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.
