Samsung somewhat introduced its wireless charger, Qi, last weekend at the FCC. However, more than impressing spectators, questions about which devices the Qi will be paired to have emerged. Moreover, how they will market the Qi-on its own or along with other Samsung devices is another question that interested people at the event. Most likely, it will be paired with an upcoming device to take advantage of the hype.
Aside from issues with how and when, somehow, Qi is expected to bypass Android OEM compatibility issues with accessories that are created by other manufacturers like Samsung. It will really be a big milestone if Samsung becomes successful in this perspective.
This charging system is interesting and is quite beneficial for many users. Also, other smartphone makers have already followed suit. In time, this type of charging method will be the norm and be used by all carriers.
Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom has being approved by the Federal Communications Commission.

As far as the camera department is concerned, rumors are claiming that the Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom will boast a 16MP rear facing camera with 10x optical zoom.

An surprise Samsung SM-G7102 come to the FCC for testing and it is user agent profile is on Samsung's site. The G7102 is definitely an Android 4.3 Jelly Bean smartphone having a 5.25" 720p screen.
Regardless of the relatively low pixel density from the screen (288ppi), the processor clockspeed shows up as 2.3GHz, which could simply be a quad-core Snapdragon 800 chipset. It's a pretty big device, calculating 147 x 75.1mm.
The FCC paperwork don't emerge and express it, but Samsung SM-G7102 seems to become a dual-SIM device. What this means is it'll most likely launch in East Asia first, possibly like a low-cost option to the twin-SIM Universe Note 3.
