Galaxy S4 Zoom images show the product in the wild, seem to confirm previous leak

    Samsung Galaxy Camera

    The original Galaxy Camera

    The Galaxy S4 Zoom image leak avalanche continues with more pictures of the device hitting the web shortly after the purported press image of the camera phone has been published.

    The handset is still not official, so the new pictures can’t be confirmed at this time, but the camera phone in them looks awfully similar to that press image we saw the other day.

    Just like before, we’ll notice that we’re looking at a smartphone that’s similar to the Galaxy S4 Mini, but there are some differences when looking at the sensor layout and physical button placement – some of the sensors are placed on the left side of the front speaker, while volume keys have been moved to the right side.

    The Galaxy S4 Zoom also resembles the Galaxy Camera when it comes to thickness and camera lens. Moreover, a dedicated camera button is also present.

    TechTastic, which got the images, says the device will be unveiled on June 20, during Samsung’s London-based media event.

    The publication also confirms some of the specs and features of the phone including the 4.3-inch Super AMOLED qHD display, 1.6GHz dual-core processor, 8GB of memory, microSD support, 16-megapixel camera with optical zoom, Bluetooth 4.0, Wi-Fi, GPS, Android 4.2.2 and TouchWiz on top.

    We’ll be back with more details about the handset once we have them.

      This looks absolutely absurd

      That cant compete with the lumia eos in size.

      • Bone

        Cause that one doesn’t have a zoom lens. But that makes more sense, lossless zoom up to 4x.

        • MasterMuffin

          And the size is also 4x :/

      The most important spec is the image sensor size. Because it wasn’t that impressive last time and made it kind of pointless. Megapixels mean very little compared to sensor size.

        Also I think the zoom is a bad idea. Makes it too bulky.

        Yeah, Samsung cameras tend to do very poorly on high iso settings.

        The Galaxy S4 Zoom is a completely other product than the Galaxy Camera.

        • dogulas

          I am talking about the feature of an optical zoom. Not the GS4 Zoom product itself. I’m saying the optical zoom hardware is not worth including because of the huge bulk it adds.

      The galaxy camera looked a lot better. This just looks like Samsung decided to slap a giant lens on the back of an s4

      It would be nice if these were MILC.
      Don’t feel like a photographer today? Just take off your lens and it will half in size.
      Want to take some awesome photos? Hook up nice lenses and start shooting away.

      This thing can’t be more ugly.
