Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom, S4 mini and S4 Active to be announced at the end of May
Samsung must be quite busy these days as it's helplessly trying to keep information leaks from happening. However, the company doesn't seem to be doing a great job at that and so we already know that the camera-centric Galaxy S4 Zoom, rugged Galaxy S4 Active and mid-range Galaxy S4 mini are all in the works.

According to the unofficial info that's currently available, the Galaxy S4 Zoom is to be released sometime in the summer. When it comes to the release dates of the other two, the sources have been a bit more specific, claiming that both the S4 Active and S4 mini will come out in July. Whether or not that is indeed going to be the case, we can't be sure.

Samsung fan-site SamMobile, though, has now published a new rumor going that Samsung is to announce all three devices by the end of this month. This information is important because it provides more credibility to the previous rumors about the release dates. A period of about a month or so between announcement and launch seems perfectly believable for Samsung devices.

Even though all three models have the Galaxy S4 branding, they are all expected to sport mid-range specs, although each will good at something. For example, the Galaxy S4 Zoom is expected to have a very capable camera in order to rival strong competitors from Nokia and Sony, while the Galaxy S4 Active will aim to be a rugged smartphone without much compromise in the design department. The Galaxy S4 mini, on the other hand, will be a more compact solution for those users who aren't into the gigantic smartphones of today.

a phone uglier than S4? hard to imagine but its samdung who knows. besides, there's no point in putting optical zoom because it'll make phone thicker, unless they have found a new way which i doubt.

Lol... So you took it as a serious challenge to find a phone uglier than S4? Very intelligent indeed. You must be fun at parties (that is called sarcasm btw, judging by your iq, you might as well call your friends and ask them if you're fun. LOL)

i think the entire landscape is muddled. you can never tell one model from another, by looks or name. every model has a letter and a number, but never for the same reason. i can't imagine how intimidating a new phone purchase must be to someone that doesn't follow the industry.

might be giving ppl choice but they are kinda over doing the whole galaxy line. Not only do the phones look very very similar but also the galaxy tablet line, like the note 8.0, tab 3 7.0, etc.. i honestly cannot remember all of them as there is so many now. Also in certain markets the note 8.0 tablet is able to make phone calls, so i really hope a person would use a hands free device as holding a tablet up to your head and talking on it would be quite comical.
