This morning Samsung released the long anticipated Galaxy S4 Zoom, a true crossover between a smartphone and point and shoot camera. The phone features a 10x optical zoom lens that sits over a 16-megapixel CMOS Sensor and even packs a real Xenon flash for best in class low light performance.

This newest edition to the Galaxy S4 line features a Super AMOLED 4.3-inch qHD display with a resolution of 960x540, a 1.5GHz dual-core processor, and runs Android 4.2 Jelly Bean. The device supports LTE and has the usual compliments of Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, and Samsung apps, but the S4 Zoom is twice as thick as the original Galaxy S4 and weighs in at a whopping 208 grams.

On the camera side the S4 Zoom features an aperture range of f/3.1 to f/6.3 and has a maximum ISO of 3200 which should help in low light situations. Other than that, and the zoom being 10x shorter, the Galaxy S4 Zoom is photographically on par with last year's model.
