First up is an overview video, which briefly explains how you can use some of the cool new features of the Galaxy S4, including a look at the S Translator, Air View/ Air Gesture, Dual Camera and Sound & Shot options.
Looks great huh? Let us oblige you with some other key insights…
Have you ever traveled to a foreign country and had difficulty communicating or translating? This can be even more challenging in countries that use unfamiliar alphabets. The Galaxy S4 features an
‘S Translator’ with the goal of breaking down all communication barriers. How you may ask? Well, it provides instant translation, using text or voice translation in applications including email, text messages and ChatOn. The information translation is possible for both speech to text and text to speech communication and ensures that you can rely on getting the correct information needed while abroad.
Also finding and using the S Translator is super easy – just click on “applications” and then you’ll see the S Translator icon. Then you can choose the language you want. The languages of Korean, Chinese, Japanese and English can be translated to each other; while German, French, Italian, Portuguese, and Spanish can be translated to English. Just speak the phrase you want to translate and the Galaxy S4 will automatically translate what you said into the specifid foreign language and can even read aloud the translated phrase!
Air View / Air Gesture
You might be familiar with the ‘Air View’ if you’ve used previous versions of the Galaxy smartphone and S Pen before. Now, you can make use of the Air View feature without the S Pen. Air View lets you hover over features with your finger to preview the content of an email, S Planner, image gallery or video without having to open it. You can even see a magnified view on the internet browser, or a saved phone number.
Also with ‘Air Gesture’ you can now use the ‘Air View’ more easily. With a simple wave of your hand, you can change a music track, scroll up and down on a web page, or even accept a call with just a wave of your hand! The device is even ‘glove friendly’ and will respond to your hand gestures no matter what, perfect for staying connected even in these chilly winter days.
Looking over the Galaxy S4 specification, you might already know that it has a nifty 2 mega pixel camera in front and a 13 mega pixel camera in the back. The ‘Dual Camera’ feature allows simultaneous use of both front and rear cameras. So what can you do with the Dual Cameras? How about you can choose from a variety of frame affects which blend the two pictures naturally. Follow the directions on the video to see how you can use this with the Galaxy S4.
Also you can select up to 8 different ways to combine the two photos taken by the front and rear cameras. You can simultaneously make or receive a video call while showing people what you are looking at during the live call!
Sound & Shot
The ‘Sound & Shot’ feature uniquely stores sound and voice together as the picture is taken so that these special moments can be captured in their truest forms, exactly as they happened. So not only can you take still pictures, but you can also attach rich audio experiences to them which get automatically stored in your photo albums. This allows you to capture and combine photos, texts and sounds in really creative ways.
So are you impressed by all these new features of the Galaxy S4?
