Samsung Galaxy S4 with Exynos 5 Octa processor launching in Korea tomorrow
Although it’s been slightly delayed in the US and the UK, the Samsung Galaxy S4 will be available starting tomorrow (April 26) in South Korea. So that’s the first country to actually get the new flagship smartphone – and it makes perfect sense, since it’s Samsung’s home country.
All three South Korean carriers will sell the new Galaxy (SK Telekom, KT, LG U+), and all are getting the LTE version with Exynos 5 Octa 5410 processor.
The S4 will be gradually released around the world starting April 27 – despite the fact that, according to Samsung’s head of sales and marketing, “demand is far stronger than we had expected and as a result we are having difficulties in fully meeting initial supply requests.” The handset runs Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean, and it’s the first from Samsung to sport a Full HD display (5 inches).
Samsung hopes to sell 10 million Galaxy S4s in the first month of availability, and could end up shipping 30 million units before July.
A Galaxy S4 Mini should be released in the coming months – this will obviously be smaller and cheaper than the regular S4. Furthermore, a waterproof and dustproof version of the S4 might be in the works, too (but that remains to be confirmed).
