The camera-focused  Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom is set to cost £440 and could be in your hands in just over a week.

Online shop Clove says the S4 Zoom will hit shelves on 8 July, a week on Monday -- the day before Nokia unveils its hotly-tipped Nokia Lumia EOS 1020 photoblower.

The 16MP Zoom is set to go head-to-head with the Lumia when Nokia unveils what is rumoured to be a whopping 41-megapixel snapper. Previously known as the Nokia Lumia EOS, the phone is expected to be named as the Nokia Lumia 1020 , and will be announced on Tuesday in New York.

We're expecting the S4 Zoom will also be available on contracts with the major phone networks, although no-one has confirmed exact details yet. 

On one side, the S4 Zoom looks like a regular dog and bone, with a 4.3-inch screen and Android 4.2 Jelly Bean software. Flip it over though, and it looks like a compact camera, complete with 10x optical zoom lens.

Inside is a dual-core 1.5GHz processor and roughly 5GB of storage. It's a 4G device, to zap your snaps to your social networks in double-quick time.

The Zoom is just one of a range of spin-offs to the S4, including the waterproof S4 Active and the Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini , on sale this weekend.

Are you impressed by the S4 Zoom, or are you holding out for the 41-megapixel Nokia? Tell me your thoughts in the comments or on our Facebook page.
