Just recently, Samsung had given the highly anticipated Samsung Galaxy K zoom an official introduction. The stylish and cinematic ad posted online shows off its retractable lens and "advanced digital camera technology". The release comes as no surprise after previously teasing fans from their official Instagram account, in which a short video showed off its capable 10x camera zoom.
The smartphone itself is “camera-specialized” designed to offer professional grade photography with the portability of a mobile. The device is equipped with a retractable lens that allows for an impressive 20.7 megapixel BSI CMOS sensor, an Optical Image Stabilizer, AF/AE separation, and other features.
In terms of specifications the handset includes what we’ve come to expect in a flagship smartphone, including a 1.3GHz Quad-core and 1.7Ghz Dual-core processor (Hexa-core) and 2GB of RAM. Samsung’s well established TouchWiz UX is integrated with Android 4.4 (the same as the Samsung Galaxy S5) which of course comes as no surprise.
The Galaxy K zoom is not as thin as other Galaxy models, however is a massive improvement on the original Zoom released last year. The aim of Samsung was to intertwine the smartphone experience with an impressive camera for taking stunning shots on the go.
Although the company has allowed Nokia to remain at the top of the game with their Lumia 1020, the Galaxy K zoom's attractive exterior and enticing operating system may have drawn in other consumers. The device's cost and availability in the UK is yet to be confirmed, however we suspect we will hear further news regarding the matter soon.
