Description

Samsung just outed the rumored Galaxy S4 Zoom cameraphone, and it is every bit as resemblant to the Galaxy Camera concept as on the leaked pictures before. The mian differences are that it is more compact, achieved by limiting the zoom level to 10x instead of the 21x on Samsung's Android camera, and it has voice calling functions, not only data connectivity. At the front it resembles a Galaxy S4 Mini, with the same 4.3" 540x960 pixels Super AMOLED display, but is powered by a 1.5 GHz dual-core Exynos 4212 processor, aided by 1.5 GB of RAM, 8 GB of internal storage plus a microSD slot for expansion, and, of course, that sweet 16 MP camera with 10x optical zoom on the back and optical image stabilization. Android 4.2 is running the show, and the phone packs a 2330 mAh battery to power it all up. The body is officially 15.4mm thick, yet in the camera lens part, which has a zoom ring, that goes to 25mm, and the typical grip bulge is here as well, so it is more of a compact camera with phone functions than anything else. Still, it is the first phone with 10x optical zoom, Xenon flash and all the bells and whistles of manual control over your photos and videos, like aperture, exposure and white balance settings, as well as no less than 26 preset shooting modes, including exotics like Baby, Golf and Smart Suggest, where the camera app tells you which shooting modes are suitable for the current scene.
