Samsung has announced the launch of the new camera specialised smartphone, the Samsung GALAXY K zoom LTE, in Singapore.
The GALAXY K zoom LTE is a new smartphone that blends advanced digital camera technology with Samsung’s industry-leading GALAXY experience.
It features effortless capturing ability, real optics, and a premium design, offering users the mobile solutions they need with the ability to create professional-quality visual content in a fun, easy–to-use device.
“The Samsung GALAXY K zoom LTE seamlessly blends industry-leading GALAXY phones with a powerful digital camera system that will effortlessly transform life’s moments into memories,” said Irene Ng, Vice President, Marketing, Samsung Asia Pte Ltd. “As the only smartphone on the market that features a unique retracting lens with 10x optical zoom, and a slim design that appeals with an ergonomic grip and sleek modern look, the GALAXY K zoom LTE is ideal for the mobile user who wants the most powerful camera system in a smartphone.”
Real Optics & Effortless Capturing
The GALAXY K zoom LTE offers an advanced technical camera system designed to offer the control and functionality of a professional camera, ensuring that the important moments are never missed and always captured with complete clarity.
It is equipped with new retracting lens technology that provides 10x optical zoom in a remarkably slim and chic body.
Other notable features include the 20.7 megapixel BSI CMOS sensor for ultra-clear, ultra-detailed images. It excels in low light conditions, and provides Optical Image Stabilizer (OIS) to reduce blur caused by movement.
These specifications enable the device to deliver pictures and video (Full HD) that are crisp and sharp, even when zoomed in and in low light. In addition, the device’s Xenon Flash provides a brighter light than LEDs to improve the quality of the image with natural brilliance.
The new device also integrates the most advanced camera usability features and functions, including AF/AE Separation (/Auto Focus/ Auto Exposure Separation) for the precise balance of light and clarity, next-generation Pro Suggest mode which offers 5 optimised filter settings, Selfie Alarm that allows users to take timed selfies with ease, and object tracking for a clear, focused shot of a moving subject. Each feature comes with a simple User Interface, allowing users to easily capture photos and videos with ground-breaking quality, in any situation.
The compact and highly portable GALAXY K zoom LTE features an ergonomic grip and sleek, stylish lines that feel soft and comfortable in the hand.
Additionally, the GALAXY K zoom LTE offers all the features that consumers want in a flagship GALAXY smartphone, such as Ultra Power Saving Mode for minimising the battery consumption, S Health Lite for personalised fitness and lifestyle coaching, and a Studio app to allow users to easily edit their pictures and videos.
