Samsung Galaxy K zoom up for pre-order in the UK for £400, ships out May 29th
It was earlier rumored that the Galaxy K zoom, successor to the Galaxy S4 zoom and the Samsung’s latest attempt at a crossover of both smartphone and dedicated camera, would be priced at 499 Euro and go up on sale sometime in late May. While that info was not confirmed, it seems it was accurate – the Galaxy K zoom has gone up for pre-order in the UK for £400 in white, black and blue colors, and will start shipping out to consumers on May 29th, which is a week from now.
If that price sounds a bit steep to you (which it is), you can use a promo code to get a 10 percent discount – simply enter the code NPR-14G-QKY-WSZ to reduce the final price when ordering the Galaxy K zoom, though we’re guessing the price will go down on its own when the device launches on third-party retailers.
The Galaxy K zoom features a 20.7 MP 1/2.3 BSI CMOS camera sensor with 10x optical zoom, Xenon flash and optical image stabilization. The K zoom offers a total of 28 shooting modes and comes with a redesigned camera UI that looks similar to what is offered in the Galaxy S5; the device itself looks quite similar to Samsung’s latest flagship, even including the dimpled back that debuted on the Galaxy S5.
Other hardware details on the device include a 4.8-inch 720p screen, hexa-core Exynos 5 Hexa 5260 processor with two 1.7GHz Cortex-A15 cores and four 1.3GHz Cortex-A7 cores, 2 GB RAM, 8 GB internal memory, 2.1 MP front shooter and a 2430 mAh battery. As far as connectivity goes, the K Zoom comes with Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0LE, GPS, NFC and HSPA+ (42 Mbps), and runs on Android 4.4 KitKat.
