A new photo of the upcoming Samsung Galaxy K Zoom (formerly known as the Galaxy S5 Zoom) has surfaced, showing the back of the device. Still, you can clearly see the back cover sports the perforated leather-imitating pattern of the Galaxy S5.
You may have also spotted that the cameraphone is wrapped with a protective plastic casing. A listing on a Chinese website shows two of them, a transparent and a blue one. They hint that the left side is clear of any buttons, while the right will hold a Power/Lock key, volume rocker and a camera shutter key.
The photo once again confirms that the camera lens at the back doesn't protrudewhen not in use. That's certainly going to be helpful when using the devices as a phone. The first Galaxy K Zoom photo shows that the Samsung logo is below the camera, while the Xenon flash is above it.
While not really readable on this photo, the first one reveals the Galaxy K Zoom 20MP camera will sport a 10x zoom lens covering the 24-240mm range in 35mm equivalent. The rest of the specifications include a 4.8" 720p display, Android KitKat with Samsung's TouchWiz UI, and a quad-core 1.6 GHz chip or the new Exynos hexa-core with two Cortex-A15 and four Cortex-A7 cores.
Update: A couple of new photos of the Galaxy K Zoom have showed up. This time, their depict the cameraphone with the lens on full zoom.
As I just stated in the Galaxy Beam page. Samsung should combine the Note, S, Beam, and Zoom into one monster!
Sorry Samsung this is too ugly for a camera, phone is not an appropriate word for this.
There is a lot more to a camera than just MegaPixel and sensor size. Obviously the 1020 has an advantage of having many more pixels and size. However actual optics wise there is way more to the story and the Zoom holds some good ground.
