Samsung Galaxy S4 coming this April

After it’s huge success with the Samsung Galaxy S3 worldwide with 50 million devices sold, what does the new Samsung flagship brings? The Samsung Galaxy S4 just released less than a week ago will be available next month under two different variations.

The main difference between the two different versions of the Samsung Galaxy S4 lies at the heart of the device within its processor. One version will be powered by a 1.9 GHz quad-core processor (North American version) and the rest of the world will have a 1.6 GHz Octa-Core processor. The rest of the specs are pretty much the same for either versions.

The Samsung Galaxy S4 just got bigger by 0.2 inches screen-wise compared to its predecessor as its screen now reaches 5 inches, a nearly phablet phone. Despite the small screen size increase, its quite noticeable. It will come loaded with Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean and will come in 3 storage format, 16GB, 32GB and 64GB with the possibility of expanding memory thanks to a MicroSD slot.


The phone will come with two cameras, a rear camera with 13 megapixels as well as a front camera with 2 megapixels. The interesting feature with these cameras is that you will be able to use both cameras at the same time.

One great innovation is the introduction of Smart Pause, which works by tracking your eye and pausing videos if your not watching your screen. The eye scrolling feature should work the same when browsing on the internet.

Samsung also loaded the Galaxy S4 with a lot of in house software such as S Health which tracks your health status, S Translator a translation software and S Voice Drive a driving assistant.

Most of the software innovations found in the S4 will be ported to other Samsung devices in the future such as the Samsung Galaxy S3 and the Galaxy Note 2.

One innovation that’s not going to be portable is the Samsung WatchON feature which uses the built-in IR in the Galaxy S4 to control electronic devices using IR such as your TV. Pretty neat, your Samsung S4 really does it all.

Speculations regarding wireless charging turned out to be true, the Galaxy S4 will have wireless charging as an extra feature thought. A costly one actually as it will cost you around 100$ to set it up. Add to this Samsung’s new S View cover which allows you to have a look at your screen through a little slot displaying relevant informations.

The Samsung Galaxy S4 will be available in two colors, black mist and white frost.
