A little over a month ago, Samsung unveiled the Galaxy K zoom. The handset could be thought of as the successor to last year’s Galaxy S4 Zoom, a handset which felt more camera than smartphone, but we guess if you’re really into photography and would like a phone as well, perhaps these sort of devices appeal to you.
That being said, if you’re an avid Vine user, you might be interested to learn that Samsung and Twitter have teamed up to create a special Vine app for the Galaxy K zoom device. The app, for the most part, will have all of Vine’s features and whatnot, but the main difference here is that the the app will come with a zoom button on the recording screen, thus allowing Vine users to zoom in using the Galaxy K zoom’s camera while recording videos to upload.
It sounds like an extremely trivial feature and we’re not sure if this is enough to promote the handset or get people to hop on board, but if you already bought the phone, perhaps this exclusive Vine app might be of interest to you. According to Sun Hong Lim, SVP of Mobile Communications Business at Samsung Electronics, “With this latest collaboration, Samsung continues to demonstrate our commitment to innovation and supporting the needs of our consumers, including that of their creativity.”
He adds, “The Vine app for the Galaxy K zoom capitalizes on the device’s advanced zoom camera features to further empower artistic expression and continue invigorating the mobile experience of our consumers.” No word on when Samsung will be launching the app, but if you’re a Galaxy K zoom owner, or thinking about getting the phone, then you might want to keep an eye out for it.
