Samsung again blends camera and phone philosophies with the Galaxy K Zoom

Continuing the blueprint established by the S4 Zoom last year, Samsung has introduced the Galaxy K zoom, which despite grabbing different branding is a successor to the former handset. It is being described as a camera specialized smartphone thanks to its advanced image-clicking attributes.

Fitted into its 16.6mm thick body is a retracting lens-equipped camera setup featuring 10x optical zoom and a 20.7MP BSI CMOS sensor. A xenon flash has also been provided to this device, aside from technologies like AF/AE Separation for balancing of light and clarity, Pro Suggest for offering optimized filter settings and Selfie Alarm for clicking timed self-portraits.

Despite it not being a Galaxy S5 cousin, it does grab some features of the Samsung flagship. These include the Ultra Power Saving Mode for saving battery juice, the S Health Lite app for fitness tracking and the Studio app for editing photographs.

As far the specs of the Samsung Galaxy K zoom are concerned, they are highlighted by a 4.8-inch 720p HD Super AMOLED display and a hexa core CPU setup including a 1.3GHz quad core processor and a 1.7GHz dual core processor. It runs on the Android 4.4 KitKat OS of course.
