Loads of Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom images Leak online!
What is this monstrosity!
Well apparently it’s the Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom the long rumored Samsung Android handset that doubles up as a Camera and a high powered smartphone. Over the weekend those chaps at Sammobile leaked some press style images of the purposed incoming handset and now it seems that some “out in the wild” images of the Galaxy S4 Zoom have appeared too.
Over the weekend a press image appeared online claiming to depict the much rumoured Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom, and now further photos apparently showing the device in the flesh have surfaced. The team over at TechTastic have released some images showing the unannounced handset in the flesh and they seem to match up to the press images leaked on Saturday.
Earlier today Samsung also officially announced the next Galaxy Ace handset in the form of the Samsung Galaxy Ace 3.
Now from the images you can see that the Zoom will be a bit of a bulky handset as its Camera/Phone mantra is really pushing the boundaries of “Pocket Sized”. The handset is reported to have a 4.3-inch Super AMOLED qHD display, 1.6GHz dual-core processor, Bluetooth 4.0, Wi-Fi and GPS.
But the real star (and the reason it’s called Zoom) is the 16 megapixel camera sensor with optical zoom which will act as a Compact camera with smartphone connectivity and features. It will also have 8GB of internal memory with a micro SD port to expand it up to 64GB. The insides are powered by Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean and they will be augmented by the Touch-Wiz Nature UX interface which has a host of Samsung’s features plus a few extra to help with the camera.
The S4 Zoom… well it’s not the prettiest of smartphones! The image show that the handset is a bit of an ugly duckling with its cross between the Compact Camera and Galaxy S4 design it doesn’t exactly scream sleek and stylish, but with the handset harbouring a optical zoom lens.
For those people who have to have a camera and a smartphone the Zoom may be the answer, but until we see just how good the Cam is on the handset we will try and reserve our judgement on leaked aesthetics alone.
The Zoom may launch on the 20th of June at the Samsung and Galaxy Ativ press event on the 20th of June or if Samsung are setting a trend they may just announce it out of the blue like they have done with the Galaxy S4 Mini, S4 Active and the Ace 3!
