It looks like Samsung plans to milk the Galaxy S4 branding for all it is worth. There are several variants of the new flagship coming to market sometime this year. Two we have already heard about, (the ruggedized version and the Galaxy S4 Mini), but we have a new one to add to the list today.
Samsung is also working on a "Galaxy S4 Zoom" that will come with a 16 MegaPixel camera. This one is obviously focused on photography. It also has a few other differentiating specs. Here's a breakdown,
- 4.3-inch qHD display
- 16MP Camera
- 8GB of internal storage
- A microSDXC support
- Bluetooth 4.0 LE (low energy)
- Android Jelly Bean
It's interesting that a phone dedicated to photography would have such a small storage of 8GB, but in a way it makes sense. As you can see they also will be offering a microSDXC card slot which is where most folks would want to store their pics anyway. No pricing was shared about this device, but the intel is that it will launch in June or July. We will keep you apprised when we find out more.
