Samsung ships Galaxy S4 smartphone to New Zealanders first
Posted on 15-Apr-2013 12:38 | Tags Filed under: News



Samsung New Zealand today announced the highly-anticipated Samsung GALAXY S4 smartphone will be available to New Zealand consumers from 10:00am on April 27, 2013.

Due to its geographical location New Zealand consumers will be the first in the world to purchase the device. Other countries throughout the world will also start selling the device from 10am their local time on April 27.

At launch the smartphone will be sold through selected retailers nationwide including Vodafone, Telecom and 2degrees** and will come in two colours – Black Mist and White Frost.

Samsung New Zealand has also confirmed that only the 4G-capable 1.9 GHz Quad-Core Processor version of the device will be available locally. The device will also feature Navigon – a premium navigation service from GPS technology company Garmin.

Unveiled on March 15 (NZST) at the Samsung Unpacked event in New York, the Samsung GALAXY S4 is set to redefine the smartphone experience. The device features the world’s first Full HD Super AMOLED display and 5-inch large screen for stunning viewing quality and a host of new applications including S-Translator, Smart Scroll and Smart Pause.

The device is also equipped with a 13 megapixel rear camera and Dual Shot for simultaneous use of both front and rear cameras. It includes 12 different shooting modes for capturing the perfect shot.

Samsung New Zealand Sales Director Jon Barrell says the company is expecting the GALAXY S4 to be as popular, if not more so, than its record-breaking predecessor – the GALAXY SIII.

“The GALAXY S4 takes the smartphone experience to the next level. From the 13 megapixel camera to its unmatched processing power and brilliant screen quality - it’s an impressive device and we’re confident Kiwis are going to love it. Users can look forward to a number of standout features of the GALAXY S4."
