South Korean giant Samsung unveiled its Galaxy K Zoom during an event in Singapore on April 29, 2014. The latest device from Samsung is the successor to its popular Galaxy Camera 2 and combines a smartphone’s features and a full-featured point and shoot camera.


It has been reported that the K Zoom device utilizes components which are similar to the ones found in the high-end Galaxy phones and it is powered by Android KitKat. However, the biggest difference between the handsets is the imaging hardware, while the design is also somewhat different. The new K Zoom weighs 200 grams and is 20 mm thick. The latest device by Samsung will be available in various markets across the globe – including India – in the upcoming months.

So far, the company did not specify any date of the launch in India. The senior vice president of Mobile Communications Business at Samsung Electronics, Sun Hong Lim said “With the introduction of the Galaxy K Zoom, Samsung continues to demonstrate our commitment to creating products that meet the diverse demands of our consumers”. The K Zoom features a 10X zoom with a xenon flash.

When it comes to focal length, the K Zoom’s lens covers 24 to 240 mm. The device uses an image sensor based on the BSI technology and optical image stabilization.
