The digital world has gotten used to news of giant phone makers releasing giant 5-7 inches Smartphones. But when a phone with a giant protruding camera is released, it sure becomes something to gawk at. That is exactly what Samsung has done when it unveiled the Samsung Galaxy K Zoom on 29th April.
It seems Samsung is obsessed with the idea of being the first to provide people with a talking camera. For now, it seems hell bent on overtaking Nokia Lumia’s 1020’s titled as the best camera smartphone. The K Zoom is a sequel to last year’s Galaxy Zoom, and the new phone is sleeker and slimmer. In other words, Samsung is trying to bring together a high-end camera and a high-end Smartphone with the Galaxy Zoom.
Obviously, the big news here is the whopping 20.7 MP BSI CMOS sensor camera with 10x optical zoom. It also features an Optical Image Stabilizer (OIS) to reduce blur caused by movement to ensure you can produce pictures and videos that are clear and crisp while on the go. With this camera, you will be getting better quality images, thanks to its Xenon Flash that provides a brighter light than the standard LEDS. In other words, the major differentiating factor of the new Smartphone is that it integrates the most advanced camera technology.
Given the fact that this phone is a sequel to last year’s model–Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom—it was thought that this version would be named Samsung Galaxy S5 Zoom, but Samsung chose Galaxy K Zoom for one reason: the K denotes the different line from the South Korean brand. This means Samsung has decided to make it the start of a new segment. So, if Samsung is pleased with the performance of the new phone, its next release might be Galaxy K2, who knows?
