Samsung Galaxy S5 Zoom picture leaked

The first alleged picture of the Samsung Galaxy S5 Zoom has been leaked online.

The Samsung Galaxy S5 itself isn’t available to purchase yet, but that doesn’t stop the rumour mill from turning.

It seems Samsung’s second attempt at a camera-centric version of its flagship comes with a much slimmer and more subtle design than the Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom.

From the image you can see that the S5 Zoom is a lot thinner than the S4 iteration and the camera does not protrude so much from the rear of the device.

This is in line with previous leaks suggesting the lens would be “much better hidden in the casing” of the S5 Zoom.

From the engravings in the lens, you can see that the S5 Zoom will feature 10x optical zoom and should come with a Xenon flash just like its predecessor.

The sensor has apparently made the jump from 16-megapixel to 19-megapixels between the S4 Zoom and S5 Zoom though.

It also looks like Samsung has equipped the S5 Zoom with the same faux leather back as devices like the Samsung Galaxy Note 3.

In terms of specs, the S5 Zoom is expected to come with a 1.6GHz quad-core CPU and 2GB of RAM.

That 19-megapixel rear snapper is also rumoured to be paired with a 2-megapixel front-facing camera and 1080p full HD video recording.

It is tipped to feature a 4.8-inch display with 720p HD resolution and run the latest Android 4.4.2 KitKat OS with the new Samsung Touchwiq UI over the top.

Of course, we can’t tell much in terms of dimensions from this picture alone and it comes from a source that we’ve never even heard of before.

However, it looks like it could be a potential Samsung product, so watch this space for any more updates.
