Samsung is all set to launch K zoom, its latest camera-centric smartphone in its home ground Korea and it has renamed it Galaxy Zoom 2 for the Korean market. The Galaxy K zoom was announced in April as the successor to last year’s Galaxy S4 Zoom in Singapore, and is currently available to buy only in a few markets. We don’t know why Samsung chose to rename the handset, but it seems to be a Korea-only thing.
All the features of the Zoom 2 are similar to the K zoom, offering a 20.7MP rear camera with Xenon Flash, BSI Sensor, OIS and 10x optical zoom with a display of 4.8-inch (1280 x 720 pixels) HD Super AMOLED display and powerd by a 1.7 GHz Dual Core + 1.3 GHz Quad Core Exynos (5260) processor with Mali-T624 GPU. The camera feature being a rarity in the smartphone world. The mobile phone runs under the Android 4.4.2 KitKat operating system and also sports a wide range of specific Samsung features and applications loaded on top of it.
Moreover, the smartphone includes a 2MP front camera for video calling. Sadly, its back camera is only capable of full HD video recording, and not 4K, as the Galaxy S5.It has 2GB RAM and comes with 16GB of internal memory instead of 8GB of storage in the international variant. It has 4G LTE, DLNA, Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac, Bluetooth v4.0 LE, GPS + GLONASS, NFC and packs a 2,430mAh battery.
The Samsung Galaxy Zoom 2 would be available in Shimmery White, Charcoal Black, and Electric Blue colors. It will be sold only via the third-largest South Korean mobile carrier (LG U+) for 693,000 KRW (US$ 680 / Rs. 40,450 approx) and is supposed to launch exclusively on LG U+ on June 13th.
