Video: We Check Out The Samsung Galaxy S4’s New Software Tricks

Last night, we got our hands on the Samsung Galaxy S4 smartphone, which hits Aussie stores on April 27. The new phone is certainly impressive, but is it a worthwhile upgrade if you already own a Galaxy S III? Check out the following video to see some of the new features up its sleeve.

This Saturday, Samsung’s flagship Android smartphone, the Galaxy S4, will finally be available to purchase. Boasting a five-inch 1080p super AMOLED display with a pixel density of 441ppi, a 1.9GHz quad-core Snapdragon CPU, 2GB of DDR3 RAM, LTE 4G functionality and a 13-megapixel camera, it comfortably trumps its predecessor in almost every area that matters. However, the main improvements are actually in the software.

The below video demonstrates a handful of the S4’s new bag of tricks, including facial control, group play and air gesture. (We also tried to get the hotly-touted S Translate tool to work, but it unfortunately couldn’t cope in the noisy environment.)

For a more thorough overview of the new phone, check out our initial launch analysis.
