The Samsung Galaxy K Zoom has been launched in Accra at the Premium Samsung Experience Shop at the Icon House, Airport City.
Building on from last year’s Galaxy S4 Zoom, the Galaxy K Zoom offers a slimmer body with most of the smartphone components built from the Galaxy S5. The Super AMOLED screen has grown from 4.3 to 4.8 inches which makes viewing more pleasurable.
“The K Zoom has been crafted for portability, fun, ease and captures brilliant images and videos. It also comes stocked with the best apps and functions for dynamic consumers on the move,” said Jaspreet Singh, Business Leader for Handheld Products, Samsung.
“The Galaxy K Zoom allows consumers to capture moments with an amazing 10x optical zoom and still stay connected and productive,” he explained.
The device, which is designed to offer the best camera experience in a mobile phone, is armed with a 10x optical zoom that retracts into its remarkably slim body and a 20.7 megapixel BSI CMOS sensor. The Galaxy K zoom captures crisp, sharp images, as well as Full HD videos at 60p, even when zoomed in.
These features put the K Zoom in the perfect position to serve the everyday photography needs of for instance, journalists, students, corporate individuals and stay home moms to run their day to day lives while capturing the best of these very important moments.
As part of activities marking the launch of the Galaxy K Zoom in Ghana, Samsung will be giving users and hopeful users of the phone the opportunity to become famous in a competition dubbed “ru K Zoom Selfie Ready.” This competition will make use of the Selfie Alarm feature on the Galaxy K Zoom. The competition will require participants to take beautiful selfies of themselves and post on Samsung Social Media platforms to stand the chance of featuring on a Samsung billboard. Details of the competition will be revealed subsequently.
The compact and highly portable Galaxy K zoom which comes with an attractive 24 month warranty, will officially go on sale on the 4th of July 2014.
