Galaxy K

Ahead of Samsung's K-themed event in Asia, more images of the Korean manufacturers next camera focused smartphone have leaked out. Previously referred to as the Galaxy S5 Zoom, the new moniker is reportedly the Galaxy K – which would tie in nicely to the forthcoming event – and it has that distinctive optical zoom lens on the back.

Perhaps more importantly, this device looks to be slimmer than its predecessor, the Galaxy S4 zoom, which is important since it's supposed to be a phone as well as a camera. The Galaxy S4 zoom was far too cumbersome to use as an everyday smartphone, whereas this looks much more manageable.

Camera specs are rumored to be 20MP with a 10x zoom, while it's said to house a Samsung Exynos SoC, 2GB of RAM and Android 4.4.2 KitKat. None of which sounds out of the ordinary for a device like this. We'll have to hang on a little while longer for anything official, but it's looking more and more likely by the day.

Samsung's alleged Galaxy K camera phone leaks out again


Who cares if it's ugly, after a month there will be enough 3rd party cases you can cover it up. If the pictures are good and I can work on it, I'm in,.

I am with you, I am so tired of people putting form over function. I have a fast moving kid that my G2 can barely keep up with, if this has a good sports mode and can capture really fast moving objects I'm in. I could care less if people thinks it looks cool, I care if it fits my needs. Cant wait for the announcement to see how it compares

Looks good in my opinion, it's slightly curved and the camera hump doesn't seem to be huge. It looks much better than last years model which was a complete abomination.
