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.

Just because we have the technology, it doesn't mean that it should be done. :-P

the S4 Zoom is a flop the S4 Active is a flop. I don't even know why Samsung is still trying to sell these in North American. No one is interested in a 200$ on contract phone-camera when 100$ gets you a better point and shoot.

Yes they do, but some may not want it because if software limitations. I have a Note 2 and have looked at Note 3 and Lumia 1020. First I am not a fan of the tiling on WM but cam dwal with it. Second I send alot of emails and it requires reply and insert documents back into the email. Windows Mobile and iOS neither allow for this only Android does. This can be one reason to not do a 1020.

Hi! The promo actually allows S4 zoom buyers to get the Galaxy Tab 3 tablet for free, not the Note 3, as the post initially stated. Sorry about that.
