It looks like Nokia plans to make the camera the focal point of its upcoming new flagship Lumia 928 once again, but this time around it could be in even worse shape than before. Relatively slow sales of the Lumia 920 compared to other leading smartphones showed us that a fresh OS and a killer camera simply aren’t enough to entice users to switch away from Android and iOS. Nokia appears to be beating the same drum all over again with the upcoming Lumia 928 though, and what little appeal the handset’s camera features might have to consumers at large could be overshadowed almost immediately by Samsung’s upcoming Galaxy S4 Zoom.

According to recent reports, the Galaxy S4 Zoom will begin rolling out early next month. If recent rumors end up panning out, that doesn’t give Nokia a lot of time to pitch its Lumia 928 as the biggest and best camera phone on the market.

Samsung’s upcoming Galaxy S4 Zoom reportedly features a new 16-megapixel camera along with a 4.3-inch qHD display and Android Jelly Bean. Now, according to a new report from Hi-Tech.Mail.Ru, it also features 10x optical zoom, which would be hugely appealing to mobile photogs.
The Lumia 928 might take great photos in low light, but it certainly doesn’t seem as appealing as a Galaxy S4 variant with a 16-megapixel camera and 10x optical zoom.
