Samsung could be planning a camera phone dubbed the Galaxy S 4 Zoom

Samsung logoSamMobile is reporting that the Galaxy S 4 Zoom will be Samsung's first actual "camera phone." It will reportedly be equipped with a 16-megapixel camera sensor, which may be the same one featured in the currently available Galaxy Camera point-and-shoot.

The rumored device will allegedly have a smaller screen size than the current Galaxy S 4 handseta 4.3-inch qHD Super AMOLED display, to be exactand 8GB of on-board storage, as well as an expansion slot to help store all of those extra photos. The phone will come with standard handset capabilities, like Bluetooth 4.0, 802.11 a/b/g/n Wi-Fi, GPS, and Android Jelly Bean, though no specific iteration has been specified. Rumors also point to a dual-core or quad-core processor, but no particular SoCs have been mentioned.

This rumor trails behind a pack of others surrounding the different variations of Samsung's Android-equipped Galaxy handsets. Most center on different variations of the Galaxy S 4 smartphone, including mentions of a "life proof" series of handsets and both miniature and "Mega" versions of the popular smartphone. This camera phone, however, could look like Samsung's current Wi-Fi only Galaxy Camera while sharing all of the same phone capabilities as its handsets.

SamMobile has a particularly sound track record regarding rumors. And with the other rumination regarding Samsung handsets, it appears the company may have more devices up its sleeve for later this year. The Galaxy S 4 Zoom may arrive sometime this summer.
