So they finally announced the galaxy S4, with that said, I think they have made the decision for me, to get the “HTC One” or wait for the next iteration of the HTC. But since you are here because of the title “Official Specifications” I will provide them below.

Official Samsung Galaxy S4 specs

  • Dimensions: 136.6 x 69.8 x 7.9 mm, 130g
  • Battery: 2,600 mAh


The options that stand out to me are the 2600 mAh battery, that should carry a user 24hrs on medium use, and the octa-core processor (depending on market). 8 cores is nice, but what will you really use it for? My Dual Core Snapdragon processor is perfectly fine, I would hope that Samsung utilized the fastest storage memory possible, or the phone will still lag. With this aside, the phone will definitely sell, Samsung has the American market, Apple, your days on top are numbered.
