Samsung’s June 20th event is fast approaching and we’ve had a pretty good idea on what the Korean manufacturer plans to unveil. One of the rumored devices is a “Samsung Galaxy Zoom” — part Galaxy Camera, and part Galaxy smartphone. The fellas at SamMobile were able to nab an exclusive press shot of the device and in the process, revealed its true name: Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom.

The device looks to bring everything you love about a fully functional “Galaxy” smartphone, only we’re not so sure if the Zoom is worthy of the “S4” name. More like a “Galaxy Camera Mini,” the Galaxy S4 Zoom features a 4.3-inch qHD display, 1.6GHz (unspecified) processor, 8GB of internal storage with micro SD card slot up to 64GB, and runs on Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean. Not bad specs — especially for a camera — but not exactly what we were expecting.

Honestly, I wouldn’t be surprised if some folks would be more willing to rock the previous Samsung Galaxy Camera given it’s much higher specs. In any case, we should learn more about the S4 Zoom — as well as US availability — when the device is announced on June 20th.
