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.
"Samsung is a consummate innovator and their dedication to delivering
devices that enrich people's lives shines brightly in the new GALAXY
S4," said Dave Fuller, Chief Marketing Officer, TELUS. "Our customers

helping them to be more efficient - all this from a service provider
that listens to them and provides an outstanding service experience on

combine the awesome GALAXY S4 with programs such as TELUS Learning
Centres and the largest 4G LTE network in Canada."
