Samsung’s new Camera – Phone Hybrid is wholly awesome. If you haven’t heard of it yet read this post we made on its release.
So here are some things you’ll find on (or with) the Galaxy K Zoom:
A 4.8 inch HD Super AMOLED display that means it’s smaller than both the S4 and the S5, a 20.7 Mega-pixel Sensor Camera which protrudes as a slight bump but extends while using and a 2MP front Camera.
The above are just basic things you should know about the phone. Here below are the main things that make the K Zoom stand out:
The main Camera is a 20.7 MP BSI CMOS shooter supporting optical image stabilization and 10x optical zoom.The optical zoom part of it is what leads to its funny protruding back. It has an aperture size of F3.1-6.3 with lens measurements at 24-240mm.
The camera uses powerful Xenon flash. Other features you’ll find are autofocus, touch focus, face detection, smile detection, blink detection, exposure compensation, burst mode, geo-tagging, HDR, panorama, macro mode, might mode, self-timer and can also record 1080p HD videos at 60fps. Not forgetting the selfie alarm support we had mentioned here. There is also “Pro Suggest” which will give you suggestions on the best configuration for the picture you want to take.
Included too is a front camera which is 2MP for video calls. It is not useful for anything else as selfies are better with the main camera.
Processor and Storage
The Galaxy K Zoom features a Hexa Core Enxyos 5 Processor meaning it has a 1.3 Ghz quad-core and 1.7 Ghz dual-core processor. That means the phone should be extremely fast?
It also comes with 2GB of RAM, 8GB internal storage and microSD support of up to 64GB, making sure you have enough storage for all your pictures
Network and Connectivity:
Supports 4G, 3G and 2G networks. Offers Wi-Fi: 802.11 a/b/g/n 2.4+5GHz, HT40 and Bluetooth 4.0 plus USB 2.0. NFC is also supported together with A-GPS plus GLONASS.
The phone runs Android KitKat (v.4.4) and comes with a 2,430 mAh battery guaranteeing long time use. Another thing worth noting is that the phone though bulky in look is only 200g.
