No Lollipop for Samsung Galaxy K zoom reports Samsung U.K.

No Lollipop for Samsung Galaxy K zoom reports Samsung U.K.
Baseball fans know that the letter "K" stands for a strikeout. The Samsung Galaxy K zoom has apparently struck out in its bid to garner an update to Android 5.0. That is the word from Samsung Mobile U.K., who sent out a tweet revealing that the camera-centric phone would end its remaining days running on Android 4.4.2 KitKat. That is the build of Android that the phone was launched with.

While the tweet from Samsung Mobile U.K. didn't exactly give a reason for the cancellation of the update, there is speculation that the phone's outdated hardware would not allow for a smooth user experience with Android 5.0. The handset is powered by an older Exynos 5 chipset (hexa-core 1.7GHz CPU and the Mali-T624 GPU) and offers 2GB of RAM.

The main feature of the Galaxy K zoom is the 20.7MP rear camera which comes with OIS, a Xenon flash and 10x optical zoom. If you own the device, you still have a serviceable handset (even without Android 5.0) with a great rear camera.
