The latest toy folks working for the FCC got to play with is the still unannounced Samsung Galaxy S5 Zoom. The device marked as SM-C115 gotta be Sammy’s upcoming camera-phone, boasting a 4.8-inch Super AMOLED 720p HD screen, Samsung’s own Exynos 5 Hexa chip, 2GB of RAM and LTE connectivity support. Alas the version getting the regulatory approval doesn’t seem to support the right LTE bands – the filing only mentions LTE band 2 and band 5, both of which aren’t widely used in the U.S. So this could be an international variant of the phone rather than the one that will be offered by major U.S. carriers.
The camera, as we’ve heard before, will rock a 20.2-megapixel sensor, 10x optical zoom, optical image stabilization and Xenon Flash. When compared to the still-current Galaxy S4 Zoom, the new model will have a slimmer body, making it easier to carry around.
Again, we’ve no clue when Samsung will officially launch this Galaxy S5 variant and can only hope this will happen sooner rather than later. More to come, obviously.
