The New Samsung Galaxy S4 Android Smartphone

Updated on March 18, 2013

The new Samsung Galaxy S4 was unveiled on the 14th March 2013 and showed the way forward for other smart phones.

Imagine watching a movie on your new Samsung Galaxy S4 and your attention goes elsewhere, the video you were watching will automatically pause until your eyes are looking back at the video.

If you were to travel somewhere and take photos on the 13 megapixel camera and wanted to make an album from your travels, the S4 Android smartphone will show all the photos from that date or the place you took them which makes it very simple to make the desired album. This saves you from looking through hundreds of your old and new photos and choosing the ones you want.

The new Samsung Galaxy S4 is evolutionary rather revolutionary in the software department, but not in hardware. The design from it's predecessor hasn't changed except for it's size. The phone is now 5 inches on the Galaxy S4, whereas the Galaxy S3 was 4.3 inches.

What has changed visually however, is the back fo the phone which looks like an improvement on the quality and feel of the product.

At the moment the phone is available in white and black but the rear is changeable to your desired colour.

Samsung have stated that the phone will be available on 3G and 4G and also available on all major networks.

The Samsung Galaxy S4 will be available from the 26th of April 2013 in UK.

They have yet to release official pricing information, so we will have to wait and see.
