Samsung Galaxy S IV (S4) - EXPANSYS

"After the incredible success of the Samsung Galaxy S III (S3) Android Smartphone, which sold over 40 million units worldwide, Samsung returns with its new flagship, the Samsung Galaxy S IV (S4)."



We can rest assured that with the company's goal of shipping 10 million units per month, the South Korean manufacturer has poured its very best into its new flagship smartphone. And with an unprecedented processor, a Full HD screen and a 13 MP camera, the Galaxy S IV (S4) has what it takes to take the smartphone world by storm.

With the new high end device, the company plans to continue and evolve the tradition set by its predecessors and introduce a series of innovative features that will further facilitate our use of smartphones and make it even more intuitive.

Officially announced at the Mobile Unpacked Event on March 14th in New York, the Samsung Galaxy S4 is a stylish smartphone that bears striking resemblance, design wise, to its older brother the Samsung Galaxy SIII. But even if its design reminds us strongly of the previous generation Galaxy S smartphone, the Galaxy S4 is an innovative high end smartphone that encompasses a series of new features that will tremendously simplify your busy life.

Snapdragon 600 CPU : When the Galaxy S4 (IV) meets pure firepower

Equipped with a powerful quad-core Snapdragon 600 CPU clocking in at 1.9 GHz and coupled with 2GB of RAM, the Galaxy S4 is a true smartphone powerhouse that can take on any task and application with complete and utter ease. Whether you’re taking photos, playing video games, or simply browsing the web, Samsung’s new high end smartphone is the undisputed champion of power. It will provide you with an incredibly immersive user experience based on speed and fluidity.

Super AMOLED Full HD display: breathtaking image quality

Is your Smartphone always by your side? In that case you should enjoy exceptional image quality. With a screen that's 5-inches large diagonally the S4 offers an impressive resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels for incredibly accurate crystal clear image reproduction with vivid colors. With a 441 ppi pixel density, your eyes won't be able to distinguish the pixels, which ensures excellent visual comfort.

13 MP camera: capture life's most precious moments

Of course we haven't forgotten about SGS4's multi-media features. The Galaxy S IV (S4) features an amazing 13 MP sensor with LED flash for high quality snapshots. A multitude of different settings will allow you to add visual effects, edit photos or simply share them in a snap via the S - Beam feature. Android 4.2 Jelly Bean's PhotoSphere integration will enable you to capture 360° degree images and give your photos and entirely new dimension.
A 2M camera in the front of the device will enable you to place video calls. Furthermore, Samsung also integrated the Dual Camera and Dual Call functionalities, which allow you to use both cameras simultaneously for new dimensional pictures, which you can then merge together by choosing among eight different frame effects. Moreover, by using the Dual Call option you can show your friends and family what you’re looking at while video chatting with them.

Other innovative camera features include the Eraser, which allows you to delete the items you don’t wish to appear in your image, Sound & Shot, which shoots a 5 second audio along with your picture, and Story Album, which permits you to create a digital album with context.

Control your Galaxy S4 smartphone with your eyes and the tips of your fingers

With the Samsung Galaxy S3 Samsung got us used to its intuitive features like Smart Stay and Smart Rotation. With the SGS4, the South Korean manufacturer continues to evolve with the introduction of Smart Pause and Smart Scroll. You now no longer have to touch the screen when you wish to scroll the pages you are viewing; a simple positioning of your eyes is enough for the page to scroll as if it were magic. Moreover, Smart Pause ensures you never have to pause your videos again if you have to glance away from your phone; the SGS4 will do it for you automatically and pause the video if your eyes are no longer fixed on the screen.
You can also control your Galaxy S4 (IV) Smartphone by simply moving your hand. Whether it’s to turn a page, answer a call or browse the web, a simple hand gesture will suffice thanks to the integrated infra red.
Similarly as the Galaxy Note 2, the Samsung Galaxy S4 (IV) also includes the Air View functionality, which enables you to preview images, emails, articles, appointments and other files by simply hovering over them with your fingers. No touching of the screen necessary.

For those of you who travel abroad often and don’t necessarily speak the local language of your destination, the S-Translator will come extremely handy. Simply speak to your Galaxy S4 (SIV) smartphone and it will translate it into the local language and vice versa. A very practical feature when you’re eating out in a foreign restaurant.
