Samsung Electronics, would in May release the fourth generation of its flagship Galaxy S series, the Samsung Galaxy S4, in Nigeria. The device will be introduced to the Nigerian market in Lagos on May 10, 2013.
However, the company said it has already started receiving pre-orders for the 5-inch, full HD display flagship device.
The beauty of the Samsung Galaxy S4 lies in its highly crafted design, encompassing a larger screen size, battery and minimized bezel, all housed in a light and slim shape. A prototype of the device shows its slimmer and looks stronger than its predecessor, the Galaxy S3. It seems to have less to hold in comparison with S3 but yet has more to see.
No wonder Managing Director of Samsung Electronics West Africa, Mr. Brovo Kim described the device as a product of Samsung’s commitment to redefining the way people live towards maximizing their fulfilment of life”.
The Galaxy S4 runs on Google’s latest Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean operating system and features 2GB of RAM. The most notable improvement in the Galaxy S4 lies in its camera, which now features various modes to allow users to capture photos from sporting events or in low-light conditions with just one touch. Its dual-shot function will allow users to take pictures and videos with both the 13-megapixel rear camera and front-facing 2-megapixel camera at the same time and combine the input from both cameras into one final product.
Other features of the device include ‘Group Play’, which lets users share music, photos, documents and games with those around them without requiring Wi-Fi or cellular signal; ‘Smart Pause’ which enables users control the screen by where they look and the Smart Scroll’ feature, which lets users scroll through emails without touching the screen.
