Unhappy that the videos recorded with the Samsung Galaxy S4 are not spectacular enough, Szabi Ignacz, one of the Samsung Mobilers members, though it would be nice to attach the new flagship smartphone of the South Korean phone maker to a drone and send it in an expedition above Union Square in Brasov, Romania.
As these flying toys are getting accessible to the public, Szabi Ignacz sought help to EyeCloud, a local firm specialized in aerial filming and photography, that provided a small sized hexacopter, capable of taking the Samsung Galaxy S4 on board on its ventral side.
Because the hitching system didn’t use a stabilization or vibration damping system, the images aren’t perfect, but they are more than satisfying considering that we are talking about the camera of a smartphone.
Just to refresh your memory, I will remind you that the Samsung Galaxy S4 boasts a 5-inch full HD display with Super AMOLED technology and that is running Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean with TouchWiz Nature UX interface out of the box. The smartphone also comes with 2 GB of RAM, 16/32/64 GB of internal storage (expandable using microSD cards of up to 64 GB) and a feature-packed 13 megapixel camera with autofocus, LED flash, Dual Shot, Simultaneous HD video and image recording, geo-tagging, touch focus, face and smile detection, image stabilization, HDR, and 1080p video recording support.
The connectivity features of the Samsung Galaxy S4 are worthy of a modern smartphone and include Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac, dual-band, DLNA, Wi-Fi Direct, Wi-Fi hotspot, HSDPA, 42.2 Mbps; HSUPA, 5.76 Mbps; LTE, Cat3, 50 Mbps UL, 100 Mbps DL, Bluetooth v4.0 with A2DP, EDR, LE, NFC chip, IR blaster, and microUSB v2.0 (MHL 2) with USB On-the-go, USB Host.
There are two Samsung Galaxy S4 variants currently on the market: one powered by Samsung’s proprietary octo-core Exynos 5 Octa SoC with four 1.6 GHz Cortex A15 cores (for the tasks that require more processing power) and four 1.2 GHz Cortex A7 Cores (for the basic tasks and improved battery life) and PowerVR SGX 544MP3, and the other one underpinned by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 600 chipset based on four Krait 300 cores clocked at 1.9 GHz and Adreno 320 GPU.
But let’s cut the chit chat and watch the flying Samsung Galaxy S4 video.
