The S4 picks up right where last year’s Galaxy S III left off. As far as looks go, the S4 looks like a larger version of its predecessor. It’s thin, it’s light, and it’s made of plastic. The sloped edges and anti-iPhone styling are all in place. The S III had a 4.8-inch, 720p, Super HD AMOLED display covered in Corning’s scratch-resistant Gorilla Glass 2. The S4 has a 5-inch, 1080p Super HD AMOLED display covered in Gorilla Glass 3. The S III was 0.34-inches thick, the S4 is 0.31-inches thick. The S III weighed 4.7-ounces, the S4 weighs 4.6-ounces.
While the S III had an 8-megapixel rear camera, and a 1.9-megapixel front camera, the S4 has a 13-megapixel rear camera and a 2-megapixel front camera. TouchWiz — Samsung’s alterations to Google’s Android operating system — looks to be largely the same between the S III and S4. The S4 is basically more, more, more of everything — specs and features.
The Samsung Galaxy S4 will hit retail stores on the second quarter of 2013, Samsung is obviously looking to build on the burgeoning brand known as the “iPhone Killer.”
