With that Samsung Unpacked invitation arriving last night, we’re understandably excited to learn just what Samsung might be planning to announce. The Galaxy S 5? Perhaps. A new Galaxy Gear smartwatch? Why not? A few hours back, we heard rumors that a Galaxy S 5 active might be in the works, so maybe even it might show up, rather than mirroring last year’s delayed arrival for those GS4 spin-offs. Now we’re looking at another possible GS5 variant, with new evidence pointing to a device that could very well be the Galaxy S 5 Zoom.
That oh-so-useful Indian import database Zauba is our best friend once again today, as it reveals Samsung’s model SM-C115, described only as a “Samsung mobile camera.” Couldn’t this be just some dinky point-and shoot? Well, the paperwork here mentions a value of $520, which is certainly in line with what we’d expect from another Zoom. We also notice that stand alone cameras are listed in this database as simply “Samsung cameras,” and the introduction of “mobile” here suggests a different type of device.
Does all this mean that we’re going to get a full GS5 lineup in three weeks? Maybe even a GS5 Mini joining the Active and Zoom? We can’t say just yet, but darn it if that’s not a compelling proposition.
