Galaxy S4 smartphone to go on sale here in May

 

The South Korean company's stores here will stock the device, which was unveiled in New York. The three major telcos - SingTel, StarHub and M1 - are also in talks to sell it.
The phone will be given a staggered launch worldwide, with some countries getting it in April. Samsung Asia CEO and president Gregory Lee said: "We haven't decided on pricing. But it's a premium product so it will be at a premium price."
Experts expect the cost bracket will be similar to the Samsung Galaxy S III and Samsung Galaxy Note II - which both sold for $998 and attracted queues outside stores at their sales launches here last year.
At Friday's 7am unveiling - Singapore time - the company made no mention of Google's mobile operating system, which it has used since launching its first Android phone in 2009.
Instead, the world's largest manufacturer of Android smartphones, which has sold more than 100 million units of its three Samsung Galaxy S devices, focused on the new software features of its latest device. They include gesture controls, enhanced camera functions and lifestyle elements.
