Samsung Galaxy K zoom now has a special Vine app that makes use of its powerful optics

Samsung announced that users of its new Galaxy K zoom smartphone-camera hybrid now have a Vine app that was specially enhanced for their device. The Vine app makes use of the 10x optical zoom capabilities of the new Galaxy, featuring zoom buttons on the recording screen - thus enabling users to zoom in and out whenever they create a Vine video. The app is exclusive to the Galaxy K zoom, and was created after an official collaboration between Samsung and Twitter (which owns Vine).

“With this latest collaboration, Samsung continues to demonstrate our commitment to innovation and supporting the needs of our consumers, including that of their creativity. The Vine app for the Galaxy K zoom capitalizes on the device’s advanced zoom camera features to further empower artistic expression and continue invigorating the mobile experience of our consumers,” said Sun Hong Lim, Senior Vice President of Mobile Communications Business at Samsung Electronics.

As of last month, the Galaxy K zoom is already available to buy in some markets around the world. It hasn’t been released in the US yet, but it’ll probably debut there in the near future. Running Android 4.4 KitKat, the Samsung Galaxy K zoom features a 4.8-inch 720p Super AMOLED display, LTE connectivity, hexa-core Exynos processor, 2GB of RAM, and a large 20.7MP BSI rear camera with Xenon flash (and 10x optical zoom, as already mentioned).

Man. Every time I think I don't want this phone because it only has 8 GB of internal storage I see it and I want it all over again. I might actually trade in my Note 3 when this comes to AT&T........

Personally I like the OS of K Zoom better, but otherwise I'd have 1020. Samsung camera software is very good, but not as good as Nokia one.

bigger sensor, oversampling technology, taking images in RAW, lossless zoom, HAAC , better lens and the most important one, Nokia's imaging algorithms that imaging pioneers like Sony is having a hard time to match it, let alone samsung .
btw, we r talking about a last year's model compared to a recently announced model...imagine how the 1020 successor will be.
Galaxy phones and tablets are amazing, specially the Note series, but when talking about phone photography, Lumia and Pureview are unbeatable. Actually, not just Lumia pureview models that can excel in imaging, low end lumia models r quite good too, Gsmarena has reviewed the 630 and has found it an excellent shooter for its category and even the category above it...ohh and if someone has forgotten, the lumia 720 with its carl ziess lens has brought the HTC one (m7) to shame ( they were compared with each other in last year's MWC)

you can get the cheaper sony wx300 with 20X zoom and better optics. it acts like those silly lens style sony qx cameras but it's a full-blown camera with its own viewfinder. you can just use your smartphone to control it via wi-fi. your smartphone can show what the wx300 sees.

haha... promotion

So instead of Vine working on updating their WP app for the 20 million people out there, they've decided to work on an app for a phone that might sell 100K... Good to see they know where the priorities are.
