Samsung’s Galaxy K Zoom, a new cameraphone rocking a 10x optical zoom lens, will hit UK stores on June 1 from £33 a month.
Photo fanatics will be chuffed to hear that Samsung’s Galaxy K Zoom cameraphone, which boasts a 20.7-megapixel camera with 10x optical zoom for up-close shots, will hit UK retailers and providers on June 1. Contracts should begin at £33 a month, a premium price for what appears to be a promising device.
Last year’s Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom was a bitter disappointment, despite packing a similar 10x optical zoom, mostly because it was duff to use as a smartphone. However, the Galaxy K Zoom appears to be much slimmer than the old one, and packs some decent specs.
As well as the 20.7-megapixel snapper, you get a hexacore processor – that’s a quad-core for standard phone operation, and presumably a bonus dual-core chip to handle image processing. Great news, as the S4 Zoom was a little clunky at times. You also get full 4G connectivity for quickly uploading your snaps and video.
Will you be rushing out to buy one? Or waiting for our full review, which is coming shortly?
