Capable of combining the roles of smart-phone and compact camera, the GALAXY S4 zoom will be available in-store from next week through selected Samsung retail partners and at the Samsung Experience Stores in Melbourne and Sydney for an RRP of $699.

The Android Jelly Bean 4.2 operating system supports a variety of camera function and enables users to share photos quickly and easily. The GALAXY S4 zoom also features the latest version of Samsung Hub, a one-stop destination for music, videos, books and games. Through a collaboration with online photo album service, Blurb, users can edit images and order prints directly from the device. Samsung Link makes it possible to transfer images to a compatible laptop or tablet wirelessly  with the touch of a button.
