The Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom release date has formally pegged as a somewhat vague ‘summer 2013’, but that isn’t stopping a number of retailers letting you register interest in the camera heavy smartphone right now.
Officially announced following weeks of rumours and premature outings, the Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom is a camera-centric smartphone which packs a 16-megapixel CMOS sensor alongside an unparalleled 10x optical zoom. The third direct spinoff of the flagship Samsung Galaxy S4, the Zoom adds a 4.2-inch Super AMOLED display, Google’s Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean OS and optical image stabilisation to its bulging specs sheet.
Although Samsung has yet to officially announce a Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom release date or price, it has revealed the handset will be made available this summer, and that’s enough for many retailers to start offering pre-orders.
Where can you buy the Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom? Read on to find out.
