Samsung hints at Galaxy S5 Zoom reveal with "Kapture The Moment" event

Samsung has announced an event in Singapore, including a stylised invitation that could be a hint at the main event.

The conference will take place on 29 April, and judging by the nature of the announcement, featuring a giant "K" and slogan "Kapture the moment" the focal point of it could be the Galaxy 5S Zoom.

From previous leaks it has been surmised that Galaxy K is the codename for the Galaxy S5 Zoom, announced two months after the Galaxy S4.

Whether Samsung will keep the "K" for its new phone is conjecture, but it seems likely that they will continue in its trend of S-numbers.

The Federal Communications Commission (FCC), Phone Arena spotted, has also approved a new smartphone design submitted by Samsung going by the model number SM-C115.

The S5 Zoom should have a 20.2 megapixel camera with 10x optical zoom, not unlike the S4 Zoom, as well as a front-facing camera clocking in at around 2.1 megapixels, matching the Galaxy S5.

The display, reportedly, will be a 4.8inch super AMOLED with a 720 x 1280 pixel resolution, making it slightly smaller than its mainline predecessor the S5. This is roughly in line with how previous model the S4 Zoom fared against its cousin the Galaxy S4.

One area in which it won't be taking second place is under the hood, as allegedly the new series will pack a six-core Exynos 5 Hexa processor running at around 2.5 Ghz and 2GB of RAM.

The S5 Zoom will most likely run Android 4.4.2 KitKat, support wireless connectivity and feature a MicroSD slot, too.
