Hello there Samsung Galaxy S4!

We’re here right now at NBC Tent, Fort Bonifacio, Taguig City for the Samsung Galaxy S4 Media and Trade Launch. As expected the event hasn’t started yet (events like these usually starts late). However the pleasant surprise is that they’re actually pre-selling the Samsung Galaxy S4 tonight! There’s a booth just outside of the main hall and one of their distributors, Memo Express, is selling the Galaxy S4 for Php30,990. Freebies include NFC Tags and the Samsung Galaxy S4 S View Cover.

We’ll write our initial review and hands-on posts when we get back but we just wanted to share with you guys that we have a unit on-hand. We’ve only had a couple of minutes with it but we can definitely say that the form factor is very similar to the Samsung Galaxy S3. The main differences of course are what’s inside (this device has monstrous specifications), the quality of the materials, and the thin screen-to-bezel ratio.

Here are a few more photos:

As we write this article there’s a steady stream of celebrities coming in. We’ve spotted Paolo Bediones and what seems to be like half of the gwapings of the Azkals (lol). We’ll report back when we get back to HQ.

Congratulations Samsung! The Galaxy S4 will definitely sell like hotcakes.
