Samsung Galaxy K Zoom will hit shelves tomorrow

Samsung has announced that the Galaxy K Zoom will go on sale in the UK tomorrow, 31 May, at online and bricks-and-mortar retailers (including, naturally enough, Samsung Experience Stores).

The K Zoom is a hybrid smartphone/camera, and it follows on from last year's Galaxy S4 Zoom, offering a 20.7 megapixel camera with 10x optical zoom (hence the name). It's less chunky than the previous S4 Zoom – though it's still considerably chunkier than your average smartphone, but there's no real way around that. Packing proper camera tech into a phone is always going to cause issues on the size front.

The K Zoom's other hardware specs include a 4.8in, 1280 x 720 resolution display, a hexa-core CPU (1.3GHz quad-core plus 1.7GHz dual-core), LTE support, 2GB of RAM and 8GB of storage, plus a microSD slot for expansion.

As for the price? The official Samsung online store has the device up for £400 on pre-order, which is £40 cheaper than the S4 Zoom debuted at. Carphone Warehouse has contracts with the handset free starting at £38 per month.

Simon Stanford, VP of IT & Mobile at Samsung UK & Ireland, said: "We're excited to introduce the Samsung Galaxy K zoom to the UK market, giving our customers the convenience and connectivity of a Galaxy smartphone with a professional grade camera for a unique, all-in-one mobile experience. Perfect for taking incredible photos and sharing them quickly with your friends and family, the Galaxy K zoom will help our customers stay stylish and connected at all times, wherever they are."
