Samsung Galaxy S4 UAE Launch

By Khaled Akbik

We were invited to Galaxy S4's sneak peak by Samsung in Dubai a few days ago and had the chance the view firsthand the prowess of Samsung's flagship device.

What's New?

The device comes with an impressive 13MP camera, 1920x1080 (441ppi) resolution, 1.9 quad-core processor, 2GB RAM and it comes in 16GB, 32GB, 64GB versions + microSD card slot.

Samsung has built on its impressive feature set with some new intuitive features that puts its flagship smartphone ahead of the pack with additions like S-Translator, Group Play, Sound and Shot, Story Album, Smart Pause, Air View/Air Gesture, S Health and many more.

We're currently sourcing a device to review at length and go through the multitude of added features on the device as well as trying out the battery life and processor capabilities. For now though we were able to go through some of is main features in the 2-part video below.

Certainly, this is a device that is both powerful and easy on the eye and is a clear contender to the new additions in the very competitive smartphone market of today. What do you think? HTC One or Galaxy S4?

The Samsung Galaxy S4 will be available in the UAE on April 27th, will retail at about AED 2,700 ($733) [price to be confirmed].


  1. Hi, do you know if in UAE it will be standard 4G/LTE launch or it will only come with 3G?

  2. We are told it will release in 3G first, LTE will follow later.
