Samsung Unveils Galaxy K zoom Camera-Specialized Smartphone


Ridgefield Park, NJ—Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd, unveiled its new “camera-specialized” smartphone, the Samsung Galaxy K zoom. The smartphone blends advanced digital camera technology with Samsung’s Galaxy experience. With easy capture capabilities and enhanced optics, it’s designed to provide users with mobile solutions as well as the ability to create “professional-quality” visual content.

“With the introduction of the Galaxy K zoom, Samsung continues to demonstrate our commitment to creating products that meet the diverse demands of our consumers,” said Sun Hong Lim, senior vice president, Mobile Communications, Samsung Electronics. “The new Galaxy K zoom empowers users to effortlessly capture and share their most important everyday moments in stunning clarity, with the convenience and connectedness of a Galaxy smartphone, for a unique, all-in-one mobile experience.”

As a camera-specialized smartphone, it's built with an advanced technical camera system developed to offer the control and functionality of a digital camera. The slim Galaxy K zoom is equipped with a new retracting lens technology that provides 10x optical zoom. Other notable photo features include a 20.7 megapixel BSI CMOS sensor, enhanced low-light performance and an optical image stabilizer (OIS) to reduce blur caused by movement—for both still photos and Full HD video. In addition, the device’s Xenon flash provides a brighter light than LEDs to improve the quality of the image.

The smartphone also integrates more advanced camera usability features and functions, including AF/AE separation (autofocus/autoexposure separation), the next-generation pro suggest mode, which offers five optimized filter settings, a selfie alarm that allows users to take timed selfies, and object tracking for a clearer focused shot of moving subjects.

Samsung’s compact Galaxy K zoom also sports an ergonomic grip, an ultra-power-saving mode, S Health Lite for personalized fitness and lifestyle coaching, and the Studio app that lets users edit their pictures and videos. Pricing and availability to be announced.
