Samsung Premiere 2013 :Galaxy & ATIV
By Alex on 21st Jun, 2013
At an exclusive event in London’s Earl’s Court, Samsung unveiled the latest Galaxy and ATIV products to the world. Read on to discover everything we saw on the night.
Galaxy S4 mini
The lightweight and highly compact Galaxy S4 mini
weighs only 107g – much less than many smartphones. This means it offers superb portability and can be carried with total convenience and operated easily with one hand.
Despite its compact size, the device still delivers great entertainment and a smooth user experience. With a powerful 1.7GHz dual core processor and vivid 4.3” qHD Super AMOLED display, the Galaxy S4 mini offers big performance. Jean-Daniel Ayme, Samsung’s Vice President of European Telecom Operations told the audience, “Nothing has been compromised to put it together.”
Galaxy S4 Active
Developed for travel and exploration, the Galaxy S4 Active has been purpose-built to handle the elements. Its fully-sealed design stops harmful dust particles from entering the case. This can make all the difference in a dusty environment, for instance a hiking trail in the wilderness or a dirty construction site. The Galaxy S4 Active is also protected against water damage. The audience saw a demonstration of how the smartphone can be submerged for up to 30 minutes underwater at a depth of one metre. This robust new device even lets you shoot photos and video underwater, with a special optimised camera setting named ‘Aqua Mode’.
Galaxy S4 Zoom
With so many photos taken using mobile phones these days, the Galaxy S4 Zoom
is the logical next step. This versatile new device brings together the style and functionality of a Galaxy S4 smartphone with advanced photographic capabilities.
The new device was unveiled as the only smartphone in the world with 10x optical zoom. It also features a 16 megapixel CMOS sensor, xenon flash and optical image stabilisation. This means that users don’t have to carry both a phone and a compact camera with them anymore. The Galaxy S4 Zoom is all that’s needed to take great shots and share them using your smartphone. With the In-Call Photo Share feature, you can even take a spur-of-the-moment shot in the middle of a call and send it to whoever you’re talking to – all with the greatest of ease and without having to hang up first.
Smarter Shooting with the Galaxy NX Smart Camera
Another new device was revealed that brought together the ultimate fusion of photography and smart mobile technology. The Galaxy NX Smart Camera was introduced as “the world’s first interchangeable lens Android camera with 4G LTE”. This means that as well as featuring a 20.3-megapixel APS-C sensor for professional quality shooting, it also offers compatibility with a range of NX lenses, the Android 4.2 Jelly Bean operating system and advanced connectivity including 3G, WiFi and even superfast 4G.
With the new Galaxy NX Smart Camera, professionals and other more advanced photographers can bring all the benefits of a cutting-edge mobile device to their craft. This includes a wide range of great Android photography apps and innovative Samsung functionality such as Sound & Shot, Drama Shot and Story Album, earlier seen on the Galaxy S4. Users can now capture high-quality images using powerful NX hardware, manipulate photos directly on the camera and share or back up – wherever they are.
Versatile ATIV devices
A range of new ATIV devices were revealed at the Samsung Premiere, from notebooks to all-in-one PCs to tablets. Some even let you use two platforms: Windows 8 or Android. They also showcased a new technology, SideSync, that brings together Samsung’s latest products and makes life much easier.
ATIV One 5 Style
The new ATIV One 5 Style
all-in-one PC is a perfect example of how today’s Samsung smartphones and PCs are in harmony with each other. Sharing the same elegant design aesthetic as the Galaxy S4, it makes a similarly impressive visual impact.
With a powerful quad core processor, high-quality SoundAlive audio and ATI Radeon HD8330 graphics card, the ATIV One 5 Style also packs the performance to ensure that users experience applications, games and multimedia as seamlessly as possible.

SideSync lets you connect your Samsung Android device with an ATIV PC to easily share content between them and back up phone data, while charging the device’s battery at the same time. Thanks to Keyboard and Mouse-sharing Mode, you can control both your PC and your smartphone using your PC’s mouse and keyboard. This allows you to copy, paste, drag, and drop files between your PC and smartphone. You can also use your PC to type mobile messages, edit documents on your device and more.
