Samsung unveiled the Galaxy S4 Zoom earlier this month, a tweaked version of the original Galaxy S4 with a 16-megapixel sensor and 10x optical zoom.

It’s a spiritual successor to the original Galaxy camera, combining the Android mobile operating system and its extensive range of photo-editing apps with a more robust lens and flash.

The camera is powered by a 1.5GHz dual-core processor and offers a 4.3-inch qHG super AMOLED touchscreen (at a 960×540 resolution) for taking pictures and sharing them on the Web.

TNW had the opportunity to go hands-on with the device at Samsung’s ‘Premiere 2013′ event in London today, and have uploaded a selection of images to give you a better idea of what the new hardware looks like.
