Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom uses a optical zoom of 10 times!

This week SamMobile leaked out the Galaxy S4 Zoom. The Galaxy S4 Zoom is Samsung’s first camera phone. The Galaxy S4 Zoom is expected to have a 4.3” qHD AMOLED display and a 16 megapixel camera sensor with optical zoom. (Same as the Galaxy Camera) According to the Galaxy S4 Zoom will have an optical zoom of 10 times! This is a lot better than the Nokia 808 PureView with only an optical zoom of 3 times. Samsung downgraded the optical zoom function of the Galaxy S4 Zoom because of the thickness of the device itself. The phone itself looks like the Galaxy S4 mini.

Samsung just received their bluetooth certification on the Galaxy S4 Zoom too.

We expect Samsung to announce the Galaxy S4 Zoom this month. The device must be available before the summer months.

So what do you think do we need camera phones?

Galaxy S4 ‘ACTIV’ – Water/ Dust resistant version of the standard GS4 (don’t know if it will use the Exynos 5 Octa Soc). 5. Galaxy… Read more »


Would be great and another contender to replace my galaxy SII. Thinking about Note 3, S4 or keeping my SII and now also this one. But about 5 years ago I already had a Samsung camera phone with optical zoom, so this isn’t the first one. I believe it was a G810? The zoom mechanism was sturdy enough to survive at least three years of use.


What i need are firmware updates that will fix these issues im facing with my galaxy s4 like overheating, screen smearing, lags, etc and not more phones. 😀 Thanks.
