Cape Town – Cell C announced the launch of its packages for the Samsung Galaxy S4.

The company will be ranging the i9500 version of the device with the Exynos Octa processor.

Cell C customers will be able to purchase the Samsung Galaxy S4 on one of four contracts. All four packages also includes Straight Up data to 1GB.

“We knew this device was coming and we wanted to offer our smartphone users a bespoke solution that pairs an incredible handset with an amazing voice and data package – which is what we have done. With the additional data smartphone users can browse freely and not have to worry about their bill at the end of the month,” said Cell C CEO Alan Knott-Craig.

Packages

The device will be available on the Straight Up 100 for R399 per month, which includes 100 minutes, 100 SMSes and 1GB of data, topped up form 100MB.

Customers can purchase a Straight Up 200 package with the S4 for R499 per month, which will include 200 minutes, 200 SMSes and 1GB of data topped up from 200MB.

The device is also available on the Straight UP 400 and 800 packages for R649 and R899 respectively.

The Samsung Galaxy S4 will be available to customers from 27 April. Customers can also place their pre-orders by visiting Cell C's website.

The Samsung Galaxy S4 has a 13 megapixel main camera, similar to the Xperia, and the 12.7cm display is protected by Gorilla Glass.

Samsung has opted for Android 4.2.2 (Jelly Bean) as the operating system on the S4 and it is powered by a 1.6GHz Cortex-A15 quad core processor.

One reason the S4 might have the edge over rivals is that it is easier to repair.

The South Korean giant manufacturer sent media invitations for the launch of the S4 on 26 April as the company looks to capitalise on the success of the previous model, the SIII.

Samsung is hoping that the S4 exceeds the sales records of its predecessor. The SIII reached sales of 100 million units in 100 days and reports suggest that it topped 200 000 in SA.
