As was foretold by Samsung itself and a billion internet leaks, the all-new Samsung Galaxy S4 has just been announced this evening. The headline specs of the new high-end Android phone are a 5″ Super AMOLED display running at the “Full HD” resolution of 1920 x 1080 generating a 441ppi density, powered by an eight-core processor alongside 2GB of RAM. The base unit offers 16GB of storage space, plus there will be 32GB and 64GB options.
The Galaxy S4 will launch in 3G and 4G models from the end of April. And Samsung’s officially calling it the Galaxy S4. Without the Roman numerals. And look. A PHYSICAL BUTTON:
And that’s it. A big S III. The chassis of the Galaxy S4 is built from polycarbonate materials, no posh metal here. There’s also an IR LED control for pointing it at your television, removable 2,600mAh battery and a Micro SD card slot.
The camera is a 13megapixel unit, plus there’s a 2MP front-facing camera and a “Dual Camera” feature that lets you meld front and rear images into one clip or still, pictured above. That got a little clap from the crowd at the launch event.
Samsung’s S Translator tool lets you interact with foreign people, live, without getting angry about it like Jeremy Clarkson.
And there’s loads more. Samsung’s still rambling on about all its new software features. We’ll whack up some high-res images as soon as Samsung’s done with its bizarre post-modern launch event.
