Samsung's next flagship smartphone has arrived and some are wondering if Apple should be nervous.
The eagerly-awaited successor to the S3 was unveiled at a glitzy New York event tonight. Launching on 327 carriers in 55 countries beginning late April, the S4 delivers a number of impressive attributes, including:
- 5-inch 1080p 441ppi Super AMOLED display
- 1.9GHz quad-core Snapdragon processor
- Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean
- 4G LTE
- 13 MP camera
- 2MP front-facing camera
- Expandable storage via microSD
- 2GB of RAM
- 16GB, 33GB, and 64GB memory options
The Galaxy S4 is 136.5 m long by 70.6 mm wide. It weighs 130 grams. Factor in hover-style gesture features, and a boatload of wicked cool native apps and services from Samsung, and the Galaxy S4 is a mighty fine smartphone, fans of the device are saying upon first impression.
"We have taken technology and innovation forward to get closer to what matters in life," said the head of mobile for Samsung, JK Shin. "We are committed to innovation. We are always listening to people around the world to hear what they really want."
