Samsung Galaxy S 4 Active, GS4 Zoom specs rumored

We just got an opportunity to check out some pretty believable specs attributed to Samsung’s upcoming Galaxy S 4 Mini, but that’s only one of several new GS4 spin-offs we’ve been tracking. Chances are we’ll soon hear the Mini announced, in addition to the GS4 Active and the GS4 Zoom. We’ve had the chance to look at a phone that appears to be the Active, but remain more in the dark concerning the Zoom. Today we may be able to finally get a better sense of these two devices, with a leaked set of specs for each.

Like the GS4 Mini, the Zoom should have a 4.3-inch qHD display. In fact, the phone reportedly looks a whole lot like the Mini. We don’t know if it will also run a Snapdragon 400, but a dual-core SoC running at 1.6GHz is mentioned. It would lack LTE, offer 8GB of internal storage, and support microSD expansion. But this a phone called “Zoom,” so what about that camera? According to this, look for a 16-megapixel sensor outfitted with a 10x optical zoom.

As for the Active, it’s thankfully sounding a whole lot more like the GS4 proper. Rumors have been flip-flopping over the hardware, and it’s been hard to get a read on the SoC in particular. According to this source, the Active would run a Snapdragon 600, just like some GS4 versions. Other specs like its 2GB of RAM and five-inch 1080p display similarly match the GS4. Look for an eight-megapixel main camera, 16GB of internal storage, and microSD expansion.

We really hope that’s correct, especially about the GS4 Active, as another mid-ranger would have been a real disappointment.
