Android handset buyers looking for DSLR niceties will want to head to their nearest AT&T store this Friday and grab the latest photo-centric flavor of Samsung's flagship smartphone.
Available to AT&T Next customers for $25 per month or $199.99 with a two-year agreement, the Galaxy S4 Zoom features a 10x optical zoom as well as a manual control ring with DSLR-style spin to focus functionality.
The carrier claimed the handset's camera is a first of its kind, offering a dedicated shutter button and Optical Image Stabilizer on top of a 16MP lens. The snapper can shoot 30fps video in 1080p HD or 60fps video in 720p HD.
Trade-in and save
Prospective S4 Zoom buyers can take advantage of an offer AT&T announced last week (opens in new tab), which pays a minimum $100 AT&T promotion card with the trade-in of an eligible smartphone.
Running through January 9, 2014, the offer also applies to customers purchasing a smartphone using an AT&T Next installment plan, and the promotion card can be applied toward a wireless service bill, accessories or even a data-equipped tablet.
For new customers without a trade-in, the purchase of an AT&T Galaxy S4 Zoom can instead be used to grab a free 7-inch Samsung Galaxy Tab 3, although a two-year data plan through the carrier is required.
Existing AT&T customers can also take advantage of this deal by adding the tablet to an existing Mobile Share data plan for $10 per month with the purchase of a Samsung Galaxy S4, Galaxy S4 Active, Galaxy Note 3 or Galaxy Note 2.
