Word on the street has it that Samsung could be planning a new Galaxy Zoom device which goes by the name, Galaxy K. So far we’ve seen leaked photos, photo samples, and an invitation by Samsung which seems to suggest that the device could be announced on the 29th of April. Now thanks to a recent teaser uploaded by Samsung on Instagram, it seems that the device has all but been confirmed.
The video itself is pretty short, as is the case with most Instagram videos. The video (check it out above) shows off the Red Dot Design Museum and then the camera zooms in multiple times to show us the words on the side of the building. Now there’s no real need to zoom in so closely but we’re guessing is probably trying to tease the zoom effects of the upcoming handset/camera.
Not much is known about the Samsung Galaxy K right now, save for rumors, which includes a 4.8-inch Super AMOLED display with a 1280×720 HD resolution. It is also rumored to run on the hexa-core Samsung Exynos 5 chipset accompanied by 2GB of RAM, a 20MP rear-facing camera featuring 10x optical zoom, a front-facing 2MP camera, and it is also expected to come with Android 4.4.2 KitKat on board.
No word on how much it will cost or when it will be released, but it will be announced on the 29th of April according to the invitation. The event starts at 11AM local time (Singapore) which means that for those of us stateside, you can tune in at around 8PM. If you liked what you saw in the Galaxy S4 Zoom, check back with us on the 29th of April for the details.
