Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom, S4 mini and S4 Active to be announced at the end of May
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.

Your Play on words with Samsung shows your stupidity and if you want an ugly phone... BlackBerry R10

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)

Thousand of variant of Galaxy devices are out there in market, and now we will see Hundreds of variant of S4 in market............ C'mon samsung now at least redesign ur phones if you can't rename them, it's so tough to distinguish one galaxy phone from the other........

whats your point? lumais and xperias pretty much all look the same not just the galaxy series, and at the end of the day its your choice to buy samsung products or not.

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.

1 device launch per week..great going Samsung...just make minor tweaks and launch a new phone with different price tag...all phones will look similar still! What Bulls**t!
45. ecmedic4 (Posts: 202; Member since: 02 May 2013)
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.

16. Jason2k13 (Posts: 652; Member since: 28 Mar 2013)
its funny how people/trolls are complaining that there are too many galaxy phones, but at the end of the day no one is forced to buy Samsung products, and it will definitely not affect their lives in anyway.
18. chaoticrazor (Posts: 2347; Member since: 28 Aug 2012)
its funny how you only defend samsung and pile on to other companys with your fellow samsung fanboys and slate them
stop trying to act hard done by and grow a pair your quick to dish it out to other companies but if someone says anything that isnt praise about Samsung you get you panties in a twist
19. Jason2k13 (Posts: 652; Member since: 28 Mar 2013)
i like nokia and htc low light quality, i like iphones smoothness and apps, i like xperia's design and waterproof feature i like motorolas battery but my favourite is samsung... so come again?
Its weird how a samsung troll like you is telling me off lol
24. chaoticrazor (Posts: 2347; Member since: 28 Aug 2012)
kid your just saying what you see on p.a articles. general points about other phones to try and give you validity...try again
your another samsung fanboy your comments show this
also how am i a samsung troll? come on im bored of crap like you labelling me without proof so give some real reasons
wp and bb articles get swarmed by samsung muppets yet thats fine but when people point out samsungs flaws you act like they slapped you in the face
26. Jason2k13 (Posts: 652; Member since: 28 Mar 2013)
and whats wrong with defending a product that i like? how about you answer the post that i just said? at-least my comments sounds normal and the truth
and i do have proof your a samsung troll, almost every positive comments that somebody post about samsung, your quick to react telling them they are trolling even though thats what your doing now.
prove your not a troll, by not posting negative comments to people who likes samsung products.
32. chaoticrazor (Posts: 2347; Member since: 28 Aug 2012)
haha you truly see only what you want not whats actually there
another idiot fanboy kid who can go in the pile of fanboys, good job following the crowd herd mentality at its best
and tell me why dont you ever say to your fellow fanboys to stop when they slate everything else? see your one sided. besides you say i hate anything positive about samsung well thats bs.....
ive always gave credit to samsung for making the phablet popular but recently they are just copying apple. small updates same uninspired design that isnt as good as the competition.....and loads of gimmicky features
see you will see this as a slap in the face and i couldnt care. how about you, troll, sleepyoz and the others stay off the wp and bb articles and HTC ones too. all you lot do is praise samsung so go make a blog where you can be deluded
so again wheres this proof you say you have fanboy?
33. Jason2k13 (Posts: 652; Member since: 28 Mar 2013)
the fact that u been replying negative comments to my post and to everyone else who praise samsung, what more proof do u need?
why so butthurt? does it turn you on to insult people who likes samsung?

Being ugly is being generic, that means Samsung did it, they change the way of how an android phone looks.
