Samsung, today announced the new camera specialized smartphone, the Samsung Galaxy K zoom. Featuring a 20.7 megapixel primary camera with BSI CMOS sensor and Optical Image Stabiliser, Samsung aims to create dominance in the camera-specialised smartphone segment.
In midst of its falling market share (as announced in Samsung’s Quarterly report) and uninspiring next generation phones, Samsung has now made an effort by entering into an entirely different and highly specific segment, camera-specialised smartphones.
We have seen Samsung devices featuring 16 mega pixel camera (Galaxy S5), but this is something completely different. As Samsung states,
The Galaxy K zoom is a new smartphone that blends advanced digital camera technology with Samsung’s industry-leading Galaxy experience. It features effortless capturing ability, real optics, and a premium design, offering users the mobile solutions they need with the ability to create professional-quality visual content in a fun, easy–to-use device.
We can’t really comment on what this phone actually offers and how it performs on our benchmarks, as we are yet to review it, but looking at the specifics of the phone, and specially the 10x Optical Zoom along with OIS feature, this Galxy certainely looks promising.
Stay tuned for our complete review.
