Earlier this week, AT&T confirmed the launch of the camera-centric Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom on its network. The carrier has started selling the handset for $199.99 with a two-year agreement with AT&T. If you buy the handset off-contract, it’s going to set you back by $529, or $25 per month for 20-months if you buy it on AT&T Next plan.
For this price, you’ll get an impressive 16MP camera with 10x optical zoom and optical image stabilization. On the other hand, the handset brings mid-range specifications at the table. Galaxy S4 Zoom packs a 4.3-inch display sporting a resolution of 540 x 960 pixels, a dual-core processor with a clock speed of 1.5GHz and 1.5GB of RAM.
On the storage side, the device features 8GB internal storage with a microSD card support of up to 64GB. Other features include LTE connectivity, Wi-Fi, Wi-Fi Direct, Wi-Fi hotspot, 2,330 mAh battery and runs Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean out of the box.
If you’re one of those users who are more concerned about the camera performance, this is a great phone. Otherwise, for $199.99, you can get many high-end smartphones which bring top of the line specifications at the table. Even, at a lower price if you’re willing to sign a contract with any carrier.
