    Default Chances of an S5 Zoom?

    I'm no sales expert, but it strikes me that the S4 Zoom wasn't a huge seller (although it was definitely a niche item). What do you think the chances are of an S5 Zoom? Would anyone be interested in one?

    Well, the Galaxy Gear, according to many was a flop in terms of sales, and yet it was the biggest-selling smartwatch of the year, enough to warrant a sequel (even if the rumors point to it being Tizen-powered and not Android-powered).

    As for the Zoom... I just couldn't see myself getting the S4 one, and the idea still remains for the S5 if it comes out. It's just too bulky for it to be a phone. If it was bulky all throughout the body, like an 'old' phone, then I'd be OK, but this thing is thin on the sides and huge on the middle... I can't imagine using that comfortably. But like you say, this is a niche item after all.

    I think the Zoom did better in Europe and Asia, than here.

    Knowing Samsung, they'd do it.

    Samsung will probably update their zoom line of smartphones, but currently, I see no reason for typing it's name to the S line of phones. They don't even share any common traits or features!
