Lovers of giant phones rejoiced Thursday night as Samsung, the world’s largest maker of smartphones, released a new flagship device.
The Galaxy S4 has a huge 5-inch, 1080p screen but is packed into a frame smaller than the S3. Experts say the S4 isn’t perfect, but may make Apple tremble.
Samsung, a South Korean company, announced the S4 with an orchestra in the Big Apple.
That was a bold move considering Samsung still owes the other big Apple $600 million for patent infringement. You can hire a lot of Chinese workers for that kind of coin.
Industry experts say the S4 may make history.
“I believe the Samsung Galaxy S4 could be an important milestone for the Korean company, as it could be the first smartphone to outsell an iPhone,” said Francisco Jeronimo in The Daily Mail.
That will be true globally, but I think the iPhone will continue to outsell the top Android in the U.S. for the near future.
Interesting S4 features include:
The S4 will be available April 26 at all the major carriers. No price was announced Thursday, but expect it to set you back $200 with a two-year contract.
