AT&T has quietly listed the Samsung Galaxy S IV for April 30th on its sales website following its initial announcement last month.
While the carrier had previously confirmed plans to carry the phone, it has not officially issued a press release confirming pricing and release details. The carrier has listed the 16GB version for $199.99 after new 2 year agreement or $639.99 with no agreement.
The phone features a 5-inch AMOLED display at 1080p resolution with a pixel density of 440 ppi, Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean with Samsung’s Touch Wiz UI, quad-core 1.9GHz 800 series Snapdragon S4 with 2GB of RAM, a 13-megapixel main camera that shoots 1080p HD video and a 2-megapixel user-facing camera. The device will be sold in 16GB/32GB versions on AT&T and other carriers while it also supports microSD cards up to 64GB.
It also includes a litany of radios, including 802.11a/b/c/g/n Wi-Fi, NFC, IrDa standard infrared port for home appliances, Bluetooth, and GPS along with a digital compass, accelerometer, and a barometer to detect humidity and ambient air pressure along with support for external sensors used mainly in healthcare for vital sign monitoring and ties into Samsung’s new initiative for the Galaxy S4.
Another key addition to the S4 is the new series of contactless display gestures Samsung calls Air Gestures, which can be used to change audio tracks, advance photos, or switch between browser tabs by waving a hand across the front of the S4.
The S4 also includes the Air View features found on the Note II, but now works without an S Pen stylus, which previously required the magnetized tip to detect movement. Air View now lets S4 owners see previews of alerts by simply hovering a finger over the display when the alert is received.
