New color spotted on Samsung Galaxy S4, “Blue Arctic”

New color spotted on Samsung Galaxy S4, “Blue Arctic”
The lucky customers of Japan’s NTT DoCoMo will be the first to get their hands on this color. Otherwise, there is nothing else new about the hardware.

Will other markets see this color come their way? Seeing that the Galaxy S4’s predecessor, the Galaxy S3 came in a myriad of colors, like amethyst purple, amber brown, marble white, garnet red and pebble blue, we think it is just a matter of time before we see the color selection expand in other markets.

On DoCoMo’s product sheet we can see the current Galaxy S4 colors, black mist and white frost, which is what the rest of us have to choose from. Right alongside those choices we see "blue arctic." Samsung has seen enough success with its Galaxy line of smartphones that we suspect that the color line-up of the newest flagship will rapidly expand. Is there a color of the Galaxy S4 that you would not buy?

So, do I need to say f**k Sony too? My Xperia Z is laggy as well, it lags when playing Asphalt 7 and Dead Trigger. But never mind, the lag is not a big deal, I can live with that.

Maybe........wait, what is X lag? So, if a LG Optimus G lags, we can call it an O lag feature? If a HTC One lags, we can call it an O lag feature as well? That makes sense! xD

XZ lags when playing games?? Gs4 lags because of too much animations and unfinished software optimizations but it doesnt lag in games..And d s.update kicked out almost all d lag issues as what my friend said.. Htc got some tricks from apple in 2012 and thats why sense5 came to be as smooth as ios. Hoping that sony and samsung wud got those tricks also :)

Well, that would be weird lol, Apple helping improving Android. But well it could happen, because there are some companies like Mercedes Benz that released some engines and optimizations to third party companies like SsangYong Motors.

Looks good, but in my humble opinion, the black one looks better.

black is nice. but more colors to choose from is always better! except is they make brown... that was horrible. i wish there was a way to pick the exact color of your phone though for the freakin price tag!

You are right, it's better to have variety. This year seems like we are going to have amazing accessories for the S4, just by looking case makers, we can see how important is samsung now a days, and that's good because i feel that i have more ways to customize it, lol.

Hey idiot! The GS4 does not lag or have baterry issues. I own it and so does my brother. We have not once had such a issue with this. If people do have an issue with this it is either blind hate or a very small minority of people.My phone last a continues 11-13 hours with heavy use. 4G is always on plus I havnt had a chance to use my spare battery yet

8. yudi.nemesis unregistered

relax... don't be angry right now your S4 still the fastest android phone, woow your phone can last a ''continues'' 11-13 hours with ''heavy use'' and 4G always on damn your phone must be a ''special edition'' because last time i check on gsmarena battery test the snapdragon version with the latest update only last about 7:24 minutes of ''continues'' web browsing And if your phone is Exynos version the Cortex A15 must be super duper power efficient, because it can last 11-13 hours on ''continues heavy use''

Yah but htc one and gs4 are equal maybe.. Sense 5 is d fastest android skin when it comes to fluidity of d interface, gs4 is d fastest when it comes to heavy stuffs including web browsing(phonebuff's comparison) Frostdanny ddnt say that he is browsing d web continuously, maybe there is a strong 4g signal in their place.. And knowing that 4g goes to sleep when ur not using it, there will be significant time that battery juice doesnt deplete at all.

26. yudi.nemesis unregistered

hahaha...... what are you trying to say just stop your BS okay..!!!! the ''fastest'' mean the fastest CPU and GPU in real life other phone can be better than S4 he said ''CONTINUES HEAVY USE'' i've read his comment #19 it just average use not ''heavy use''

Posts: 765; Member since: Jan 21, 2013

huhh? did i say something wrong about that fastest chuchu??,, i just explained the meaning of fastest in real life scenarios as what the reviews are saying yhup Continues Heavy Use, and why bother use the 7:24 result of Continues Web Browsing.. Continues Heavy Use=Web Browsing? the new battery test of gs4 also includes 18:03 for talk time and 12:30 for video playback and 69hrs standby(sorry off-topic)

