Samsung Galaxy K Zoom recommended retail price set at €519 in Germany

Samsung Galaxy K Zoom recommended retail price set at €519 in Germany
Not long after Samsung announced its new Galaxy K Zoom smartphone-camera hybrid, we told you that the device could cost around €500 in Europe. And we were right.

Samsung today revealed that the K Zoom would be available in Germany starting mid-May for the recommended retail price of €519. While this means $720 in US dollars, we don’t really expect Samsung to sell the Galaxy K Zoom for that much Stateside. Instead, the device will probably / hopefully cost less than $600 (thus less than the Galaxy S5 flagship smartphone).

Introduced by Samsung as an upgraded successor to last year’s Galaxy S4 Zoom, the K Zoom runs Android 4.4 KitKat, and features a 20.7MP rear camera with 10x optical zoom. This should “empower users to effortlessly capture and share their most important everyday moments in stunning clarity.”

Camera aside, the Samsung Galaxy K Zoom can be seen as a bulkier, mid-end brother of the Galaxy S5. It offers a 4.8-inch Super AMOLED display with 720 x 1280 pixels, LTE, 2GB of RAM, hexa-core Samsung Exynos 5260 processor, and 8GB of expandable internal memory.
