Samsung's first attempt at producing a dedicated camera phone didn't go well with potential buyers.
Now, unfazed by negative criticism, Samsung is all set to introduce a lean and slim looking Galaxy S5 Zoom on April 29 in Singapore.
Just a week back, the first alleged sample for the Samsung Galaxy S5 Zoom had appeared on the web. Now we have more evidence to prove that Samsung is indeed coming up the Galaxy K Zoom or the Galaxy S5 Zoom as it could end up being called.
Today, leaked images straight out of China have surfaced of what could be Samsung's most happening device waiting to get launched on April 29. The handset in question is none other than the Galaxy S5 Zoom. Believe it or not, the Galaxy K Zoom appears to be compact, and of course slimmer than its predecessor.
Interestingly, we can see same dimple textured faux-leather back and a flashier shiny plastic chassis found on the Galaxy S5. The beauty of the Galaxy S5 Zoom is its ability to retain the 10x zoom lens, despite having an unconventional design. Going by the leaked pictures, the Galaxy K Zoom is wrapped in a soft silicon case; however, we cannot judge exact dimensions at this moment.
Right now, Samsung is trying to hide the Galaxy S5 Zoom from media cameras. On one hand the South Korean giant has made efforts to make the Galaxy K Zoom as slim as possible but the alleged leaked spec sheet isn't appealing. The specifications we're seeing here are likely to be closer to the Samsung's Note 3 Neo, barring the display and camera. The Galaxy K Zoom will feature a 4.8-inch Super AMOLED 720p HD display, a Hexa-Core CPU, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of internal memory, a microSD card slot, a 20MP rear-facing camera, 10x Zoom, and more.
Again the specs here are not much of importance, as the Galaxy K Zoom will be projected as a camera phone. Samsung has already sent invites to media for a grand launch of the Galaxy K Zoom, scheduled to happen in Singapore.
The original Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom (SM-C1010) is now available at a discounted price of Rs. 23,999 through various online retailers.
