Samsung has finally taken the plastic wrapping off its Galaxy S4 smart phone -- click through the photos above to ogle the company's massive new mobile from every angle.

So what's new in Samsung's next flagship? First off you get a 5-inch, 1080p screen that uses HD Super AMOLED display tech, and a slimmer bezel meaning you'll be looking at more screen and less boring plastic.
