Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom comes up with 4.3 inch qHD Super Amoled display and supports 540x960 pixels HD resolution with 256ppi pixel density, this is a same resolution and pixel density we will see on S4 Mini, but with 8mp Camera instead of S4 Zoom brilliant 16 mp Camera


Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom has similar design that we have on S4 Mini and big S4, but with different measurements. S4 Zoom measures  125.5 x 63.5 x 15.4 mm and weighs 208 grams. These measurements tell us the story that S4 Zoom is taller than S4 Mini as well as it is almost 90 grams heavier than S4 Mini, but its nice to see that its has almost same width that S4 Mini has, despite the fact Zoom is 5.4 mm thicker than S4 mini because of its Big Lens for photography and shooting.


S4 Zoom is equipped with 1.5 GHz dual-core Cortex A9 Processor with  400 Mali Gpu  and 1.5 gb of ram which seems to really fast in comparison to its predecessor S3 Mini. However, it’s questionable, why Samsung has lowered down a cpu clock speed of S4 zoom and even its Gpu speed in comparison to S4 Mini and even it is lower in comparison to Galaxy Camera Cpu clock speed.


S4 Zoom comes with 8 GB of internal storage (5 GB useable), but you have a microSD card slot for expansion up to 64 Gb.


S4 Zoom packs the usual options such as Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, and A-GPS, Wifi Hotspot, NFC, Infrared and as well as packed with 4g LTE for fast internet speed from service provider.

S4 Zoom offers 16 Megapixel stunning camera with 1080p videos recording and offers 1.9 mega pixels camera on the front for video calling unlike Samsung Galaxy Camera where we dont have front camera.


S4 equipped with 2330 mAh battery which seems to me good in comparison to S4 mini 1900 mAh battery, but not as good as its bigger variant S4 (2600 mAh).


S4 Mini runs on Android 4.2.2 (Jelly Bean), the Mega comes with some of the software features loaded on the S4 and Note 2.  Lock screen is customisable and the quick settings found on the drop-down notification bar. It also comes with Samsung's Air View, Smart Screen, screen mirroring and S Beam functions.


To round up all the things we have discussed above S4 Zoom  is targeted to those people who want to enjoy S4 features in compact size as well as they love to shoot videos from a brilliant camera like s4 Zoom. S4 Zoom is a great replacement to Galaxy Camera and compact in size with new features like front camera and calling options. However, S4 Zoom comes up with some slow specs in comparison to S4 Mini as well as Galaxy Camera. S4 Zoom will be available in the beginning of July and cost about £350 to £400 depending on storage options.
