Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom visits the FCC?

Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom visits the FCC?
The FCC received a visit from the Samsung SM-C101 which looks to be the Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom. This is the Samsung Galaxy S4 variant that focuses (groan) on the camera. The rear-facing shooter is expected to feature a 16MP sensor with a 10X optical sensor and the FCC says that the device offers quad-band GSM and HSPA+ bands that match AT&T's frequencies

The device also offers NFC, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity although there is no mention of LTE anywhere. That would tend to indicate that the SM-C101 might not be a version of the Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom headed for the states. The picture will become clearer at the Samsung Premiere event on June 20th when the 'Zoom' gets unveiled along with the Samsung Galaxy S4 mini and the Samsung Galaxy S4 Active. Speaking of AT&T and the rugged water and dust resistant version of the Android flagship model, earlier on Friday, we showed you a leaked photograph of the device wearing AT&T branding.

This one might beat a Nokia this time - only in brick competition, not the camera.

In don't think even a 8 ultrapixel camera would compete with these 16-41 megapixel monsters!

Wait a sec, if this has the same specs as the S4 but has a bigger camera, doesn't it make this the flagship? But i'm sure tie nokia Eos will rape this.

Its not really about megapixels though is it....

It's not the megapixels, it's what you do with the megapixels. In this case, PureView superpixels, lossless digital zoom and better low light images. Then again, yes. It IS all about the megapixels. 41 million pixels in a handheld device, in this case, a mobile smart cameraphone. :-)

face it, the 41 megapixel sensor on the 808 proved its not about the megapixel but you need the megapixel to oversample and for the loseless zoom i cant see samsung been any competition there just tapping into all the markets with unispired recycled devices, this will be a galaxy camera with a phone attached basically........atleast HTC ventured out there with something different. sony look to be coming back to there glory days so samsung should buck up and stop thinking they can half ass it and saturate the market what will be funny is watching all the sammy fanboys change there tune on thicker phones when this comes out

Let me guess... This will be frisbee like and have hyper glaze... What I don't get is why it won't have an equal processor to the active and the S4.. If its going to have a great camera
