Samsung Galaxy S4 - Hardware features

Senior Advocate

Samsung Galaxy 4 is finally unveiled and I believed you have read a lot of reviews or discussions about the phone.

 

Below are my personal favorite hardware features for Galaxy S4:

 

The screen got larger. From 4.8” to 5”, as compared to S3, yet the size of phone still stayed the same.

 

It got a slimmer body with premium finish. Its back cover is still made from plastic though, available in 2 colors.

It has a Full HD Super AMOLED display to provide an immersive experience. With 1080 x 1920 pixels (441 ppi pixel density), it provides one of the brightest screen, bringing the photos and videos to live.

 

The cameras got upgraded. The rear camera is a 13-megapixel camera, with flash and high shutter mode. The front camera is a 2-megapixel camera which can be used to control the phone as well. Both cameras will be able to capture video at 1080p@30fps.

 

In order to enable the phone to operate seamlessly, the phone is equipped with either Exynos 5 Octa 5410 or Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 chipset. Which processor you will be getting, will depend on where you live in the world. The eight core unique design is actually a Quad-core 1.6 GHz Cortex-A15 & quad-core 1.2 GHz Cortex-A7. The more powerful Cortex-A15 cores will be used to handle the more hungry powered tasked where Cortex-A7 will be used to take care of the simpler task, thus extending the battery life.

 

The phone will comes with a Li-Ion 2600 mAh battery, 500 mAh bigger than the battery used in S3. This will come in handy with all the upgrades of the phone. As usual, the battery is removable, so you can always carry a spare battery around if you are unable to charge your phone.

 

In terms of hardware wise, it is comparable to S3 with a few minor upgrades. In fact, it does look like a S3 with a bigger screen. So what you think of the hardware specifications for S4? Impressed with it?
