Samsung Galaxy S4 Unpacked

On the evening of March 14th, Samsung announced the Galaxy S4 in New York City. Many of the new features were showcased, like:
  • Smart Pause, which will pause video you are watching if you get distracted and look away.
  • Dual Camera, allows you to insert yourself in the picture/video you are taking.
  • S Translator, supports 9 languages in text and voice. 
  • Knox, the enterprise security feature that allows you to separate personal from business content/apps.
  • Air View/Gesture, that allows you to interact with the phone without touching the screen, and instead, waving your hand in front of it or hovering your finger over it.
