First sample picture claimed from the Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom cameraphone appears

By now everyone plus the dog know that Samsung is preparing to strike back with a cameraphone of its own against the expected onslaught of Nokia Lumia EOS and the Sony i1.

It could be called Galaxy S4 Zoom (SM-C101), and eventually feature 10x optical zoom, but the screen size and other specs are likely to be more akin a Galaxy S4 Mini, rather than cannibalizing on the sales of the flagship S4.

Now the ever-telling Snapseed has apparently become home for the first sample picture from what is rumored to be a 16 MP camera unit on the back of the S4 Zoom. 

The picture is with obviously resized resolution, and carrying the enticing name "Morning view", snapped by one Shahriar Hossain, who just happens to be working at Samsung Electronics. Take a peek below what can we expect once Samsung's Android cameraphone gets eventually introduced at the end of the month.
