The Samsung Galaxy K Zoom will launch in the UK tomorrow, May 31, at selected retailers.

If you fancy getting your hands on the camera-centric Samsung Galaxy S5 variant, you’ll be able to do so from Samsung Experience Stores and Carphone Warehouse tomorrow.

“We’re excited to introduce the Samsung Galaxy K Zoom to the UK market, giving our customers the convenience and connectivity of a Galaxy smartphone with a professional grade camera for a unique, all-in-one mobile experience,” said Simon Stanford, VP of IT and Mobile at Samsung UK and Ireland. “Perfect for taking incredible photos and sharing them quickly with your friends and family, the Galaxy K Zoom will help our customers stay stylish and connected at all times, wherever they are.”

Carphone Warehouse is offering the K Zoom for free on contracts starting at £38 per month. There’s no word on SIM-free pricing as yet.

The pre-order price on the Samsung website was for £400 though.
