Samsung and Vine team up for the Galaxy K Zoom
The Samsung Galaxy K Zoom has just launched in the UK and it comes with a special version of Vine. The Galaxy K Zoom version features zoom buttons on the recording screen to make it easy to zoom in and out when creating a Vine video.
As the name suggests, zooming is a big feature of the Galaxy K Zoom. It’s one of very few smartphones to feature an optical zoom (a 10x zoom to be precise) and along with its 20.7 megapixel lens it’s a genuine compact camera replacement.
The original Samsung Galaxy Zoom suffered from being incredibly bulky but that’s a problem which has largely been overcome in its successor. The Galaxy K Zoom still isn’t thin, but at 16.6mm it is pocket sized.
Aside from the impressive camera and custom Vine app, users can look forward to a phone with a 4.8 inch 720 x 1280 Super AMOLED display with a pixel density of 306 pixels per inch. Under the hood there’s a hexa-core processor, with four cores running at 1.3GHz and two running at 1.7GHz. It also has 2GB of RAM, so it should be a solid performer and while there’s only 8GB of built in storage it also has a microSD card slot to expand that.
It also has all the connectivity options you’d expect such as 4G LTE and NFC and it runs Android KitKat, so it’s a fairly high end phone with a top tier camera, making it ideal for anyone who takes a lot of photos but doesn’t want to carry a separate camera with them.
The Samsung Galaxy K Zoom is out now on contracts starting from £38 per month with no upfront cost.
