If previous leaks had us fairly convinced Samsung's Galaxy S 4 Zoom cameraphone was a real device, this latest one has us certain. A Russian website has published what can only be described as a full review of the Zoom, before it's even been officially announced. The camera is said to pack a 16-megapixel sensor, and is capable of 10x optical zoom, achieved by rotating a ring situated around the lens; this ring is also used to launch the camera mode. A piece of glass sits flush with the end of the lens for dust protection. Inside, the Zoom is running on a dual-core 1.5GHz Exynos processor, 1.5GB of RAM and eight gigs of internal storage (naturally, there's a microSD slot for boosting that). Facing you is a 4.3-inch 960 x 540 display showing Android 4.2.2, and powering the whole thing is a huge 2,330mAh removable battery. Other specs include a 1.9-megapixel front-facing camera and IR blaster. Connection options include LTE, WiFi, Bluetooth 4.0 and NFC.
The camera's default shooting mode is 16:9 at 12-megapixels, but obviously there are tons of settings to tweak, including 26 different camera modes. There are a ton of sample pictures available, and they look pretty impressive on the whole. We've put another shot of the camera, and one of our favorite sample shots after the break. hi-tech.mail.ru report that it's scheduled to launch in July at a cost of 19,990 rubles, or around $618 by conversion.
