Samsung Galaxy S5 Zoom image sample leaks

The first image sample for the forthcoming Samsung Galaxy S5 Zoom, or the Galaxy K as it could end up being called, has appeared on the internet.

Samsung recently sent out press invites to a launch event on April 29, and all signs point to a successor to last year’s Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom camera phone.

The invite features the phrase “Kapture the moment” alongside a giant K, which seems to be obscuring a device of some kind. The K is believed to be a reference to the code name for the next Zoom device, but the prominent branding suggests that we can expect a name change along those lines.

Now we appear to have evidence of what this Samsung Galaxy K can do. Dutch website KopenGalaxy5 recently published the above picture, which is a shot of shrubbery with the foreground elements blurred out and the background in focus.

The EXIF details for the picture reveal that the host device is a Samsung SM-C115. The Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom had the code SM-C101, so it clearly belongs to the same lineage (if genuine).

Expect the Samsung Galaxy S5 Zoom/Samsung Galaxy K to feature a 20.2-megapixel rear camera sensor with 10x optical zoom. Unlike the Samsung Galaxy S5, it’ll sport a 4.8-inch 720p HD display, which is significantly smaller and less sharp.

As for its external design, previous leaked images paint the picture of a slimmers device with a less protruding camera components. It’ll likely be a lot more usable as a phone than the Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom.

We’ll know more come April 29, no doubt.
