Samsung has unveiled its latest flagship phone, the Galaxy S4.

The S4 is lighter, thinner and stronger than the previous generation, features a faster processor, a slightly larger and super high-resolution screen, and an enhanced version of Google's Android OS with eye-tracking technology built into the handset.

The device was launched at a lavish, unusual and occasionally bizarre 'Broadway'-style press event at Radio City Music Hall in New York, where the South Korean tech giant hailed their new gadget as a breakthrough smartphone.

We've got all the details elsewhere, but if you just want to see pictures of the new device here they are:

  • The Galaxy S4 Homescreen

    The homescreen of the Galaxy S4. Here you can see that Samsung has reduced the "bezel" of the display, meaning that the glass stops closer to the horizontal edges of the phone. This allowed the screen to balloon to 5.0 inches from 4.8 inches without the device getting too much larger. Image credit: HuffPost/Jason Gilbert

  • S Health

    The Galaxy S4 has a new app called S Health, which acts as a health diary for the owner. The phone can track your steps and you can input each meal, and the phone will calculate your calorie intake. Optional accessories -- like a fitness wristband, digital scale and sleep belt -- can also measure your blood pressure, weight and glucose levels for a total health diary.

  • Galaxy S4 Camera

    The 13 megapixel camera ships with a load of new features, including an option to simultaneously snap a photo of yourself with the front camera overlaid onto your subject taken with the rear camera. You can choose what shape your floating head appears as; here, I am inside a heart with GigaOM's Kevin Tofel. Image credit: HuffPost/Jason Gilbert

  • Galaxy S4 Camera

    The software of the Galaxy S4 camera has been overhauled to mimic the Samsung digital cameras shooting modes (on bottom). One new mode is called Eraser, in which the camera can detect an unwanted photobomber in the background by his or her movement and then automatically delete that person from that photo using other shots.

  • S Translator

    Another new feature is S Translator, which can translate between 10 different languages. You can either input text via the keyboard or speak what you want translated into the microphone. Image credit: HuffPost/Jason Gilbert

  • Hover View

    Borrowing form the Galaxy Note, the Galaxy S4 can now detect when your finger is hovering over certain content and provide a preview of that content. Here, my finger hovers over an email and a preview of that email pops up on screen. Image credit: HuffPost/Jason Gilbert

  • Galaxy S4 Remote Control

    The Galaxy S4 contains an IR sensor to control the basic functions of your television. It also contains a channel grid so that you can tune to channels on your TV.<a href="http://www.technobuffalo.com/2013/02/22/htc-one-ir-blaster-sdk/" target="_blank">A similar feature was introduced on the HTC One earlier this year</a>.

  • South Korean Economy - Presidential Election Campaign Issue

Globally the S3 sold more than 40 million units in the first year of its release, and has positioned Samsung as Apple's biggest rival in the smartphone space.

Analysts said that Samsung needed to differentiate its devices more from the wider Android marketplace, and start to drive up profitability by integrating its own services more closely with the phone.
