Samsung Galaxy K zoom to cost less than the Galaxy S5? European prices may start at €499
Samsung announced its brand new Galaxy K zoom this morning, saying that it would start selling it in May. While the company didn’t provide details about the price of the K zoom, we’re all expecting it to be quite expensive. After all, that 20.7MP rear camera with 10x optical zoom can’t possibly come cheap. However, it looks like the new smartphone-camera hybrid will be cheaper than Samsung’s Galaxy S5 flagship handset.

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). 

So perhaps the K zoom will be sold for around $500 when it lands in the US - despite the fact that €499 means around $690 at today’s exchange rates.

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?
