The Galaxy S4 Zoom should become available in the UK tomorrow, July 11. Clove has announced that they will sell the joint smartphone-camera for £369 excluding VAT (£442.80 including). The Zoom will only ship in white and comes with 8GB of internal memory, though just 5GB of that is accessible to the user. Like most digital cameras, you're expected to expand this thing with a MicroSD card, so you might want to add that to your cart when you place that order.


The Galaxy S4 Zoom is undoubtedly a product aimed at a niche audience. It includes a 16MP camera with x10 optical zoom, opposed to the digital zoom that is offered on typical smartphones - those that feature zoom at all, that is. It comes with a dedicated shutter key (a concept I wish standard smartphone manufacturers would rally behind).

Once stripped of its camera enhancements, the Zoom is largely similar to the Galaxy S4 Mini. It comes with a 4.3 inch screen, a 1.5GHz dual-core processor, 1.5GB of RAM, and a 2330mAh battery. It runs Android 4.2.2 and, of course, TouchWiz. If you want to turn some heads by playing Angry Birds on your camera - or, perhaps, the upcoming Tiny Thief - that ability will soon be yours. Enjoy.
