Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom

Samsung has finally announced the Galaxy S4 zoom, the company’s flagship camera phone. It has a 16-megapixel BSI CMOS sensor with 10x optical zoom, Optical Image Stabilizer (OIS) and Xenon Flash. It has a 4.3 inch (960 x 540 pixels) qHD Super AMOLED display with Corning Gorilla Glass 3 protection, 1.5 GHz dual-core processor (Chip varies based on the market) and runs on Android 4.2 (Jelly Bean). Unlike the Galaxy Camera, you can make calls with this since it has an ear piece. It also comes with LTE support in select markets. This has a Zoom Ring that lets you zoom and offers new features such as In-Call Photo sharing via MMS to the caller with just a twist. It also lets you activate the Quick Launch and Shortcut features. The dials from the Galaxy Camera have been replaced by digital controls.
