On the 30th of April the S IV was presented to the Brazilians, in Rio de Janeiro. In some areas of the country the equipment is already available, but it will only be available countrywide on the 16th of May.
The Brazilian division of Samsung decided to take a step forward and also present the new Galaxy Note 8.0 and the Galaxy Mega 6.3. The recent Samsung devices were presented by the actor Dan Stullbach and Samsung’s Communications CEO, Michael Piestun.
There will be only two versions of the Galaxy S IV available, and both of them have only 16GB of space, from which the user only has 8GB available. According to Michael Piestun the 16GB is more than enough for Brazilian users, and this makes the big difference between the two versions the CPU and GPU. The arrival of the 32 and 64GB versions is not out of the picture, if the Brazilian market responds well to the S IV these versions will be available later.
The two versions of the S IV are the already known I9500, 3G with a Quad Core Exynos 5, and the I9505, 4G with a Quad Core Snapdragon 600. Has you may already known the big differences are the CPU and GPU since every other specification is exactly the same on both versions. If you want to known the differences a little better check out the full specifications of each:
Until the 8th of this month, the S IV will be available in southern Brazil and its capital Brasilia, and will be available in every other city on the 16th.
When it comes to the Galaxy Note 8.0, it was presented in the same event as the S IV but it is already on sale in the main stores across the country, with a price tag of 1.599 R$. The Note 8.0 arrives at the market with a 1.6GHz Quad Core, 2GB of Ram and 16GB of internal memory.
There was also time to present the Galaxy Mega, with its enormous 6.3-inch screen and 4G. It will likely be available across the country by the end of July at a price tag of 1.999 R$.
These devices are presented at really high prices when you take into account the current Brazilian mobile market and it will take some time to see the numbers and for Samsung to analyze if it was a mistake. Many markets have complained about the enormity of recent price tags of Samsung devices, but in Brazil there is no possible explanation since the devices are produced in country, so there are no exportation costs to inflate the prices.
