It was a strange move to not name it Zoom 2 in the first place. Still a much better device than its predecessor, more compact, and improves in every single spec found on the original Zoom. What I would love is for Samsung to offer the Pro Sugget app in their Store, if not then i hope someone will get it ported to the S5.

I agree, I've been wondering where the heck did K Zoom came from anyway, why not S5 Zoom, similarly to the previous one...

Hopefully it will be called Zoom 2 and not Zoom2. Because that kind of stuff bothers me...

It looks like big, landline, cordless telephone...BUT hey, the more designs produced by SAMSUNG, LG, MOTOROLA, HTC, & Sony the better...helps to lower prices and forces innovation...

Samsung renamed it Samsung Galaxy Zoom 2 because in Korea there is already a handset called Galaxy 'K', which was similar to the Galaxy S back in 2010 (had a 3.7" screen instead), and that they didn't want to confuse the consumers. That's why it isn't called the Galaxy K Zoom in Korea. But outside Korea, there isn't a Galaxy K so it can be called 'K Zoom' with no worries.

@hassoups I am not applying only to K zoom. Their tablets and some of the smartphones' names are misleading too. Just my opinion. Why so serious?lol...
