Here comes the most talked about smartphone from Korean tech giant. Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom U.K. release date is set for July 8 with £440 price tag.

Are you waiting for Samsung’s Galaxy S4 Zoom cameraphone? It is to arrive in the U.K. on July 8, 2013. Independent online retailer Clove has showed up the device for pre-order, pledging that it will be shipped in a week. Its price tag for the Galaxy S4 cameraphone rests at £440 and it may change when it is available for grabs.

Well, the smartphone-glued-to-camera has everything that an Android Jelly Bean phone can offer. But, it is known for its huge 16MP 10x optical camera with Xenon flash. From just being a smartphone, it is a digital camera also. A user can replace a smartphone and camera with the device, which will be priced as much as a smartphone.

The Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom is a critical threat to Nokia’s upcoming EOS cameraphone, also known as Lumia 1020. Nokia has announced a press event for July 11 in New York City evidently to announce this device that is said to mount a 41MP PureView sensor with all advanced attributes that a camera should have.

If rumors are true, it’ll be the first Windows Phone handset to have such a big camera. It might be taking on the Android-based Galaxy S4 Zoom in this regard. On the other hand, Sony is also expected to come forward with a cameraphone called the Xperia Honami that is likely to mount a 20MP rear camera with Xenon flash and a larger sensor.

Overall, in a few weeks, we are going to get two aggressive rivals to the Galaxy S4 Zoom. Both the Nokia EOS or Lumia 1020 and Xperia Honami will be rivaling the Samsung machine as a cameraphone. And people will get a lot of choices to pick from also.
