Thanks to Samsung, I am able to be one of the few in Singapore to take a look at the latest Samsung GALAXY S4. And also, I am able to see some of the accessories that will be accompanying this device.

If you are looking for pricing in Singapore, I have none as it is not available yet. And all these handsets are pre-production sets, BTW. According to Samsung, the Samsung GALAXY S4 will be available from May, and it will come in 1.9 GHz Quad Core (not Octa Core) and will be in 16GB only. Available in Black Mist and White Frost color.

Note that although the sides look like they are made of metallic material, they are not. In fact, they are just polycarbonate in silver color.
