Alleged Galaxy K cameraphone pictures appear, with the 10x zoom lens all the way out
We had the first claimed sample from Samsung's Galaxy K (S5 Zoom) not long ago, and even got a glimpse of the alleged faux-leather front of the device before that. In the meantime, rumors swirled that Samsung wants to make the S4 Zoom successor a much more compact device, while keeping the 10x optical zoom ability.
Well, judging from the first claimed pictures of the cameraphone with the telescopic lens all the way out, it might have achieved that goal. Granted, the Galaxy K here is wrapped in what seems to be a silicon case, but it does look more slimmed-down than the bulky S4 Zoom indeed. We'll know by how much when we get the exact dimensions, of course.
Other than that, the Galaxy K's specs are said to be an upgrade to its predecessor, with a 4.8" Super AMOLED HD display, a six-core Samsung Exynos 5 Hexa SoC, and 2 GB of RAM. The all-important camera part has been improved, too, eventually getting a 20 MP rear-facing snapper with 10x optical zoom and a Xenon flash - an upgrade over the 16 MP camera on the Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom. The front-facing camera should be 2 MP, while Android 4.4.2 is said to be installed out of the box. What do you think of the design you see in the pics below?
