Samsung Galaxy S4 announced
So, another day, another cycle of smartphone releases, and here we are with the latest flagship by the South Korean conglomerate Samsung, with their Galaxy S4 all set to conquer the world, or at least help advance the Android cause and cannibalize on Apple’s iPhone sales along the way. Just what kind of goodies does the latest Galaxy S4 pack underneath the hood? Not everyone is going to agree with the design cues for sure, where it comes with a larger display and a minimized bezel, housed in a body that measures 130 grams and is a mere 7.9mm slim.
The Galaxy S4 is an exercise in oxymorons, as it is slimmer yet stronger, not to mention having less to hold and yet has more to see. You can choose from Black Mist and White Frost colors at first, although Samsung did promise that they will roll out a host of other color options down the road. The Galaxy S4’s main draw would be what they call the world’s first 5” Full HD Super AMOLED display at a whopping 441ppi for stunning viewing quality, while boasting of Corning’s new Gorilla Glass 3 that makes it more durable than it already is.
At the back lies a 13-megapixel camera, with the ability to make use of both front and back cameras simultaneously, allowing both the photographer as well as the subjects being shot to be captured simultaneously, making sure that you are no longer left out of the picture, now how about that? Not only that, there is also a ‘Dual Video Call’ function that lets you make and receive a video call with friends and family, at the same time showing just how disheveled you look during the call.
Connectivity options include HSPA+42 Mbps and 4G LTE, and you can also choose from 16GB, 32GB and 64GB capacities, where all of them can be expanded via a microSD memory card slot. The Galaxy S4 will arrive globally in the second quarter of the year for a yet unannounced price, but it sure is not going to come cheap.
