Last Thursday, it has been announced that the Samsung Galaxy S 4 will hit the stores on the third or fourth week of April but officials stayed mum about the pricing. However, at present their website hints at an approximate SRP of $579 for a 16 GB Galaxy S 4 but this might not be the net value.
Considering sales taxes, the Galaxy S 4 is still much cheaper than Apple's iPhone 5 and is quite close to how much the Galaxy S III was initially offered last year. We will surely be hearing about it soon from different carriers who would all want to be the first ones to announce their plans and packages for the Galaxy S 4.
Given a more affordable price than the iPhone 5, the Galaxy S 4 will really provide a tough competition to the iPhone 5 and even the upcoming HTC One.
Continuing AT&T's legacy as the first carrier to launch Samsung's Galaxy series, AT&T customers will be able to begin pre-ordering the Galaxy S® 4 beginning April 16 for $249.99* with a two-year commitment or $199.99 for a 16 GB model.
The US edition of the Galaxy S4 doesn't use Samsung's Exynos 5 Octa 5410 processor, but Qualcomm's quad-core Snapdragon 600. CPUs aside, it's not different from the Exynos version, featuring Android 4.2 Jelly Bean, a 5 inch Super AMOLED Full HD display, NFC, 2GB of RAM, 13MP rear camera, MicroSD card support, and a 2,600 mAh battery.

Samsung has recently started mass producing 16GB memory chips for use in data storage. The flash memory device has greatly improved from its inception up to the present as able to store kilobytes to Gigabytes of data. These 16GB chips may be combined together to create bigger flash memory in a smaller, more compact device.
Samsung plans to increase their production of 128-GB flash memory cards, which will utilize multi-level cell technology that can potentially make these memory cards more affordable. Samsung plans to produce plenty of these flash memory chips, despite ongoing debate on their durability as compared to single-level cell units.
They also plan to produce cards with densities that exceed 500GB. However, there is no news as to whether or not Samsung will use the same technology to increase the internal memory of their numerous Android devices. Time will come when mobile and tablet manufacturers will take their devices' memory capacities to the next level and for that we can't wait.
