The 16MP camera has a 10X optical zoom.  That’s stronger than typical phones including the current Samsung S4 and iPhone 5, each with 8MP cameras.

Users can take photo while on a phone call and then automatically send the photo to the person on the phone.

The S4 Zoom runs Android 4.2 Jelly Bean on a 1.5GHz dual-core processor.  The screen resolution is 960 x 540 pixels.

No pricing or release date has been announced.
