Samsung renames the Galaxy K zoom before launching it in Korea, calls it Galaxy Zoom2

The Galaxy K zoom was announced in April as the successor to last year’s Galaxy S4 Zoom, and is currently available to buy only in a few markets. Starting this Friday, the device will be released in South Korea, and the interesting part is that it won’t be called Galaxy K zoom, but Galaxy Zoom2. We don’t know why Samsung chose to rename the handset, but this seems to be a Korea-only thing anyway. 

The Samsung Galaxy Zoom2 will be sold only via the third-largest South Korean mobile carrier (LG U+), for 693,000 KRW. While that means around $680, we’re hoping that the price of the K zoom won’t be this high when it launches in the US.

The K zoom / Zoom2 offers a large 20.7MP rear camera with 10x optical zoom and Xenon flash, being a rarity in the smartphone world. The device also features a 4.8-inch 720p display, LTE, a hexa-core Exynos 5260 processor, 2GB of RAM, 8GB of expandable internal memory, and Android 4.4 KitKat.
