Samsung Galaxy K Zoom specs

The Samsung Galaxy K Zoom is part smartphone, part camera — and one hell of an interesting product. It's got a 20.7-megapixel sensor sitting atop a 4.8-inch smartphone running Android 4.4 KitKat. It's got all the connectivity you'd expect in a modern device. And while it departs a bit from your typical smartphone design — mainly because it's got a rather large (by most smartphone standards, anyway) camera on the back, it's still a sexy looking device.

And here we have the complete Galaxy K Zoom specs.

8gb internal ? Why oh why Samsung..

NoNexus says:

Because it is a camera that can save to the external SD card, and then a phone. Not really the other way around

nicocassa1 says:

i understand what you mean, still, why not make it a 16gb device ? there's not a lot of people that use 2 phones

TurboFool says:

Still doesn't excuse it. Knowing their software, there'll be about 4GB free at most for apps. Not a remotely reasonable amount.

Screen and processor from s3?

NoNexus says:

Yeah specs are disappointing at the very least. More like crap if you really want to get to it

I didn't know Samsung was making a hexcore processor 2 years ago.

jayjay234 says:

Since when did s3 have a hexacore? The benchmark on this actually is very close to GS5 or GS4 bc it has 720p.

darkoman4 says:

Really? Putting 8 GB in a 2014 the only optical zoom smartphone is travesty.

DJCBS says:

So... Since TouchWiz takes around 8GB out of the 16GB on the S5... This phone doesn't have internal memory, right? Or could it be that, by some miracle, Samsung is shipping this with stock Android?

I see what you did there...

TenshiNo says:

The Galaxy S phones have a "backup copy" of the original firmware that the device ships with. This allows the device to be restored completely to stock, even when the OS has been corrupted to the point where the device can't reboot. This backup accounts for a good chunk of that lost space, I'm sure. The system also generally reserves some blank space for unpacking OTA's and such. Not to mention any carrier bloatware and such. Samsung could have easily paired down how much internal space they're using on something like this.

Gearu says:

720p screen & 8gb onboard. rip.
Would like to know how the camera compares to the Nokia N8's in the usual compared conditions (it had a larger-than-what-you-usually-get-lumbered-with sensor).

Skyway says:

No 4k recording? Why does the s5 have that option and this doesn't? That just seems weird to me

Decent specs for a camera.
Not so decent for a phone.

Good thing its a camera.

Is it ? I think more of it about a phone. It depends with which phone you will compare it. For example, for me it's a big improvement regarding the previous one http://versus.com/en/samsung-galaxy-k-zoom-vs-samsung-galaxy-s4-zoom, also in specs for a phone (eg. cpu clock speed) The question is : how important is the camera for you in a phone and what use will you do of your cell?

TechZOnline says:

The memory card support is wanting as well, ideally it ought to support the new 128GB cards, since they're touting it as a camera phone AND providing almost nothing in terms of internal storage. The screen is also rather pitiful for what I'm sure is not going to be a cheap device.

retsaw says:

It probably will work with a 128GB microsd card. There shouldn't be any hardware or software change needed to support 128 over 64, it would probably work up to something like 2TB when we have the tech to make them. They probably only list 64GB cards as supported because I don't think Samsung currently sell 128GB cards.

Battle for the best Camera Phone in the World
Battle for the best camera phone has begun. Owing to this fact, the race to bring the best camera is hot and bloody. Many contendors have come to arena to win this title. But, the Winner stands alone!

The latest gadget in this trend is from Samsung with its Galaxy K Zoom with a 10X Optical zoom. To many the greatest chink in any camera phone’s armour is the lack of an optical zoom and Samsung seems hit the right nerve and hard enough to cover all the ground there. So, Is the most hyped and coveted title is aclaimed by Samsung? Let’s optically zoom into the matter to get more detailed picture.

The Samsung Legacy

Not new to this market, Samsung has actually tried two different products before this from both sides of the line. There was the Galaxy Zoom Camera and the Galaxy S4 Zoom phone.
Of this the S4 Zoom is the one who has more similar traits to Galaxy K Zoom . Samsung though has made it quite clear the K Zoom isn’t the successor but a brand new line-up (BTW, adding to your knowledge that the featured K stands for Kamera, a Swiss word for camera!).
S4 Zoom was a mindblowing product for its time but didn’t set the market on fire. The problems which took it down were its bulk, its human engineering, the realisation that it was almost impossible to use as a phone, its low power life and most notable point, the fact that it didn’t do much beyond the optical zoom part! The K Zoom is the updated version of S4 Zoom and takes care of all its limitations.

Samsung Galaxy K Zoom

Frankly speaking, the K Zoom won’t win any beauty contests. Not because it’s a bad looking phone but because its just so Samsungish in design. This stubbornness on the part of Samsung to continue with a design philosophy that is three generations old perplexes me. Have you noticed how even in their advertisements for the Galaxy S5, they only show the back and not the front of the phone?
It seems even their art and advertising department is embarrassed and only shows the part of the phone that looks different. Anyway, The K has a rubberised dimpled back, is much thinner than the S4 Zoom at 20mm, lighter at 200 grams and has faux chrome on the sides.
The innards are solid with a Exynos hexa-core processor, a 1.3GHz quad-core chipset and a 1.7GHz dual-core processor, a 4.8-inch Super AMOLED display at 720p, 2GB of RAM, 8GB internal storage, microSD card support up to 64GB, a 2,430 mAh battery and runs Android 4.4 KitKat.
The startling shocks are that it is not Full HD, has only 8GB internal storage and comes with a pretty poor battery. Surprisingly,neither the non-full HD camera nor low internal storage ruins the optical performance.
