Samsung’s Galaxy K Zoom priced at €519 in Germany


Samsung has officially documented the pricing and availability information for its recently announced Galaxy K Zoom. According to the South Korean company, the camera/phone is set to go on sale in Germany next week and will set you back €519 — that’s €20 more than it priced for the rest of Europe when it launches later this month, and we’re struggling to see why. It’s not as if the German variant has any extra features, either. It’s the exact same model.

The K’s main attraction is definitely its 20.7-megapixel rear-facing camera, which is equipped with a CMOS sensor, 10x optical zoom and a dual-panel xenon flash for optimum results. Samsung has also redesigned its stock camera application exclusively for this new Zoom, so users will have the facility to alter the settings in order to take ‘professional grade’ photographs.

The handset isn’t too impressive with regards to internal components, but as the Galaxy K Zoom is primarily designed for aspiring photographers, any excess processing power should not be required, anyway. Housed inside its plastic outer shell, the device packs a 4.8-inch Super AMOLED display, 2GB of RAM, an Exynos 5 Hexa System-on-Chip with six CPU cores, a Mali-T624 GPU, 2GB of RAM, 8GB of internal flash memory (expandable up to 64GB via microSD), LTE, Bluetooth 4.0, NFC and a 2,430mAh removable battery

Unfortunately, we have no exact date for when this handset will launch, but be sure to check back for more information.
