Following Samsung’s love for point & shoot and smartphone hybrids, the company releases a new smartphone called the Galaxy K Zoom, and as the name suggests, it has a 20.7 megapixel sensor capable of 10x optical zoom along with a good set of smartphone internals.
Software and hardware considered, there is a lot of similarities that you can find here with the Samsung Galaxy S5 – from the Android software tweaks to the design pattern on the back. Being a camera-centric smartphone, Samsung has included more exclusive camera features with the K Zoom such as Pro Suggest and Selfie Alarm, and it also packs optical image stabilization (OIS).
As for the smartphone side, the Samsung Galaxy K Zoom packs a 4.8-inch 720p Super AMOLED display, a hexacore CPU (4+2), 2GB RAM, and a 2,430mAh battery. The front-facing camera is at 2 megapixels, and the apeture for the main 1/2.3″ sensor is at f/3.1 – 6.3.
The Samsung Galaxy K Zoom will be available in black, blue and white color variants and will be available globally this May.
