First look at the Samsung Galaxy S4

Samsung debuted its latest smartphone during an event in New York on Thursday and CityNews technology specialist Mike Yawney was there.

The Galaxy S4 sports a five-inch screen with a high resolution 1920×1080 pixel display, and, at 130 grams, the device is lighter than many smaller Android phones.

Owners can choose between 16, 32, or 64 gigabytes of storage.

There are other features: the phone can stop and start videos depending on whether someone is looking at the screen, flip between songs and photos at the wave of a  hand, and other features not typically found on rivals’ screens.

The company hasn’t disclosed the phone’s price, but Samsung says people can expect it be around the same as the previous version.

That version retailed for about $200.
