The unique thing about the S4 Zoom is that it seems to be Samsung's first attempt at a camera-centric Android smartphone. It will be using a 16 megapixel camera sensor, similar to the one on the Galaxy Camera, but whether or not the actual sensor itself will be different is yet to be seen.


Over the weeks, important details about the smartphone have been making their way into news headlines. In one such instance last month, Dutch site reportedly managed to land upon a photograph that they believed was taken with the camera on the Galaxy S4 Zoom smartphone. The photo, titled Morning View, was taken by Shahriar Hossain, who incidentally works with Samsung. About the photograph, the report says that it looks like it has been processed by Google's Snapseed.

The S4 Zoom will have a 4.3-inch Super AMOLED screen with a qHD resolution, which is considerably smaller than the 5-inch full HD screen on the S4. The S4 Zoom is said to have 8GB of internal storage and a microSD slot that can be used to expand memory up to 64GB. Connectivity options include Bluetooth 4.0 LE, Wi-Fi and A-GPS. It will come with Android Jelly bean with Samsung's own TouchWiz Nature UX. The processor and RAM haven't yet been decided on, but it will be a safe bet to assume that it will have at least 1GB of RAM and either a dual-core or a quad-core processor.
