Samsung officially unveils Galaxy S4 smartphone

Samsung’s high-end Galaxy S4 smartphone has finally been unveiled at an event held in New York City, USA.

Surprisingly enough Samsung’s Galaxy S4 does not bring any major innovations – instead the smartphone is an upgraded version of the Galaxy S3. It measures 140.1 x 71.8 x 7.7 mm and packs the expected 5-inch Super AMOLED display at Full HD resolution (1920 x 1080 pixels, 441 ppi).

Also Samsung somehow managed to include the rumored Exynos 5 Octa eight-core processor with big.LITTLE architecture. The chip features two computational clusters with four cores in each one – the first one is based on powerful ARM Cortex-A15 cores and runs demanding tasks, while the second one has ARM Cortex-A7 cores and handles light applications. The three-core PowerVR SGX544MP3 GPU provides graphics.

The specs list continues with 2 GB of RAM, 16/32/64 GB of internal memory, a microSD card slot, 13 MP rear and 2 MP front cameras with Dual Camera function that allows both cameras to work at the same time, MHL 2.0, Bluetooth 4.0, Wi-Fi and IR LED. The battery that powers the smartphone packs 2600 mAh of energy and supports wireless charging.

Samsung’s Galaxy S4 smartphone runs Android 4.2.2 (Jelly Bean) but will become commercially available at the end of April 2013. Pricing is still unknown.
