Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom 16MP camera phone, S4 Activ and S4 mini to be announced in May?

Samsung is expected to unveil the Galaxy S4 Zoom (SM-C1010) with a 16-megapixel camera at the end of this month, according to a report from Sammobile. This would be the company’s first camera phone. Samsung already launched the Galaxy Camera with a 17 Megapixel sensor that can capture images at 16.3 Megapixel resolution. The S4 Zoom would hav a similar sensor, 4.3-inch qHD SAMOLED display, instead of a 4.8-inch 720p Super Clear Touch Display and runs on Android Jelly Bean OS with Samsung’s own Touchwiz interface with Nature UX. It would have  8 GB of memory, MicroSD up to 64 GB, Bluetooth 4.0 LE, Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n and  A-GPS.

It might come with a dual-core or quad-core processor. Sadly no details about the sensor size, RAM or the battery yet. Sony is also rumored to launch a CyberShot camera phone codenamed Honami with a 1/1.6″ sensor, larger that than 1.23″ sensor in the Galaxy Camera.

The Galaxy S4 Zoom would come in Black and White colors and is expected to go on sale in June or July. Sammobile also says the the rumored Galaxy S4 Activ and the Galaxy S4 mini that was confirmed recently would be announced along with the S4 Zoom later this month. So three S4 variants are expected to be announced in May 2013.

Samsung doesn’t stop launching new devices. Specifications of the Galaxy Tab 8.0, Galaxy Tab DUOS 7.0, Samsung Galaxy Tab 11 and the Nexus 11 tablet surfaced recently, which are in their 2013 roadmap.
