Since the new Samsung Galaxy S4 is directly competing with Apple’s iPhone 5 (among other handsets), the two smartphones’ prices should be similar. And it looks like they will be, although the S4 is going to be slightly cheaper.
Amazon Germany says the Galaxy S4 (16GB model) will cost €649 when it launches in late April. This while an unlocked iPhone 5 16GB can be bought from Apple for €679 – the same price the iPhone had when it was released in September 2012.
Naturally, the 32GB and 64GB versions of the new Samsung smartphone will add at least €50 each to the final price.
Officially announced last week, the Galaxy S4 is a worthy successor to the Galaxy S II and Galaxy S III – both sold in more than 40 million units around the world. The S4 runs Android 4.2 Jelly Bean, and brings many high-end features, including a 5 inch Super AMOLED Full HD display (1920 x 1080 pixels, 441ppi), air gestures, Smart Scroll, S-Voice, NFC, 13MP rear camera, wireless charging, 2GB of RAM, and an Exynos 5 Octa 5410 processor (or quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 – depending on market).
