Full disclosure on Samsung Galaxy S4 will be unveiled later today, but bits and pieces of the full release have been getting out since the announcement of Samsung Galaxy S4. This time a YouTube user posted a video claiming it be of the device itself.
Four videos showing the new features of Samsung Galaxy S4 has been uploaded by YouTube user iStevenCom. The videos reveal the new device’s ability to react to a user’s inputs without actually touching the screen. Along with this it shows that the device will automatically pause a video being watched by a person if they are looking elsewhere. Other videos reflect the Samsung’s efforts on improving the connection between its Android installation and hardware by showing the handset’s new unlock screen and Internet browsing.
The features shown by the videos reveal more or less the same points as claimed by rumors earlier. Rumors surrounding the Samsung Galaxy S4 included major software upgrades, and touch-free functionality and SmartPause.
Though the videos don’t reveal any hardware updates, the device is expected to be equipped with a variety of new features including a slightly larger display and faster processor.
Earlier, some images of the Samsung Galaxy S4 have been revealed on the web. The images have been posted on a Chinese site Mobile.it168.com showing a handset similar to the one shown in images and videos earlier this week. The description along with the images indicate an eight-core chip and a 4.99-inch screen, similar to the earlier rumors, also it shows a smartphone that measures 7.7 millimeters thick and weighs in at 138 grams. However, one unique point was that the image also featured the text “Galaxy S4.”
Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd. (LON:BC94) (KRX:005930) will launch the device at the Radio City music hall in New York, bringing the fight to Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL)’s home turf. No matter what, it’s going to be an intense battle aired by rumors that the Korean firm has ordered a production run of 100m handsets and research firm Strategy Analytics predicting the S4 will ship 60m units by Christmas.
If rumors are to be believed Samsung Galaxy S4 will be superior to iPhone in areas such as photography and processing power but could lag on the quality of materials and the selection of apps.
All the speculation and hoopla surrounding the much awaited device will be unraveled later today at 3 p.m. PT, so until then speculate.
