Samsung Galaxy K Zoom won’t be getting Lollipop in the UK


Last updated: August 3rd, 2015 at 06:25 UTC+02:00

According to Samsung Mobile UK the Galaxy K Zoom will not be upgraded to the latest iteration of Android OS. Released last year the handset is still running on KitKat. The reason why the Galaxy K Zoom won’t be getting Android Lollipop is unknown right now, but it could be that the hardware is outdated and it makes it difficult for the software to operate.

Galaxy K Zoom is a special kind of device. It’s one of Samsung’s devices that feature a microSD memory card slot which allows expansion by up to 64GB. The device was made with extreme camera performance in mind which is why the Galaxy K Zoom packs an impressive 20.7MP primary camera with 10x optical zoom, OIS, Xenon & LED flash and more. Other tech specs include a 4.8-inch display with Gorilla Glass 3 and a hexa-core Exynos 5260 SoC which is allegedly one of the reasons why the phone won’t be getting Lollipop.
