the good stuff afterwards.

    • redspear2

      yeah this is horrible

  • NDog

    Wish they would just tell us the vital information instead of acting it out

    • redspear2

      I feel like I am watching a late night infomercial….Who approved this. I still like the phone but I am ashamed to be watching this.

  • Double_a2013

    Lol So how long until they have CM on this thing?

  • http://www.facebook.com/AdamVanCuren Adam VanCuren

    Looks like the same models as before.. sticking with my iPhone…

    • Word Smithington

      Heaven forbid someone use the same design for their phone 2 years in a row. How’s that iPhone that has barely changed since 07 again?

  • NDog

    I have the Samsung Galaxy s2 and it would be a nice upgrade for me, but the un-necessary stupid acting and the fake enthusiasm. its making it difficult to watch

  • Nathan Aker

    Yeah the acting is a little over the top, they probably could of gone without it.

  • http://www.facebook.com/AdamVanCuren Adam VanCuren

    haha no one is clapping

  • famished

    That presentation sucked

  • hideeho100

    Wow! When I wave my hand over the phone, I sure hope it thinks that I am not the droid it is looking for.
    When I am looking at girls, I am sure glad the video I am watching pauses. I will NOT be running out to spend $699 for this feature. VERY happy I have a Nexus 4!

  • hideeho100

    Chris, I hope you go out and get some drinks in order to forget that presentation. WOW!

  • ScandaLeX

    I positively enjoyed Samsung’s theatrical unpack event.
