Samsung has officially announced the Galaxy K zoom camera phone, the successor to the Galaxy S4 zoom launched last year. Like its predecessor, the Galaxy K zoom combines a regular smartphone with the hardware of a point and shoot camera.

On the camera-side, the Galaxy K zoom has 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 phone has a xenon flash with an LED autofocus assist. On the front is a relatively humble 2 megapixel camera.

On the smartphone side, the Galaxy K zoom has a 4.8-inch, 1280x720 resolution Super AMOLED display, Exynos 5 Hexa SoC with six CPU cores comprising of four 1.3GHz ARM Cortex A7 and two 1.7GHz ARM Cortex A15; along with a Mali-T624 GPU, 2GB RAM, 8GB internal memory with microSD support (up to 64GB), LTE, Bluetooth 4.0, Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n, NFC, 2,430mAh battery and Android 4.4 KitKat.

The Galaxy K zoom will be available in May in black, white and blue for 499.

there was Korean-only Samsung Galaxy K (SHW-M130K) few years ago. and it basically an Galaxy S in different wrapping. so, based on that fact, you can also call this Samsung Galaxy K Zoom as Samsung Galaxy S Zoom.

Meanwhile you have not used it and it will probably one up the S5 for best camera...aside from 1020 and 8o8 of course.

Very disappointing. The sensor size is just 1/2.3 inch when phones like Nokia 808 has bigger sensor size in less bulky body, no intensive LED flash and on full zoom this Galaxy K Zoom camera will allow less light to enter the camera and you'll end up...
