Samsung Offers Chance for Fans to Win Free Galaxy S4

Samsung is now running a promotion where people could win the Galaxy S4 smartphone for free.

In order to participate, Samsung fans must register with the company to receive free updates on the device. This will make them eligible to win the high-end smartphone for free. In order to register; users will need to provide the company with their name, email address, and cell phone number.

Users can avoid receiving advertising material by un-checking the little box. Participants must be residents of the U.S. and also must be 18 and older.

This Galaxy S4 was finally unveiled by Samsung at last week's Mobile "Unpacked" event in New York City.

Many of the rumored specifications were dead on, including the 5-inch display with 441 ppi. However, rumors of Samsung switching to LCD were incorrect, as the device still packs a Super AMOLED.

The Galaxy S4 will come in two colors at launch: Black Mist and White Frost. It also has LTE and HSPA+ connectivity.

Other rumored specs such as the 13-megapixel rear camera, 2-megapixel front camera, and Android 4.2.2 JellyBean are also featured on the Galaxy S4.

The Galaxy S4's 1.9GHz Snapdragon 600 doubled the speed of both the iPhone 5 and BlackBerry Z10 chipsets in a recent GeekBench rating.

The Galaxy S4 was compared to all of the flagship devices being offered by other companies including LG, HTC, BlackBerry and Apple. The device's processor paired with its 2GB RAM seemed to crush the competition.

The Octa-core version of the Galaxy S4 is expected to be even faster than the version that was used in this test. In terms of speed, the closest smartphone to Samsung's is the HTC One, which is expected to launch in the coming weeks. The LG Nexus 4 ranked third followed by the quad-core Galaxy S3, iPhone 5, BlackBerry Z10, and dual-core Galaxy S3.
