Another Call-Making Samsung Camera

E-mail Print PDF

Samsung follows the Galaxy S 4 Zoom by grafting improved camera optics on a better smartphone-- resulting in the Galaxy K Zoom, essentially a Galaxy S5 variant with a 20.7MP sensor and 10x optical zoom.

Galaxy K ZoomThe K Zoom carries a 4.8-inch 1280x720 resolution display, runs on Android 4.4 and features camera-focused software such as a "selfie alarm" and a Pro Suggest mode for optimised photo filters.

Oddly enough it is powered by two processors (one quad-core 1.3GHz, the other dual-core 1.7GHz) together with 2GB RAM and 8GB built-in storage. It also includes all familiar Samsung software additions, such as the S-Health suite.

The 24-240mm f/3.1 lens is retractable (thus the thick design) and includes optical image stabilisation, while the 1/2.3-inch CMOS sensor also shoots 720p video.

Samsung does not give any European availability details as yet, but it should hit our markets sometime this year.
