Samsung Galaxy K Zoom hits UK stores tomorrow, 31 May

Samsung is releasing its Galaxy K Zoom smartphone come camera in the UK tomorrow, 31 May. It will be available from the official Samsung Experience Stores and other high street and online retailers, including Carphone Warehouse.

The Samsung Galaxy K Zoom is a capable 4G Android phone with a 4.8-inch 1280 x 720 Super AMOLED display and a "Hexa core" processor that is made up of 1.3GHz quad-core and 1.7GHz dual-core processors.

It sports Android 4.4 KitKat, 2GB of RAM and has 8GB of internal storage with a microSD card slot that is capable of expanding that by up to a further 64GB.

However, the main selling point of the K Zoom is that it also sports a 10x optical zoom lens and 20.7-megapixel BSI CMOS sensor. A xenon flash is housed on the rear to illuminate scenes more brightly than a vast majority of other smartphones that use LED flash units.
