We had seen the Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom being launched in India back in July, and while within this amount of time products usual become eligible for price drops, this camera-phone hybrid from the South Korean company has got its cost increased instead. The device was earlier bearing a price tag of Rs 29,900, whereas it has now grabbed hold of a retail value which reads Rs 30,590. It might just be a trivial increase, but Samsung is compensating for that by coupling purchases with a free LCD display or lens replacement guarantee.
The Galaxy S4 Zoom, our hands-on impressions of which declared it to be a pretty satisfying phone for those who’re seeking such handsets, has received this price increase on Samsung’s official eStore. Sized at 63.5mm x 125.5mm x 15.4mm, this phone tips the scales at 208 grams. On its front surface rests a 4.3-inch qHD monitor, while its rear panel is highlighted by a 10x optical zoom lens which is complemented by a 16MP sensor and a xenon flash.
This smartphone runs the Android Jelly Bean OS, and gains steam from a 1.5GHz dual core Cortex-A9 processor. 8GB worth of internal storage memory has been granted to it by Samsung along with a microSD card slot with a limit of 64GB. HSPA+, USB 2.0, Wi-Fi, GPS, NFC and other connectivity options aside, it also features a 1.9MP webcam, a 2,330mAh battery and more.
Like we said, the price of the Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom has now been increased till up to Rs 30,590, and those in India who wish to purchase it can also look forward to a display or lens replacement guarantee.
