Smartphones with impressive on-board cameras are now becoming the norm and Nokia has recently set the bar high. The Nokia released a smartphone with what was referred to as high-end technology. Many companies quickly became wide-eyed and started developing their own versions of high-end camera technology. Samsung has achieved that with the Galaxy S4 Zoom smartphone. This smartphone is impressive in that it runs on the Android platform and has a 16 megapixel camera on board. For close up shots, the S4 features a 10x optical zoom lens.

The Samsung S4 is quite an addition to the stable of electronic gadgets the Korean company now has on the market. This new smartphone is simply another home run which the company can tout as many manufacturers are trying to keep up. Samsung made quite a statement in the first quarter of this year when the galaxy line of phones outsold the Apple iPhones for the first time. Since then, Samsung tablets, laptops, and other electronic gadgets have enjoyed robust sales numbers as well. Samsung has also just released a new camera to the wide range of gadgets they have available.

The Galaxy S4 smartphone not only features a hefty megapixel level and high powered zoom lens, but also image stabilization, for those who are snapping pictures with a shaky hand. This smartphone could be quite a bit of competition for the camera only manufacturers which are in existence.

The purpose of the new smartphone was eloquently discussed by the mobile director at Samsung, JK Shin. He said: “As communication continues to become increasingly visual in nature, people wish to capture and share their moments in the highest quality possible, but often do not have the space or inclination to carry a dedicated camera for this purpose.”

The latest Samsung handsets which are Windows based are planning to be introduced at the Microsoft developers conference in San Francisco next week. This conference is in the immediate wake of the Apple conference in which many new gadgets were introduced. Samsung sees this as quite an opportunity to be highlighted in media outlets, just as Apple was a couple of weeks ago.

Samsung introduced the comparable model to the S3 last year known as the Ativ S. This year an anticipated version of the S4 is expected to be introduced. The San Francisco conference represents an excellent opportunity for Samsung to feature new devices and to hold the attention of the world for an entire week.

Gadget insurance is a wise choice if choosing to carry any Samsung gadgets out and about. With a low monthly payment gadget cover can be yours. Nothing else offers protection against theft and accidental damage like gadget insurance. It continues to grow in popularity in the UK due to its quick claim service and low monthly payments. Gadget cover always attempts to have a client back up and running within 48 hours after the incident. This is comforting due to the amount of time we spend with our gadgets and how important they are to the accomplishment of our goals.–
