Samsung’s first camera phone: The Galaxy S4 Zoom


what is next samsung

Samsung is already readying its first fully fledged camera phone according to the latest rumor, the Galaxy S4 Zoom is said to be the first Samsung smartphone to sport a 16Mp shooter onboard!

Inside out the handset will reportedly pack rather midrange specifications judging by the mention of a 4.3 inch qHD SAMOLED display and the including of only 8GB of storage. Aside that the device will also include Bluetooth 4.0 LE, Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n and A-GPS and a MicroSD slot accepting up to 64GB. On the software the latest flavor of Android Jelly Bean (4.2.2) runs the show along with Samsung’s own ‘S-Apps’ & services.

The internals of the camera phone aren’t yet finalized yet but we expect either a quad or octa core ticking under the hood. It’ll be logical to assume that the SoC might well be something around the Exynos 5 Octa/Exynos 5210.

Samsung’s entry into the camera phone industry might send shock waves throughout the Android ecosystem, once again triggering a new type of smartphone never seen in the Android world before, let’s not forget the Galaxy Note which started a whole ‘phablet’ revolution despite the critics from tech pundits.

The Galaxy S4 Zoom will make its way into stores around June or July 2013 in black and white color variants.
