Samsung has officially announced their Galaxy K zoom camera phone which is the successor to the Galaxy S4 zoom which was only launched last year. Similar to what was featured on the predecessor, the new K zoom is also going to bring a mix of a regular smartphone with the hardware of a point and shoot camera. The camera setup forms the most dominant part of this phone and everyone would be interested in it. It appears to be quite impressive with a 20.7 megapixel 1/2.3 BSI CMOS sensor and a 10x, 24-240mm F3.1-6.3 zoom lens with optical image stabilization (OIS). The camera has been paired with a xenon flash with an LED autofocus assist. The front facing camera however has rather been placed more humbly at merely 2 MP. The phone is going to be available next month for sale at a price of €499.
Moving on the technical specs of the phone, there is a 4.8 inch Super AMOLED display with a 1280x720 resolution. The phone is powered by Exynos 5 Hexa SoC with six CPU cores which comprise of four 1.3GHz ARM Cortex A7 and two 1.7GHz ARM Cortex A15 and all this comes along with a Mali-T624 GPU. There is 2 GB worth of RAM and a good enough 8 GB internal memory with support for the microSD for up to 64 GB of storage. Other features which have been packed inside the phone include LTE connectivity, Bluetooth 4.0, Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n, NFC, 2,430mAh battery and Android 4.4 KitKat.
