Just so I can get the disclaimer out of the way, I received the Galaxy S4 Zoom press release this morning, but the picture is from some other source, so it isn’t really official.
The Galaxy S4 Zoom is something that I thought I would see eventually, and it is a smartphone that really can be used as a camera. Yes, practically every smartphone has a camera these days, but this one has a 10x Optical Zoom, 16 Megapixel CMOS Sensor, OIS, and Xenon Flash.
I’m not certain how this works, but there is a Zoom Ring, a “simple and intuitive way to access the Galaxy S4 Zoom’s key feature”. You can share a photo while on the phone, and there are also features like Quick Launch and Shortcut features.
Well, there are also features known as Photo Suggest and Smart Mode for your settings. Then there is Story Album, just like what is on Galaxy S4. I’ll be reviewing that one next week.
