Reported Specs Leaked for Upcoming Samsung Galaxy S5 Zoom

If last year was any indication as to how Samsung handles its device portfolio, we can expect 2014 to be filled with countless Android-powered devices from the manufacturer. The newest to get hyped is the Galaxy S5 Zoom, a sequel to last year’s Galaxy S4 Zoom, which is a hybrid between the main Galaxy S flagship device, and a Galaxy Camera.

Since Samsung showed off the all new Galaxy Camera 2 at CES in January, and has the Galaxy S5 coming in April, the Galaxy S5 Zoom should be a perfect marriage of the two. 

With specs apparently posted on GFXBench, we can see that the GS5 Zoom is no slouch. The device should come powered with the all-new Exynos 5 Hexa processor, 2GB of RAM, feature a massive 19MP shooter on its backside, a 2MP front-facing camera, and come with a 4.8″ HD touchscreen display. It won’t stand head and shoulders above last year’s model, but with the minor bump seen in the Galaxy S5 over the Galaxy S4, this is to be expected.

There is no word on when the Galaxy S5 Zoom could hit the market, but we assume it will take place sometime after the April launch of the flagship GS5.

    Just another samesung abortion

    • CHRIS42060

      Does that mean I will need to get extra insurance in Michigan to buy one?

      • Milton

        Hahahaha lol

    Price tag is a big factor. Previous Galaxy Camera models have just been too expensive for what they were.

    • michael arazan

      especially when you can get a dslr starting at those prices

  • SplashMTN

    Unless they put a sensor similar to the size of the one found in the 1020 this is most likely just going to be a decent shooter. I have a 6 mp Nikon that will run circles around my 13 mp G2. I realize a lot of that has to do with the glass attached to it, but the sensor makes a big difference as well.

  • Droid Ronin

    I don’t understand why Samsung has to always maintain such a huge portfolio of products. It just makes it harder for them to roll out updates and provide support for all of them.

    • Intellectua1

      I don’t understand why you think that’s an issue. Apparently they can handle it or else they wouldn’t do it

    • Adrynalyne

      They understand that the vast majority of their customers don’t even know these phones get updates, nor care. There are two main ways to conquer a market:

      Have a vastly superior product, or flood it.

    • Samsung makes its own parts so I imagine the margins are bigger than most others so they can flood the market without following the fate of htc

  • Rashad

    Only 19 Megapixals? The software on this cameraphone has to be top of the line in order for it to even be considered.

    • If the software and autofocus is anything like that seen on the GS5, I’m kinda excited.

      • needa

        that autofocus was shown off with the snap 801 wasnt it?

        • Pretty sure those were international models, which I think are Exynos, but I can’t confirm that.

      • The Narrator

        But on a 720, you can’t see all da pixals!

    • The Narrator

      But, it’s going to be like $400+, i can get a way better Canon or Sony for that or around that.

    • BSweetness

      “Only 19 Megapixals?”

      19MP is right at the standard for many point and shoot cameras out there right now. What sets this device apart is that it doesn’t feature a smartphone style camera. It’s essentially a point and shoot camera with a phone built into it. It has a better sensor/lens setup along with what’s likely to be a 10x optical zoom. 19MP is more than acceptable for what this device is likely to be used for by most people.

      On many smartphones, you’re seeing increasing megapixel counts in an attempt to make up for smaller sensors, inferior lenses, and a lack of an optical zoom. While this device certainly won’t be anywhere close to being top of the line in any of those departments, that’s not as much of an issue here.

  • Good_Ole_Pinocchio

    Gee, thanks samsung. Do we know how much the original sold?

    • My guess, and it’s just a guess, is somewhere between 5 and 10 units. 🙂

      • Good_Ole_Pinocchio

        Sounds like great margins. lol

      • DeeFrog

        And yet I’ve seen someone in real life with one but have never seen ANYONE with a Moto X lol

    • BeejRich

      Was at one of my local AT&T locations yesterday and they said they literally haven’t sold a single one since it came out.

      • CHRIS42060

        When I got my phone replaced in Jan I asked the same question and the salesperson told me he only knows of one ever sold.

  • Drew

    MOTO X is the best phone ever for every freaking body. Period.

    • Yeah, but dat camera!

      • Dave

        Anyway you can ban him Or give him a warning?

        • Adrynalyne

          He is just doing what everyone else does for their favorite brand.

          • Dave

            I get that, but he is saying the same thing constantly which is getting really annoying.

          • Adrynalyne

            I’ve been called names, threatened, had my daughter threatened with death and molestation on this disqus. Those that did that are still here. So I would be a little dismayed if this was a bannable offense, even if I find him annoying as well.

          • Dave

            I’m sorry that you had to go through that. The Internet is a crazy place (I’m sure you know that). You just have to watch out for the crazy people that don’t have anything else better to do than just to troll and scar people.

          • Adrynalyne

            I hear ya.

          • Tim242

            You are a lying drama queen. Nobody threatened to kill or molest your daughter. Chris said that if you had a daughter, she should commit suicide, because you are her dad. That may not be nice, but that is far from someone threatening her life. Nobody ever mentioned molestation. You are a liar that needs to find a job to fill your time. You are sick.

            P..S. Yes, I upvoted his comment, because you are such an @ss.

          • Adrynalyne

            I have proof. Whatever. All you do is post to fight with me or others. I’d tell you to go eat a bowl full of dicks but you would do it so…

          • Tim242

            Where is the threat to her life? That’s right, there isn’t one.

          • Adrynalyne

            Are you daft?

            I said I consider that a threat. Let me repost it for you:

            “What you constitute as a threat and what I do are two different things.”

            Either way, what does it matter? You are sick enough to like the idea of children killing themselves because you don’t like someone on the Internet. Get help.

          • Tim242

            That is not someone threatening to harm anyone. You made that up to make yourself feel more like a victim. What I like is watching people push your buttons. If you can’t take it, stop dishing it out.

          • Adrynalyne

            I don’t threaten people. Nor do I wish death on them. Nor am I a victim. You walked into a conversation you knew nothing about and I was making a point about being annoying isn’t a bannable offense. In fact, everything goes here, as you can see. You just came in to talk smack.

            I feel sorry that you will never know the love of being a father and instead like to spread hate and discontent. Don’t forget, YOU replied to me start a fight. Hypocrite.

          • Tim242

            I replied to set the record straight. You were flat out lying. What Chris said was NOT A THREAT. If you don’t know the difference, you should ask someone to explain it to you.

          • Adrynalyne

            I consider it a threat. You do not. Guess which opinion matters to me?

            Go troll elsewhere.

          • Tim242

            A threat would be if he said he was going to harm her. Saying that she should harm herself is mean-spirited, but far from a threat. He was pushing your buttons. This is the internet, that’s what people get off on. You sure do your fair share. You know, like when you insulted my job…while sitting jobless at home.

          • Adrynalyne

            Heh, I wrote that while at work, but keep on thinking you know something.

            Anyway, I didn’t insult your job.

          • Tim242

            Yeah, surrrrrre. Of course you didn’t. You also didn’t get offended with my rebuttal hahaha

          • Adrynalyne

            How do you not see that you are a troll?


          • Tim242

            How do you not see that you are? You are classic troll….blast people for what they say, while defending or denying your nonsense.

          • Adrynalyne

            How hypocritical of you. Look in the mirror, you just described yourself.

            Moving on…have fun.

          • Tim242

            Yes, let’s…on both accounts.

          • droid-life reader

            hey tim you’re a loser for even insinuating that it’s okay for people to speak that way about his daughter. you make readers not want to visit droid life. and you’re an embarrassment to the entire homosexual community, take down your avatar, you’re undeserving of it and clearly don’t stand for what it’s intended to mean

          • Tim242

            So says the person hiding behind a guest account. Screw you : )

          • Dave

            What does moto x has to do with this article?

          • michael arazan

            Definitely not the camera on it

        • Guest

          He’s doing it ironically. Look at his first post 17 days ago. He’s apparently annoyed with Moto X / N5 fanboyism, and is a bit overcommitted to the “joke”.

          • Kevin

            He’s not joking.

          • Tim242

            Yes he is.

    • Guest

      Dude I wish i could ban your IP. Your really annoying.

    • The Narrator

      Drew, tell us more. I’m intrigued.

    • Kevin

      You damn right! And don’t you forget it!

    • Dave

      Man you really need to go out more. Spring is right around the corner.

    • Dr_Buttballs

      “MOTO X is the best phone for every freaking body. Plain and simple nothing beats Moto.”

      Fixed that for ya.

      • Adrynalyne

        Bwahaha! Put a Richard Yarrell spin on it!
