Samsung Galaxy S4 Unveiled, Set for April 26 Release

Samsung an hour ago unveiled its flagship device for 2013 at New York's Radio City Music Hall. The Samsung Galaxy S4 will have an April 26th release date and will rollout with a staggering 327 operators across 155 countries. Slightly bigger than its predecessor, the Galaxy SIV features a 5-inch Super OLED screen with a whopping 441 ppi resolution. Forget the dual-core and quad-core chipsets found in other high-end phones: the Galaxy S4 has a stunning eight-core Samsung Exynos 1.6GHz processor, although certain regions would have a Galaxy S4 with a 1.9GHz quad-core Qualcomm chip. The Galaxy S4 features 2GB of RAM, a removable 2600 mAh battery, humidity and temperature sensors, 13MP rear camera, 2MP front camera, NFC, 4G, and weight of only 130 grams. Android Jelly Bean 4.2.1 is the software on board the Galaxy SIV, with Samsung's TouchWiz user interface having been given a spruce up before being slapped on top.

What Else You Need To Know

  • The Galaxy S4 has a smarter eye tracking software,, including Smart Pause, which stops the video you're watching if your eyes drift away; Smart Scroll, which will move the screen up or down when you tilt the phone and look at the screen at the same time; and Air View, which lets you use your finger as an S Pen by giving you a preview of an email, calendar appointment, image gallery or video just by hovering your finger over it.
