Samsung to launch Galaxy S4 Zoom, Galaxy S4 mini and Galaxy S4 Ativ this month

Incoming Samsung Galaxy S4 versions revealed with release dates

Samsung is expected to announce three new smartphones by the end of May, the Galaxy S4 Zoom, Galaxy S4 mini and Galaxy S4 Ativ. See also: Samsung Galaxy S4 review.

We've already got the Galaxy S4 and the Galaxy Mega coming but plenty more devices are on their way from Samsung, according to SamMobile. The Galaxy S4 Zoom's release date will be in June while the Galaxy S4 mini and Galaxy S4 Ativ will be released in July.

The Samsung Galaxy Zoom is rumoured to sport a 16Mp camera and a 4.3in qHG SuperAMOLED screen. It will have 8GB of internal storage, a microSD card slot, Wi-Fi, A-GPS, Bluetooth 4.0 and run on Android Jelly Bean. It's unknown whether the smartphone will have a dual-core or quad-core processor.

We've known about the Galaxy S4 mini for a while, of which a photo was leaked recently. Specifications include 4.3in SuperAMOLED qHD screen, a 1.6GHz dual-core processor and Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean with TouchWiz Nature UX 2.0.

Little is known about the Galaxy S4 Ativ apart from that it will supposedly by a ruggedised version of the Galaxy S4. It will therefore be waterproof and dustproof like the Sony Xperia Z.

The news comes as the Galaxy S4 is due to be investigated on BBC's Watchdog for its storage issues. In a teaser for the upcoming show, Anne Robinson says "Samsung, it claims its brand new Galaxy phone has an extra-large memory, but what did it forget to mention?"

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

STYLISTIC Q572

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
