Samsung Galaxy S4: Dubai release on April 27

An event for the media scheduled for April 24; Bloggers given preview

Samsung Electronics gave bloggers in Dubai a hands-on experience of its brand new spearhead, the Samsung Galaxy S4 smartphone.

At an elite event at the Dubai Marina Yacht Club on Wednesday, bloggers were allowed to go preview the device and check out its various features before it hits store shelves later this month.

The South Korean company will be holding an event for the media a couple of weeks later, on April 24, 2013, after which the spearhead will be officially available in the UAE on April 27th onwards.

Here’s what the community tweeted about it:
