Samsung recently unveiled the Galaxy S4 Zoom camera phone.\u00a0 It\u2019s literally a phone and camera combo that should raise eyebrows and make people excited at the same time.\u00a0 The Galaxy S4 Zoom is probably the first true camera and phone combo since it is based on the Galaxy S4 mini with a real zoom lens slapped on it. \u00a0The device was leaked days ago and it\u2019s now finally official. The Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom looks funny, at least that\u2019s my reaction when I saw it.\u00a0 It appeared like a bad joke that turned out real.\u00a0 The functionality is a different story however.\u00a0 The Galaxy S4 Zoom is useful to a lot of people, specifically people who want a full digital camera feature on a full-featured phone.\u00a0 \u00a0It will have fans for sure but count me out.\u00a0 I don\u2019t particularly like the product since it\u2019s awkward to use as a phone, although it\u2019s surely nice to use as a camera.\u00a0 For the price, I\u2019d rather get an Android phone and a digital camera. If you\u2019re interested about the product, the specs are quite good.\u00a0 The Samsung Galaxy S4 zoom features a 4.3-inch qHD display, 1.5GHz dual-core CPU, 1.5GB RAM, 8GB of internal storage (expandable via microSD slot) and a 1.9MP front facing camera.\u00a0 It runs Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean. \u00a0For the camera side of the phone, you\u2019ll get a 16-megapixel sensor and a 10x optical zoom lens. The Galaxy S4 Zoom\u2019s camera has optical image stabilization and a Xenon flash and a zoom ring that launches apps when turned.\u00a0 The Zoom will have software features like Photo Suggest that shows photos taken by others in the same area the user is in. Pricing details have not been revealed yet but rumors say the price will be at around $618.\u00a0 The\u00a0Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom will be available around fourth quarter of this year, hopefully including the Philippines.
