Unfortunately, Samsung has not announced any pricing and availability details of the Galaxy K zoom for other markets. The Galaxy K zoom was announced at the company's 'Kapture the Moment' event at the Red Dot Design Museum in Singapore last month.
The Samsung Galaxy K zoom is the second camera specialised-smartphone from the company, the first being the Galaxy S4 Zoom. The Galaxy K zoom sports a 20.7-megapixel BSI CMOS sensor at the back accompanied by a Xenon flash and also features optical image stabilizer (OIS) for low-light imaging. The rear camera supports 10x optical zoom. The rear camera also comes with some advanced camera usability features and functions, including AF/AE Separation (Auto Focus/ Auto Exposure Separation); Pro Suggest mode that offers 5 optimized filter settings, Selfie Alarm offers users to take timed selfies. The Galaxy K zoon also houses a 2-megapixel front-facing camera.
When compared to the Galaxy S4 Zoom that came with 4.3-inch Super AMOLED qHD display, the Galaxy K zoom features a 4.8-inch Super AMOLED HD (720x1280 pixels) display.
The Galaxy K zoom runs Android 4.4 KitKat, much like Samsung's 2014 flagship, the Galaxy S5 (Review | Pictures). The new camera-centric smartphone is powered by a hexa-core processor (a quad-core 1.3GHz and a dual-core 1.7GHz), though the company has not revealed the exact chipset, currently thought to be the Exynos 5 Hexa SoC coupled with a Mali-T264 GPU.
Other specifications include 2GB of RAM, 8GB of inbuilt storage expandable via microSD card (up to 64GB), and a 2430mAh battery. The Galaxy K zoom will be available in two variants - LTE and 3G - while other connectivity options include Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, Micro-USB and NFC.
