Samsung's latest camera-centric smartphone, the Galaxy K Zoom, is now available for pre-order in the UK via Samsung's official e-store. The website lists that all pre-orders will begin shipping from May 29.
Available in blue, black and white, the Galaxy K Zoom sports a price tag of £400 (around $670). If you are interested in picking up the smartphone, you can avail a 10 percent discount by entering the following promo code: NPR-14G-QKY-WSZ. While the £400 is a bit steep, the price of the device should come down once it launches on third-party retailers like Amazon.
The Galaxy K Zoom launched at the end of last month in Singapore and features a 20.7 MP 1/2.3-inch CMOS camera sensor with BSI and a Xenon flash. Other specs include a 4.8-inch 720p screen, hexa-core Exynos 5 Hexa 5260 SoC (two 1.7GHz Cortex-A15, four 1.3GHz Cortex-A7 cores), 2 GB RAM, 8 GB internal memory, microSD (up to 64 GB ), LTE Cat 4 connectivity, Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.0 LE, MicroUSB 2.0 and a 2430 mAh battery. The device also runs Android 4.4.2 KitKat out of the box.
Featuring a textured back similar to that of the Galaxy S5 and a retractable camera lens, the Galaxy K Zoom is a much better camera/smartphone hybrid when compared to its predecessor, the Galaxy S4 Zoom. Are you interested in buying the Galaxy K Zoom? Sound off in the comments below.
