The Samsung Galaxy K, also referred to as the Samsung Galaxy S5 Zoom, isn’t exactly what you’d call a secret. The device – a blend between an Android smartphone and a 20MP point-and-shoot camera with optical zoom – got exposed in photos multiple times over the past few weeks, and its hardware specs are no mystery either.
What we have to share with you today, however, is not a leak. It is an official teaser (Click here to see it) coming straight from Samsung’s Instagram account – an image of the Red Dot Design Museum in Singapore, where “The Next Galaxy” is going to be announced on April 29. Clearly, the teaser hints at a device with superior (for a smartphone) zooming capabilities, and according to what is known so far, the Samsung Galaxy K will offer 10x optical zoom, just like last year’s Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom.
Of course, the Samsung Galaxy K (the name has yet to be confirmed, by the way) should be capable of a lot more than just taking photos and videos. It will also be a fully-functional Android smartphone, with a 4.8-inch 720 x 1280 pixel display, a hexa-core Exynos 5 SoC, and 2GB of RAM. Android 4.4.2 KitKat will come pre-loaded, along with Samsung’s TouchWiz interface in its latest form. A feature-rich camera application is assumed to be on board as well.
