Samsung will continue its tradition of launching several variants of its flagship device, including a mini smartphone and a cameraphone. This year, there probably won’t be a Galaxy S5 Active, because the original model is waterproof, but there will surely be a Galaxy S5 Zoom. Or Galaxy K Zoom, as some want to call it.
A picture of the Galaxy K Zoom leaked on the Web yesterday, showing the back side of the device. The first thing you’ll notice is Samsung’s signature faux leather covering, then the big camera sensor, which is actually hidden better than the one of the Galaxy S4 Zoom. There’s also a Xenon flash and the Samsung logo at the bottom of the device.
The camera of the Galaxy K Zoom is tipped at 20MP, meaning it’s got larger megapixel count than the one of its predecessor. It has 10x optical zoom, and as I said before, it’s really ergonomic. The other specs of this device include a 4.8-inch HD display, 1.6GHz quad-core processor or 1.3GHz hexa-core setup with Mali-T624 graphics, depending on the region. It packs 2GB ram and runs on the latest Android 4.4.2 KitKat.
We expect Samsung to drop a word on this device soon.
