After all the leaks, rumors and speculations, Samsung has finally unveiled its new Galaxy K Zoom smartphone for users. And as the name suggests, the new device puts a lot of focus on the in-device camera.
Arriving as a successor to the company's Galaxy S4 Zoom smartphone launched last year, Samsung unveiled the device at an event in Singapore.
The Samsung Galaxy K zoom is set to be available in multiple color variants such as Charcoal Black, Shimmery White and Electric Blue with textured casing for firm grip.
And although online reports suggest that the new smartphone will go on sale globally in May 2014, Samsung is yet to shed any light on the pricing and availability of the handset as yet.
The Galaxy K zoom offers a 4.8-inch Super AMOLED display offering an HD resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels. It is powered by Hexa-Core (1.7 GHz Dual Core + 1.3 GHz Quad Core) Exynos (5260) processor and Mali-T624 GPU coupled with 2GB RAM.
The device comes loaded with Android 4.4 (KitKat) OS with the latest Samsung Touchwiz UX. As said earlier, the camera-centric handset uses a 20.7MP rear camera with Xenon Flash, BSI Sensor, OIS and 10x optical zoom. It is capable of shooting 1080p video at 60 fps.
Moreover, the copmany has also used a 2MP front-facing shooter to offer video calling and taking selfies. It has AF/AE Separation (Auto Focus/ Auto Exposure Separation), Pro Suggest with 5 optimized filter settings, Selfie Alarm to take timed selfies, object tracing and more.
But while all that sounds pretty impressive, what are the features which actually make the device stand out among the rest? Let's take a look at the top 5 features of the device.
Since the new KitKat platform is the newest standard in Android, it's only expected that the new device will come running the latest Android platform. And it's absolutely amazing to run the latest version of Android on a device that boasts great specs.
As the name suggests, the Galaxy K Zoom comes with a massive camera sporting a camera sensor of 20.7 MP. And while there are a number of devices in the market offering more or less the same camera, this one is expected to go a step ahead of the previous Galaxy S4 zoom and offer better clarity.
The Galaxy K zoom draws its energy from a 2,430mAh battery. And that's enough for the device to run Samsung's proprietary apps like Ultra Power Saving Mode, S Health Lite, Studio app and more.
The South Korean smartphone maker have employed a wide range of connectivity options in this device which include 4G LTE/3G HSPA+, Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac, Wi-Fi Direct, DLNA, Bluetooth v4.0 LE, aGPS + GLONASS and NFC.
