Digital photography has come a long way in the last ten years. The biggest downfall with digital photography on mobile phones is that if you zoom in, they pictures starts to pixelate and lose quality. This is where the Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom fixes the problem by having an 10x optical zoom on the back of the phone.The rest of the phone is identical to Samsung’s flagship device, the S4. Sporting a dual core 1.5Ghz processor, 1.5 Gb ram and 8Gb of Memory (with room for an additional 64Gb through Micro SD card), the S4 Zoom bridges the gap between handheld camera and phone. The major downside, of course, being the size of the lens on the back of the device.
The S4 Zoom is available for sale, unlocked, for £467.99, and available to order online from handtec.co.uk, shipping to Europe only. No release date has been announced yet by Samsung, but maybe an announcement will be made tomorrow at Samsung’s press conference in London.
