Is it a phone or digital camera? You will be amazed that it is both and works wonderfully well in both the modes. Samsung’s Galaxy K Zoom also looks like affordable and within reach for most smartphone mavens in India.

At Rs. 29,999, Galaxy K Zoom camera phone looks like one of the best things to have arrived. Unlike other smartphones that have 16 or 20 mega pixel camera, this handset has a complete camera that has almost every function of a high quality camera. Reviewers have already written reams of paper expressing their appreciation for the great handset and camera that the Galaxy K Zoom is.

The Samsung Galaxy K zoom is finally here in India and is subject of an Amazon exclusive in this market. Featuring a 4.8-inch Super AMOLED display, it’s powered by a hexa-core SoC. The phone will run on 4.4. KitKat with the same TouchWiz version we’ve seen on the Galaxy S5, but the biggest highlight is undoubtedly the camera on the phone. Let’s take a closer look at the camera that’s clearly the reason anyone should consider this phone.

The 20.7MP BSI sensor around the back is the star of the show and it’s one step ahead of a 16MP sensor featured on last year’s S4 Zoom. We were pretty impressed with the picture quality on the latter when we reviewed it last year.

Last year, Samsung had launched another smartphone with specialised camera capabilities, Samsung S4 Zoom which featured a 16MP camera with 10X optical zoom. It was priced at Rs.29,900.
