Today at its Galaxy S event in New York, Samsung has officially announced the much-teased Galaxy S IV, featuring 4G LTE support, a 5″ 441ppi screen, a 7.9mm-thick body and a 13mp camera. The device weighs in at 130 grams and includes new infrared gesture, temperature and humidity sensors.
According to Samsung’s JK Shin, the device will feature the rumored Samsung Smart Scroll. Samsung is calling the device a “life companion.”
Back in January, the company announced that Galaxy S shipments had topped 100 million, with the Galaxy S3 alone contributing 41 million units.
In promoting this event, Samsung said that attendees will be “the first in the world to experience” the new phone, hinting that the smartphone will be at least viewable, or perhaps available as demo units immediately afterwards.
