The Samsung Galaxy S IV features a 5-inch 1080p Super AMOLED display with a 441ppi pixel density, like Nokia’s Lumia 920 it features the ability to let you use the device whilst wearing gloves. It’s a speed devil with its 1.6GHz octa core Exynos 5 processor (1.9GHz quad core Qualcomm processor in certain markets) and packs 2GB of RAM together with a selection of 16GB, 32GB or 64GB of memory which is accompanied by a microSD card slot, it’s powered by a 2,600mAh and runs on Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean.
The Galaxy S IV is a truly connected device, it will feature the super speedy WiFi 802.11ac which haws been tested to reach speeds of over 300MBps, it will also feature hexa band LTE with speeds of upto 100MBps, depending on your market, along with all of that, it will feature 42.2MBps HSPA+ for the few markets that haven’t gotten LTE yet. Like the HTC One it will pack an Infrared sensor to control your TV through Samsung’s WatchON service. It also packs Bluetooth 4.0 LE, NFC and MHL 2.0, which is backwards compatible with MHL and unlike the Galaxy S III, it doesn’t need a specially branded cable. It also features WiFi Direct.
The cameras also feature quite a bit. On the pack is a 13MP autofocus sensor with a f/2.2 aperture, on the front is a 2MP camera, none of which features any shutter lag according to Samsung. The cameras support dual video capture mode as well as dual video calling mode, both of which allow you to make use of both of the cameras simultaneously. Drama Shot uses burst mode to make creative GIF animations and Sound & Shot allows you to capture up to 9 seconds of sound for your still photo.
The Samsung Galaxy S IV is smart, so smart that it features Smart Scroll, which allows you to scroll when tilting the device and moving your eyes, and Smart Pause, which pauses your videos whilst your eyes wonder. Air View turns your finger into a S Pen allowing you to hover it over the screen to view notifications and more. Group Play lets you stream music and videos to S IV devices that are close by to create a surround sound effect or to play games against each other.
Pricing has not yet been revealed, but the Samsung Galaxy S IV will be available in 155 countries from 327 carriers starting from the end of April.
