The Samsung Galaxy S4 Is The Next Big Thing [PHOTOS + VIDEO]

Samsung officially unveiled the Galaxy S4 at Radio City Music Hall in New York City today. The device is packed with many new features and impressive hardware — very similar to what had been leaked over the past few weeks leading up to the event.

The phone weighs in at 130g, just 3g lighter than the Galaxy S3. It is 136.6mm tall, 69.8mm wide and 7.9 mm thick and has a 5-inch Super AMOLED display. This makes the screen of the Galaxy S4 slightly larger than the S3, but maintains almost the same dimensional specs as the S3, making the S4 similar to handle as the S3.

The Galaxy S4 comes packed with a 1.9GHz quad-core processor or a 1.6GHz octa-core processor (will vary by market), have a 13-megapixel rear facing camera and a 2-megapixel front facing camera. It will support 4G LTE out of the box. Samsung’s new flagship has a 2600 mAh battery, and will ship with Android 4.2.2 Jellybean.

It includes features such as Smart Scroll, which allows you scroll just by looking at the phone; Group Play which allows you to play the same song on multiple devices at the same time; S Translator, which is a translation feature similar to Google Translate and many more! Check out photos and a hands-on video below.
