Samsung Galaxy K Zoom Review: Smartphone meets Camera, Take 2

If there’s one thing the Galaxy K Zoom proves, it’s that Samsung’s engineers don’t hang around playing chequers – this is a really stunning redesign of the S4 Zoom concept from a year ago. It’s better across the board, with the main improvement being a form factor that’s actually pocketable, being 15mm thick for much of its length and with the camera hump (an extra 4mm or so) fairly smoothly integrated. There’s still no mistaking this for anything but a camera-centric phone, but at least it is a phone, whereas last year’s S4 Zoom was far more evidently a standalone camera bolted onto the back of a phone screen.

Samsung, today, unveiled the successor to the Galaxy S4 Zoom — dubbed the Galaxy K Zoom. The handset has already leaked numerous times in the past few weeks so its announcement should not really come as a surprise.

The K Zoom is a hybrid between a smartphone and a point ‘n’ shoot camera. It sports a design that is similar to the Galaxy S5 inside a body that is twice (20.2mm) as thick as the former.
