Need more proof that Samsung is looking to launch their next-generation point-and-shoot camera phone tomorrow? The Samsung Galaxy K — which could also be seen as a Samsung Galaxy S5 Zoom — seems to have been teased by the South Korean company on Instagram.
They posted a simple video of a building of the Red Dot Design Museum building (where the event is being hosted) being zoomed in on, with each level of zoom showing more crisp details. It looks like they’ve stuffed a pretty capable camera sensor into this thing, which rumors suggest is a 20 megapixel 10x optical zoom element accompanied by a Xenon flash.
We’ve already seen shots of the thing leaked in the wild, which you can see in the photos above and below. Samsung went with a more phone-like form factor for this one, as opposed to the curved and contoured shape of the original.
Exact specs still have yet to be confirmed, but the latest rumors say the hardware comes out to be a pretty decent device:
- 4.8-inch Super AMOLED 720p display
- Samsung Exynos 5 5260 hexa-core processor
- 2GB of RAM
- 20-megapixel camera with 10x optical zoom and Xenon flash
- 2-megapixel front-facing camera
- Android 4.4.2 KitKat.
The Instagram post didn’t reveal much else about the device itself, though you never really expect to get more than just a sip or a taste from these things. All should be told by tomorrow, though, as Samsung’s Singapore event will kickoff at approximately 11am local time. We’ll be sure to deliver all the details once they arrive.
