Amidst all the rumors of this year’s “iPhone 6” expected to come with interchangeable lenses for its primary camera, Samsung recently announced the upcoming unveiling of a new addition to its Galaxy series – the Galaxy K – a smartphone which essentially highlights an impressive 20 megapixel primary cam.
Scheduled to be unveiled in a media gathering this April 29 in the Red Dot Design Museum in Singapore, the Galaxy K is far from Samsung’s first venture into the smartphone + digital camera spectrum of products, but it certainly is the most advanced incarnation of the device, should its rumored specifications and highlights prove to be true.
Basically, the Galaxy K is expected to come with a 20.2 megapixel camera that highlights 10 x optical zoom features, NOT digital zoom, alluding to its impressive sensor and internal imaging components.
Also expected to come with a 4.8 inch sized AMOLED screen with a screen resolution of 720 x 1280, the smartphone is also expected to come with Kit Kat preinstalled, to be powered by Samsung’s Exynos 5 hexa-core chip, 2 gigs of RAM and a Mali-T624 GPU.
Given its 20 megapixel 10 x optical zoom-capable camera, it is obvious that Samsung is aiming to grab the attention of photography enthusiasts who wish to have impressive cameras installed into their smartphones.
With Apple itself rumored to be in the process of coming up with a digital camera-enabled iPhone this year, it appears that there’s going to be an influx of high-spec camera phones this year.
