Samsung presents the Galaxy S 4, the new “life companion for a richer, simpler and fuller life.” The beauty of the phone is the highly crafted design encompassing a larger screen size and battery, minimized bezel; all housed in a light (130g) and slim (7.9mm) shape. The Samsung Galaxy S 4 is slimmer yet stronger, with “less to hold yet more to see.” At launch, two color options will be available – Black Mist and White Frost; with a variety of additional color options to follow later this year.
The Galaxy S 4 has the world’s first Full HD Super AMOLED display. Its 5-inch large screen has 441ppi for incredible viewing quality. The Samsung Galaxy S 4 also utilizes Corning’s new Gorilla Glass 3. Equipped with a 13 megapixel rear camera, the Galaxy S 4 also boasts a ‘Dual Camera’ function that allows simultaneous use of both front and rear cameras. At the same time, the ‘Dual Video Call’ function enables you to “make and receive a video call with friends and family while showing what you are looking at during the call.”
With the Galaxy S 4’s ‘Group Play’ function, users can enjoy music, photos, documents and games with those around them without even requiring a Wi-Fi or cellular signal. This innovative feature enables users to connect directly with others to share, play and co-create content and entertainment instantly. Its ‘Share Music’ option allows users to have the same song playing on multiple phones in sync to create the best “party atmosphere.”
The phone also features an innovative ‘Air View’ function which allows users to hover with their fingers to preview the content of an email, S Planner, image gallery or video without having to open it. With ‘Air Gesture’, you can change the music track, scroll up and down a web page, or accept a call with a wave of your hand.
Samsung Galaxy S 4 will be available from April globally including US, partnering with AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile, Verizon Wireless, as well as US Cellular and Cricket. In Europe, Samsung Galaxy S 4 is partnering with global mobile operators such as Deutsche Telecom, EE, H3G, Orange, Telenor, Telia Sonera, Telefonica, and Vodafone.
