Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom, at first look, made me a bit confused about its actual existence. At first, seeing the front side, I imagined a smartphone. But when I saw the rear part, it was more of a camera thing. Finally, I realized that this is neither a Smartphone, nor a camera but a combo of them. Let’s dig into this strange unique combo.
Samsung Galaxy S4 Combo is another variant of Samsung’s very own flagship model Galaxy S4. Samsung had already launched other variants viz, Samsung Galaxy S4 Active & Samsung Galaxy S4 mini. But this one is not less than something special.
Not following general trend of embedding a high pixel camera in the back of a smartphone, they have rather integrated a whole camera. Galaxy Zoom is featuring a 10x optical zoom lens in front of its 16-megapixel CMOS sensor, with a Xenon flash for adding some extra light to your images. It may be termed as the hybrid species of smartphone resulting from combination of a high end flagship smartphone with a camera which is high end as well.
