When it comes to releasing multiple variants of a single device, nobody can ever beat the South Korean giant Samsung.
Back in 2013, Samsung released different versions of Galaxy S4 (Galaxy S4 Active, Galaxy S4 Mini and the Galaxy S4 Zoom), and still keeps on launching new variants (Galaxy S4 Black Edition), so as to cater to much larger audiences.
Take the Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom, for instance. It's a model that's identical to the S4 Mini-except it comes with a 16MP rear-facing camera and advance zoom capabilities.
This year looks no different, with various rumors pointing toward a similar trend. The newly launched Samsung Galaxy S5 is expected to hit retail shelves by mid April. Meanwhile, the South Korean giant might repeat the trend with the recently launched Galaxy S5.
We cannot promise the Galaxy S4 Active-type variant again; however, it seems that Samsung might probably launch Galaxy S5 Zoom in the coming months. Well, today the alleged specifications of Samsung Galaxy S5 Zoom have been leaked ahead of its global debut. Yes, the Galaxy S5 Zoom exists somewhere in the world.
According to a recent GFXBench entry, the yet-to-be launched handset (SM-C115) would have a whooping 19MP rear-facing camera. On the specs front, the Galaxy S5 Zoom is expected to have a large 4.8-inch 720p HD display, Exynos 5250 hexa-core chipset with ARM Mali-T624 graphics, 2 GB of RAM, and 4.5GB/5.1GB of internal storage. Further, the device will run Android 4.2.2 Kitkat.
The biggest question arises here is that whether the Galaxy S5 will be identical to its predecessor or not. If yes, then it would be a tough chance to see Samsung selling the Galaxy S5 Zoom in large numbers. Remember, how bulky the original Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom was?
