Claimed first camera sample from the Samsung Galaxy K (S5 Zoom) appears

Samsung has allegedly thinned the so-called Galaxy K, an S4 Zoom successor, and made the lens much less protruding, despite that it has eventually kept the 10x optical zoom abilities. That's what we've been hearing so far, and we even got a picture of the device's back tipped, to prove that it will be a more compact cameraphone than last year's bulky contraption.
an official Samsung event invitation for April 29th, seems to confirm the title, at least in the "K" part. As a reminder, the phone is expected to have a 4.8" Super AMOLED screen with a 720 x 1280 resolution. Under the hood is a six-core Samsung Exynos 5 Hexa SoC. A Mali-T624 GPU handles graphics, and 2 GB of RAM is eventually included. The alleged 20 MP rear-facing snapper has 10x optical zoom and a Xenon flash, an upgrade over the 16 MP camera on the Samsung Galaxy S5. The front-facing camera should be 2 MP, while Android 4.4.2 is said to be installed out of the box.The rumor mill says that the device will be called Galaxy K, and
There is nothing much else to be told from a single picture, except that the camera focused on the background, instead of the shrubbery right in front, but the photo looks decent otherwise, and we are eagerly expecting to put the eventual Galaxy K through its paces.

If Samsung announced a new model, the Galaxy S5P, a version of the S5 that included a really nice camera with OIS and Xenon flash, that would be interesting. This thing, "Galaxy K", should remain in the lab. I'd rather have a better camera without a cell phone OS. Android, especially Samsung's "extra lag" version of it, does not making taking pictures any better.
