South Korean tech giant Samsung might be releasing its first camera phone that goes by the name Galaxy S4 Zoom. Leaked details point that the handset (with alleged model number SM-C1010 or SM-C101) will make its way to the smartphone market anytime soon.
There are rumors going around that this is the sequel to the Samsung Galaxy Camera released last year. The camera is powered by Android OS with huge 4.8-inch touchscreen display and 21x zoom feature. The camera had flaws which Sammy probably wants to rectify with the S4 Zoom.
Online information confirms that the Galaxy S4 Zoom will be having a 4.3-inch touchscreen panel with qHD AMOLED display. It will be powered by the latest Android Jelly Bean OS and Samsung’s own TouchWiz Nature UX interface along with dual-core/quad-core processor, 8GB internal storage, microSD support up to 64GB, Bluetooth 4.0, WiFi and built-in A-GPS. Of course, what sets it apart from other phone models is its powerful 16 megapixel camera with 10x zoom (previously said to be 21x). It will be offered in either black or white colors.
More details will be divulged on the forthcoming Galaxy Camera 2 as we near its release date around June or July of this year. No price details were mentioned but considering its specs, there’s a possibility that Samsung will offer this handset at an affordable price – probably less than its Galaxy S IV flagship. Stay tuned.
