The new and upcoming Samsung Galaxy S4 comes with new and exciting features such as a different way to interact with it by allowing you to control the phone with tilting and waving motions. You will still be able to use the improved touch screen, which is more sensitive so you will be able to it while wearing gloves. However, this new feature is sure to grab people’s attention as well. This phone will still be made of a tough polycarbonate, with metallic looking edges. It will be available in black mist and white frost.
The Galaxy S4 will have upgraded hardware as well to go along with its snazzy new features. Looking a lot like its processor, the Galaxy S3, it actually will have a larger, five inch screen and a body which is slightly thinner. The screen will be a lot crisper as well due to its 1080p, Super AMOLED panel. Inside this phone you’ll find 2GB of RAM with a quad-core processor.
Upgraded from an 8-megapixel camera in the S3, the 13-megapixel camera in the S4 is a hardware feature of this phone that will definitely stand out. It will be able to take better and crisper low-light shots, according to Samsung.
You will get a new interface along with features such as a recording mode and a dual shot mode, which will let you combine video and photos from both the front camera and the back camera into one video or shot.
Once you are done taking pictures, you can swipe your finger across the screen as usual to view them, or you can use the new Air Wave feature where you wave your hand over the screen to cycle through your photographs. The software uses a sensor on the front of the Samsung Galaxy S4, and it will also work when browsing the Internet or when accepting a call.
Or, if you don’t want to wave, you can tilt the phone to make it scroll up or down. There is some speculation as to whether or not people will be comfortable using these features on a small device, so only time will tell how popular they become.
