All new Samsung Galaxy S4 - specifications & price.

The 4th generation Galaxy S is here and the market will again be spoilt for choice.

For official price in Malaysia, check out the article here.

U ready 4 the next galaxy?


The Galaxy S4 looks very similar in design to its predecessor, the Galaxy S3. With a 5" screen, matching the size of the Sony Xperia Z, it's big. But the traditional look remains with rounded corners, a physical home button and a removable rear cover.

The S4 size and design compared with its predecessors


It's really not fair to compare the all new Galaxy S4 with the iPhone 5 isn't it, but which new offering can you bring in from Apple's stable to pit against it?

Specifications: Samsung Galaxy S4 vs Apple iPhone 5


The Guardian argued that with the introduction of the S4 will pave the way for the Galaxy S phones to eclipse the iPhone. Make your own judgement but here is the sales of both phones since 2010:

Samsung Galaxy S4 Price

In the United States, media and journalists believe the S4 will be priced at $199 + contract, similar to the S3 when it was launched last year.

In the United Kingdom, it is expected to set you back £499, SIM-free (approx. RM2,348).

For Malaysian market, I can bet my money on a RM2,199 price tag (16GB variant). It has and will always be such priced.
