Samsung set to unveil Galaxy S4 Zoom in Ghana
A statement from Samsung Ghana on Monday said “the new device is set to be launched in Ghana on the July 26 this month.”
“As a new innovative addition to the GALAXY S4 family, the S4 Zoom is more than a phone. It takes the body of a 4.3 inch Galaxy S4 mini and adds a 16MP CMOS sensor and 10x optical zoom to create a new category in the market.”
Ryan Na, Sales Director for Handheld Products at Samsung Ghana, said Smartphones with high quality cameras were becoming increasingly popular and the Galaxy S4 Zoom had been specifically designed to meet the demands of consumers.
“Communication is becoming increasingly visual, with people wanting to capture and share their moments in the highest quality possible, but often do not have the space or inclination to carry a dedicated camera for this purpose and the logic behind the S4 Zoom is instead of carrying two devices, they need to carry one”, he said.
As part of its unique features that enhances the user experience of the GALAXY S4 Zoom, the statement said Samsung had included for the camera side, the Zoom Ring feature. “This is a control that sits on the outer portion of the lens and brings easy access to features.
“Zoom Ring can be used to activate the Quick Launch and shortcut features that launch the user into the camera interface and it can also be used to send an image while on an active phone call.”
The 4.3-inch AMOLED device is powered by 1.5GHz dual-core processor with a resolution of 960 x 540 pixels and runs on latest Android Jelly Bean operating system. It houses 1.5GB RAM and 8GB storage capacity and can be expanded up to 64GB using microSD slot. This smart device runs a long lasting 2330 mAh battery and weighs 208 grams.
Samsung is seeking to extend its Galaxy models in a bid to cater to different people with variety of interests and the GALAXY S4 zoom is targeting technology buffs and social media enthusiasts.
