Say Hello to the Samsung Galaxy S4
After some teases, a tap dance, and even a few leaks, Samsung finally took the wraps off its latest smartphone, the Samsung Galaxy S4. The phone, which is a successor to the hugely popular Galaxy S3, touts some new hardware and a host of additional features that will certainly make S3 users green with envy.
At an event in New York last night, Samsung's JK Shin, head of Mobile Communications showed off the new handset. The phone sports a 5-inch display and new features such as dual cameras, eyeball tracking, health tracking, and built-in translation utilities. The phone will be available in 'white mist' and 'black frost' colors, though no word yet on what the retail price will be. Samsung also announced new accessories such as a redesigned cover, gamepad, wireless charging pad, as well as a specially designed weighing scale and heartrate monitor band.
