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.

Microsoft Office 365/Dell XPS 15 2-in-1

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)

It’s useful for office tasks as well as pragmatic labelling of equipment and storage – just don’t get too excited and label everything in sight!

Brother MFC-L8900CDW

The Brother MFC-L8900CDW is an absolute stand out. I struggle to fault it.

MSI GT75 TITAN

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.

MSI GE63 Raider

If you’re looking to invest in your next work horse laptop for work or home use, you can’t go wrong with the MSI GE63.

MSI GS65 Stealth Thin

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
