No, not happy in that way. But Samsung’s chubby smartphone-camera hybrid makes the lady in this promo video smile non-stop, so yeah, we stand by our headline. Silly jokes aside, this 2:30 video is a pretty good rundown of what makes the K Zoom special.
Following a first-gen version that leaned towards the point-and-shoot category, Samsung worked to make the Galaxy K Zoom more useable as a smartphone. The result is a thick, if not huge device, that at least some users will find nice enough to carry as their daily driver.
The K Zoom’s namesake optical zoom lens is what sets it apart from every smartphone out there. But the device has a bunch of other tricks up its sleeve, including optical image stabilization, Xenon flash, 60 fps Full HD recording, a large BSI sensor, and a variety of more or less handy software features including Selfie Alarm, which simplifies the arduous task of shooting one’s own face, and Pro Suggest, which suggests filters and settings based on lighting conditions and scene.
Samsung has yet to reveal pricing and availability features for the Galaxy K Zoom, but rest assured you’ll find them here as soon as we get them.
