The fourth generation of the successful GALAXY S family was designed with
insight from consumers to truly understand what matters most in their lives.
With an enhanced feature set, the technologically innovative GALAXY S4 truly
enables Canadians to live in a world of infinite possibilities.
Designed to get Canadians closer to what matters and make every moment
meaningful, the GALAXY S4 gives consumers great enjoyment through enhancements
to the user interface. New navigation features include 'Smart Pause', which
allows users to scroll the screen based on where they are looking. Another
feature is 'Air View' which allows users to hover their fingers over the
screen to preview the content of an email, S Planner, gallery image or video
without having to open it. And with 'Air Gesture', users can change the music
track, scroll up and down a web page, or accept a call with a wave of the hand.
The device features a highly crafted design that surrounds a larger screen
size and battery, minimized bezel; all housed in a light (130g) and slim
(7.9mm) shape. The Samsung GALAXY S4 is slimmer yet stronger, with less to
hold yet more to see, with the world's first Full HD Super AMOLED display.
Equipped with 13 megapixel rear camera, the GS4 also boasts a 'Dual Camera,'
that allows simultaneous use of both front and rear cameras and enables
functions such as 'Dual Video Call', allowing users to make and receive a
video call with friends and family while showing what you are looking at
during the call.

that enrich people's lives shines brightly in the new GALAXY S4," said Dave
Fuller, Chief Marketing Officer, TELUS. "Our customers demand more from their
