The Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom has officially made an online appearance. The device whose specifications and details have been out since a long time, finally was seen in its press shots.
While SamMobile published a press photograph of the device, TechTastic uploaded a couple of live shots.
According to previous rumours, the Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom will feature a 4.3-inch Super AMOLED display with a resolution of 540x960 pixels. It will be powered by a 1.6GHz dual-core processor and offer 8GB of internal storage expandable via microSD card. The phone's USP will be its 16-megapixel rear camera with 10x optical zoom. The device will also come with a 1.9-megapixel front facing camera. The phone is said to come with Bluetooth 4.0LE, Wi-Fi 802.11a/b/g/n, A-GPS connectivity options and a 1900mAh battery.
It can be seen in the images that the camera based smartphone comes with a dedicated camera button, the power button and the volume rocker on the right. Just like the entire Galaxy S4 family, the Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom is expected to run Android 4.2.2 and Samsung's TouchWiz UI.
The smartphone camera hybrid will be Samsung's first camera-focussed Android smartphone, to go with its Android-based camera Samsung Galaxy Camera. Samsung had recently announced the Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini, a mid-range version of the Galaxy S4. The device has specifications similar to Galaxy S4 Zoom. The South-Korean manufacturer had also announced the Galaxy S4 Active, a rugged water and dust resistant version of the Galaxy S4.
While the rest of the Samsung Galaxy S4 range comprising of the Galaxy S4, Galaxy S4 Mini and Galaxy S4 Active have either been launched or announced, it is only the Galaxy S4 Zoom that is still under the wraps. The device is expected to be launched at the Samsung press event in London on June 20th.
