We already know that the Samsung Galaxy S4 will be presented on March 14 . We also know that Samsung would be considering the possibility of integrating two different processors, depending on the model that is going to land in each country. Now we have to talk about the applications , one of the characteristics that usually differentiates the phone from the rest of the terminals of its brand, but also the mobiles of those companies that compete conscientiously. According to new rumors, apart from the smart functions that we already know, the fourth generation of the Samsung Galaxy S would arrive equipped, at least, with four different applications .
One of the first would have been baptized as S Health . It is an application that you probably already know, since in some markets (such as the United States or the UK) it was already operational for the Samsung Galaxy S3 . The new edition of S Health , which this time could be natively on the Samsung Galaxy S4 , would incorporate important improvements as the user. S Health is an application that works like a little digital doctor, capable of controlling blood pressure or diabetes level . The tool is capable of connecting via Bluetooth and USBto other devices, such as cardiac connectors. The objective? Follow the evolution of the patient / user by recording all the data, measuring the amount of exercise and recommending, if necessary, a visit to the real doctor.
The second application built into the phone would be payWave . It is a service that facilitates payments through mobile phones. It was created by Samsung itself in collaboration with Visa and tested at the 2012 London Olympics . This information has already been confirmed by Visa , so users can make this option valid. The system works through NFC (Near Field Communication) technology . It will be necessary to see, in that case, to what extent the user can make use of this option, because the truth is that the NFC is not yet being applied in a normalized way in the real world.
And now we go for the third. In recent weeks some report that support the theory that have emerged Sony has everything ready to submit an application for PlayStation 4 ara iOS and Android . The truth is that at this time we have no record of the name of the first device that could have this app installed , but the truth is that the Samsung Galaxy S4 would be an excellent option for the user to take advantage of all the advantages of this smartphone through the videogames.
But this is not all. Samsung presented at the Mobile World Congress 2013 a new system called KNOX , whose purpose is to offer a more reinforced level of security in smartphones that are used for business / professional and personal purposes . There is a trend, dubbed BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) that is committed to employees using personal devices for work, with added advantages as interesting as increased productivity . This solution carries some security risks that can be addressed through Samsung KNOX . Samsunghas already announced that this software tool will be available on Samsung Android devices from the second quarter of 2013 . The Samsung Galaxy S4 will be presented to the general public at the ideal time to integrate KNOX natively.
