The last thing you want to hear when you’ve just invested £500 and/or two years in the latest and greatest smartphone is that there’s a cheeky enhanced variant on the cards.
That’s exactly the deal with the Samsung Galaxy S4, which is already tipped to be joined by a 16MP ‘Zoom’ model.
That’s the word according to anonymous sources of SamMobile, with whispers suggesting some sort of Samsung Galaxy S4/Samsung Galaxy Camera hybrid (the latter having a 16MP shooter).
In addition to the 16MP rear camera, Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom specs are said to include a 4.3in qHD Super AMOLED display, 8GB internal storage (with microSD welcoming up to 64GB), Android Jelly Bean, and of course Samsung’s Touch Wiz Nature UX interface.
The Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom’s processor is “likely to be dual-core or quad-core”, though exact CPU and RAM details have yet to be finalised.
Finally, the Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom’s launch is tipped for “before the summer” (better hurry up then), with the release following in June or July.
We’re potentially about to experience the battle of the smartphone cameras, with Nokia expected to launch the 41MP EOS next week.
