The Galaxy S4 Zoom is expected to come to the U.S. during the third quarter of this year

Samsung officially announced the Galaxy S4 Zoom, which is the first smartphone to feature a 10x optical zoom. 

The Galaxy S4 Zoom combines a full-featured Android Jelly Bean 4.2.2 Galaxy smartphone with a 16 MP point-and-shoot camera, which offers a 10x optical zoom.



The camera also features a Xenon flash, optical image stabilization and a "Zoom Ring." This ring encircles the camera, and when turned, it allows for in-call photo sharing -- even when on a call. Or, it will activate the Quick Launch and Shortcut features for direct access to other camera modes. 

Users can also use software like Photo Suggest, which shows pictures taken by others nearby; Story Album, which allows you to arrange all of your images and videos into one timeline, and Smart Mode, which lets you choose from many pre-set modes that the camera will automatically adjust to.

As for the smartphone itself, it features a 4.3-inch qHD display, 1.5GB RAM, 1.5GHz dual-core CPU, 8GB of internal storage that's expandable via the microSD slot and a 1.9 MP front-facing camera.



The Zoom isn't the only new member of the Galaxy S4 family. Late last month, Samsung unveiled the Galaxy S4 Mini, which is a smaller version of the Galaxy S4. It's light at 107 grams, and offers a 4.3-inch qHD AMOLED display, a 1.7 GHz dual-core processor, Android 4.2.2, integrated Wi-Fi, GPS, Bluetooth, NFC technology, 8 GB of internal storage, and 1.5 GB of RAM.

The Galaxy S4 Zoom is expected to come to the U.S. during the third quarter of this year.

Better off with the Lumia EOS

I really don't understand this device. I can't imagine carrying that bulky thing in my pocket every day. 95% of people wouldn't walk around with a point to shoot camera in their pocket unless they are on vacation, or sight seeing. I don't know about the rest of you, but I don't have enough money laying around to have a special use camera phone I only carry with me on vacation. If you absolutely need a good camera on your phone, the lumia EOS seems like the better option. It does have a bit of a hump for the camera, but nothing like this thing.
