Samsung Galaxy K Zoom

“This is a phone. With cool camera stuff.” That’s how Samsung’s Philip Berne describes the Galaxy K zoom (“K is for camera… if you’re German”), the company’s latest attempt to figure out how to fully marry an excellent smartphone with an excellent camera. It’s a technological achievement, with a retractable 10x zoom lens and 20.7-megapixel sensor crammed into the body of a smartphone. A thick, heavy smartphone more than twice as thick (20.2 mm) as the new Galaxy S5, but a smartphone nonetheless. And in addition to the camera hardware, the K zoom comes with a 4.8-inch, 720p Super AMOLED display, a hexa-core processor, and Android 4.4 plus all of Google’s trappings. And it makes phone calls — this isn’t just a camera that connects to the internet like the Galaxy Camera, Samsung says.
