Built with the Galaxy S4 technology, the S4 Zoom features a zoom ring which can be used to control the camera features. The Zoom ring can be used to capture pictures while you are on a call and send it to the person you are speaking to instantly via MMS. The ring can also be used for a quick launch and 10x Zoom.

The 16 MP camera features a 10x Optical Zoom with built in Optical Image Stabilizer technology wich stabilizes the images while you might shake the device when you are capturing a picture.

The S4 Zoom also helps in comparing your photos with those taken by fellow photographers. It also suggests you an ideal nearby location which will give you the vantage point you need for that perfect photo. This feature is known as Photo Suggest.

Other specifications of the device are similar to that of the Samsung Galaxy S4. The device runs on Android 4.2 Jelly Bean. More technical specifications can be seen in the infographic below:
