Showing that Samsung has a leak somewhere, the Korean giant announced what we all knew was coming – the Galaxy S4 Zoom with a built-in 10X-optical zoom lens-based camera.
Amongst its features, it includes a dual-core (market dependent) chip inside ticking over at up to 1.5GHz clock speed and up to 1.5GB of memory on-board.
Further, it comes with a Super AMOLED panel, measuring 4.3-inch inches and housing 960×540 resolution, also the GPU core is still unknown at this stage.
There’s on-board storage through a 8GB (5GB user accessible) cache of built-in flash memory while there’s MicroSD, up to 64GB, to provide bulk space outside of the device. It features Android 4.2 (Jelly Bean) operating system to run your apps and keep things busy. And for power, you’ll find the on-board 2330mAh Lithium-ion battery, but we’re still waiting on standby and talk time data from Samsung.
In addition, personal communications is taken care of by Bluetooth 4.0 and 5GHz 802.11a/b/g/n-standard Wi-Fi will connect you to your home or office network. There’s basic 2G coverage on networks supporting the 850 / 900 / 1800 / 1900MHz bands while 3G is covered by 850 / 900 / 1900 / 2100MHz bands.
You can capture still images via the 16MP / 10X-optical zoom camera on the back of the device or simply use the front-facing 1.9MP camera for personal shots. The device doubles as a videocam with support for up to 1080p@30fps.
The Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom measures 125.5 x 63.5 x 15.4mm and has a comfortable weight at 208g. Samsung announced this new model back in June 2013.
