If you think your smartphone's camera is not good enough anymore, it's high time to replace it with something more powerful. Take a look at Samsung's latest offering - the Galaxy K Zoom phone that comes with a whooping 20.7 megapixel sensor.
The Galaxy K Zoom is basically a camera with phone features. It sure allows you to make calls, send text messages, and browse the web using cellular network, but the distinctive and rather bulky design clearly says that it is device made for taking pictures. It offers a state-of-art sensor and optics as well as 10x zoom and optical image stabilization. The sensor is a 20.7 megapixel BSI CMOS unit that should deliver excellent performance in low-light shooting environments. A bright Xenon lamp for capturing images in complete darkness is not missing, too.
All compontents were designed to work closely with the software, which is equipped a number a interesting features. Those include automatic exposure separation, Pro Suggest mode, and a Selfie Alarm for timed autoportraits. Samsung's TouchWiz-based apps are also in tow so when you buy the Galaxy K Zoom, you get basically the same experience as on the Galaxy S5.
As a smartphone, the Galaxy K Zoom belongs to the mid-tier. It has a 4.8-inch Super AMOLED display with a 1280 x 720 resolution, a quad-core processor with 2GB of RAM, 8GB of internal storage space, a 2 megapixel front facing camera, and a microSD expansion slot. Connectivity includes Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, and NFC.
We do not know when Samsung's new camera-phone will head for Europe and how much it will cost. Assuming it will be out soon, are you planning on getting one? We find the selfie feature particularly difficult to resist.
