NEW YORK (AP) - Samsung Electronics is kicking up its competition with Apple with its new Galaxy S 4 smartphone, which has a larger, sharper screen than its predecessor, the best-selling S III.
Samsung is revealing the phone at an event in New York Thursday. The Galaxy S 4, which crams a 5-inch screen into a body slightly smaller than the S III's, will go on sale globally in the April to June period.
In the U.S., it will be sold by all four national carriers - Verizon Wireless, AT&T, Sprint Nextel and T-Mobile USA - as well as by smaller ones US Cellular and Cricket.
Samsung didn't say what the phone will cost, but it can be expected to start at $200 with a two-year contract in the U.S.
