Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom Leaks Out

June 7, 2013 - Written By Alexander Maxham

You’ve probably heard that Samsung is hosting an event in London on June 20th. Where they are expected to announce some Android and Windows Phone devices. We expected them to announce the Galaxy S4 Mini and Galaxy S4 Active at that event, but those have already been announced. We’ve been hearing about the Galaxy S4 Zoom for quite a while now and even have some specs like:

  • 4.3-inch qHD sAMOLED display
  • 1.6GHz dual-core processor
  • 16MP camera with optical zoom
  • 8GB of storage with a microSD card slot
  • Bluetooth 4.0 LE, Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n, and A-GPS

The Galaxy S4 Zoom is basically the love child of the Galaxy S4 and Galaxy Camera. As you can see there’s the power, volume rocker and shutter buttons all on the right side, with the huge 16MP sensor on the back. It’s 4.3-inches so it’s rather small compared to the Galaxy S4. But you can make calls with it, no matter how awkward it’ll be.

Sammobile hasn’t gotten their hands on an exclusive leak of the Galaxy S4 Zoom, which you saw up above. It looks rather odd in my opinion. I can’t imagine using it to take phone calls and hold up to my ear. But on the other hand, how many people actually make or receive phone calls? It’s still a rather interesting device, and will definitely dethrone the iPhone as being the best camera on a smartphone.

How many of you are interested in the Galaxy S4 Zoom? I’m somewhat interested. I’d love to have that kind of camera on my phone, but I don’t know that I’d be willing to go to a 4.3-inch qHD display with a dual-core processor. Would you? Let us know in the comments down below.
