If you weren’t already excited for Samsung’s upcoming smartphone launches, information leaked ahead of the company’s June 20 press conference might just pique your interest.
High-Tech.Mail.Ru, a Russian technology website, reportedly obtained the specifications of both the highly anticipated ruggedized Galaxy S4 spin-off – the Galaxy S4 Active – and the Galaxy S4 Zoom, which allegedly appears externally similar to Samsung’s incoming S4 Mini.
The Galaxy S4 Active is, as has been rumored, a water- and dust- resistant version of the Galaxy S4. It has a 5-inch Super AMOLED Full HD display and the following internals:
Unfortunately, we don’t have any word on the Samsung S4 Active camera’s megapixel count. The latest rumors point towards a slight downgrade from the S4’s 13-megapixel camera, but we haven’t heard any more on that front since last week.
The Galaxy S4 Zoom’s specs are typical of a mid-range Android device. The display is of the Super AMOLED variant, 4.3-inch in size and 540 x 960 pixels. Here’s what’s inside:
All in all, nothing too surprising. Of note is the Galaxy S4 Zoom’s 16-megapixel camera with 10x optical zoom, specs had already been tentatively confirmed. It would appear that the S4 Zoom’s focus, so to speak, will definitely be on picture-taking. Hopefully Samsung learned from the shortcomings of the Galaxy Camera, and decided to include a shooter of better quality.

It is qHD. My bad. Will fix.
Hmmm…a water-proof, dust-proof S4. Be slightly smaller than my Note II, way more powerful, AND…will have probably a workout shoulder band it can fit into (or maybe it comes with one?).
Just have to wait and see.
Yea tempting to me also minus the arm band get a shuffle for that trust me. Deal breaker is the physical buttons and screen size conoaring to nite 3.
Does anybody know what usb cable that is?
it is an alarm cable
physical buttons again> ? :S
So…lets put an old qHD screen on a device that has a 16mp camera….????
That is what we call an instant failure. Sammy might as well call this a Facebook phone. It will be gone as quick I imagine…
ppl hoped for 720p nd u crying for qhd

Galaxy Zoom sounds very interesting with that camera and zoom, I wonder how that’s going to compare to the S4 camera (which apparently is really great anyway!) – http://versusio.com/en/samsung-galaxy-s4-zoom-vs-samsung-galaxy-s4
