Samsung introduces the Galaxy S4

Samsung this week unveiled its latest flagship smartphone – the Galaxy S4. Even lighter and thinner than its predecessor, it features a 13-megapixel back camera, and a 5-inch display with 441 ppi (1920×1080) resolution. It will be available in late April, on 327 networks and in 155 countries.

Other new features include:

Eye-tracking: pause video and scroll through pages using eye movements alone

Dual Camera: take simultaneous photos and videos, using both rear and front cameras, and blend them together

Air View: hover with your fingers to preview the content of an email, S-Planner, image gallery or video without having to open it

Air Gesture: change a music track, scroll up and down a web page, or accept a call with a wave of your hand

Story Album: curates content, such as SNS posts, memos, location and weather information, as well as photos and videos, to create a photo album which is personalised around your timeline of special occasions and events

Group Play: means you can enjoy music, photos and games with those around you, without requiring a Wi-Fi AP or cellular signal

S-Health software: empowers your life by keeping you up-to-date with health and wellbeing information through a range of accessories

Samsung WatchON: the Galaxy S4 will transform into an IR remote to control your home entertainment system including TV, set-top box, DVD player and even air conditioner.

Telecoms expert Ernest Doku from uSwitch.com: "The debut of nifty eye motion-sensitive controls allowing users to pause video and scroll through pages with eye movements alone is smart. For commuters crammed in trains – or just those who love a bit of futuristic tech that makes their lives easier – this novel feature will really help the Galaxy S4 to stand out."
