Samsung confirms Galaxy S 4 spinoff with 16 megapixel camera, 10x optical zoom


Samsung is on a roll, adding to recent announcements by announcing a tweaked version of the Galaxy S 4. There was talk of a Galaxy S 4 Zoom last month and it seems to have been spot on, right down to the display’s specifications.

The Galaxy S 4 Zoom looks like a Galaxy S 4 handset affixed to the back of a compact digital camera body. It isn’t quite along the lines of Samsung’s Galaxy Camera, being thinner and slightly less impressive in the photography stakes but the handset/camera does pack in a 1.5GHz processor, 4.3 inch qHD sAMOLED 960 x 540 display and 8GB of internal storage (1.5GB of RAM), along with an Android 4.2 Jelly Bean OS.

On the camera front, the Zoom will feature a 16 megapixel sensor when it launches, “with x10 Optical Zoom and enhanced SMART Modes, OIS 24-240mm, F3.1-F6.3″. Samsung has yet to price or date the new Galaxy addition but, like everything else the company has revealed lately, odds are we’ll hear more at their 25 June event.
