Galaxy S4 Zoom to feature 16MP camera with 10x optical zoom?

32

Samsung is working on a new Galaxy device – the Galaxy S4 Zoom. It can be described as a Galaxy S4 Mini with a 16MP camera and actual 10x optical zoom lens. This means the S4 Zoom walks in the shoes of the Galaxy Camera which also features a 16MP sensor, 21x optical zoom, but obviously has less smart-capabilities and is significantly bulkier.

The S4 Zoom will feature a 4.3-inch qHD SAMOLED display, 8GB storage and SD slot, Bluetooth and Wi-Fi. The most interesting part is how did Samsung handle the device’s size. Could they retain a profile in the margins of ~10mm and introduce an actual camera lens at the same time? The Galaxy Camera’s thickness comes at around 20mm.

We expect an announcement in the beginning of June.
