The Galaxy S4 Zoom's release date will be in June while the Galaxy S4 mini and Galaxy S4 Ativ will be released in July. See also: Galaxy S4 Zoom specs, UK price, release date.

The Samsung Galaxy Zoom is rumoured to sport a 16Mp camera and a 4.3in qHG SuperAMOLED screen. It will have 8GB of internal storage, a microSD card slot, Wi-Fi, A-GPS, Bluetooth 4.0 and run on Android Jelly Bean. It's unknown whether the smartphone will have a dual-core or quad-core processor.

We've known about the Galaxy S4 mini for a while, of which a photo was leaked recently. Specifications include 4.3in SuperAMOLED qHD screen, a 1.6GHz dual-core processor and Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean with TouchWiz Nature UX 2.0.

Little is known about the Galaxy S4 Ativ apart from that it will supposedly by a ruggedised version of the Galaxy S4. It will therefore be waterproof and dustproof like the Sony Xperia Z.

The news comes as the Galaxy S4 is due to be investigated on BBC's Watchdog for its storage issues. In a teaser for the upcoming show, Anne Robinson says "Samsung, it claims its brand new Galaxy phone has an extra-large memory, but what did it forget to mention?"
