After launching Galaxy S4 zoom last year, Samsung is back again with another camera-specialized phone. Galaxy K Zoom is the camera-edition of Samsung Galaxy S5. Photography lovers are the target audience of this device. Priced at Rs. 29,999 is highly expensive than S4 zoom. Let’s discuss the specifications, if the device is worth your money or not!


Touted as a cam-phone, this device displays a high 20.7 Megapixel camera. The BSI sensor is comparatively better than the 16 Megapixel of S4 zoom. To click a clear picture, optical zoom matters the most in a camera. These cam-phones have already created a history with 10x optical zoom. It is the highest optical zoom any Android phone has ever offered. Having 24-240 mm lens, the device can capture shake-free photographs. The aperture value of the device ranges between f/3.1 to f/6.3.

This pricey cam-phone is assisted with xenon LED Flash on the back. After clicking pictures, the primary use of a camera is to record videos. The slightly disappointing feature of the device is that it doesn’t support 4K video recording. It is limited to 1080p at 60fps.

Samsung Galaxy K Zoom sports a full HD 4.8 inch super AMOLED display. It has quad-core processor with dual 1.7GHz and second dual 1.3GHz allied processors. Boosting with 2GB RAM, this phone has a mediocre internal storage of 8 GB. You can expand the memory via micro-SD card till 64 GB. It is backed with a mere 2340mAh battery, which isn’t sufficient for such elite phone. The connectivity options of the phone include Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, Micro-USB, and Near Field Communication (NFC).

The last word:

This device isn’t a smart buy, majorly for two reasons. First it is priced too high, and second there are many alternatives available in the market in the same (or even below) that price bracket.
