Samsung unveils Galaxy K zoom with 20.7MP, 10x optical zoom camera
Samsung has launched its <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/308722==http://www.electronista.com/articles/14/04/23/galaxy.k.10x.optical.zoom.more.than.doubles.phone. thickness/" rel='nofollow'>rumored successor</a> to the <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/308723==http://www.electronista.com/articles/13/06/12/galaxy.camera.follow.up.offers.camera.modes.zoom.r ing/" rel='nofollow'>Galaxy S4 Zoom</a> from last year. The Galaxy K zoom features a similar design language to the <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/308724==http://www.electronista.com/reviews/samsung-galaxy-s5.html" rel='nofollow'>Galaxy S5</a>, but offers an increased focus on the rear camera, switching out the Galaxy S5's 16-megapixel camera for a 20.7-megapixel BSI CMOS sensor with retractable 10x optical zoom and improved photography-related features. <br />
<br />
Offering an ISO range between 100 and 3,200 and 1080p video at 60fps, the Galaxy K zoom has optical image stabilization, a maximum 3fps continuous shooting mode with autofocus, a Xenon flash, AF/AE separation, and Smart and Expert camera modes. A Pro Suggest mode offers five optimized filter settings depending on the shot, object tracing hopes to provide support in focusing on a moving object, and a "Selfie Alarm" will help users take pictures of themselves by advising when they are in the frame of the main camera lens. <br />

On the front is a 4.8-inch 720p Super AMOLED display with a 2-megapixel camera. Inside is a hexa-core 1.3GHz quad-core and 1.7GHz dual-core processor with 2GB of RAM, 8GB of expandable storage running Android 4.4. It also includes Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, NFC, and LTE connectivity, and uses a 2,430mAh battery. <br />

Samsung has yet to reveal the pricing or availability for the Galaxy K zoom.
