Like a photographic print slowly revealing itself in the darkroom, the first glimpses of the rumoured Samsung Galaxy K Zoom are appearing online.
Samsung promises "a new mobile product" at a launch event one week from today in Singapore. The launch is teased with the tagline "Kapture the moment", hinting at both the photo-focused nature of the device and the K in the name.
The K Zoom cameraphone is rumoured to be a 20-megapixel job with a 10x optical zoom and a xenon flash. That's an improvement over the 16-megapixel setup in Samsung's current Galaxy cameraphone with the emphasis on the camera, the Galaxy S4 Zoom. In the leaked snap, the zoom lens and the body of the device appear to be slimmed-down from the S4's Zoom more bulbous frame.
The K Zoom is also set to sport a 2-megapixel camera for video chat on the front -- or is it the back? Depends if you think this is a camera or a phone.
Word around the campfire is that the K Zoom will sport a 4.8-inch Super AMOLED high-definition screen, with a six-core Samsung Exynos 5 Hexa processor and 2GB of RAM underneath. It's expected to run Android 4.4.2 KitKat software.
