Samsung Galaxy S5 Zoom will be called the Samsung Galaxy K; phone will be unveiled on April 29th
Earlier this month, we passed along some news about the camera-centric Samsung Galaxy S5 Zoom, mainly that the phone would be called the Samsung Galaxy K. That seems to have been confirmed on Sunday by Samsung. The Korean manufacturer has sent out invites to an event it calls Samsung Media Day on April 29th, at the Red Dot Design Museum in Singapore.

On the invite, it says "Kapture the moment," which sounds like something a camera would do. And of course, the use of the letter "K" obviously has some meaning (unless Sammy's ad team has gone daft). There is also a giant "K" on the invitation, which appears to have a phone inside the image of the letter.

It all adds up to an introduction of the Samsung Galaxy S5 Zoom, which apparently will be called the Samsung Galaxy K. The phone will have a 4.8 inch Super AMOLED screen with a 720 x 1280 resolution. Under the hood is a six-core Samsung Exynos 5 Hecta SoC. The Mali-T624 GPU handles graphics and 2GB of RAM is included. The 20MP rear-facing snapper has 10x optical zoom and a Xenon flash, an upgrade over the 16MP camera on the Samsung Galaxy S5. The front-facing camera is 2MP and Android 4.4.2 is installed out of the box.

Information like a precise launch date and pricing, will have to wait for April 29th when Samsung takes the wrapping off of its new camera-centric handset.
