Unannounced Samsung Galaxy S5 Zoom (SM-C115) visits the FCC

Unannounced Samsung Galaxy S5 Zoom (SM-C115) visits the FCC
The FCC today approved a new Samsung smartphone that goes by the model number SM-C115. According to previous reports, this is none other than the unannounced Galaxy S5 Zoom.

The FCC confirms that the SM-C115 features NFC and LTE connectivity, although it only mentions LTE band 2 and LTE band 5 - which aren’t widely used in the US. The diagram of the SM-C115 that showed up at the FCC matches a previously leaked image which allegedly showed the back of the Galaxy S5 Zoom.

Like the Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom from last year, the S5 Zoom should have a powerful camera on the back: 20.2MP with 10x optical zoom, optical image stabilization, and Xenon Flash. The rest of its features will not be on par with the features offered by the regular Galaxy S5, reportedly including: a 4.8-inch Super AMOLED display with 720 x 1280 pixels, Samsung’s new Exynos 5 Hexa processor, 2GB of RAM, and microSD card support. The S5 Zoom should run Android 4.4 KitKat at launch.

Unfortunately, we don’t know when the S5 Zoom will be announced. Last year, Samsung revealed the S4 Zoom three months after announcing the Galaxy S4. Will the company also wait that long before introducing the S5 Zoom? Let's hope we'll find out soon.

this is interesting.. in fact my sister might be getting this one .. as the S4 zoom was huge and only had a 4.3 screen .. but this one has an acceptable 4.8 screen and seems compact.. this is an awesome device

no one cares about 1020.. sadly.. you bought a nokia and now wanna troll every article to try and prove to yourself your terrible decision. please tell me about how nokia can't even breathe it's being sold now. and please tell me about the smiles on people's faces when they hear the name nokia. and hey go ask a young person: "hey dude :D want aaa NOKIAAA :D?" his reaction might be the one to make you throw up... seeing where nokia was and where it is now after series of failures.. and now it's dying to sell that more than 70$ of it's shares comes from 2 low end phones 520 and 630. hard life eh?
