Galaxy S4 Zoom 16 MP cameraphone tipped as Samsung's answer to Nokia EOS and Sony Honami

0. phoneArena 07 May 2013, 04:39 posted on

As the name implies, Samsung might be stuffing optical zoom capabilities in there, but the rest of the rumored specs are mid-range - a 4.3” qHD SAMOLED display, 8 GB of storage plus supported microSD card up to 64 GB, Bluetooth 4.0 LE, Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n and A-GPS. Android Jelly Bean will be running the show plus the inevitable TouchWiz Nature UX. Processor and RAM aren't disclosed yet...

Samsung, you still can't beat the Lord Pureview (Nokia) and the Wonderful Exmor RS Cybershot (Sony)!

Samsung, when you can't do it, don't do it!

kid we all can see your another blind samsung fanboy but go talk crap elsewhere now your boring

sony have it in them to blow samsung out the water in terms of camera they just need to shape up and go back to the days they were a real talking point

i remember the k800 with its 3.2 cybershot camera it got everyones attention back then

sony will hopefully shut you fanboys up, as for nokia well its taken others 3 years to catch up with the n8......there always ahead

kid why are you living in the past, how about the current sony phones right now? blind fanboys like you need to realise sony is not doing well in their camera department and im talking about smartphones, not old dumbphones which you probably own.

its always funny to make idiots like you look even more foolish

ok so where to start, ohh easy you say im living in the past when if you could actually read and comprehend i was referring back to when sony was the talk of the town basically and that sony have it in them to do it again

samsung are on top thanks to playing the same marketing game as apple, there adverts are childish in many ways yet fanboys like you are so up there ass you will troll on these articles

dumbphones which i own, hmmm i own an 808 bought for the reason its the best cameraphone and thats what i like.....your the only dumb one

I didn't said the Xperia Z's camera is better than the S4's! I only said Samsung's camera still can't beat the Nokia's Pureview and Sony's Exmor RS Cybershot!

Are you butthurt? But soon, Sony's Honami and Nokia's EOS will shut you Samsung fanboys up. :)

i think the camera on Xperia Z can be better than S4.
SONY just need fix the software the only things they must do is ask some help from Sony camera division

I hope the software will be fixed with the Android 4.2 update for the Xperia Z, and I think that the camera will be alright in the Honami and the Togari, I hope. I wish all the best to Sony. :)

butthurt? why would i be buthurt when sony hasn't proven to beat samsung in terms of the camera department in smartphones? and how do you know sony's exmor RS cybershot will beat samsung when its not even out and tested yet?

I bet your the same fanboy who said the same thing, before the announcement of Xperia Z came out.

First, you said "since when did sony made good cameras in their phones?". Well, if you didn't know, Sony makes good cameras in their phones, but not the best.

Second, let's not talk about Exmor RS, let's talk about Cybershot, Cybershot feature Carl Zeiss lens, and it takes great pictures, and Sony Ericsson have made some Cybershot phones back in 2008-2009. So Exmor RS+Cybershot will take even better pictures right?

I'm sorry that I was being rude, but the first thing you said really makes me angry.

Yes and I agree cybershot is good but cmon. It hasn't appendage prevently on any recent Sony smartphones which implies Sony are losing there touch in the smartphone camera department

I support Jason2k13 here... He is right when he says all recent Sony smartphones have failed to beat the recent galaxy phones that is fact... However if we are talking actual cameras Sony will win but we aren't we are talking camera phones big difference!

im loving how now samsung fanboys dish it out then when they get put in there place they act the victims.....so funny

your say about other fans but what about you and your fellow sammy fans, your the worst kind of fanboys

one example is before the s4 was released you all said samsung change the design or we wont buy. samsung keep the unispired design suddenly you change your tune and praise them

another one is how you slated the iphone when it has any problem, s4 reported overheating and screen issues you defend saying its nothing major . this happens to the first batch.....funny how you didnt see that as the case with the iphone or if HTC devices have problems

also and my favourite sales, when the iphone dominated you shouted sales dont mean its the best people just follow thats why it sells...............samsung s3-s4 start selling well and its a different story'' ohh look at the sales it shows the s4 is the best'' ive seen comments like that so many times on here

see your the worst kind of fanboy and ive seen it all over the site, so you play the victim but people know what you are

The design myt be d same, but there are still complling factors of it like the bigger screen in a very compact body w/ tiny bezels that made it look prettier, for me, huh

For me, what uve said is true for specfc fanboys but i think they are only few very few, .. still u dont know if d same person acted in every situation uve mentiond that will make ur arguments valid

I think, yhe worst fanboys are hmmmmmm well every sammy hater, look at d artcles "htc one sellng well but not as well as gs4", cool cases for gs4, etc etc, u can see how sammy haters threw d first harsh attacks

wake up boy.. i think you are insanely wrong if you thought i ever did anything like you've said above.. maybe you got a wrong person because i definetily never did like anything you've said above.. i even never come to any htc or nokia or sony article to bash them... but what you're doin in many of samsung articles?? if you hate samsung just hate it.. don't make yourself look so butthurt and dumb.. you are one of the worst nokia fanboy i ever met..

haha you lot are truly pathetic, samsung fanboys love to dish it out and yes it was you and another sammy boy was macceo or summit like that

im onl here if you look at my comments talking about how sony can come back as you sammy boys love to slate them

ohh but its ok for the likes of you and sleepyoz who is a paid samsung boy to hate others like sony and nokia, even HTC yet say anything about samsung you get the trolls thumbing you down and 3-4 fanboys teaming up as they believe numbers means they win

your no different as you dont say a word against sleepy when he slates the 920 but come running to samsungs side

104. chaoticrazor (Posts: 2347; Member since: 28 Aug 2012)


you have no ground to call me an immature hater, ive seen your comments always pro samsung you have grouped together with others to slate the htc one many times and you attack people but only when your with your fellow fanboys

you are one way samsung, you wont ever give back up to anyone defending against a samsung fanboy even when the fanboys just trolling etc

so dont try act the voice of reason kid you been on here what , a month ive seen your type alot would be nice having actual fair unbiased people on here

Duhh??? I like htc one bcoz of d boomsound, Zoe and the Improved camera not d initial firmware w/ sucking images.. sometimes it is just ryt to tell that htc one's aluminum has its own disadvantages when the plastic is d hot topic and being bashed.. i had a bad intial impression w/ d one bcoz of its camera, but the firat thing that i mentioned abt it is "beautiful"..
Now d one has improved camera, den im leaning towards it but i refuse bcoz i want 5' display replcble batt at microSD so i just recommnded it ro my brother so i can also play w/ that beauty..and i even defendd htc w/ my previous commnts.. i cancld my gs4 preorder bcoz im afraid of faulty handset and im honest abt that in my previous comments.. what i can remember is d way i crtcize Xperia Z bcoz my sister had a bad experience w/ dat handset, and after all i want sony Honami..

But im honest, i am more a fan of samsung than htc and sony,,why??? Bcoz theyr d one who made d grandest things in android community, and tell me are there any reasonable reasons for u and others like u to hate samsung? The company ddnt even ruin ur life.. d same w/ me, i have no ryt to hate htc sony lg nokia apple etc
