Samsung made yet another variant of its flagship Galaxy S4 phone official today.
The Galaxy S4 Zoom is a new Android smartphone with a big camera attached to the back. The camera has a 10x optical zoom, which means you can zoom in better without distorting the image. Most smartphone cameras use a digital zoom, which makes images blurrier the more you zoom in.
The Galaxy S4 Zoom takes 16 MP photos. It also has a software feature called the Zoom Ring that lets you send a photo to someone you’re talking to on the phone. Finally, Samsung created a Smart Mode in the camera software that automatically adjusts your settings to take the best photo.
No word on pricing or a release date.
The Galaxy S4 Zoom is just the latest version of the Galaxy S4. Samsung has also announced the Galaxy S4 Mini (smaller screen), Galaxy S4 Active (durable, water-resistant body), and the Galaxy S4 Google Edition (runs Google’s “clean” version of Android).
