According to Leaked Press Render, Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom Headed to AT&T

Galaxy S4 Zoom

Late last night, a press render of the Galaxy S4 Zoom with AT&T branding hit the web, which means we could be seeing an official announcement from AT&T sometime soon. The S4 Zoom is an interesting device, first unveiled back in June with some mediocre specs for a device that should be a powerhouse. What makes it completely unique is not only its funky design, but its massive 16MP camera complete with 10x optical zoom. It was made with the mobile photographer in mind. 

Beyond just the camera, it features a 4.3″ qHD display, dual-core processor, 1.5GB RAM, 8GB internal storage, 2330mAh battery, and runs Android 4.2. When it comes to specs, it doesn’t match up to any of the other top dogs, but then again, look at it.

No idea yet on pricing or availability, but we should see an announcement from AT&T in the near future.

Picking it up? /s

    I don’t get it..these companies are willing to cater to the small population of mobile photographers who need their phones to take professional pics but are unwilling to give us unlocked boot loaders that cater to what I assume is a much larger population of mobile tinkerers…am i missing something?

    Would look fine if they kept it flat rather than making the bottom part slightly thinner.. lazy ass design and engineering.

    I don’t know about this device, but the Galaxy Camera was disappointing because the camera would take over while using it. For example, when you choose to take a pic, it switches to the camera app, extends the lens, and won’t let you do anything else outside of the camera app while the lens is extended. So to go to a different app, the lens would have to be closed first. Should have been tied to the camera app to open and then the power button to close. I returned it after about a week. I am guessing they didn’t fix this, but who knows.

    You know this means Kit Kat will release next Tuesday right? read between the lines….

    I would buy a phone like this for my wife. She would appreciate a real camera far more than the latest processor, a larger, more pixel dense screen, or the latest version of Android. There is a market out there for this, even if it’s not for you personally.

    • laheelahee

      i would totally get this for my brother!! of course im screwed b/c nothing “niche” comes to verizon -_-

    I know the Lumia 1020 has more MP but how would this Zoom do against the 1020?

    • Microsoftjunkie

      The S4 Zoom does beat when it comes the 1020, because it can Zoom farther than the 1020, but inside the range that the 1020 can produce without decrease in quality, the 1020 wins. Search YT there are some videos on it.

    Samsung is just flooding the market with stuff. It’s gonna backfire on them.

      Their manufacturing prowess gives them an advantage, and they are really tapping into it, aren’t they? I think the pendulum is swinging back to them being a little clunky and cheep from their seemingly rushed products.

      Its a method that works, but I am certainly not a fan of being overrun by 123123123123 variants being passed off as new devices.

      Starting to feel like Nokia in here with all these variants.

      • mustbepbs

        Apparently not, since the S4 hasn’t sold as much as they would have hoped.

        • Timothy Sternig

          They said they expected to sell 80 to 100 million units, but have only sold like 20 million units. Only…lol…like that’s a small number of units. That could be because they just finished selling 50 million units of the S3 before the S4 release.The S4 hasn’t even been out for a year yet though so I’d say they still aren’t doing too shabby.

        • Adrynalyne

          It outsold the iPhone 5 in August. Yeah, yeah, people knew the 5s was coming out.

          Their goal I assume is to get their name seen everywhere.

  • Derin Richardson

    As if the Samsung Round wasn’t bad enough…

    This nonsense must CEASE!

  • richkoos

    They should cut the camera hump off and just make it an attachment for any android phone like sony did.

    • MikeCiggy

      Exactly. It doesn’t even need to work with any Android phone. But a camera attachment that will work with most Galaxy S devices would sell tons because people already have the phones. If this thing could be snapped onto the back of an S3 or S4 it would be HUGE.
