Samsung seems to be in overdrive lately, cranking out device after device. The Galaxy S4 just hit the market in the last few weeks, the Galaxy Note 3 is in the works, the Galaxy S4 Mini was just announced, and now it looks like we may be seeing two more devices – the Galaxy S4 Zoom and Active – officially debuted by the South Korea-based company.
We’ve reported rumors about both devices already, but, according to BGR, Samsung will be announcing the two at a press conference slated to take place on June 20. If the company is trying to guarantee a spot on everyone’s radar, it’s certainly doing a good job of it. We can hardly finish reporting one rumor or release before another one falls on our desk.
While the two new models will be based largely on the flagship Galaxy S4, there are some defining features.
Galaxy S4 Zoom: The Zoom is targeted at those who take mobile photography seriously. It comes with a 16-megapixel rear camera, complete with a 10x optical zoom. In addition, it is expected to sport a 4.3-inch Super AMOLED display, be powered by a 1.6GHz dual-core processor, and have 8GB storage with a microSD slot for extra memory storage.
Galaxy S4 Active: The Active is intended for those who are always on-the-go, in search of rugged adventure. This model is said to be essentially the same as the standard S4, but a bit more rugged, dust- and waterproof. It should have a 5-inch full HD display, quad-core Snapdragon 600 processor, 16GB storage with microSD slot to expand, and an 8-megapixel rear camera.
So it’s a lot of exciting news on the Samsung front, and we’re hoping next month’s announcement pulls through.
