Its good news folks.
The long awaited Samsung Galaxy K Zoom is finally available for
preorder with Amazon India. The pre-order price for this phone is
Rs.29,999 Amazon is also giving Rs.6000 worth goodies free with this
phone. They included an Auto-pop cover coupon, 6 movie tickets, a
32GB micro SD card and coupons on watches and handbags on Amazon. To
avail this offer you must be among the first 1000 people to order
this phone. You can pre-order from here.
The Galaxy K Zoom is
an innovative attempt by Samsung to get a great camera on board a
phone, for those serious photographers. Its a bit unlike the Samsung
Galaxy Camera. Where the Galaxy Camera looked more like a Camera, the
K Zoom looks like any standard Samsung Android phone, except for that
big BSI sensor based camera at its back.
The phone should not
be doubted on its photographic abilities. The phone comes with a
whopping 20.7MP BSI sensor based camera with a Xenon flash giving you
one of the best image reproduction even in low light. The phone also
comes with OIS [Optical Image Stabiliser] which will give you
distortion free imaging. It also has a 10X optical zoom. The camera
supports HD recording as well. The features packed with this phone is
on par with any midrange digital camera/camcorder so I would
definitely say it is a woth it buy, if you were in lookout for a
phone with a stellar camera.
On the hardware
specifications as well Samsung has not disappointed its users. The
phone is meant to be a flagship, and has the features of one as well.
It comes with a whopping 2GB RAM, along with the Samsung Exonys 5
processor, which is a combination of Cortex A-7 and A-15 cores. Along
with this is bundled a Mali T-624 graphic card, which is powerful
enough to generate some crisp and detailed images on the beautiful
Super AMOLED HD display on this phone. It should present no issues
with even heavy games. The only pitfall is the small 8GB ROM
available with the phone. However it has an expendable memory of
32GB, and guess what as mentioned above you are going to get a 64GB
microSD card for free from Amazon, so no worries on storing your
favourite moments on the phone. The icing on the top for this phone
is that it runs on Kitkat 4.4.2 along with Samsung TouchWiz. The
phone also supports BlueTooth V4 and USB On the go[OTG] as well. The
phone can work with 3G/2G sim cards and supports a wide variety of
signal strengths, so can be used in most foreign countries as well.
Samsung is also
including certain free goodies along with this phone. Its offering
free Bitcasa, Dropbox, Sharelens, and Picsplay pro for a free trail.
For this price point I would definitely recommend the phone, if you
are looking for a brilliant camera as well. As this phone will be
quite popular Samsung will surely provide future upgrades and folks
at Cynogenmod should get CM working for it. Custom ROM/Cynogen Mod
support is one thing I always look out for when buying a phone.
So go ahead and buy
it and post your thoughts in the comments below.
