The Samsung Galaxy S4 has been spawning a ton of devices these days and it’s no surprise that we will be soon getting another one; the Galaxy S4 Zoom. Although the Galaxy S4 Zoom was announced a few weeks ago at the Samsung Premiere event which was held in London, there were no prices or release dates announced.
It seems that a U.K seller has already listed the device for pre order. The retailer Clove has started taking pre orders for the Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom which will be shipping on 8th of July. The price is listed as £369 which is around $561 before tax. The price is a bit expensive for our taste; we would have paid more if the specs were actually on par with the regular flagship Samsung Galaxy S4. However you will be getting a great performing camera in any smartphone EVER.
There is a 4.3 inch qHD (960 x 540 pixels) Super AMOLED screen with a pixel density of 256 ppi. There will be a 1.5 GHz dual core processor tucked inside the Galaxy S4 Zoom along with 1.5 GB of RAM. The smartphone will run on Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean with the usual Samsung’s own skin TouchWiz on top. The smartphone will boast 8 GB of internal memory which can be expanded up to 64 GB via microSD card slot. The smartphone has a 2330 mAh battery which will be enough to tide you through a day.
The camera is the major feature of the smartphone and the reason behind its 15.4 mm thickness. The Galaxy S4 Zoom has a 16 MP sensor with 10x Optical Zoom along with Xenon Flash. The smartphone also has 1.9 MP camera on the front of the device. We will be keen to take the Galaxy S4 Zoom out for a spin once the device becomes available. Until then we will remain skeptical.
