Samsung Electronics’ new flagship smartphone Galaxy S4 will be rolling out in Korea on April 25 following its launch in a number of European countries including the U.K., industry sources said Thursday. With the world’s biggest smartphone maker scheduling its media event on the same day as its roll-out, the new 5-inch Galaxy S4 equipped with octa-core mobile processors will be hitting local shelves in the next three weeks, they said.
The company’s new smartphone was unveiled for the first time in New York on March 14.
The handset released here will feature the upgraded octa-core processor running on the fourth-generation Long Term Evolution network due to specific local demand. The Korean model will be priced in the 900,000 won range. The new processor, designed for smartphones and tablet PCs, supposedly enables its users to carry out heavy-duty multitasking while being more energy efficient.
With the release set for later this month, hopes are rising that the new addition to the Galaxy smartphone lineup will boost sales for the world’s top manufacturer of handsets, TVs and semiconductor chips.
