Bangalore, April 27, 2013 – The much hyped Samsung Galaxy S4 is here. It was launched with a littler help from Bollywood personalities, Genelia D’Souza and Vidyut Jamwal at the company’s premium Mobile Store at the UB City Mall. The GALAXY S4 has the world’s first Full HD Super AMOLED display with a 5-inch large screen. Equipped with a 13 megapixel rear camera, the S4’s ‘Dual Shot’ allows simultaneous picture-taking of both front and rear cameras. Users can choose from a variety of frame effects which blend the two pictures naturally as well as outstanding shooting modes. ‘Drama Shot’ enables users to see all the action in one continuous time-lapse image. ‘Sound & Shot’ stores sound and voice in unison as the picture is taken so those special moments are captured in the truest form imaginable. While‘Animated Photo’ allows the user to take a series of shots, and pick one part of the photo to move while the others stay still.
‘Group Play’ enables users to enjoy music, photos, documents and games with those around them without requiring a Wi-Fi AP or cellular signal. Users can connect directly with others to share, play and co-create content and entertainment instantly. With ‘Share Music’ they can have the same song playing on multiple phones in sync to create the best party atmosphere.
The phone is smart enough to detect your face, voice and motions to enable screen control with no need for finger touch activation. ‘Air Gesture’ allows users to, for example, change the music track they are listening to with a wave of their hand. ‘Air View’ will preview photos and emails by hovering over the screen with your finger.‘Samsung Smart Pause’ enables you to control the screen by where you look. When you are watching a video, the video pauses when you look away then it starts right up again when you are back.
One of the unique features of Samsung Galaxy S4 is the WatchON that can transform the GALAXY S4 into a universal remote control.
