Earlier, Samsung held an event to announce it’s highly anticipated Galaxy S4 device (successor of the highly successful Samsung Galaxy S3) and it appears to meet all the expectations thrown at it. It is one of the most important event for Samsung this year (Check out how HTC and LG troll Samsung in the event). As a successor to the S3, it looks fairly similar to the GS3 physically (yeah the plastic build remains) but internally, it packs a much powerful package.
The Samsung Galaxy S4 includes either an Exynos 5 chip from Samsung or a Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro processor (depending on your region), with a full 2G of RAM and a huge 2,600mAh batter. You’ll be able to get this beast with 16, 32, or 64 G of storage, along with a microSD slot for expansion. We have an improvement in camera to 13MP from 8MP and many great software which come along with it. Though most of the software is not very useful or not something which will be useful in everyday usage, but the question is why not? Anything is better than nothing right?
It spots a 5-inches 1080p Super AMOLED screen which is longer. Yeah longer. And no one says anything this time. But undoubtedly, the screen looks amazing with over 400ppi available for your eyes to lust. 441ppi to be exact. It is also thinner and lighter than the Galaxy S3. In fact, it is only 0.1mm thicker than the iPhone 5. And it runs the most current version of Android which is the Android 4.2.2. And yes, yes the smart scroll is there which allows you to scroll up and down by tilting the device up and down and to pause videos when you are not paying attention. Sounds neat.
We dont have any pricing yet but it is expected to be priced similarly to the price of Samsung Galaxy S3 when it is first launched last year. We can start seeing it available as early as April and when it arrives in our shores, it will be May at the earliest.
So what is your verdict? Will the Samsung Galaxy S4 be the ONE? Will the iPhone remain at the top with iPhone 5S? Will HTC or NOKIA come out with an answer?
