If you are in the anti-Apple camp, or just think the Android OS and the Samsung Range is more suited for you, then you must know that the Samsung Galaxy S4 will be released next week, 27th April 2013.
The Samsung Galaxy S4 brings a huge Full HD screen, an improved camera and faster innards, and fits it all in a chassis the same size as the Galaxy S3.
However, many will struggle to tell the difference between the S4 and its predecessor, as the polycarbonate chassis is still in use; although the metallic banding around the side, while still plastic, is much sturdier and feels more premium.
We’ve already seen a lot of the Samsung Galaxy S4 features, as it’s been snapped multiple times in leaks – some more accurate than others, it has to be said – and the specs mooted have turned out to be pretty bang on.
Apparently, the Samsung Galaxy S4 will sport a Broadcom BCM4335 chip that incorporates the 802.11ac WiFi capacity along with Bluetooth 4.0 and an FM radio.
Newer processors, along with increased speed, focus on improving efficiency between cores. This should mean that the Samsung Galaxy S4 can boast more processes and a longer battery life than we’ve previously seen in a handheld. Other specs include a 13MP rear-facing camera and, of course, the aforementioned 1080p screen.
In terms of browsing speed, a new rumour suggests the Samsung Galaxy S4 will arrive with 802.11ac WiFi – also known as 5G WiFi. This new WiFi technology is aimed at providing wireless speeds equatable with a standard wired connection.
As well as more power and speed, it is also thought to offer longer-lasting battery life
There’s a lot riding on NFC this year – what’s it going to do in terms of making the beepy technology worth using in the day to day lives of many?
Well, with a tie-in with Visa looks like you’ll be able to use your phone to pay for bits and pieces more easily by including the PayWave app within the Galaxy S4, meaning you won’t have to get validation from thenetworks for the payment mechanism.
