The Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom was one of the more interesting devices to come from Samsung last year. Combining the general shape of the Galaxy S4 with more of a photography focus was an intriguing combination, and at the very least, an impressive niche product. Whatever you thought of it, Samsung is obviously confident enough to follow that device up with this year’s offering, the Samsung Galaxy K Zoom.
The Galaxy K Zoom combines the design and look of a fully functional Galaxy S5 smartphone with a 20.7MP camera lens with 10x optical zoom. In addition to the beefy camera specs, the Galaxy K Zoom also benefits from OIS which should help immensely with stabilizing images and videos. The 4.8-inch device is more than just a pretty face, however, as it possesses a hexacore Exynos 5 Hexa processor, 2GM RAM, Android 4.4 and a 2,430mAh battery. What’s probably most interesting is that Samsung didn’t name the devices the Galaxy S5 Zoom, possibly implying that they don’t necessarily want the Zoom line to be inherently tied to their flagship releases. Whatever the truth, it looks like Galaxy Zoom devices are here to stay, for now.
