The S4 is also light (130g) and slim (7.9mm), with a 5-inch Full HD Super AMOLED display that has 441ppi. The Samsung Galaxy S4 is available in two colours - Black Mist and White Frost.
The real beauty of the phone is its highly crafted design, encompassing a large screen size and battery, and a minimised bezel, all housed in a light (130g) and slim (7.9mm) shape. Slimmer than its predecessors, there's less to hold yet more to see. Available in two colours - Black Mist and White Frost - at launch, a variety of additional colour options will be available later this year.
Simon Stanford, Vice President of IM division, Samsung Electronics UK & Ireland said: "At Samsung, we are restless about innovation, and are constantly striving to create unique experiences for our customers that will transform their lives. The Galaxy S 4 does just that. We have listened to what consumers around the world want and taken the intuitive technology from the Galaxy S III a step further. Combining this with superior hardware has led us to develop the Galaxy S 4, the ultimate smartphone inspired by our customers."
