Last June Samsung announced that they will soon be releasing the Galaxy S4 Zoom, which can be described as a Galaxy S4 Mini with advanced camera features. There are currently two version of this model, an HSDPA and an LTE. The HSDPA model has been available in the market since July however it is only just recently that the LTE version is being released.
The Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom LTE is making its first appearance in Europe as announced by Samsung. The device is going to be available at several European carriers which includes Orange, Deutsche Telekom, Tele2, and Telia Sonera just to name a few. Pricing details have not been revealed yet.
According to Young Lee, Executive Vice President and Head of Samsung Europe Telecommunications Operation, “The introduction of LTE capabilities to the Galaxy S4 Zoom demonstrates our commitment to providing customers with the best possible product on the market. Today’s consumers place great importance on being connected with their world, a need that is catered for with the LTE technology. It’s powerful, stylish and is perfect for those who want to take outstanding pictures from a device that’s always with them and then share them immediately and easily.”
The Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom LTE is similar to the HSDPA version; the only notable difference is its LTE functionality. Available to the LTE version is its in-call photo sharing feature. This allows users to snap a photo and immediately sending it to the person they are talking to.
What’s probably the best feature of this device is its high-end camera that comes with a Zoom ring feature. This feature allows all key features of the camera to be accessed using one control system.
