Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom announced for AT&T, $200 on contract
It is official, guys – the Samsung Galaxy S4 zoom is coming to AT&T and it won't be long until the handset lands on the carrier's shelves. Samsung's camera-centric smartphone (or camera that can also make calls, if you will) is scheduled to launch on November 8, priced at $199.99 on a 2-year contract. Alternatively, the device can be purchased via the carrier's frequent upgrade plan, AT&T Next. The latter option puts a Samsung Galaxy S4 zoom in your hands in exchange for 20 equal monthly payments of $25 each.

For those who need a refresher, the Samsung Galaxy S4 zoom is an Android 4.2 smartphone that can easily put a basic point-and-shoot camera to shame. (Check out our S4 zoom camera comparison and see how it performs.) It features a 16MP camera with optical image stabilization, 10x optical zoom, a dedicated 2-stage camera key, and manual camera controls that let you fine tune the image to your liking. The hardware under the hood, however, is not as impressive. There's a dual-core Exynos 4212 processor running the show and a 4.3-inch Super AMOLED display with a resolution of 540 by 960 pixels gracing the handset's front. Being an AT&T smartphone, the Samsung Galaxy S4 zoom can fly on the carrier's LTE network, allowing you to quickly post those super-awesome images right after you take them. 

Those who purchase a Samsung Galaxy S4 zoom on a 2-year contract or on an AT&T Next installment may take advantage of a promo letting them grab a Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 for free – be it on a 2-year contract or with it added to an existing mobile share plan for $10 per month extra. Also, trading in a used phone when purchasing the Samsung Galaxy S4 zoom entitles you to an AT&T promotion card worth a minimum of $100. The credit can be used towards the purchase of a connected tablet, new accessories, or a wireless service bill.
