The Samsung Galaxy S 4 Becomes A Reality
The Samsung Galaxy S IV is official! For the last year the since the launch of the Galaxy S III, rumors surrounding the Galaxy S 4 have been all over the place. From crazy speculation to now confirmed features the Galaxy S 4 is born. Late in the day yesterday, the gossip has been put to rest. Samsung took to Radio City Music hall in New York City to announce the latest and greatest in Galaxy. Let’s take a gander at what the new Galaxy S 4 has to offer.
The Samsung Galaxy S 4 is finally here. Shortly before the official announcement of the phone a few leaky pictures and videos of the S4 were found meandering around the interwebs showing off a handset that looked awfully familiar to the S3. Surprisingly enough it was indeed the S4. The build of the Galaxy S 4 is very similar to the GS3. The sizing differences are almost unrecognizable. The GS3 measures in at 5.38 x 2.78 x 0.34 inches while the new GS4 is just fractions different at 5.38 x 2.75 x 0.31 inches. With this size change, the bezel has shrunk and the screen has grown from 4.8 inches on the GS3 to a solid 5.0 inches on the GS4. The new five inch screen is a Super AMOLED flavor that clocks a full 1080×1920 pixel resolution at 441 pixels per inch. Internally the battery in the S4 also catches a bump to a 2600 mAh cell! Delving a bit deeper the GS4 proves to have a healthy amount of power at its core. The processors of the S4 will come in two variations depending on where you are in the world. Some will get their go from a quad core 1.9 GHz Snapdragon S4 Pro processor while others will be running with a quad core 1.6 GHz Exynos 5 Octa chipset. Additional graphics processing will be provided by a PowerVR SGX544MP3 GPU. Add in 2 GB of RAM, up to 32 GB of internal storage, and expandable microSD memory up to 64 GB. Around back of the Galaxy S 4 you’ll find a 13 mega pixel camera with an LED flash and a host of tricks up its sleeve, while up front a 2 mega pixel shooter is available (to watch you while you sleep!). We can also expect the standards like, GPS, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, MHL, DLNA and NFC functionality. You can expect the very latest in Android version 4.2.2 running the show, of course LTE connectivity and S applications all over the place. While the design of the GS4 has not changed dramatically, Samsung has taken a whole new approach to software crazy, as this new phone is packed with some amazing features. The Galaxy S 4 is expected to launch on all over the place sometime between April 1st and June 30th and is slated to make an appearance on all four major US carriers.
