The Next Big Thing is Here; Samsung Galaxy S4 Sports Futuristic Features

March 15, 2013, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

Samsung just rolled out its latest flagship phone, the Galaxy S4. The much hyped phone does have some futuristic features and it looks like the phone is going to top sales chart if the pricing is done right.

Bigger screen aside, the Galaxy S4 will be available in white and black and it weighs in at 130g making it slightly lighter than the S3 (133g). At 7.9mm thick it’s significantly slimmer than the Galaxy S3 also.

Jumping from a 4.8-inch display to an almost Note-like 5-inch Full HD Super AMOLED display, the S4 promises 441 ppi which should mean a massive jump in terms of clarity for what is already one of the brightest and most vibrant smartphone displays in the market.


There are also features like the new Adapt sound and Adapt display that will aid in changing the screen and sound settings to match whether you are watching a video or reading an article on the web.

Sporting a new 13-megapixel rear-facing camera with full HD 1080p video recording capabilities, there is also a 2 megapixel front shooter for all the video calling needs. Adopting some of the features introduced with the Samsung Galaxy camera including the interface, there is now a dual shot mode which essentially takes two separate photos which can then be merged.

Other notable new camera features include Eraser Shot which can delete those people who try to ruin pictures by moving in the background, Drama Shot that lets you turn Burst photos into one picture and Sound Shot to record nine seconds of audio and combine with a photo.

On the filming front, there’s dual recording to shoot two video simultaneously a new Cinema Photo mode which lets you select which video shots to stay dynamic and still which you can then turn into your very own ready-made moving image.

There is also the SmartPause, which essentially halts any video you are watching when you look away from the screen and Smart Scroll which lets you browse through content by tilting the device.

Sharing is big theme for the S4 integrating S Translator to email Chat-On and messaging making it easier to communicate with your international buddies by converting speech to text.

On top of that you can now do dual and 3-way video calls, share content on your screen Note-style and annotation that you’ve made to documents. The Galaxy S4 launch was pretty impressive and Samsung did deliver what it promised.
