While Sprint has chosen November 8 as its date to launch multiple Android devices, that will also be the day that AT&T launches the Samsung Galaxy S 4 Zoom, an Android smartphone with a 16-megapixel camera and 10x optical zoom.
Readers may remember the Samsung Galaxy S 4 Zoom as one of the photo-focused devices that Samsung exhibited in June. On Friday, November 8, the S 4 Zoom will finally make its way to the U.S. AT&T plans to sell the phone for $199.99 on a two-year agreement or $25 per month when purchased with the AT&T Next payment program. A limited time offer can also elect to get a free Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 with a requirement for a monthly data account or Mobile Share plan, or a minimum $100 AT&T smartphone credit for a trade-in with Next installments.
The Galaxy S 4 Zoom will launch with a 4.3-inch qHD Super AMOLED display, 1.5GB of RAM, an IR controller, and a 2,330 mAh battery. The headline feature is its protruding 16-megapixel camera with OIS, 10x optical zoom, and Samsung's many camera modes. Anyone who wanted a Galaxy Camera with phone capabilities will get their wish when the phone launches later this week.
