Rumor Mill: Samsung Galaxy S4 Update

With Mobile World Congress in full swing and dozens of manufacturers rolling out new devices, it's time to update the rumors surounding the most anticipated Android devise of the years, the Samsung Galaxy S4.

Firstly, Samsung has confirmed that it will be unveiling it's new flagship device on March 14 at an event that they are calling "Samsung Unpacked". Formal invitations have already been issued to the press. Samsung will also live stream the event on their Youtube page at 7p.m. EST.

Secondly, Samsung is partnering with Visa to add secure mobile payment technology, called PayWave to it's devices. While neither company named the Galaxy S4 specifically, it would be a fair guess that as the company's flagship and successor to the most popular Android phone of all time the S4 would be the first ship with Visa's new secure payment applet.

Thirdly, CNET reports that Samsung is considering embedding it's new security software package, "KNOX", with the S4. KNOX is part of Samsung's SAFE initiative (Samsung For Enterprise) which ads security features that comply with many corporate IT policies and Government requirements.
