Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom to have 10x optical zoom?

The Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom entered the rumor mill a few days ago – an S4 mini variant with a 16MP camera. A new rumor suggests that the "Zoom" moniker isn’t random, the phone will have a 10x optical zoom lens.

The Samsung Galaxy Camera also had a 16MP sensor and packed a whopping 21x zoom but it was quite thick. The Nokia 808 PureView did lossless zoom another way – with a super high-resolution sensor, but again it wasn't the most compact smartphone around.

So, how will the Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom achieve the impressive 10x optical zoom? The rumors are mum on this one, so take it with a pinch of salt. There are some compact cameras with 10x zoom but they are closer to 20mm thickness than 10mm.

The Galaxy S4 Zoom will reportedly pack a 4.3" qHD Super AMOLED screen, along with 8GB of built-in storage, microSD card slot, Bluetooth 4.0 and Wi-Fi a/b/g/n. It should be announced in early June.
