    The laser keyboard was actually leaked as an available DOCKING station not built into the phone
  • Gamer 3/14/2013 10:24:50 PM
    This is sooooooo cool
  • ShowMeSpecs 3/14/2013 10:25:01 PM
    I have no doubt the HTC One will be up to par with the GS4. However i feel that this will be a repeat of One X+ vs GS3. The one x+ was probably even better than the GS4 but hardly anyone knew about it due to poor marketing.

    Here's the feed Molly is talking about: twitter.com

  • Master G 3/14/2013 10:26:49 PM
    Or they could add a fingerprint scanner to it.
  • JSL 3/14/2013 10:27:06 PM
    Hate the idea that the international version is supposed to have the Exynos while the US version to have the Snapdragon....similar to the S3 (quad vs. dual)
  • John Falcone 3/14/2013 10:27:24 PM
    Re: HTC One vs. Samsung GS4: What Samsung brings to the table is marketing $$$. That's gonna hurt HTC, even if the One is the "better" phone.
  • Jerome Jackson 3/14/2013 10:27:34 PM
    I hope the Galaxy S4 is powerful than its predecessor. My Samsung Captivate is dying here!!! D':
  • madmacs 3/14/2013 10:28:04 PM
    @ john.falcone. That's why I said I'd love a S4 mini to be a true copy of its bigger brother, unlike the S3 mini. I personally would pay the same price even if the display was slightly smaller. As long as the rest was the same.
  • tita♥ 3/14/2013 10:28:15 PM
    I hope that sgs4 will have a home button!!!
  • Aractor 3/14/2013 10:28:18 PM
    @JSL Android isn't even optimized for multicore CPUs, it all just sucks up battery life
  • Phynomtalk 3/14/2013 10:28:26 PM
    Feature set to feature set, I don't think the HTC One is a better phone...
  • JimG 3/14/2013 10:28:31 PM
    I have a Note 2 (best phone ever) wonder how much of the G4 will be ported over to the Note 2
  • David Davidson 3/14/2013 10:28:34 PM
    I'm eager to replace my Galaxy Nexus.
  • Hal Hamilton 3/14/2013 10:28:41 PM
    LOL...CNET Dating Game.
  • tk 3/14/2013 10:28:48 PM
    From South Africa myself, anticipating something exciting
  • John Falcone 3/14/2013 10:28:48 PM
    @madmacs. Agree -- would be cool if same spec phone was available in multiple screen sizes.
  • Tonarheim 3/14/2013 10:29:01 PM
    @john.falcone agreed. But the HTC One mic and speakers IS a really substantial upper edge - plus the premium material and cooler design
  • Henry 3/14/2013 10:29:10 PM
    Why is Samsung having this event so late in the day?
  • tanakk 3/14/2013 10:29:16 PM
    Pleeeease have an Exynos proc...
  • DroidNutz 3/14/2013 10:29:26 PM
    Galaxy s4, oh yeah, the next big thing! As long as they don't follow the treand od some other big name companies whos shall remain nameless.
  • Andrew Munsell 3/14/2013 10:29:45 PM
    Looking forward to iPhone 5s/6. I have the AT&T S2 and it has many, many issues. Battery Life, WiFi connectivity, 3G/4G(LTE) connectivity, and quite a few other minor issues.
  • Rhombus 3/14/2013 10:29:52 PM
    its gonna all be about battery life guys
  • LushSushy 3/14/2013 10:30:03 PM
    Why is the phone screen size just keep getting bigger and biggeer.. Phone should not have more than 4 inch in its phone... Why cant they improve features and make it slimmer.. I hope one day laser keyboard comes:). Meanwhile you can buy a small prjector for your phone so its look like hologram :)
  • Rjagent 3/14/2013 10:30:46 PM
    Waiting to see the next Galaxy even though I'm an Apple fan boy I would like to see what this has to offer and brings to the phone market.
  • Xavier 3/14/2013 10:30:54 PM
    Man cant wait to see the unveiling of the device.. would be nice if the eye scroll does come out and would be even nicer to have an update for the note 2 with the features ya digg
  • QuikMix 3/14/2013 10:31:06 PM
    Will the S4 be the only phone unveiled tonight or do we expect to see the next note and perhaps upcoming Windows phones?
  • enohp trams 3/14/2013 10:31:12 PM
    Are we suppose to be watching something right now? Or does it start at 7:00
  • Rjagent 3/14/2013 10:31:38 PM
    Can't wait to see S4 vs i5S
  • charles.cooper 3/14/2013 10:31:41 PM
    The Samsung presser gets under officially at 7PM ET.
  • Ezequiel 3/14/2013 10:31:55 PM
    is samsung going to include an 544MP3 GPU instead a mali T604?
  • Jessica Dolcourt 3/14/2013 10:31:55 PM
    Hey, everyone! We're finally getting settled in our seats. I can almost feel my toes and fingers again. Brr!
  • John Falcone 3/14/2013 10:32:16 PM
    Jessica Dolcourt in the house!
  • Waikwong 3/14/2013 10:32:53 PM
    Google/Android is good, Samsung not so much... I hope Samsung will leave Android alone
  • W K Jackson 3/14/2013 10:33:09 PM
    After hearing and reading all the talk about the Galaxy S 3 & 4.In your opinion. Would it be worth for me to trade my S3 for the S4.
  • Jessica Dolcourt 3/14/2013 10:33:13 PM
    Samsung was *not* organized getting us in. Roger, Shara, Maggie, Dan, and the crew basically engaged in a comedy of errors (minus the comedy) to navigate 4 separate lines to finally get in.
  • Uvas 3/14/2013 10:33:19 PM
    Saludos desde México!!!
  • Hmza Fahz 3/14/2013 10:33:37 PM
    Nexus 4 FTW!
  • Rami 3/14/2013 10:33:38 PM
    Time here 2:32 am .. Staying late to see the unliesh of the S4..
  • Jerome Jackson 3/14/2013 10:33:46 PM
    Does anyone have any experience of Galaxy S3 to randomly shutdown or freezing? Even though I have an older phone (Galaxy S Captivate), I don't want to end up with Samsung and end up with a sluggish phone before my contract is up for ATT.... :0
  • Jessica Dolcourt 3/14/2013 10:33:54 PM
    @LushSushy remember when companies used to compete over who had the smallest phone? Oh, how times have changed. Also, Tetris was the most exciting thing going on.
  • Chander 3/14/2013 10:34:02 PM
    This is is Samsung's moment to prove they can be the new Smartphone Kings... Please don't mess this up :')
  • Colin Cento 3/14/2013 10:34:13 PM
    watching and listening from Wall Street
  • Rhombus 3/14/2013 10:34:15 PM
    Good start then Jessica.
