Samsung have lifted the covers off the Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom LTE, their second stab at a compact camera/phone hybrid, with this latest version supporting LTE 4G mobile data connections.
Offering multi-band 4G, it works across six different band sets, meaning the new superfast networks from O2 and Vodafone (as well as the veteran 4G service from EE) should work without issue.
Other than that, it’s business as usual for the Galaxy S4 Zoom, sporting a 4.3-inch Super AMOLED 960 x 540 screen and 1.5GHz dual-core processor backed by 1.5GB of RAM. Running Android 4.2 Jelly Bean, what truly sets the device apart from other Galaxy devices from Samsung is that, as well as offering the usual array of Android smartphone features, the Galaxy S4 Zoom also has a full 10x optical zoom lens built in. It’s basically a compact camera, with all the social-networking and photo sharing mod cons of a smartphone.
“The introduction of LTE capabilities to the Galaxy S4 Zoom demonstrates our commitment to providing customers with the best possible product on the market,” said Simon Stanford, vice president of the IT and mobile division at Samsung UK.
“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.”
