Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom visits the FCC?

The FCC received a visit from the Samsung SM-C101 which looks to be the Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom; this is the Samsung Galaxy S4 variant that focuses (groan) on the camera. The rear-facing shooter features a 16MP sensor with a 10X optical sensor and the FCC says that the device offers quad-band GSM and HSPA+ bands that match AT&T's...

This one might beat a Nokia this time - only in brick competition, not the camera.

I hope it will deliver something amazing...
its going to be interesting battle between Nokia EOS(elvis) vs Galaxy zoom vs Sony honami vs may be an HTC phablet with 8mp or more ultrapixel...
wonder who takes the cup

In don't think even a 8 ultrapixel camera would compete with these 16-41 megapixel monsters!

Wait a sec, if this has the same specs as the S4 but has a bigger camera, doesn't it make this the flagship? But i'm sure tie nokia Eos will rape this.

Nope, specs is not even close to S4, but closer to S4 mini.

Its not really about megapixels though is it....

It's not the megapixels, it's what you do with the megapixels. In this case, PureView superpixels, lossless digital zoom and better low light images.
Then again, yes. It IS all about the megapixels. 41 million pixels in a handheld device, in this case, a mobile smart cameraphone. :-)

face it, the 41 megapixel sensor on the 808 proved its not about the megapixel but you need the megapixel to oversample and for the loseless zoom
i cant see samsung been any competition there just tapping into all the markets with unispired recycled devices, this will be a galaxy camera with a phone attached basically........atleast HTC ventured out there with something different. sony look to be coming back to there glory days so samsung should buck up and stop thinking they can half ass it and saturate the market
what will be funny is watching all the sammy fanboys change there tune on thicker phones when this comes out

Let me guess... This will be frisbee like and have hyper glaze... What I don't get is why it won't have an equal processor to the active and the S4.. If its going to have a great camera

Please stop with the s4 it has its own line up no need for active zoom
