Samsung has said that the Galaxy K zoom smartphone, which was announced back in April last year and released a couple of months later, will not be getting the Android 5.0 Lollipop update. The device currently runs Android version 4.4.2 (KitKat).
@ahmetgngr13 We don’t like to be the bearer of bad news, but the Galaxy Zoom will not be receiving the Lollipop update.— Samsung Mobile UK (@SamsungMobileUK) August 2, 2015
The information was revealed by the UK arm of the South Korean company through a tweet (see above). However, there was no information on exactly why the update has been cancelled.
Just like the Galaxy S4 zoom - its predecessor, the Galaxy K zoom also combines a regular smartphone with the hardware of a point and shoot camera. It features 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).
Other specs include an Exynos 5 Hexa SoC, a 4.8-inch, 1280x720 resolution Super AMOLED display, 2GB RAM, 8GB expandable internal memory, and a 2,430mAh battery.
