Samsung Galaxy K zoom to cost less than the Galaxy S5? European prices may start at €499
According to SamMobile, the Galaxy K zoom will be priced at €499 in the Netherlands. At the moment, an unlocked Galaxy S5 costs at least €600 there (and all over Europe, for that matter).
Besides having a possibly great camera on the back, the Samsung Galaxy K zoom offers all the features that you’d expect from a good mid-range smartphone, including: a 4.8 inch 720p Super AMOLED display, LTE connectivity, hexa-core Exynos 5 processor, 2GB of RAM, 8GB of internal memory, microSD card support, and a 2,430 mAh battery.
The Samsung Galaxy K zoom will be available in three color versions: black, white, and blue. Is anyone looking forward to buying it?

Excellent low light shots.......Look better then over-saturated colours Lumia produces.

Phonearena, 1020 vs K zoom as soon as possible.

Well the camera on K isn't any more spectacular than 1020. Of course the zoom makes a big difference when using that.

You mean like ss does with their screens?
17. tech2 (Posts: 2152; Member since: 26 Oct 2012)
Yup. Its called amoled which is the same screen technology used by Lumia 1020. Now imagine over-saturated image on an over-saturated screen. Get the picture ? :)
Unlike SS Lumia don't have the feature to switch to Adobe RGB which produces THE most accurate screen (even better then LCDs):http://www.phonearena.com/news

Wait so are justifying your comment? Since when does my pics on my wife's 1020 stay on the phone? Lol okay.. also using PA as a screen reference? Why stop there...SS screen tech it not at all what I would consider the best.. isn't about my preferences or do you let others tell you what is better?

'Wait so are justifying your comment?'
Weren't you the one who went off topic and took a sling at SS's screen tech on a camera article ? I was merely replying not justifying.
'Since when does my pics on my wife's 1020 stay on the phone? Lol okay.. '
Its upto you what you do with your wife's pic. You may enlarge it hang t above your bed or you may keep it in your wallet its upto you. But whenever you take ur picture through your smartphone your first reference point is from that phone's display on the basis of which you judge the picture and decide to share. Not to mention most people would want to view your wife's photo on their mobile. ;)
also using PA as a screen reference?
If you actually bothered to click on the link you'd realize its not PA's reference, PA merely reported the news. What if I give you displaymate's link would you believe that or you'll find a excuse to disregard that too ?
'Why stop there...SS screen tech it not at all what I would consider the best isn't about my preferences.'
Its YOUR opinion the experts beg to differ.http://www.displaymate.com/Gal
do you let others tell you what is better?
No. That's why I bought my GS5 before any review came out. I went instore and fell in love with its gorgeous display.

I'm not getting into your copy reply fest but my reply was to your jab at Lumia devices... Ss makes everything over saturated but you still jab at lumias.. Its pathetic that you need to justify your love of Ss by taking jabs at others. Glad you love your phone but a screen is only as good as preferences no matter what scientific bs that you try and feed everyone.

And have you owned a lumia phone? I can adjust colours as what i want on my Lumia 925. However, i have to say that the Galaxy K zoom looks much better than its previous predecessor. If the price is reasonable, i will get one too as i prefer android to wp

I thought I wanted to trade in my Note 3 for the Galaxy K Zoom....
Now there's no doubt in my mind. If AT&T brings on the K Zoom. I'm getting one immediately!! I want this phone! 20 MP, 10x optical zoom, OIS and not crappy hardware... I'm sold! TAKE MY MONEY!!!

Note 3 user too here, keeping it but buying K Zoom.

The price really needs to be kept down. The camera, for most purposes, is markedly inferior to the Sony RX100 and other top quality small cameras. While the addition of Android warrants some price increase, not many people will pay for too much price increase. Otherwise they will just get a very good camera and a very nice phone instead of this combo.
If we get $499 in the US without contract, that is about right. $400-450 would be better as that is the range of the existing S4 Zoom.

Not good but not bad either. Much better than s4 zoom.

Huh really thats common sense it is just a mid range phone with $150 level P&S camera optics.
10. hung2900 (Posts: 801; Member since: 02 Mar 2012)
This phone is not a common mid-range phone. Exynos 5260 is much much better than Ssnapdragon S600 while the best mid-range phone now utilizing Quad-core Cortex A7 Snapdragon S400 The screen is RGB Super Smoled 720 with more than 300ppi- crisp enough.

13. ashouhdy (Posts: 44; Member since: 31 Oct 2013)

Variable aperature till f/18 .., all in a slim sexy device running android kitkat with hexcore CPU crisp 330ppi screen the Antutu scores for this CPU is high enough hitting 30,000 2GB ! PERFECT samsung

PC Magazine says the US doesn't get the Galaxy K Zoom with the phone:
"The Galaxy K Zoom is coming out in May in several countries, but there are no U.S. release plans. This may be because Samsung's two previous connected cameras, the Galaxy Camera and Galaxy S4 Zoom, failed to sell many units through AT&T."

Fukc pc magazine.