28. yudi.nemesis unregistered

why bother??? because he said ''CONTINUES HEAVY USE WITH 4G ALWAYS ON'' turn on all the S4 feature and do some heavy use with 4G always on. you will have these feature : S Lag, Plastic Microwave, and i'm sure you will need more than one battery for one day its okay i know samsung fanboys always (off topic) when they argue with me

Continues heavy use w/ 4g always on The dude also mentioned some possible reasons for longer battery life, the place might have a very good 4g signal and 4g will go to sleep when not in use(even the 4g is on) Then you turned out to be a stupid hater again. You are making this Phonearena a place of evil haters. I think you are more off topic than them. I observed a lot of articles, and straight and one on one arguments which you are involved into, you're pathetic hater with nonsense comments and Sony-based feedbacks

Accdg to ur username, u must b an avid Sony fan? :) a sony fan hitting the troll sony fanboy. Epic haha! @yudi-im referrng only to d standby time as off topic bcoz wer talking abt heavy usage Anyway way way way ;)

31. yudi.nemesis unregistered

yes how many time i have to said i'm GS2 user who hate samsung fans and my next phone will be Nokia or Sony. i'm hater but not stupid and closed minded like you why because you can accept the truth, i never off topic cuz i replay what stupid samsung fanboy says so when i said about the truth you say thats nonsense oh pleaseee.... you and other samsung fanboys bash HTC One, LG, iphone5 and Xperia Z like talking about GG3 but even without GG3 a fragile iphone5 can be more durable than S4 how about that S4 will not overheat because it uses plastic (PC) Samsung amoled is the best diplay?? display mate said its on par with last year IPS LCD and the list continues.... I'm samsung user who bash samsung just because samsung stupid fans keep talking BS (like S4 will survive 11-13 hours with heavy use and 4G always on)

Me? Oh? Im always reading PA but i am just a newbie in posting comments, so your excuses are flop :) and why should i bash those phones if i like all of them. If you find those fanboys annoying because they are bashing phones, then it is not smarter to do the same. I see, the overheating issue you have.. i read the thermal test of galaxy s4 and the result is very good but haters came to bash the result and provide the opposite.maybe the fanboys just defended the article. S2 and other amoleds except note2 and s4 have f**king displays, yet Amoled is still the best display for them and for me too because we want how vibrant it is, different screen modes and not because of natural colors

Samsung Taiwan and Samsung Singapore. an international company is always an international company.. A fraud can always escape. An error can always occur. An accident can always happen. Same with Samsung, Samsung Taiwan and Singapore management might not be so well-rounded, but it doesnt mean Samsung International knows everything and tolerates every bad thing.. Greed is a common thing. Pressure is a common thing. Profit is a common thing in all businesses.. The company is not ruining your life. The company did not do anything to your and my beloved Sony. If you are affected with the fanboys actions, dont act like you are one or worse than them..

42. yudi.nemesis unregistered

paid someone you said An error and when samsung singapore stealing the picture do some photoshop and claimed that the picture is taking by samusng camera you said An accident so i'm evil hatters when i said something bad (the truth) about samsung but when samsung doing some nasty stuff ohh.. its just An accident and error. weeew you user name use SONY but your samsung soul is easy to see

No!! Error, Fraud and accident.. Those are just some examples that i have given that some things might not be detected by the top management looking at the business segments.. Those paying trolls and stealing pictures arent errors, fraud or accident. These are immoral acts of the business segments-Taiwan and Singapore.. don't make your own story about what im saying Just because you cannot see within me the likes of you makes me a fake Sony lover?

44. yudi.nemesis unregistered

haha yes you are just fake Sony lover just stop the fu***ng BS!!! your are just samsung fanboy who use Sony username when someone said something bad (the truth) about samsung you'll complains to them. and you are have more post on samsung article than Sony or other manufacturers article and you always defend samsung even when they telling you the truth just like i said your samsung soul is easly to see i bet after you read my comment you will start to post somethings on other manufacturer article
