DUBAI: Samsung Electronics late on Monday evening unveiled its fourth generation Galaxy S4 in the UAE.
Equipped with 13MP rear camera, the new smartphone brings the most innovative features that no other smartphone manufacturer around the world has introduced so far.
Speaking to The Gulf Today during the launch, Hayssam Yassine, Head of Telecommunications Group at Samsung Gulf, defined extra features of newly-launched smartphone. He said, the phone can be paired with Samsung Smart TV that the company launched last year and has many similar built-in applications.
He added, while using the smartphone as a means of communication like interpereter, the conversation can be recorded and saved in the phone memory.
He said, it can also be used as hotspot and can be paired with other wifi-enabled devices to use internet.
With ten built-in languages, the S4 functions as an interpereter in case the user is in a country where communication is a problem while not knowing the local language, Hayssam added.
In response to a question about increasing trend of online shopping, Hayssam said, “Samsung is also in talks with online retailers to offer extra benefits to online buyers by adding some value-added services,” Hayssam concluded.
The S4 boasts a ‘Dual Camera’ function that allows simultaneous use of both front and rear cameras. At the same time, the ‘Dual Video Call’ function enables the user to make and receive a video call with friends and family while showing what the user is looking at during the call.
The camera functionality extends beyond dual camera, as the device is also equipped with 12 outstanding shooting modes including ‘Drama Shot’, which allows the user to see all the action in one continuous time-lapse, and ‘Sound & Shot’, which uniquely stores sound and voice together as the picture is taken so those special moments are captured in the truest form imaginable, exactly as they happened. It also takes snapshots with a few seconds shoot-time voice input and each time the picture is opened the voice clip turns on.
