Samsung officially announced its latest cameraphone running Android and it's called the Galaxy S4 Zoom. It's basically a hybrid between the Galaxy S4 mini and the Galaxy Camera, combining solid smartphone functionality with the versatility of a zoom lens and a proper flash.

The Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom built around a 4.3" Super AMOLED display with a resolution of 960 x 540 pixels and Corning Gorilla Glass 3 for protection. Under the hood the smartphone sports a 1.5GHz dual-core processor and 1.5GB of RAM. The hybrid has a footprint similar to the Galaxy S4 mini, but is notably thicker at 125.5x63.5x15.4 mm.
It's also notably heavier at 208g, but that was to be expected given the much larger camera module and the proper grip.

The key selling point of the Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom though, is its camera, which has 16MP sensor, a 10x zoom and a xenon flash. It's capable of 10x optical zoom, which is less than the 21x zoom of the Galaxy Camera, but has nicely sounding 24mm wide lens, which we believe is more important.

The Galaxy S4 Zoom is capable of 1080p video recording @ 30fps and (720p@60fps) and on paper sounds to be a promising snapper. The smartphone runs Android 4.2.2 with Samsung's TouchWiz coating on top.

The battery has 2330mAh, so it should be able to take you through a day of smartphone usage and calls even if you do more than the occasional photo.
Since we had the chance to play with the Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom, we bring you a few live photos of the device.

The internal memory is 8GB, expandable by up to 64GB via the hot-swappable microSD card slot. Connectivity options include Wi-Fi a/b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.0 LE and A-GPS. The Samsung S4 Zoom will be able to make phone calls and supports 3G with HSPA and even LTE connectivity.

That is hideous and I bet the new Nokia will have take better images too. Yes you would look like a prat talking on that, it's one of those 'hands-free kit only' phones.

I dont't know what will be more interesting about this... The hate it will generate from people who dislike Samsung or how it will do against the Nokia EOS and normal GS4, either way, it's going to be one hell of a thing to watch

The old W880 camera phone from South Korea looks way better, but it's good that Samsung knows how important optical zoom is if a Smartphones are supposed to replace compact cameras

Oh dear, the idea is great, I mean how long have we all said that we want a camera phone with optical zoom but it looks
Mind you if this is the start of Sammy designing specific camera phones then it can only be a good thing, pushing technology and getting it smaller in future designs.

They should maintain the flash guide number from the Galaxy Camera, it's the most powerful Smartphone flash the market has seen yet, and it'll be a shame for Samsung if they will reduce the power output just to make the S4 Zoom thinner
