The company sent an invitation to Australian media today detailing a launch event in Sydney for the Galaxy S4 titled "Set 4 launch".

The invite invites attendees to "discover the next big thing" and includes an image of the back of the Galaxy S4 smartphone.

The Galaxy S4 was officially unveiled last month at an event in New York City. The phone retains a similar look and feel to its predecessor but includes a 4.99in full HD display, comes with a 13-megapixel camera and features a number of Samsung-exclusive software features.

While there's been no word yet on pricing details, Australia's major carriers have all confirmed they will sell the Samsung Galaxy S4 by the end of April. Telstra, Optus, Vodafone Australia and Virgin Mobile have been confirmed among a total of 327 global carriers that will sell the device.

The revealed launch of the Galaxy S4 comes just a day after HTC announced that its flagship One smartphone, seen as the main Android competitor to the S4, would be available through all Australian carriers on the same Tuesday 23 March date.

The HTC One was unveiled back in February at multiple events in New York and London, but the launch has been delayed by component supply issues.

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
