The Galaxy S5 Zoom is now being called the Samsung Galaxy K, or at least it will be when it launches on the 29th of April at an event in Singapore. The phone-camera or camera-phone whichever way you look at it, has appeared in leaks in the past, but it’s been shown off again overnight.
Unfortunately there’s no rear shots, but that zoom lens is going to be the main focus of interest for most people. As you can see it looks pretty well designed, with the Zoom fairly prominent and bulging out the front of the phone, but it looks to sit fairly flush when not in use.
We’ll see more of the Galaxy K on the 29th of April, but we already know some things about the hardware thanks to previous leaks. Expect the Galaxy K to have :
- 4.8″ Super AMOLED 720p display
- Samsung Exynos 5 5260 Hexa-Core processor
- 2GB RAM
- 20MP Rear Camera, with 10x optical zoom, Xenon flash and 2MP front-facing camera
- Android 4.4.2 KitKat.
What price it will be and whether we’ll see it here in Australia is unknown, but we’ll be watching the launch with interest and following up with Samsung Australia asap.
