SAMSUNG GALAXY K ZOOM AVAILABLE TO BUY IN THE UK FROM 31 MAY

30 May, 2014, London, UK – Samsung Electronics today announced that customers in the UK will be able to buy the Galaxy K zoom from selected online and high street retailers, including Samsung Experience Stores and Carphone Warehouse from Saturday 31st May. 

Combining Samsung’s industry leading Galaxy experience with advanced digital camera technology, the Galaxy K zoom features effortless capturing ability, real optics, and a premium design – so you can take professional-quality photos from a device that you can also use as your primary mobile phone.

Featuring a new retracting lens technology which provides a 10x optical zoom in a remarkably slim and chic body, the Galaxy K zoom also has a 20.7 megapixel BSI CMOS sensor for ultra-clear and detailed images. It’s great in low light conditions as it features Optical Image Stabilisation (OIS) to reduce blur caused if you move whilst taking a shot, so you always get pictures and video in Full HD, even when zoomed-in and when you are in low light conditions. Plus, it has a Xenon Flash which provides a brighter light than LEDs to improve the quality of the image you take. The Galaxy K zoom also has a next-generation Pro Suggest mode which gives you 10 optimised filter settings and a Selfie Alarm so you can take timed selfies with no hassle.

Simon Stanford, Vice President of IT & Mobile Division, Samsung UK & Ireland said: “We’re excited to introduce the Samsung Galaxy K zoom to the UK market, giving our customers the convenience and connectivity of a Galaxy smartphone with a professional grade camera for a unique, all-in-one mobile experience. Perfect for taking incredible photos and sharing them quickly with your friends and family, the Galaxy K zoom will help our customers stay stylish and connected at all times, wherever they are.”

I've owned the Samsung K Zoom for a month or so and I am really impressed. It works fine as a smart phone. Much better than my Samsung Note 1. As for the camera, well it's brilliant. Any camera phone will take a picture up close, but nothing is as good as optical zoom. I can't believe how well the battery lasts. As I'm typing, it's been three days since charging and it's still at 49%. That's with data and wifi use. It also has an "ultra power saving" mode. In this mode it only uses 2 or 4 % a day. In this mode you only get a basic home screen with a few basic functions. All up, what a great phone. Slightly heavy, but I can live with that.
