The Samsung Galaxy S4 has finally arrived! The revamped phone sports some pretty cool new software features but it looks and feels very similar to its predecessor, the Galaxy S3. Here is a summary of all the features of the Samsung Galaxy S4:
Dimensions: 5.46 X 2.75 X 0.31 inches
Screen: The 5-inch screen will feature a display of 1920 X 1080p and a Full HD Super AMOLED display.
Weight: The S4 might be slightly bigger, but Samsung managed to build it even lighter than its predecessor. It weighs in at 130g.
Battery: The new S4 will feature a 2600mAh, thought it’s unclear what that will mean for battery life.
Camera: The S3 camera had already curried good reviews from fans but Samsung built on that momentum, equipping the S4 with a 13-megapixel rear-facing camera and a 2-megapixel forward-facing camera. A cool new feature is the Samsung DualShot, which will allow users to take a photo with the front and rear camera simultaneously and combine them into a single photograph.
Colors: The S4 phone will be available in Black Mist and White Frost.
Software: Not surprisingly, the S4 comes stocked with the latest version of Android 4.2.2—Jelly Bean
Smart Scroll: An exciting new feature that allows you to scroll through a webpage just by tilting your phone. However, early reviews are coming in that the feature does not work well and is more frustrating than useful.
Smart Pause: Smart Pause also gives users the functionality to stop and start videos based on whether or not they are looking at the screen. It’s a useful feature, but it remains to be seen how often it would actually be put to use.
Group Play: Samsung now gives you the capabilities to share music, photos and games with the people around you. It allows for music to be played together as a group.
S Health: Health and fitness apps might be a thing of the past for S4 users. The built-in S Health works as a pedometer and also keeps track of food intake and sleeping patterns.
Launch Date: It’s expected to hit stores sometimes in Q2, most probably in April. The following carriers have committed to carrying the Samsung Galaxy S4: Verizon, AT&T, Cricket, Sprint, T-Mobile, and U.S. Cellular.
