Introducing the Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom with a 16MP Camera and 10x Optical Zoom

Introducing the Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom with a 16MP Camera and 10x Optical Zoom

  Rumors about the Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom were flying rampant since the last few months with many people wondering as to exactly what to expect from this new device. That shouldn’t be hard to assess now as Samsung have confirmed the launch of the device sometime during Q3, 2013. The Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom is the follow up to Samsung’s GALAXY Camera which debuted last year and literally took the world by storm with its amazing features. The one thing that was missing from that device was its overall ability to be used as an actual cell phone to make calls since there was no designated SIM card option. Now here is where the Galaxy S4 Zoom comes into play. The Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom is the company’s first camera smartphone that has a 16 megapixel 10x optical zoom sensor implanted in the back alongside a nice Xenon flash.   As compared to other devices, the camera sensor found at the back of the S4 Zoom is not your ordinary camera lens capable of taking high quality snapshots. It has a host of other features as well. One such unique feature is Zoom Ring, a feature that allows you to automatically activate the camera, take a photo, and send it to whoever you’re talking to on a call as an MMS message. You’ll also be using the Zoom Ring to open the camera from within any app or to adjust the composition of a shot without the need of pressing the W/L buttons in order to get it where you want.   Photo Suggest is another cool feature that comes bundled with the Galaxy S4 Zoom. It’s just a simple tool that will show you pictures that your fellow photographers have taken in a certain location. Other features include the Smart Mode, which is almost identical to the one found in the original Galaxy S4. Smart Mode and Smart Mode Suggest are your typical automatic camera setting features that’ll let you detail the type of scene you want and will automatically adjust settings to help you achieve that look or goal.         Last but certainly not the least is the Story Album feature that let’s you organize your photos in a systematic way (much like we see in our default galleries). Pictures once saved in the album can easily be edited and modified on the go. Overall the Galaxy S4 Zoom is a decent looking device and even though it doesn’t pack a huge punch when it comes to the hardware as compared to its elder brother the Galaxy S4, it manages to make a name for itself in its own unique way. For all those...

Samsung to Launch a 16MP Camera Phone – The Galaxy S4 Zoom [Rumors]

Samsung to Launch a 16MP Camera Phone – The Galaxy S4 Zoom [Rumors]

The Samsung GALAXY Camera was without any doubt a revolution in its own kind which paved a new path for OEM’s to come up with similar devices in the future. Even though everything about the Galaxy Camera makes you love it each time you hold it in your hands, there was one small feature which seemed to be nagging a few user’s and that is for the camera to be actually used as a phone. The Galaxy Camera which gives a full fledged Android Jelly Bean experience on its 4.8″ Super Amoled HD screen and also comes with a 16MP lens which supports upto 21x Optical Zooming lacked a SIM slot hence hindering the device to be actually used as a phone. Well things are about to change now ! Apparently we have heard strong rumors from our friends at SamMobile who are suggesting that the Korean Tech giants are (rumored) to be on the verge of launching a brand new variant to its Galaxy Camera genre called the “Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom” also codenamed the “SM-C1010”     The upcoming device would also be having a similar 16MP lens like its predecessor but the biggest let down is the screen size which has been reduced from 4.8 inches to a 4.3-inch qHD Super AMOLED display. Other noteworthy features include 8GB of internal storage with an expandable microSD card slot upto 64GB, Bluetooth, WiFi, GPS, Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean and of-course Samsung’s own Touch Wiz Nature UX interface. Details about the RAM and Processor have not been disclosed as yet so now what needs to be seen here is the fact that whether Samsung would yet again go with a heavy punch just as it has done with the recently launched Galaxy S4 or would it opt for a lighter hand ? We’ll soon find out when the device gets launched sometime in June or July most notable in two color variants, black and white. We’ll be doing an in-depth review of the device once it gets officially...

The GALAXY Camera also offers a selection of different scene modes to help users define the appropriate settings for a particular scenario, whether they want to capture flowing waterfalls, an action-packed sports event, and more. The powerful device also integrates a new Photo Wizard tool, featuring a comprehensive set of 35 editing features, designed to take advantage of the camera’s high-resolution touchscreen and make powerful enhancements on-the-go. Additionally, the Smart Content Manager offers innovative organizational tools for photos, with options to quickly and easily create folders and tags or suggest which photos can be deleted if they don’t come out the way the user intended. Lastly, Samsung’s Paper Artist app allows users to stylize and edit their photos with options to create new images that appear to be sketch-drawings or watercolor paintings. Here’s a sneak peak of what the GALAXY Camera actually has to offer when it comes to taking high quality images with and without using the 21x optical zoom. ENJOY !!

Samsung Galaxy S4 to get a 13MP Camera – [Rumor]

Samsung Galaxy S4 to get a 13MP Camera – [Rumor]

  Since a last few days, there have been rumors flying around about the possible launch of the fourth installment in Samsung’s impressive line of Galaxy S series, the Galaxy S4 sometime in February or March of the upcoming year. We are still not sure as to how far these rumors are actually true but what we do know for a fact and this might be a very strong indication of what me might see in the upcoming months. Apparently, the device would come fixed with a 13 MP camera sensor which is a big jump from Samsung’s current 8 MP sensors that have been present in both the second and third generation of these amazing (and powerful) devices. We got our hands on a few leaked documents released by Samsung which gives us just a tiny preview as to exactly what we should expect to get in Samsung’s next flagship phone of 2013.     Samsung have a great reputation when it comes to smartphone camera’s and this new adaptation would hopefully follow in the similar footsteps of its predecessors. The Galaxy S4 promises to capture images at a 4208 x 3120 pixel resolution which will require more processing power and more RAM too which means that we might be anticipating at least 2-3 MB of RAM for an overall smoother experience. Till now, these are just a bunch of rumors and I’m pretty sure we’ll be getting to hear a lot of them as we edge closer and closer towards  the end of 2012 and more towards the beginning of 2013 which is shaping up to be another exciting year for gadgets and other cool new devices. Just the thought of it puts a huge smirk on our face doesn’t it ?...
