The Galaxy S4 Zoom is now official folks. This one is for those you of that feel the camera is the most important aspect of your smartphone. As far as the camera goes, it shoots 16MP photos utilizing 10x optical zoom, an optical image stabilizer, and Xenon flash. The rest of the specs are nothing to brag about, but again the camera is the focal point. It has a 4.3-inch qHD (960 x 540) display, a 1.5GHz dual-core Exynos 4212 processor, 1.5GB of RAM, 8GB of internal storage, microSD slot for expansion, 1.9MP front camera, 2,330mAh battery, and Android 4.2.2. This isn’t going to be the thinnest phone in the world. Because of the camera hardware, it’s 15.4mm thick.
They are touting the new Zoom Ring feature, which lets you access key features such as capturing and sharing a photo via MMS. It can also be used to activate Quick Launch and Shortcut features.
This one will be released overseas first, but the U.S won’t be left out in the cold. Word is that we will see it stateside during the third quarter.
