Galaxy S5 Zoom To Be Slimmer With More Hidden Lens

March 24, 2014 - Written By Justin Diaz

Last year there were so many variations of the Galaxy S4 that customers had the choice to buy, that it seemed almost mind boggling. The Galaxy S4 Zoom was one such option which had an enhanced camera for taking much better pictures than the regular Galaxy S4. It looks like we could possibly see a Galaxy S5 Zoom this year as a variation spin-off of the Galaxy S5, which wouldn’t surprise us as Samsung likes to throw out plenty of options for consumers. Some of the rumored specs so far about the device are a 20MP camera sensor, and a 4.3-inch display with a 720p resolution. That’s definitely an improvement over the 4.4-inch display from the Galaxy S4 zoom and it’s 16MP camera sensor.

While the two details above are a good start, we want to know more about the camera optics and some of the specs that would make this worth considering over a different device. According to this new set of leaked of information that was sketched on a piece of paper(we feel like we’re passing notes in class and if caught by Samsung, they’d send us to the principles office), the Galaxys S5 Zoom is to have not only optical image stabilization, but also 10x optical zoom, 2GB of RAM memory, and a slimmer design, which wouldn’t hurt in the slightest as it might be beneficial to have the ability to more easily fit it in your pocket.

We can also see that the Galaxy S5 Zoom is to have a 1.6GHz quad-core processor although it doesn’t seem to mention the manufacturer of the chip, and run on Android 4.4 kit kat out of the box. Last years model of the Zoom had a dual-core processor and only 1.5GB of RAM, so Samsung has definitely made a few enhancements this time around if the Galaxy S5 Zoom comes to light. The lens this time around is also rumored to have a better design, and be tucked or hidden inside the casing to give off a more natural looking smartphone design instead of making the device look more like a camera. If these specs are true, than they turn out to be a little better than what they were though to be just ten days ago. For those of you that are photo enthusiasts and do more pictures with your smartphone than anything else, the Galaxy S5 Zoom might not be too bad of an option, especially if the price is lower than the regular Galaxy S5.
