We brought you the rumours of the new handset, and at a New York launch event last night the much-anticipated Samsung Galaxy S4 was revealed.
As expected, the Samsung Galaxy S4 is slimmer and has a larger screen than its predecessor, the Galaxy S3. The Full HD Super AMOLED ultra-sensitive touchscreen measures 5 inches diagonally, with a 1080 x 1920 pixel display, matching the new HTC One and Sony Xperia Z smartphones. With a choice of inbuilt memory ranging from 16GB to 64GB.
Where the Samsung Galaxy S4 truly shines, however, is in its processing capabilities. Running the latest version of Android software; Jelly Bean 4.2.2, accompanied by 2GB of RAM and an quad-core processor, the S4 is arguably one of the most powerful phone on the market. For a phone to work effectively as a business handset, it needs to be fast, reliable, and highly capable of multi-tasking – the S4 certainly meets these requirements.
Another advantage of choosing Samsung phones for your business handsets is that they also integrate fully with Mobile Device Management (MDM) technology, such as MobiControl from SOTI. By effectively integrating MDM technology into your business communications you are able to both optimise handsets to your company requirements, lock down and remotely wipe handsets in the event of them being lost or stolen, as well as enhance staff productivity by restricting web and application access.
The S4 incorporates other high tech features, including eye and movement tracking technology that will pause video if you look away during playback, keep the handset backlit whilst you are looking at it, and automatically scrolls so you can continue reading emails or web pages, all without touching the screen. By simply hovering over the screen, the user is also able to preview contacts, emails, photos and video – allowing you to find the information that you need even faster.
If you travel frequently, the Galaxy S4 could be for you, as it comes complete with impressive translation technology. You are able to translate both voice and text into an array of different languages, enabling you to communicate effectively, wherever you are. Hands-free capability ensures you can remain in complete control of your voice calls, text and navigation whilst driving safely and legally.
As we reported, the handset has a 13-megapixel rear camera, as well as a 2MP front camera. New technology allows for both cameras to be used at once, integrating the photographer into the photo they are taking. This also allows for dual-screen video calling, enabling whoever you are calling to see both you and your view.
The release date is set at the 26th April, when the handset will be available in ‘White Frost’ or ‘Black Mist’.
