New Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom (SM-C1010) with 16MP camera coming soon?
Apart from launching the 5 inch Galaxy S4 (available in more than 60 markets around the world), it looks like Samsung will introduce at least three other devices that are going to have “Galaxy S4” in their names.
We have already reported about the 4.3 inch Galaxy S4 Mini and the Galaxy S4 Active (which should be rugged and waterproof). And now we’re hearing that a Galaxy S4 Zoom (model number SM-C1010) is also in the making.
According to Sam Mobile, the S4 Zoom will have a 16MP camera – like the Galaxy Camera GC100 introduce last year. Unlike the Galaxy Camera, though, the S4 Zoom comes with phone functionality. Its features should include Android Jelly Bean, a 4.3 inch qHD Super AMOLED display, Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.0, dual-core or quad-core processor, and MicroSD card support. So, basically, this will be an S4 Mini with a beefed up camera. It remains to be seen if the camera has 21X optical zoom, like the unit on the GC100.
The Galaxy S4 Zoom SM-C1010 should go on sale in June or July – hence at about the same time with the S4 Mini and S4 Active. There is no word on how much it will cost, but it’s said it’s going to come in two color versions: black and white. More details soon.
