Samsung’s camera meets smartphone, the Galaxy K Zoom, was announced last month as the successor to the Galaxy S4 Zoom from last year. And now you can pre-order one, if you’re in the UK that is.
Samsung itself has started taking pre-orders for the device via its UK-based website. The price you’ll need to pay is £400. However, according to Android Beat you can use the promo code NPR-14G-QKY-WSZ and get 10% off that amount. So after you apply the code, you’ll only need to pay £360 for the Galaxy K Zoom.
It’s slated to start shipping on May 29, which is a bit later than the ‘mid-May’ release time frame we’ve previously heard. But what can you do, delays happen and all that.
The UK pricing compares favorably to the recommended retail price for Germany that we told you about a few weeks ago. £400 is around €493 at the current exchange rates, while the K Zoom will be sold for €519 in the Eurozone.
The Samsung Galaxy K Zoom comes with a 4.8-inch 720p HD Super AMOLED touchscreen, a 20.7 MP BSI rear camera with OIS, Xenon flash, 1080p video recording, and 10x optical zoom, a 2 MP front camera, a hexa-core Samsung Exynos processor (1.7 GHz dual-core plus 1.3 GHz quad-core), 2 GB of RAM, 8 GB of internal storage, microSD card support, 4G LTE, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, GPS, NFC, and a 2,430 mAh battery. It runs Android 4.4 KitKat.
