Samsung Galaxy S4

The fourth generation release of Samsung's popular Galaxy smartphone. The Samsung Galaxy S4 was announced in March 2013, with public availability expected in late April. Pricing for the Galaxy S4 will start at close to $600.

The Samsung Galaxy S4 runs Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean mobile operating system in a profile that is slimmer and lighter than the previous Samsung Galaxy 3 III. One of the Galaxy S4's many enhancements over previous generations of the Galaxy smartphone is the use of Gorilla Glass 3 for superior screen protection of a 5-inch, 1080p Super AMOLED panel that offers 441 pixels-per-inch (ppi) density. 

The Samsung Galaxy S 4 is powered by a quad-core 1.9 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 processor (with an 8-core Exynos 5 processor available as an option) with 2GB of RAM, and provides 4G LTE support as well as NFC (near-field communication), Bluetooth 4.0 and 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac support.
