The March 14 reveal event for Samsung's Galaxy S4 is just over two weeks away now, and the South Korean company wants the public to get in on the act.
Although the reveal itself won't be open to just anyone interested in waltzing into New York's Radio City Music Hall, Samsung is going to stream the Galaxy S4 event out to anyone who wants to see it. They're also inviting you to watch it in Times Square.
On Thursday morning, Samsung tweeted a post urging people to "Be ready 4 #TheNextGalaxy @TimesSquareNYC."
The tweet contained a link with more information on the event, saying "You can watch Samsung Unpacked via livestream and experience Samsung's new flagship smartphone at Times Square."
If you're not in New York City, though, there's no reason to worry. Just head on over to this YouTube page when the event goes live at 7 PM Eastern Standard Time and you can check out all the action for yourself.
As for the phone itself, rumor mongers seem to have settled on a good chunk of the Galaxy S4's specs, but there are some significant areas that remain a mystery. Previous rumors said that the Galaxy S4 would feature Samsung's new eight-core Exynos Octa processor, but new reports suggest the company has run into manufacturing problems. If that's the case, it might look to use a rival processor from Qualcomm that won't be as powerful.
There are also rumblings that Samsung will use an HD SoLux display instead of a SuperAMOLED screen, also due to manufacturing issues.
Whatever the case may be, we'll find out on March 14. In the meantime, here's a roundup of the rest of the S4's rumored specs:
- 4.99" full HD display (either SoLux or SuperAMOLED)
- 13-megapixel rear-facing camera capable of shooting 1080p video
- 2-megapixel front-facing camera capable of shooting 720p video
- 2GB RAM

- Plastic back and aluminum sides
- Removable battery
- 16, 32 and 64GB internal storage options
