Samsung officially launches Galaxy S IV


After closely guarding the secret entrusted to him, the messenger from Samsung, Jeremy, has opened the box to reveal the most anticipated handset of the year. The Samsung Galaxy S IV is finally official and the company claims it is “A life companion for a richer, simpler life”.


The official specs show that many of our earlier reports about the Galaxy S IV are apparently true. Like we mentioned, there are two versions of the Galaxy S IV, one only for America and the other for the rest of the world. The US version will feature a 1.9 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 APQ8064T processor while the rest of the world will get a Galaxy S IV with the 1.6 GHz Samsung Exynos 5 Octa processor.

The Galaxy S IV features a Super AMOLED 4.99 inch display with 1920 x 1080 pixel resolution. The phone which looks almost identical to the previous Galaxy S III, has a larger and sharper display. As mentioned earlier, the Galaxy S IV is made out of polycarbonate plastic, which has managed in keeping the device very light at 130g.

The Galaxy S IV, as expected, has a 13 megapixel camera with Auto-focus and zero shutter lag. The device has a decent 2 megapixel front facing camera to support video calls. The smartphone runs on the Android Jelly Bean OS and has Samsung’s traditional TouchWiz Nature UI. The handset has a battery of 2600 mAh, which it claims wouldn’t drain so fast.

Specifications of the Samsung Galaxy S IV:

  • 4.99 inch Super AMOLED display
  • 1920 x 1080 pixels resolution
  • Exynos 5 Octa processor (Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 in US)
  • 2 GB RAM

  • 16/32/64 GB internal memory
  • microSD slot up to 64 GB

Yes, feature wise the S4 is truly brilliant. We just hope it will be priced reasonably.

Specs wise I wouldn’t say there is a big leap from S3 to S4, but yes, there are some cool new features introduced in the new version
