Is Samsung’s Galaxy S4 enough to compete with the HTC ONE?

image

Samsung launched the long awaited Galaxy S4 last night in New York City by showing the device in real world situations via some terrible acting in its hour long play…. I mean presentation.
They showed off the mass of new features included in the Galaxy S4 including Air view, Smart Pause, Smart Scroll & much much more. Check out Samsung’s video at the bottom of the page for more.
The Galaxy S4 stays with the same sleek & stylish design as the Galaxy S3 & Galaxy Note 2, with it polycarbonate build. This time they have dropped the hyper-glaze finish & went with a nice textured look that looks a little like Alligator skin. They have also made the edges a little less curved but it still feels great in the hand.

The Galaxy S 4 features a 5-inch full HD Super AMOLED display, 13MP rear camera, 2MP front camera and Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean. As for what’s powering the Galaxy S4 there will be two versions of processors, The unlocked international version will pack a 1.6GHz octa-core Exynos 5 processor and the North American or Carrier version will get an equally fast 1.9GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 quad-core processor. The CPU with be accompanied by PowerVR SGX544MP and Adreno 320 GPU respectively. Both versions have 2gb of RAM as well.
The Galaxy S4 will be available from the big 3 & from Koodo at the end of April. It’s expected to be selling for around $700 so start saving your penny’s because April’s just around the corner.

Well what do you think, is it enough to compete with the HTC ONE? Will you be getting one?

Galaxy S4 gets a confirmed launch date & place

image

*UPDATE* Samsung just posted this pic on their Facebook page above completely confirming the Release of the Galaxy S4 at an unpacked event in NY & that it will be streamed through* YouTube.

The follow up to the widely popular Galaxy S3 from Samsung has been rumored to be launching March 14 in NY. Until now it was just that a rumour, but now Samsung’s Mobile division Chief JK Shin HAS basically made it official with this announcement.

“We introduced the Galaxy S III in London last year, this time we changed the Venue as we were bombarded with requests from US mobile carriers to unveil the Galaxy S IV in the country.”

Many love what HTC has brought to the market with the HTC ONE but have said they will wait to see what Samsung brings to the table with the Galaxy S4. Well you won’t have to wait long to make that decision now so you should start saving your pennies.
The rumored specs of the Galaxy S4 are all over the place & have even included Samsung ditching their own processor for a Qualcomm one & dropping the Amoled displays. We’ll find out on the 14th in NY just where the true specs fall but if your like me your hoping they include a Exynos processor & Full HD Amoled display. Also I really hope they haven’t went away from the very comfortable rounded edges they had on the S3 & Note 2.

What are you hoping to see in the specs of the Galaxy S4?
