Samsung will sell its Galaxy S4 Zoom smartphone in Australia from next week, the company announced today.

The phone will be sold through selected Samsung retail partners and at Samsung Experience Stores in Melbourne and Sydney. It will retail for $699 as an outright-only smartphone.

The Galaxy S4 Zoom will not be sold through traditional carriers like Telstra, Optus and Vodafone.

Samsung describes the S4 Zoom as combining "the stylish heritage of Galaxy S4 devices with photographic capabilities of an optical zoom".

Samsung Australia's vice president of telecommunications, Tyler McGee, said the Galaxy S4 Zoom allows users to share high quality photos.

"We believe that the Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom is the ultimate tool for people who want to use their smartphone to capture and share high quality images quickly and conveniently," he said in a media statement.

"We see the Galaxy S4 Zoom, with its 10x optical zoom and Android operating system, as a great way for people to share great high quality photos quickly and easily."

The Galaxy S4 Zoom was released in various global markets back in June.

The phone has a 16-megapixel CMOS image sensor, uses optical image stabilisation, and comes with a xenon flash rather than the standard LED flash used on most smartphone cameras.

The S4 Zoom also has a 4.3in qHD display with a resolution of 960x540, is powered by a 1.5GHz dual-core processor, has 1.5GB RAM and comes with 8GB of internal storage.
