As you probably already know, last night an event was held in London organized by the South Korean firm in order to present its new products. At the beginning of the conference, Samsung immediately highlighted the three new variants of its flagship smartphone, namely the Galaxy S4 Mini, Galaxy S4 Active and Galaxy S4 Zoom. The technical characteristics of these devices are of course already known by most consumers, however, Samsung sees fit to do a little demonstration so that everyone is aware of the interest that could provide these products.
Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini
The Galaxy S4 Mini is a variation in average end version of the Galaxy S4. It embeds thus a 4.3-inch Super AMOLED with qHD resolution. Under the hood, the device offers a dual-core SoC clocked at 1.7 GHz driven by 2GB of RAM. A primary digital camera 8 MP equips the device. Its average character range will therefore belittle its price compared to conventional Galaxy S4.
Samsung Galaxy S4 Active
The Galaxy S4 Active in turn is a more robust variant of the Galaxy S4, as it is IP67 certified. Certification that allows it to be completely sealed against water and dust, making the device able to stay for 30 min under water to a depth of one meter. Aqua mode has been added to the 8 MP digital camera to use this property, and to take a picture with the volume button on the device, because the touchscreen does not work inside the water.
In any case, Samsung has not failed to demonstrate by placing the product in a container of water. Moreover, the technical specifications of the smartphone are similar to the classic Galaxy S4 except the camera and the screen, because the smartphone will carry a camera of 8 MP instead of 13 MP, and a screen TFT if the Galaxy S4 uses a classic super AMOLED. The SoC quad-core 1.9 GHz Snapdragon 600 followed by 2 GB RAM and battery 2600 mAh will always await you.
Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom
Finally, Samsung has focused on the Galaxy S4 Zoom, which is the first smartphone to feature a 10x optical zoom. Of course, if you are a fan of cameras, you might know that the images taken by a digital sensor are less favorable than those with an optical sensor, if one focuses only on the noise, or the color. The same is true for video recording. In addition, the functionality of the camera terminal revolve around its manual zoom on the lens, and can also be used for switching between 25 shooting modes offered.
Finally, Samsung also announced the upcoming availability of new colors for its Galaxy S4 namely blue, purple, brown, and fuchsia for short. We are so eager to have its variants in hand to perform various tests.
