Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom pictures leak, confirming earlier rendering

Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom pictures leak, confirming earlier rendering
You might recall that on Friday, we showed you a rendering for the Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom. The camera-centric variant of  the Samsung Galaxy S4 comes with a 16MP rear snapper that features a 10x optical zoom. The rendering on Friday was the first look at the device and it revealed a prominent camera hump on the back of the unit.

On Saturday, a trio of new pictures were leaked for the Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom and they seemed to confirm the earlier rendering. Because of the smaller 4.3 inch screen, the front of the device resembles the Samsung Galaxy S4 mini. The back of the device looks like the Android powered Samsung Galaxy Camera thanks to the camera hump. The thickness of the device also brings the Samsung Galaxy Camera to mind. This might not be a phone that fits perfectly in the hand or pocket.

The Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom, along with the Samsung Galaxy S4 mini, and the water and dust resistant Samsung Galaxy S4 Active, are all scheduled to be unwrapped at the Samsung Premiere event on June 20th in the U.K.

I prefer the PureView concept over the large zoom lens for cameraphone.

That moment when a 41mp camera phone is much thinner than a 16mp camera phone.

This isn't meant to be a phone with great camera... It's meant to be a great camera with phone capabilities. And PureView is not that good

PureView is not that good..??? you serious bro !!!

"Pureview is not that good" This statement is showing your level of stupidity. If Pureview is not that good then why 808 is still the champion in camera? Even Galaxy Camera surrendered to PV. Now, Galaxy Zoom will surrender to Nokia Elvis (EOS)

Galaxy camera sucked, I think it had the same sensor as SGS3. It took very poor pictures for being a camera-phone. But maybe this year Samsung will get it right and will own everybody. We will see.

I have not seen one 808 anywhere and you don't even want to own one yourself either.

if the pureview was soo good then why havent they sold any in the us or in other places?i was just in mexico last week everyone has a SAMSUNG or IPHONE im in Madrid right now and was in the uk yesterday nobody and i mean nobody owned a nokia phone mostly everyone here owns a SAMSUNG or IPHONE.

Because everyone do not care about Camera. 808 was built for Photography with Phone capabilities. I know, Symbian was weak. Android and iOS have great number of apps. They have dev support that's why they are leading. Now the same thing is going with Windows phone. WP still lacks in many major apps. It needs time.

The Sammy Zoom looks like an iteration of the Galaxy Camera with the addition of telephony function.

Galaxy S4 Zoom looks like my shoe, now the s4 no longer holds the record for the world's ugliest phone.

75. TheBitterrTruth unregistered

No.. There is still a war between S4 active and Galaxy Zoom.

No war, easy victory for Galaxy S4 Zoom.

Now that's the true camera phone, take note Nokia

what will they take note? the farking ugliness? or the sumo-wrestler-like bulkiness?

maybe from your viewpoint but for example , i prefer to take very high quality pics to have optical zoom with good or normal quality (i think because of image sensor size s4 zoom can't take relatively noiseless or high quality pics )

Yeah right. The EOS will take better pics than this. The 808 kicked the galaxy camera's butt and the EOS wil too.

24. wendygarett unregistered

Yeah right, the gs4 has already owned every lumia gimmick low light series, and this will does the same as well

The iPhone 5 owned the lumia 920 on low light the next iPhone is probably gonna beat the 925 too

And where did you get that?

64. vandroid

A video comparison and even though the iPhone did better the lumia was ranked higher and besides all these people thumbing me down are doing so just because of pv which I'd all Nokia has, no top of the line graphics no 1080p screen lack of apps phone cameras really aren't everything

You are the true definition of an idiot. I don't like Nokia myself and you would never catch me making such an idiotic comment like that.
