GALAXY S 4

After months of speculation, Samsung’s Galaxy S4 is finally among us and with it comes a decent specifications list. Much of what has been announced had been leaked previously, so many of the specifications won’t come as a surprise for many people.

The device is powered by a Samsung Exynos eight-core processor running at 1.8GHz and a mammoth 2GB of RAM. As also expected the screen comes in at 4.99 inches with a 1920×1080 Super AMOLED HD resolution to boot.

Compared to the Samsung Galaxy S3, the S4 is larger and thinner than the older device, but comes in at five grams heavier at 138g.

As well as coming in white and blue editions, the S IV will launch with Android 4.2 pre-installed and include a 2,600 mAh battery that will be aided further by the eight-core processor.

The phone will be available from 26th April.
