Samsung has posted the first Galaxy S4 promo video on YouTube. As usual the clips goes through the phone’s design, software and hardware perks, and does so with a catchy background music and a patterned background to match the pattern of the smartphone itself.
We get to see Air View, which lets you hover a finger over the screen and get a thumbnail preview pop up. Smart Pause, which can monitor if your eyes move away from the screen and pause a video for you. See the S4 operated with gloves and much more.
It takes some guts to stand up to the big guy and call his work a flop. And bravery is usually to be admired. But it takes a bit more than bravery to classify the next big thing from the world’s leading smartphone manufacturer (your competitor) as #TheNextBigFlop, unless you are alright with people taking your comment for an arrogant sign of a deeply rooted inferiority complex.
Whatever the reason, HTC, or rather the PR people behind HTC Twitter account did just that by calling today’s Galaxy S4 announcement #TheNextBigFlop.
We got the chance to snap a few shots with the Samsung Galaxy S4 camera at the smartphone’s announcement event in New York and are rushing to share them with you guys.
To get the formalities out of the way the Galaxy S4 has a new 13 MP snapper on the back complete with a single LED flash. The camera can produce stills of 4128 x 3096 resolution. There’s autofocus, simultaneous video and image recording, image stabilization among other things.
The Galaxy S 4 is now official, and Samsung has set its eyes on the Android throne once again, ambitiously aiming to beat the records set by the Galaxy S III.
The competition for Samsung this year is a lot tougher than it was in 2012, though. Early in the year, Sony unveiled the breathtaking Xperia Z and set up the rules of the 5″ smartphone game. Then came in HTC with the really sllek One, boasting an amazing display and an interesting camera offering. How will the Galaxy S4 stack up?
The Galaxy S4 has no shortage of cool new features, but undoubtedly one of the most interesting among them is the updated version of the S Health app the company launched last year.
In its latest version, S Health will be taking advantage of the specialized sensors found in the Galaxy S4, namely the built-in pedometer, temperature and humidity sensors.
With the Samsung Galaxy S 4 aiming to take the throne on which the Galaxy S III once sit, every owner of the former flagship must wonder if the upgrade is worth it.
After all, the Galaxy S 4 looks awfully similar to its predecessor, so is there more to Samsung’s latest flagship than meets the eye?
The Samsung Galaxy S 4 curtains are now officially open and this means its time to see the company’s 2013 flagship from up close.
Naturally, our cameras are aimed directly at the Galaxy S 4 and all of its 5″ Super AMOLED HD glory. We urge you to go past the break and take a look at all our Galaxy S 4 live photos gathered in one place for your convenience.
Now the smartphone has even been given the teardown treatment. With the needed tools on tap and a camera with which to capture every single body part in detail it168 members walked us through the entire process.
The Chinese are at it again. The new Galaxy S4 has once again leaked from Chinese site mobile.it168.com, this time in the form of camera samples.
The upcoming Samsung flagship, which is set to be officially announced mere hours from now, has its camera samples compared to the likes of the iPhone 5 and Sony Xperia Z.
By now it’s all but official that the Samsung Galaxy S4 is powered by Samsung’s Exynos 5 Octa chipset, featuring 4 Cortex-A15 cores to do the heavy lifting and 4 Cortex-A7 cores, which kick in for less demanding tasks and save power. Thankfully, we were also able to get an idea of its performance thanks to the benchmark tests in the early review that just leaked.
Exynos 5410 Octa employs ARM’s big.LITTLE architecture with its Cortex-A15 CPU quartet clocked at 1.8GHz and theCortex-A7 cores running at 1.2GHz. It certainly looks like a combo ready to be a benchmark champion, but it turns out that its software is unable to keep up with it just yet.
Rovio, the folks behind the popular Angry Birds franchise, has released a new game based on the upcoming Dreamworks animated movie The Croods.
The game lets you trap, hunt, and tame various fictional creatures on both iOS and Android mobile devices.
Destined to hit the Optimus G Pro, Smart Video works pretty much the same way as the Smart pause feature we saw in thoseGalaxy S IV leaks – videos get automatically paused when you’re not looking at the screen.
Samsung has installed multiple Galaxy S4 billboards all over Times Square in New York, teasing tonight’s announcement. It’s not a big surprise that the competition would try to steal some of the spotlights. It is LG in this case, advertizing on the electronic billboard positioned right above Samsung’s regular vinyl one.
And LG has created an almost exact copy of Samsung’s S4 billboard, but only to advertize their flagship Optimus G. Of course, they are not just copying the style of Samsung’s ads, you have got to appreciate the humor involved in their move, too.
