Samsung Galaxy K zoom LTE: A camera in a phone

Is your current phone not producing sufficiently good photos? Samsung didn’t think so and hence they decided to pack 20.7 megapixels CMOS sensor, 10x Optical zoom lens and 1080p/60fps video recording into an Android phone and name it, the Samsung Galaxy K zoom.

In case you don’t see the need for what you would call a “camera-phone”, Samsung made a nice little video to promote the use cases of Galaxy K zoom. You can find the embedded video below.

Samsung Galaxy K zoom is could be the most complete “camera-phone” yet with 10x optical zoom and Xenon Flash/OIS plus a large CMOS sensor which is, in theory, a great combination to take night photos given that this is a real slim and small design.
With these hardware specifications, Samsung innovates with the internals.

Selfie Alarm sounds like a fun proposition to take selfie, where you choose where your head would in the composition of the selfie and the alarm will hint you that the selfie is turning out to be what you wanted.

AE/AF Separation is even more intriguing because you can lock in the exposure on focus object and adjust the background exposure accordingly. Again in theory it might be wonderfully great to take images.

At SGD 798 without contract or a Singtel 2 year Value plan at SGD 268, Samsung Galaxy K zoom is not your top of the line phone. Instead, it is made for a niche market that may include selfies fanatics...
