Here's your first look at the Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom
posted by Alan F. / Jun 07, 2013, 4:59 PM
The model has a shutter button added which is an important touch for a camera-centric device. The phone is equipped with a 4.3 inch Super AMOLED screen with 540 x 960 resolution (qHD). A dual-core 1.6GHz processor does the heavy lifting and the 16MP rear-facing camera is equipped with a 10X optical zoom. Sammy's TouchWiz Nature UX runs on top of Android 4.2.2. The handset comes with 8GB of native storage that can be expanded with the use of the unit's 64GB capacity microSD slot.
The rendering makes the Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom look like a handful. Any takers?

What do you expect from a device with 10× optical zoom? Compact cameras are still relatively thick, what more adding phone functionality in it. If you don't like it then it's not for you. Nobody forces you to buy it.

This is innovation, bro... A Galaxy S4 and duct taped together with Galaxy Camera, and it should be named Samsung Galaxy S4 Tumor.

Won't be on par with Nokia Lumia EOS. And dual-core? They should have at least retained the quad-core of Galaxy Camera. And qHD? What's the point of viewing high quality 16mp shots on a 540x960 screen?

Should be called the Galaxy S4 Mini Zoom (Since it has similar specs to the S4 Mini), or the Galaxy S4 Zoom Mini

I don't normally like camera phones, but I have to say I like this... a lot less than I like Lumia EOS. That one at least looks good, and I think probably even has a better camera. Samsung is definitely watering down the brand of the Galaxy label. Take note of this HTC... don't water down the One branding.

I think that with that high of "quality" of camera on a device, the minimal amount of storage should be 32Gb. On a similar but different note, I think that the "standard" minimal amount of storage on any new high-end device should start becoming 32Gb. That or manufacturers should start including minimal of an 8Gb microSD with devices.
