Samsung Galaxy K Zoom

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.

Certainly better designed than the S4 zoom. But I have the Z2 and if I wanted a better camera then I would opt for a dslr.

But not to bad Samsung :-)

It's the same sensor used in the Sony Xperia Z2.

I think ppl would get this for the optical zoom. Not the sensor.

Verizon?

Ordered mine tonight for delivery on Monday. Been waiting for this as it offers more for me than the S5 does which had pointless features attached. And as suggested it was the optical zoom that did it for me, I use my S3 for taking photos all the time, so the K-Zoom is good upgrade path and lets me stick with Samsung Galaxy phones has I have since the original S1.
