It’s a Camera! It’s a Phone! Forums Added for the Galaxy S 4 Zoom

With Samsung’s affinity towards crossover devices such as the Galaxy Note series, it’s no wonder that we’d soon see something relatively similar to the popular Galaxy Camera, but with a phone built in. Despite the device’s name, it differs substantially from the previously released Galaxy S 4 flagship.

Unlike the Galaxy Camera, which is quite similar in specifications to the Galaxy S III, the Galaxy S 4 Zoom differs significantly from the Galaxy S 4. It features a qHD 4.3″ Super AMOLED panel backed by a 1.7 GHz dual-core Pega-Dual +XMM6262 SoC and 1.5 GB of RAM. It also features 8 GB of internal storage and LTE connectivity in certain markets.

The Galaxy S 4 Zoom’s camera subsystem packs a large 16 MP backside-illuminated CMOS sensor measuring in at 1/2.33″, backed by a 10x optical zoom lens. Needless to say, if you want high quality images from your camera phone, the Galaxy S 4 Zoom is likely the phone to get.

Is a 15.25 mm phone too thick in 2013? Does the excellent camera make up for the added girth? Let us know if this device makes the right compromises and if it has earned its way into your pocket. And while you’re at it, don’t forget to head over to the newly created forums to get started.
