Samsung Galaxy S4 Promotional Spot

This ad for the new Samsung Galaxy S IV smartphone is deliberately sketchy on the details.

The release date for the highly anticipated Samsung Galaxy S4 smartphone is only a few days away, now scheduled for 3/14/13. Samsung has taken a page from the Apple marketing playbook and been very tight lipped about the feature and functionality of the phone, and no one has seen any pictures as of yet (any pics you see of this phone prior to release are mock-ups and what-ifs.)

This video is kinda cute, if cute is your thing. Taking the age-old marketing tactic of telling you nothing about the phone other than it is an incredible surprise awaiting you! These types of marketing campaigns can backfire though; remember how the Segway was the greatest invention since electricity? Harrumph!

Good luck Samsung!
