We had some reasons to believe that Samsung will choose North America to unveil the latest iteration of its flagship Galaxy S series, and today we have the official confirmation that the Galaxy S4 will make its debut in New York on March 14.

The news comes straight from the boss of the Samsung mobile division, JK Shin, who said to Edaily that the company chose New York because it was “bombarded with requests from U.S. mobile carriers to unveil the Galaxy S4 in the country.”

The American debut of the Galaxy S4 was previously suggested by rumors, as well as a tweet from noted industry insider Eldar Murtazin. It’s the first time since the original Galaxy S in 2010, which was unveiled at the now defunct CTIA convention, when Samsung picks US to launch its flagship.

The latest set of rumors announce some major changes coming to the Galaxy S4, including an LCD display instead of the marquee AMOLED, and a Qualcomm 600 chipset instead of an Exynos processor. Check out our coverage for more details.

Android Authority will be attending the New York Galaxy S4 launch event. Stay tuned for more information!
