At an event in New York last night, Samsung unveiled their next-generation Galaxy S phone dubbed as the Galaxy S4. Unlike the design changes we’ve witnessed in the last three iterations of the Galaxy S devices, Samsung has decided to keep the curvy design unchanged found on the Galaxy S III and the Galaxy Note 2.
The 7.9mm phone runs Android 4.2.2 out of the box and features a 4.99-inch 1920×1080 full HD Super AMOLED Display, hexa-band LTE support, 1.6GHz Exynos 5410 Octa-core or 1.9GHz Snapdragon 600 quad-core processor (it will be dependent on the region), 2GB RAM, 13MP rear-facing camera with 2MP on the front, NFC, wireless charging support, Bluetooth 4.0, Wi-Fi 802.11b/g/n/ac, microSD card slot, 16/32/64GB internal memory and 2600mAh battery.
However, just like the Galaxy S III, the successor also relies on software optimisations. For instance, you’d find features like Smart Scroll, Smart Pause, Air View, Drama Shot, S Health, S Translator and lots more.
Samsung will start the rollout of the device from end of the April in black and white colours.
