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.

We recently did an in-depth review of the Asus Zenfone 2 but one of the things people may not be aware of is that ASUS has actually created a line of accessories to compliment the ZenFone, or any other Android device. The Lolliflash is a Lollipop-shaped external flash and the ZenPower is a thin 10,000mAh external battery. In today's video, Jordan shows off the Lolliflash and the ZenPower Accessories. Additionally, ASUS and XDA have teamed up to give away 5...
