Description

Samsung just outed the rumored Galaxy S4 Zoom cameraphone, and it is every bit as resemblant to the Galaxy Camera concept as on the leaked pictures before. The mian differences are that it is more compact, achieved by limiting the zoom level to 10x instead of the 21x on Samsung's Android camera, and it has voice calling functions, not only data connectivity. At the front it resembles a Galaxy S4 Mini, with the same 4.3" 540x960 pixels Super AMOLED display, but is powered by a 1.5 GHz dual-core Exynos 4212 processor, aided by 1.5 GB of RAM, 8 GB of internal storage plus a microSD slot for expansion, and, of course, that sweet 16 MP camera with 10x optical zoom on the back and optical image stabilization. Android 4.2 is running the show, and the phone packs a 2330 mAh battery to power it all up. The body is officially 15.4mm thick, yet in the camera lens part, which has a zoom ring, that goes to 25mm, and the typical grip bulge is here as well, so it is more of a compact camera with phone functions than anything else. Still, it is the first phone with 10x optical zoom, Xenon flash and all the bells and whistles of manual control over your photos and videos, like aperture, exposure and white balance settings, as well as no less than 26 preset shooting modes, including exotics like Baby, Golf and Smart Suggest, where the camera app tells you which shooting modes are suitable for the current scene.

  • Resolution:
    • 540 x 960 pixels
  • Pixel density:

    Pixel density - The pixel density of a display represents the number of pixels over an area of one inch. It’s measured in “pixels per inch”, or ppi. The higher the number, the more detailed and good-looking the display is.

    • 256 ppi
  • Technology:

    Technology - There are two main screen technologies currently used in phones and tablets: LCD and AMOLED. The former usually features a light source and liquid crystals, while the latter is based on organic light-emitting diodes. Newer LCD variations like IPS-LCD and Super-LCD allow for very accurate color reproduction and very wide viewing angles, where no significant image quality loss is observed. Current AMOLED screens differ in such a way that they can exhibit much more saturated colors (sometimes too much) and incredibly high contrast levels, which is due to black color being completely black in AMOLED displays.

Works best in clear weather. A-GPS - A-GPS stands for Assisted GPS and is the industry standard for positioning and navigation. “Assisted” means that it can use local wireless networks, in addition to satellites, for quicker and more precise localization. GLONASS - GLONASS is a global positioning system, developed by the Russian Federation. It’s very similar to GPS, but isn’t so popular in cell phones.
