Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom spotted
We’ve been seeing a lot of rumours and leaked pictures of the camera-centric Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom. Thanks to Techtastic, we now have an idea of what the phone will look like in the real world. Check out the leaked pictures of the S4 Zoom.
The Galaxy S4 Zoom looks like it had quite a bit of bulk
The unique thing about the S4 Zoom is that it seems to be Samsung’s first attempt at a camera-centric Android smartphone. It will be using a 16 megapixel camera sensor, similar to the one on the Galaxy Camera, but whether or not the actual sensor itself will be different is yet to be seen.
Details about the smartphone have been making the rounds. Just last month, Dutch site techtastic.nl managed to get their hands on a picture that they believed was taken with the camera on the Galaxy S4 Zoom smartphone. The photo, titled Morning View, was taken by Shahriar Hossain, who incidentally works with Samsung. About the photograph, the report says that it looks like it has been processed by Google’s Snapseed.
The phone looks like the result of putting an S4 Mini and a Galaxy Camera in a blender
The S4 Zoom will have a 4.3-inch Super AMOLED screen with a qHD resolution, which is considerably smaller than the 5-inch full HD screen on the S4. The S4 Zoom is said to have 8GB of internal storage and a microSD slot that can be used to expand memory up to 64GB.
Connectivity options include Bluetooth 4.0 LE, Wi-Fi and A-GPS. It will run on Android Jelly Bean with a layer of Samsung’s own TouchWiz Nature UX on top. The processor and RAM haven’t yet been decided on, but it will be a safe bet to assume that it will have at least 1GB of RAM and either a dual-core or a quad-core processor.
Let’s hope the camera’s good[source:tech2]
