Samsung Galxy S4 Zoom looks to be more than Rumour


With the Samsung Earl’s Court event only 12 days away for the unveiling of the Galaxy S4 Active and the ATIV, it looks like Samsung are playing games again. This time with the Galaxy S4 Zoom.

SamMobile have a leaked picture of the S4 Zoom. It’s hard to judge from the unflattering angles, but these images depict a device seems to be more camera than phone. The thickish frame, protruding lens obscuring a 16-megapixel sensor, and rounded butt are all design choices that are more reminiscent of point-and-shoots than they are of any standard smartphone. Too bad then that the supposed spec sheet that’s been attached to the S4 Zoom seems wimpy in comparison — that hefty sensor will supposedly be accompanied by a 4.3-inch qHD AMOLED display and a 1.6GHz dual-core processor.


If the S4 Zoom is indeed the real deal, and at this point it just about seems like a lock, Samsung may find that it’s not alone in using smartphones as a platform to show off their camera prowess. Persistent rumors of a Nokia Windows Phone sporting one of the company’s mind-boggling PureView sensors have been floating around for over a year now, and a handful of spurious “leaked” images of one such device (codenamed “EOS “)have been circulating these past days. Hell, just earlier this morning we were treated to what may be the smoking gun — a purported recording of the EOS’ gigantic rear camera pod blinking at us.
