Samsung continues its campaign in taking smartphone supremacy from Apple with its new, anticipated Galaxy S4.

The company's flagship phone features a 5-inch AMOLED panel with 441 ppi for unparalleled clarity. It runs on Android 4.2.2 and powered by 2GB RAM. Weighing at 130 grams, the S4 is 0.7 mm thinner and 3 grams lighter than its predecessor, despite its larger screen and battery.

The camera is also improved with f/2.2 aperture and autofocus, and a bump to 13 megapixels for the rear-facing camera and 2 megapixels for the front-facing camera -- which ties into a dual video call mode which allows callers to see what you're looking at during video calls.

The Samsung Galaxy S4 will be available in black and white with other hues in later months. A retail price was unknown at press time. It hit stores worldwide at the end of April.
