Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom combines a Samsung camera with a powerful optical zoom and a phone that can connect to the internet over mobile networks.
The Galaxy S4 Zoom, is Samsung's answer to Nokia's high-end camera phone technology (such as Nokia EOS) that includes a 16 megapixel camera and a 10x optical zoom for close ups. It runs on Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean and contains optical stabilization to help photographers with shaky hands in low light. Samsung Mobile head JK Shin said: "As communication continues to become increasingly visual in nature, people wish to capture and share their moments in the highest quality possible, but often do not have the space or inclination to carry a dedicated camera for this purpose".
Other characteristics include Dual-core 1.5 GHz Cortex-A9 CPU, 8GB internal memory plus a microSD memory slot, 1.5GB memory RAM, and a 4.3 inches Super AMOLED display with resolution of 540 x 960 pixels. Galaxy S4 Zoom is powered by a 2,330 mAh battery.
However, this smartphone-camera hybrid is quite thick and rises the question if it will fit tight jeans.
