Rumours from Samsung watch website sammobile are that a new device has just rolled off the production line from Samsung. We’ve got early details on the Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom with a decent list of extras, starting off with a Super AMOLED capacitive touchscreen-type panel, measuring 4.3 inches with 540 x 960 pixels resolution and a decent cache of 1 GB of RAM.
Other major features include as-yet-unknown dual-core SoC chip delivering up to 1.6GHz of processing horsepower, while we’re also awaiting details on the graphics processor core that handles the 4.3-inch display.
On-board flash provides up to 8 GB worth of storage to play with while you’ve got plenty of external storage, thanks to microSD, up to 64 GB to store more files. You’ll find Android 4.2.2 (Jelly Bean) lurking inside to run on the device. And for power, the device includes a 1900mAh Li-Ion-type battery but unfortunately, no talk or standby times were available at time of publishing.
In addition, Bluetooth v4.0 with A2DP covers wireless personal communications and you can use any of the 802.11 a/b/g/n Wi-Fi standards available on-board. There’s basic 2G coverage on networks supporting the 850 / 900 / 1800 / 1900 MHz bands while 3G is covered by the standard HSDPA bands.
The device delivers high-quality photos, thanks to its 16 MP (autofocus pixels) with LED flash image sensor on the back and you get a simpler 1.9 MP camera on the front. The device is also capable of capturing video at up to 1080p@30fps. Rumours are that back-facing sensor will incorporate a 10X-optical zoom lens.
Details on the Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom’s dimensions and weight are yet to be released and the rumour is Samsung is expected to announce this new model on June 20.
