Samsung Intros Galaxy S4 Zoom with 16MP Camera
Samsung today announced the Galaxy S4 Zoom, a smartphone that looks more like a point-and-shoot camera than a handset. The Zoom features a 16-megapixel CMOS sensor and boasts 10x optical zoom, Xenon flash, and optical image stabilization. The Zoom has new camera software that replaces traditional digital controls called the Zoom Ring, which Samsung says can be used to launch certain camera functions such as sharing a picture while on a phone call. Beyond the camera, the Zoom runs Android 4.2 Jelly Bean and has a 4.3-inch qHD display, dual-core 1.5GHz processor, Wi-Fi, NFC, GPS, Bluetooth, and support for various different LTE bands. The Zoom includes 8GB of internal storage and supports microSD cards up to 64GB. It is powered by a 2,330mAh battery. Pricing and availability were not announced.
