Retailer says the combination of a smartphone with a high-quality camera will meet the needs of its consumers
Phones 4U has become the first retailer to confirm it will stock the Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom when it is released in the UK this summer. Pricing and availability are yet to be released.
The Galaxy 4 Zoom combines a smartphone with a digital camera. Features include a 16-megapixel camera with x10 optical zoom and Xenon flash, 1.5GHz dual-core processor, Android 4.2 Jelly Bean OS, 4.3-inch HD Super AMOLED screen and up to 8GB of internal memory that can be expanded to 64GB with a microSD card.
In April, Phones 4U conducted an online survey to explore people’s attitudes towards the most recent handset launches and from the 453 responses it received, more than half said they prefer to use the camera on their mobile as opposed to a separate device.
Phones 4U chief commercial officer Scott Hooton said: “We know that over 53 per cent of Brits state that they always use the camera on their handset over a separate camera, so we are pleased to be meeting the convenience needs of our customers with the launch of the Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom in our stores.”
