Samsung Galaxy K Zoom Review: Ultimate cameraphone?

Published by on Sep 1st, 2014, No Comments


The Korean electronics giant that brought the Galaxy brand name to the world – and made it extremely successful – is trying to fill every single niche in the smartphone market and slap the Galaxy name on it. Samsung realised with the Galaxy S4 Zoom that it took the shine from its flagship device, so completely renamed it this year.

What would have been the Galaxy S5 Zoom has become the Galaxy K Zoom and it is ready to take on any cameraphone on the market. It is equipped with a 10x optical zoom and OIS and if you were to see only its back, you would hardly recognize you are staring at an Android smartphone with a 4.8-inch Super AMOLED screen on the other side.

Check out some of the key features of the Galaxy K Zoom: (more…)

Samsung officially announces the Galaxy Alpha (video)

Published by on Aug 14th, 2014, No Comments


The much rumoured and leaked Galaxy Alpha has been officially announced by Samsung. It is basically a lightly stripped-down version of the Galaxy S5 flagship with a metal frame.

The Alpha is also much lighter and thinner than its big brother at a mere 6.7mm and 115 grams. Samsung said it took a “fresh approach” with the new handset’s looks, something it vowed to do in the face of a steep downturn in sales. (more…)

It is a highly anticipated phone. At least we won’t need to wait long to see what it is all about – it’s launching next month.

We’re hearing news of next-generation SoC chips, Quad HD displays and even some sort of wrap around screen as we saw with Samsung’s Project Youm: (more…)
