Hope this makes sense.
To the best of my knowledge all Samsung phones do have this, it just works differently...for instance the s3 once you zoomed in you had to double tap...the s4 I have to pinch zoom, the Note 2 double tap etc etc where on other phones you just zoom in and it is "wrapped"

I believe the proper term is "reflow"

There were rumors that Apply had a patent on reflow, that it was part of the suit filed against Samsung, and that is why Samsung was forced to make it less user friendly/different. I never confirmed this though.
