Samsung Galaxy S4 is Around the Corner

Samsung Galaxy S IV

Samsung fans have all reasons for celebration: the new smartphone Samsung Galaxy S4 will be officially presented in New York on March 14 at the event called "Samsung Unpacked".

The Korean electronics giant has already sent the invitations out. According to traditions, they do not have a word about what occasion it's gonna be. However, some sources of the company we can rely on reported: the new smartphone from the Galaxy family will be presented, although they previously announced that the new S4 will be launched a month later - on April 14.

As for the technical information, it is not disclosed from the manufacturer, of course. But -again- some details are already known anyway. Here they are:

  • The new smartphone will run on an 1.8 GHz 8-core Exynos 5 processor. The Exynos 5 OCTA includes two quad-core CPUs and it automatically adapts to your needs, saving up to 70% energy without sacrificing performance.
  • It will be very convenient to see photos and play some games on its 4.99 inch and full HD screen (1920 x 1080 resolution) with a 441 ppi pixel density.
  • Users are welcome to take pictures wuth two cameras: a 13-megapixel camera and additional 2-megapixel one. PhotoSphere integration will enable you to capture 360° degree images and give your photos and entirely new dimension.
  • Samsung Galaxy S4 will come out with up to 64 GB of internal memory and 2 GB of RAM.

Samsung S PenAs for the operating system, the phone will feature the latest version of Android - Jelly Bean 4.2.2. Samsung is also reportedly planning to install its new software to Galaxy S4, which will ensure its safety. This software is called Knox and it will make possible to store personal and corporate files without worries, which is very convenient of course. Moreover, this program can provide 256-bit encryption algorithm (AES) and will also provide an opportunity to create a virtual private network using a single application.

The smartphone will support the fourth-generation LTE networks and wireless communication technology called NFC. Rumors say there can be up to 6 different variants of the Samsung Galaxy S4.

This device willl be available in both black and white with a storage capacity of 16 GB, 32 GB and 64 GB. I would not want to accuse anyone, but the RAM layout looks very similar to what one very famous American company makes with its equally famous smartphone. The question is: is there any point for such models' division provided the Samsung Galaxy S4 will have a memory card slot anyway?
