Samsung Electronics, has rolled out its highly anticipated Galaxy S4 smartphone in Nigeria, adding a new Galaxy device to its range of products in this category. The device, which the company describes as a life companion, was unveiled to the Nigerian public at an elaborate, fashion-themed event in Lagos on Friday, May 10.
The world’s first smartphone to boast an AMOLED display with full HD resolution, the Galaxy S4 runs on Google’s latest Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean operating system and boasts 2GB of RAM. A most notable improvement lies in its camera, which now sports various modes to allow users to capture photos from sporting events or in low-light conditions with just one touch. Its dual-shot function allows 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.
The Galaxy S4 features 4G connectivity, a brighter 5-inch screen, an infra-red light that can be used to control home entertainment devices and a host of sensors to track temperature, humidity and even its users’ footsteps. Health accessories, including an internet-connected scale and heart rate monitor also feature on the device.
The smartphone is the first to allow users scroll through e-mails, turn web pages and view documents, all without having to touch the screen. In addition, its “smart pause” feature enables users pause videos just by looking away from the phone’s screen.
The phone has an in-built translator, which can translate voice or text, and allows users to activate commands via voice control when driving. It automatically creates “story albums” of photos and videos, which can be synchronised with other devices, while its “group play” function lets users enjoy music, photos and games with family and friends.
