For the moment, a phone with a 10x zoom lens is still going to be thicker than a phone with a fixed focal length.

Samsung redesigned the lens so that some of it is in the phone's body.

The Galaxy K's 4.8-inch screen is bigger and nicer than the S4 Zoom's (right).

The zoom lens can be controlled either by pinching in and out on the screen or the volume buttons on the right side.

New to the Zoom is the capability to select separate autofocus and autoexposure points.

The Selfie Alarm lets you tell the camera where to expect to find your face and once it locks on the camera gives off a series of beeps so that you smile pretty before it takes three shots. You get to pick the one you like the most.

The Galaxy K Zoom can record video in full HD at either 30 frames per second or 60fps.

The availability focus is on Asian markets first, with Singapore specifically being an important launch market. Samsung isn't ruling out a US launch, but there are currently no US plans.
